Na Bong Seon, who is especially sensitive to spirits and constantly bothered by ghosts, goes through her days exhausted and timid, her apologetic attitude making her unpopular with her coworkers at top chef Gang Seon U's restaurant. Meanwhile, insatiable ghost Sin Sun Ae's antics have gained her an unsavoury reputation in the spirit community. Sun Ae is running out of time to resolve her unfinished business, and ghost beacon Bong Seon appears to be the perfect host to possess to seal the deal -- but the two might have more influence on each other than they expect.
Oh my ghost is a quality dorama about tasty food, love, and Korean shamanism. It even tried to be a detective story with two dead victims and one that managed to survive.
Even though I was hooked on dorama I cannot recommend it to anyone as I doubt its morality and do not support ideas that were delivered by its creators.
Both main characters from the very childhood were not typical children, they suffered from children's cruelty and were misfits. However, one of them coped with it and became a real self-made man.
Gang Seon U owns a well-known restaurant, stars in the TV shows and always checking his rating because reputation is what matters, his success cannot be damaged. But in my view, his life gets drastically changed by two girls. And these changes are not positive.
Na Bong Seon is a quite, depressed and most of the time sleepy introvert working for Gang Seon U and she is often followed by ghosts. One of the ghosts named Sin Sun Ae manages to possess her. After that, these two girls are getting as cruel as one can be trying to seduce our Hero. And this is the reason I gave the dorama only 3/5. I doubt its morality. Firstly, they are offering their virginity too openly and pushy. Secondly, Na Bong Seon's sanity is in doubt - she asks a ghost to help her to seduce Gang Seon U and then to give him to her when Sin Sun Ae accomplishes her goal. As the result, our Hero can't understand who he really loves. What the heck?
In the end (starting from ep. 13) he understands his feelings and realizes who his only true love is. But he does it all too fast. So as characters' development is happening all at once.
The pace of the story is also the problem. At the beginning it is slow paced almost dragging, then it gets funny and lots of actions are going one by one, after that everything is fluffy, cheesy and the same time creepy. It's only 16 episodes but it seems that starting from ep. 15 there are too many of them.
You may like it or not. I did not, but it made me write a review, so maybe it's not so bad. At least acting is very nice, scenes are beautiful. But the ideas are very creepy.
Oh My Ghostess is a refreshing romantic comedy that shows how you can support a romance with a side of intrigue throughout the entire run.
The concept is quirky enough, with a possession story that's never detrimental to the romance. The writing is strong enough to mix it all together well while adding in the mystery of how the ghost died. And it never truly drags. The characters are ever changing and growing, which allows for the story to keep moving at a brisk pace.
And the acting is top notch. Jo Jeong Seok nails the tough but goofy boss whose both smooth and awkward at love (it's frankly adorable). Park Bo Yeong plays both personalities amazingly well, nailing all the quirks of Sin Sun Ae so that you know exactly whose in control of the body when. And Kim Seul Gi is as winning as ever.
A definite recommend for any romantic comedy fan or any drama fan in general.
Though they are very different in every aspect, both main girls fall in love with a chef. Therefore, the romance itself is sweet and innocent in both. Also recommended for people who like dramas with loads of cooking and food.
