Review I actually watched this last year (i know still delayed since this came out in 2013) back when I was marathon watching So  Ji Sub dramas (i watched Oh My Venus right after this). First off, i want to talk about the characters. Joo Joong Won actually reminded me a little bit of Cha Seung Won’s character in The Greatest Love, mostly because both of them seem to be mature but not very experienced in love. Second, they are both crazy (though Dokgo Jin is crazier!) I love SJS’s famous line and his look on his face everytime he says it. I love his suits too!! i dont think any normal guy would wear these too fashionable suits but on him it looks so good and fits his character’s personality. As for TaeYang, at first I thought she was really weird because she always looks so unkempt beside the pristine JoongWon; and she was half clingy half annoying whenever she tries to hold on to JoongWon coz she’s afraid of ghosts. But then when we find out what happened to her, i felt bad for her because she couldn’t find a stable job, she was scared to death of sleeping coz she knows she will see ghosts (and drama did show a lot of creepy spirits!). I love the premise that staying close will rid Taeyang of ghosts, and that’s how the love story started. I dont think they have a lot in common, but maybe it’s because they understood and rely on each other that brought them closer. JoongWon looks so cold but he was the one who helped Taeyang when she got too scared, got her a job, helped her talk to the spirits. I seriously cried as hard as TaeYang when I thought JoongWon died (of course he wont!). I love the cases they “solve” every episode, except for that time when the scary looking ajumma was on ( i think she was the same scary ajumma in that Lee Joongki drama previously).

here’s the kiss scene from episode 9 where TaeYang was possessed (credits to the uploader)

For the secondary characters, I like Seo In Guk’s character, though he looks too young beside GHJ and SJS. It is funny how he is super scared of ghosts (big contrast to JoongWon) yet was willing to overcome it because he likes Taeyang a lot. Yi Ryung is so pretty but very mean to Taeyang, the only time I could tolerate her was when she tries to vie for Seo In Guk’s affections who doesn’t even care if she’s a popular celebrity. lol. i still think that the pairing was forced, because she was basically pushing him to like her and he just found her annoying for most of the series.

Overall, this drama was a mix of comedy, drama, mystery, horror and romance that is sure to tickle every kdrama fan’s fantasies.

someone made a mix of the best scenes – and the music playing is from one of the ost songs by Yoon Mirae called “Touch Love (really nice love song!) (credits to the uploader)

here’s another song from the soundtrack, this time from Hyorin called Driving me crazy (credits to the uploader)

will try to take screencaps of SJS’s suits when I have the time next week.
