Join us for another virtual Meetup via Google Meet! The Google Meet info will be posted on this Meetup at about 5:45 p.m. on Friday, 10/16. During this Meetup we will have an informal chat about a book published in 2006 that weaves Korean history and lore into a time-travel fantasy. Sixth-grader Kevin is home alone in NY when an arrow flies through the air, pinning his baseball cap to the wall. Imagine his surprise to find a man claiming to be Koh Chu-mong, the Great Archer from a Korean kingdom in the first century B.C., in his bedroom. The need to get Archer back in time makes Kevin step up to the challenge. Kevin uses all his powers of reasoning and deduction to find the solution to Archer's quest to return home. *Credit to Amazon for this summary.

"Gumiho" is the mythical shape-shifting nine-tailed fox that can transform itself into a human being in its 1000th year if it eats a human being. The Fox family are indeed members of the mythical "gumiho" creatures. The Fox family works in a travelling circus in hopes of capturing human beings. A murder case then occurs and the Fox family find themselves in the middle of it. "The story in "The Fox Family" is about a family of foxes that have taken human form by means of a spell, and they have a once in a lifetime chance to become humans permanently as the moon aligns with the sun at the 1000th year. But in order to attain permanent human shape they have to eat the liver of a human being within the 30 minutes of the eclipse. Having set up a circus act in order to lure in humans, the family have to find 'volunteers' for this ghastly ordeal."(review) "Comedy, music, romance, action, suspense, fiction, Fox family is a movie where you can see from everything. I used to say to my friends that the only thing missing in this movie was a car chase but as I remind myself, there was one! It's not a masterpiece, but it's one of the most entertaining movie I've watched since a while."(review). Stars Joo Hyun, Ha Jung-woo, and Park Si-Yeon. 2006.
