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 ;)

      I wouldn't say it's that scary because most of the ghosts were funny (In my opinion) but you should give it try in day light and see whether you find it scary because Idk what your version of what scary is. :) I do really recommend this drama.

      late reply but not really, it's more like jump-scares, nothing really graphic happening. It was weird how I find it exciting seeing ghosts in this drama even though I don't like horror movies XD the guys screaming/running away from the ghosts is too funny!

    Kim So Hyun should do more action scenes :D

    She's in a lot of historical dramas, but also great in modern time dramas.

    WATCH THIS DRAMA BECAUSE YOU WONT FORGET IT. I remember passing by this kdrama when it was still airing because I had no time to watch it with a lot of other dramas up my hands (W and Moonlight Clouds hsjsjksk). I happened to pass by this drama again one day and decided to watch it AND MAN WAS IT GOOD. They don't just rush by the story like a lot of other dramas, and the writers made sure to have a satisfying epilogue at the end which I liked even more. The romance is soooo cute too and the chemistry between the main characters is shown throughout the whole drama.

    Definitely a recommended drama and it will have you laughing, crying, and smiling throughout the way ^-^

    I love this drama :D Cheon Sang/In Rang are hilarious with their bromance and even when they're screaming/running away from ghosts haha I didn't even notice the age gap between the main leads, Taec Yeon looked pretty young in this. Hyun Ji might be annoying at first but I got used to her character, I just didn't like how she kept trying to match Bong Pal up with Seo Yeon in the beginning but then get annoyed later when he does interact/go out with her

    This drama was good--not really scary. I loved the two main leads and the "bad guy" was interesting. There seemed to be a few holes in the story and I really don't like it when they re-run scenes to Fill in the episode timing. Some of the scenes with the monk (I love the actor) were okay and others didn't seem to fit at all. Pretty good overall, but the last episode seemed a little draggy but somewhat okay. It wasn't really a strong ending. I don't know if I would watch this again re-watch this again (except for the main couple) but I'll still give it 8.0 out of 10.

    is it just me....or sometimes, taecyon and so hyun break character for a little while every now and then showing affection to the other??? I don't know how to explain this but for example, in a scene where in taecyon should be annoyed at so hyun for bothering him while he cleans, he should be obviously annoyed at her but there are short times wherein she actually looked at her lovingly or something like that?? so hyun too, when she was supposed to be annoyed that taecyon hit her, there was a millisecond wherein she smiled and it seemed real, she was smiling at taecyon for fake hitting her. there were little moments wherein they were taecyon and sohyun, not bong pal and hyunji.....they mustve liked each other a little.....lol

    this drama was so fun! The romance was cute, the plot was fun, the ghost stories were interesting. It has some Master's Sun vibes, and for me it just made everything better. I'd rewatch at anytime.
