Ok who can't love a movie featuring Lee Min Ki as the leading man?
I found this story to be uniquely original and took a Rom/Com to a whole new place and added in a good dose of humor into the mix as well. Lee Min Ki's performance is excellent as always showcasing both physical humor as well as touching emotional scenes he is the best character actor. I would call this read more a unique romance. I was prepared not to like this and found it a very touching story with both chills and thrills.

This movie was AWESOME.
I loved the funny moments in the movie that makes you laugh out loud. The female main lead was my favourite actress which definetly made me love it more. Music was ok.

The scary scenes in the movie freaked me out but chilling romance had a perfect balance of horror, comedy and romance. The backstory's were really clear aswell which helped me to try to understand and relate read more with the characters

I could watch this a 100 times and still be interested.

To start of with they are both South Korean movies and are movies that are mixed with horror and romance.

Both THE MASTER'S SUN, and SPELLBOUND are cute Romantic Comedies with spooky ghost activity.. Both have a leading lady that sees Dead People and a leading man that helps her to lead a more normal life.

    This movie is frustrating on so many levels. The incorporation between the horror, romance, and comedy made it difficult to establish a coherent effect. It was just all over the place to the point where each incorporated genre became too contrived (even some dialogues that attempted to be meta). Nonetheless, Lee Min Ki's acting is commendable at least as juxtaposed to Son Ye Jin's here.

      Couldn't agree more. Waste of Lee Min Ki's acting and my time.

    Absolutely LOVED this. LMAO! Feeling so happy and light right now after watching this. It was so much fun. Son Ye Jin was gorgeous in this and MIn Ki hot as fire. I like when he does light comedy roles...he reminded me a lot of his character in Dal Ja in this one. His deadpan way of acting suits the dark quiet roles he can be so scary in, but when given well written comedy sarcasm, like this movie, he is quite good. And he OBVIOUSLY LOVES to kiss his leading ladies. Don't stop watching when the credits start rolling. There are a few more absolutely hysterical scenes that will have you on the floor! 9/10 for just making me happy and giving me a great day!

    I'm definitely watching this one again.!

    This movie is so sweet and cheesy! I honestly love it! As an avid kdrama mini horror fan this was actually a bit scary but I just close my eyes for those parts. (It helps lol) I was going to rate it an 8.5 but ending is just so sweet I had to add a whole nother star! I recommend definitely if you are prepared for some pop ups that might be a little spooky!

    9.5/10 stars
