Review

This drama is so refreshing and good! I loved the concept of a ghost and a human working together to exorcise ghosts. Also, the great chemistry between the leads and wonderful acting of the supporting actors made this drama adorable to watch. What I loved the most about this drama is how the ghost (Kim Hyun Ji) was able to bring out the ever reclusive (Park Bong Pal) out of his shell and make him start to enjoy human interactions again after he was scarred by several incidents in his childhood due to his supernatural ability to see ghosts. Despite the climax of the show stretching out to be just one episode too long in my opinion, overall the drama had a great story, strong acting and lovely cinematography. All the supporting actors played their parts really well, including the ghosts. I think this drama is a great watch and might even get you out of your drama slump and reinstate your faith in dramas. Give it a try! I am sure it would like it~
