Not all ghost stories are scary. Some are cute and some are funny. And this drama is nothing short of being cute, funny and scary. Watching with a friend is highly recommended plus a thick blanket to cover up :)

STORY - While this contains the usual Kdrama cliches (don't we love cliches?), the overload of cuteness, funny moments and its consistent lightness separates it from the rest of the dramas under read more the same genre. It has a certain pull to make you smile all through out. Each episode contains a subplot to keep you from getting bored while the main plot was just there, peeking from time to time but not revealing anything. It has some serious moments towards the end but unlike other dramas it didn't feel like a drag. I just love how the main plot was subtly shown in each episode and did not ruin the overall feel of the drama. If you're a scaredy-cat, be sure to watch it with a friend because some ghosts were really scary.

CHARACTERS - This is the first time that I've seen Taecyeon act and boy, isn't he good? Acting as a character that is a lot younger than your real age is quite a challenge but he nailed it! II am now a fan! Kim So Hyun on the other hand did a good job being so adorable. She's so cute I wanted to put her inside my pocket and bring her home :). These 2 actors, regardless of their age gap, created a beautiful romantic spark. From the beginning until the end, they were able to keep that wonderful chemistry that sent butterflies to its viewers.

Also, I have to commend Lee David and Kang Ki Young for bringing so much fun in this drama. They had me rolling on the floor laughing. FOR REAL! :) And let's not forget about Kwon Yool. Who would have thought that a handsome face like that was a villain? I certainly didn't!

MUSIC - This is the only disappointment in this drama. Usually, there's at least one song that sticks in my head but this one doesn't have.

REWATCH VALUE - This drama doesn't contains micro details that deserves a rewatch. However, I would definitely watch it again in times that I'm down and would like to feel good.

OVERALL - This goes on top of my list under RomCom genre for this year. I have a serious withdrawal syndrome that I think would last for weeks. I just feel sad not that it has ended :(

While watching this it always reminded me of "Oh My Ghost" and "The Master's Sun". But don't worry, it's not meant in a bad way. It just has the same vibe. Also, so far tvn's dramas have never disappointed me yet. So, neither has this one.

The story evolves around this guy that can see ghosts and even touch them - therefore also fight them as they continue to bother him through read more his daily life. There then he meets this female student ghost who gets on bad terms with him, but in the end ends up fighting other ghosts together with him.

Most times the story is held lighthearted, although the ghosts appear to be really scary sometimes - remember the movie "The Grudge"? You'll certainly encounter some of those while watching the drama. But in the end every one of their unique stories seem rather pitiable or just sad than frightening and sometimes have a deeper meaning to it.

The acting was solid, convincing and also charming at some points. The fights were really good, enjoyable and even funny. They did a pretty good job on those. Also, CGI effects thumbs up. Quite the sight here. So, when it came to those dramatic scenes, they pulled those off really well.

When it comes to the final, be prepared. Suspense, intensity, thrill... you'll get everything. The whole story isn't stalling one bit but has a smooth flow and the way the mystery surrounding the leads is unraveling only bit by bit, keeps the tension.

So, like I said in the beginning: Recommended if you look for something like "The Master's Sun" or "Oh My Ghost". Have fun watching it if you haven't done it already ;)

Same genre, different stories. While in High School: Love On an angel is living with the male lead, in Let's Fight, Ghost, obvious, there's a ghost living with the male lead. Both male leads are alike in some aspects...
Recommended by Dia
They both include a supernatual being and a human living together while trying to discover the mystery surrounding them.

    It's a big YES for me. I loved to see that it's unique. (i mean the ghost story outline)..... I thought the professor is the rival of Park Bong Pal. And Kim So Hyun is such a cutie. Especially as a ghost and when she wears her uniform. Love this! Recommended K-DRAMA! 10/10 :))

    Surprisingly a perfect drama. Like many others, the age gap bothered me. So Hyun is 17. But she has won me over. I feel she is better than most actresses I have seen. Taec and Kwon Hoon. Actually the entire cast. Great acting. And lots of cute moments.

    I love this drama.
    The chemistry between Sohyun and Taec WAS SO GOOD that I didn't care about the age gap at all. Like it's totes not noticeable when they're bickering together, or acting lovey dovey to one another.
    I love the serious topics that the drama addresses for example (pressure of school, netizens who writes mean comments, abuse etc). Made me cry a few times with the side stories ; ;
    All in all WATCH THIS DRAMA. You won't regret it :)

    Wahh, I really liked this. I wasn't sure about this one cos I didn't like age gap. If everyone was bit older, I woudn't care so much (i.e. 19 and 29), but 17 was a bit much. And he looks much older than her in that poster above. However, these 2 things made it worth watching:

    1. Kim So Hyun: if an actress can make me like a character despite not liking their character type (the kind that uses a lot of aegyo to get their way), then she must be good. Let's just say, if it wasn't Kim So Hyun, I might have dropped it.

    2: the pairing: not only were they super cute (I completely forgot about the age gap once they were on screen together), I felt like they were on equal ground. I really liked how she was just as good as him when it came to fighting the ghosts and figuring stuff out. I dunno, I feel like in most dramas where, once any non-romance plot starts moving, the male lead starts to take over. It irritates me to no end, so the fact that this drama didn't go down that path made it really stand out from the rest for me.

    Go for it, you won't be disapointed.

      That's what I felt too when I finished the drama: that none of them is ahead of each other, no sense of superiority in their differing status. I'm glad it didn't made anyone a savior of sorts.

    A Solid 10 from me for the enjoyment this drama provided. And the cuteness, it's overloaded.

      Yes/No. For me it isn't scary, but I am quite certain that it is for a lot of people. You are fine, if you can handle a bit of dark atmosphere, ghosts with blood on them making some weird noises and movements. But i can hold you in the worst case. ;)

    Just a simple yes/no question: Does this drama have a happy ending? I refuse to watch dramas that have tragic endings, especially after the traumatic Scarlet Heart Ryeo. Please answer WITHOUT spoiling it! Thank you!

    This drama is well-balanced. Although sometimes it's a little bit creepy, there are still a lot of cute and romantic scenes. It's my first time seeing KSH and Taecyeon's acting, and they did a great job. Despite of the huge age gap, their chemistry is undeniable, it's really good. Seems like they're on the same age. lol. All in all, it's worth it. I didn't expected anything when I watched this but it turns out to be a good one.

    Am I the only one who sees Natsume (from Natsume Yuujinchou) in Bong Pal?? I swear to God he's Natsume!! There are many things that reminds me of him every time I see Bong Pal.

    Does this drama mainly focuses on the romance and comedy or the ghost hunting aspect? I've been looking for something to watch and I don't know if this is a good one.

      I would say it's got a good balance between both of those aspects. The latter half may focus a little less on the ghost hunting part (because some things happen) but in general I think it's pretty equal :)
