Wei Song Yan comes back from the United States to open up a psychology clinic in Taiwan called Green Door. His meticulous ways and principles get in the way of the success of Green Door despite his girlfriend, Hong Yu Mei, referring clients in his direction. The first clients he gets without the help of Yu Mei, however, turn out to be ghosts: the spirit of a young girl from the future that only appears in mirrors, the spirit of a gangster who is currently trapped in the body of Yu Xiu Qi , and a ghost who is can't move on from her memory of the past. Wei Song Yan attempts to help the ghosts of the past, present, and future; all while being haunted by the guilt and grief of his own life. Adapted from a novel by Joseph Chen.

Based on the summary and cover art, I was super excited going into this drama. Unfortunately, it fell a bit flat for me. Although I liked the subdued, almost lazy tone of this series, the plot itself was too slow-paced for my liking and didn't do the "big reveal" justice. I feel like the plot twist, which is revealed in the final episode, is really the crux of this story, and all of the events leading up to it don't have much meaningful significance until the twist is revealed. As a result, it kind of feels like we're meandering along without a clear end-sight in mind. The final episode, to me, was the most interesting and, after I finished it, I was left wishing that the same energy and dynamic there had been applied to episodes 1 through 5 as well. Moreover, the story line I was most interested in (Ma Ri's) got the least amount of time devoted to it, and I couldn't really get into the other ones. All in all it was a dull lead up to a great climax that left me wishing the set up and execution had been sharper (though I know it's based on a book so I guess there's only so much the screenwriters could do with the story line).

As for the characters and acting, I thought all of the actors did well in their roles. I do, however, agree with someone's comment below that the two romantic interests had no chemistry whatsoever, so I found it a little hard to believe. While it kind of makes sense once the reason for the strain is revealed, I do wish that the actors had been able to portray a little more interest or *something* to make the relationship feel less sterile.

Overall I wouldn't say this is a bad drama, but I guess I went in with too high of expectations and came out feeling let down. Having only 6 episodes at about an hour each, it's not a huge investment of your time, but it wouldn't be the first drama I'd recommend.

And for anyone curious/hesitant about the horror tag: Aside from one or two quick jump scares, I didn't find it scary at all. It kind of gives me a Ghost Whisperer vibe, so I think it'll be okay for those who are interested but not into the scary stuff (which I'm not really into either).
