When I first read about this movie, I didn't quite get how romance, comedy and horror could work together. But if you watch this movie you'll see how it's possible, the genres are mixed really well!

I loved the chemistry between Sohn Ye-jin og Lee min ki, they were so cute! Moreover, the ghost in this movie was a bit scary, but the comedy! Omg!! -the comedy in this movie was good. read more I didn't think I would laugh, but most of time I spent pausing the movie because I was constantly laughing hard. Even in the serious scene there were some comedy and that worked just fine.

You won't waste a second, this movie is awesome!

Chilling is one of those movies that incorporate many genres. It has comedy, drama, horror, and romance. This may seem like a lot. You might, also, think that just because of that (and possibly previous experiences) the movie might be chaotic and just have a bunch of random scenes thrown in together and call it a day, but that is not the case. Everyone who took part in this movie did a read more great job. The scenes do not feel disconnected at all; they flow together and very nicely tell a story.

Story: It's not an original story, even the synopsis tells it so, but it was very enjoyable.

Acting/ Casting: Lee Minki, who I have recently seen in his cameo on the drama "Shut Up: Flower Boy Band", has captured my heart with his acting once again. He is truly a magnificent actor who just gives to his characters a life of their own. I have to mention that both characters he played have a very distinctive feel to them and I just want to see him in more and more things.

I had only seen Son Ye Jin in "Personal Taste", and although I did like the drama, I wasn't that impressed with her in that particular role. But she was just perfect as Yeo Ri. Both of them made the characters likable and believable and that just made me sympathize with them and the things which were happening to, and around, them.

They have really good chemistry together.

I also liked the supporting actors. The movie had a great cast all around.

Music: It felt like it belonged at all times and complemented the scenes nicely.

Rewatch: I will definitely re-watch this movie more than a few times.

Overall: The movie is almost two hours long, but it felt less than that because I was totally immersed in the movie (I did stop it once just to post on the discussion thread. But that had nothing to do with the movie and all with the subs I found). I think this a very well done movie.

    I especially loved the ending. Typical airport scene with a twist. I love all such ghost dramas & movies with romance and comedy in it couldn't find anything after oh my ghostess, master's sun & let's fight ghost. Finally I happened to watch this movie. Definitely recommended.

    I would give it 7.8/10. The movie is nice to watch for whenever someone is bored. It was less frightening than I was anticipating for it to be, but not in a bad way. I don't think I would want to go back and rewatch unless it's for the funny scenes. I liked the blending of comedy and horror, but it still felt lacking. Other than that, fun to watch - at least once. The characters are were entertaining and cute as well.

    Just another romantic comedy but with some jumpscares.

    It was certainly funny, the cast was great and the concept interesting, but when it came to the horror and romance, they were pretty lackluster - a bit too cookie-cutter, in my opinion. It's certainly not a boring film... just doesn't stand out for me.

    I found this movie to be just okay. Not amazing or anything it didn't have a stellar romance and the ending was just lame. It also was funny at times but never hilarious and as far as horror goes it wasn't scary at all. Unless u get scared really really easily then u shouldn't find this scary

    this movie is waaaaaaay too underrated!!! I'm EXTREMELY picky when it comes to watching dramas/movies/tv shows, but I still gave it a 10/10; if you're not sure whether this movie is worth the time or not, watch it and make sure of it yourself XD I didn't even want to watch it at first because of the comedy/horror/romance combination, but after that I only regretted the fact that I barely wanted to give it a try

    I did not like this movie, The reason why the ghost is still stalking her is kinda weak for me.
