When the police discover Laon naked and hungry in the street, they aren't quite sure what to make of the odd little child - how could they know that she is actually a nine-tailed fox...or at least she would be if she hadn't lost her tails in a bet with Queen Mago. Now Laon is on a crusade to recover her missing appendages, if other spiritual forces don't find them first! Laon has teamed up with Tae-Ha, a reporter for Rumor and Truth, a monthly gossip rag. Tae-Ha has gone undercover as an exorcist to help out a fellow reporter dig up dirt on a prominent assemblyman. The assemblyman's second wife claims to have seen a dark spirit in the walls, but the family is sceptical until they see the assemblyman's first wife comes out of a painting! She claims that she wants something back from the assemblyman and promises that she will spare everyone if he can correctly guess what she wants. By speaking to the hwan that's controlling the spirit of the assemblyman's wife, Tae-Ha learns that this same hwan may have been involved in the disappearance of his lost love Young-Yoo.
