For the last couple of days, i watched a korean drama (kdrama) entitled Oh My Ghost. Overall rating for this drama i gave 8.7/10 because of several factor. The main factor is the cast starring in this drama, Park Bo Young which is one of the actress that i have been a fan of. So in this post, i will make a quick review of this drama according to my perspective.
This drama start its pilot episode on 3rd July 2015 and airing its last episode (episode 16) on 22 August 2015 on TvN channel. My habit is to dramathon (a term for watching a drama after airing its last episode/complete in a row) because i don’t like to waiting for next episode.
Na Bong-sun has an extremely timid personality and low self-esteem, doesn’t have any close friends, and is constantly getting reprimanded at her job as an assistant chef at Sun Restaurant. She also occasionally sees ghosts, thanks to a shaman grandmother. One day, Bong-sun gets possessed by a lustful virgin ghost named Shin Soon-ae. To make up for the lack of romance in her short life and believing that only by losing her virginity will she be able to “resolve her grudge” and move on to the afterlife, Soon-ae is determined to seduce as many men as she can by possessing various women, and she finds the perfect vessel in Bong-sun.Bong-sun’s boss is arrogant star chef Kang Sun-woo, whom she secretly has a crush on. Sun-woo hasn’t dated anyone since getting his heart broken by his college friend Lee So-hyung, who’s now a TV producer. But when Bong-sun seemingly gets rid of her shyness and suddenly changes into a confident, dynamic woman, she finally catches his eye. Meanwhile, the mystery surrounding Soon-ae’s death involves Sun-woo’s brother-in-law, kindly police officer Choi Sung-jae who may not be what he seems.
Even this drama based on ghost, but there only a few of scene that show the ghost with ugly face, mostly the other ghost in human form. This is suitable to watch if the person/audience prefer no ugly-face ghost. I like the character Na Bong Sun play by Park Bo Young which is the person with an introvert personality and when the ghost posses her body, the personality turns 180 degree and give shock to other person in the restaurant. There also quite a few of romance scene, which is basically kissing and hugging, the amount of that scene is acceptable, barely enough to show the relationship between Bong Sun and the chef.
- Jo Jung-suk as Kang Sun-woo
- Park Bo-young as Na Bong-sun
- Kim Seul-gie as Shin Soon-ae
- Lim Ju-hwan as Choi Sung-jae
- Park Jung-ah as Lee So-hyung
Last word from me, if you want to watch a relax drama, i suggest this drama as there are only a few intense scene and enjoyable, go and watch at Viki and i think iflix also have full episode including several subtitles in different language.
