Twenty years ago, Yoon Hwa Pyung, a young psychic born into a shaman family, learns about the powerful demon called "Son" (Guest). The demon possesses the power to control other demons and allow them to possess weak people. The possessed people then go mad, kill their families, and stab themselves in the eye. Hwa Pyung, Choi Yoon; a young boy born in a religious Catholic family, and Kang Kil Yeong; the daughter of a detective, fatefully meet when their families are killed by a demon.
Twenty years later, the demon killings started again. Hwa Pyung is now a taxi driver who uses his power to seek out possessed people in order to help them, Yoon is a Catholic priest who is talented in exorcism, and Kil Yeong is a detective who doesn't believe in ghosts. The trio meets again and tries to work together to defeat "Son".

The drama features many themes and at first I was curious if they would be able to make me believe this world where ghost exits. I was deeply immersed in the story and the world it built. The drama did a good job at establishing this world and had enough details and information to make the supernatural elements feel real and believable.

The mystery kept me on my edge till the end and the performances of the actors felt fitted to their roles. Kim Dong Wook proved himself as a good actor in other works before and his and the other's acting felt good and compelling. It's not easy to act something that doesn't have a real reference in life.
Those characters were humans with all their flaws and mistake and while one might judge some of their choices, this makes the characters feel more human in the end. The budding friendship and the bond of the three main characters was nice to watch and I'm so glad they drama stayed true to the characters by not forcing a conventional drama love line into it.

One of the reason that made this drama so good is also the music that contributed to the eery atmosphere and also gave a conflicted feeling of desperate and also hope at the same time. The songs were not overused and I never got tired of hearing them.

The drama was great and I would consider rewatching it in the future to let the story unfold in front of my eyes once again.

I'm usually someone who avoids everything tagged 'horror' but somehow I started this drama and I'm so glad I gave it a chance!
It was so hard to wait for new episodes!

The story is so good, it caught me from the very first episode. I really really hate horror stuff but this one just got me waiting for more. The development of the story, the characters, acting and effects were simply amazing. It lets you guess who the "guest" is until the last episode just to realise you got it wrong all the time and things aren't as simple as they seem.

This is now one of my favourite dramas for how unique the plot is, for the amazing acting and for how well it was made overall. Amazing production! 10/10
