i went to KL for a few weeks in October and November and couldn’t watch any new kdramas so i ended up watching this show in Netflix.

Na Bong-Sun (Park Bo-Young) works as an assistant chef. Because of her timid personality and low self-esteem, she doesn’t have any friends. Since she was a child, she has been able to ghosts because of her shaman grandmother. One day, she becomes possessed by seductress ghost Shin Soon-Ae.

Kang Sun-Woo (Cho Jung-Seok) is a star chef. Na Bong-Sun has a secret crush on him. He is good looking and confident as a chef. Even though he is popular with women, he has yet to get over his ex-girlfriend. He begins to notice Na Bong-Sun after her sudden change.

Halftime review:

I heard lots of good things about this show so i finally took the chance to watch a few episodes. I admit i’m not that invested, and it’s mostly because i dont feel the chemistry between Bongsun and Sunwoo. One, Bongsun seems too young and inexperienced for the celebrity chef. Two, the only reason Sun Woo started to notice her was when the ghost possessed Bong sun, so technically, i dont believe that Sun woo is in love with Bongsun, but rather he’s in love with Soon-ae as Bong sun. I dont like Bong sun, i always keep wishing Soon ae possesses her again so Bong sun will be livelier and more charming. I also dont believe that a celebrity chef will like an anonymous blogger’s simple dishes – i think it’s just a way to show that Sun woo really is in love with Bong sun even before the possessed Bong sun.

I am continuing to watch the show because of Soon ae, i want to find out how she died and how she can move on to heaven. i know the creepy brother in law is responsible for her death, i just dont know how. Is he also possessed – is he aware he is possessed by an evil spirit or is he one and the same? Kim Seul gi is also a refreshing actress to watch. She is so hilarious and at the same time can move you to tears.

It’s my first time to watch Jo Jung suk and i would say it wont be the last time. he’s actually cute and pretty good actor, though sometimes he has an expression on his face which i dont know if he’s acting or he’s laughing.

Ugh, the sous chef was annoying in Bring it on ghost and he’s also annoying in this show. he is so arrogant but trying to be cute. I wish Cordon will have a bigger role – i’m not sure if he’s supposed to be the second lead and if he has a one sided crush on Bongsun – but i think his simple and quiet personality matches that of Bongsun, more than Sunwoo. Now if only we can bring Soon ae back from the dead, then i am all for Sun woo and Soon ae pairing!

I’m not sure if i still want to finish the show, or if i will be fastforwarding the scenes just to see how it all ends.

Oh, funny how Park Bo Young ended up portraying 2 characters called Bong sun.
