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.

The story’s quite fresh. And I was really stunned at how this movie managed to incorporate various genres I never imagined would work out harmoniously. It’s surprisingly scarier than I thought it would be. Nonetheless one could still sleep peacefully despite the creepiness.

The romance was cute. And the chemistry was to die for. I really love how Son Ye Jin’s able to match up with her co-stars who are younger than read more her that I barely notice the age differences.

With a crazy set-up accompanied by compelling and quirky leads, this movie was able to tug my heart with just enough dosage of sweetness and pure wackiness at its best.

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.

    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

    This film was...okay. To be honest, it was underwhelming for me. Just average. Maybe because I was expecting something more, like regarding the truth about Yoo Ri's bestfriend for example. Some parts of the story weren't clarified. There were some funny moments though, like when she ripped his shirt when she got drunk and the end scene between the old guy friend of Jo Gu (sorry, don't know what his role was) and the ghost best friend. The "horror" is a lot like in Master's Sun i.e. not seriously scary. Overall, I'd give it a 5.5-6/10.

    I happened to find this movie right before going to bed so I decided to watch the first 10 minutes just to see if it was something worth going back to and I ended up staying up and watching the whole thing because it is that good! So funn but scary and cute at the same time
