The story may not be something 100% new but it involves you in such a way that you fall in love with the characters riht away.
It really is both romance and horror! I got chills down my spine with the ghost scenes and your are drawn to feel the pain and loneliness of the female main character.
The comic scenes are... how can i say this... the chery on top of read more the cake! It's brilliante, hilarius, sweet, spooky, dramatic and at the same time... addictive.
Great soundtrack, great choice of actors, outstanding preformances, the supporting cast is amazing... TOTALLY want to watch it again (with proper subs, when i find them! XD)

This film was great but I have to warn you: It won't suit everyone's taste since there are many people who get scared by their own shadows I wouldn't recommend this to them because it contains horror scenes as some of my friends said : It gave them "nightmares, affected their sleeping's habit and had a horrible imagination because of it" as for me I see that as an exageration; it wasn't read more that scary. However, you've got to know that I love horror films.
Anyway, I was attracted to this film due to its storyline and the great actors who knew how to deliver emotions.
The story have more romance than horror that's for sure; it was kind of unique so I had so much fun watching it and going through its details as the film went by.
If you don't get scared that easy and love the sweet type of romance then you definitely should check this out.
If you're a person that get frightened quickly and hate horror films then you may have to Keep Out!

Both 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.
Recommended by kdramasinpajamas
Both combine comedy with ghosts etc. Chilling Romance focuses on romance (it's all in the title) and Fortune Tellers has family, romance and various elements. Both give off the same vibes and similar comedy

    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.
