After an accident, leaving her in a 6 year long coma, Yang Si On gains the ability to see ghosts. Cha Geon U joins the lost and found department in which Si On works, and helps her to save the spirits trapped in the items within the lost and found department. At the same time, they try to figure out what happened to Si On and her ex Lee Hyeong Jun who still haunts her.
Who are you is a show more for those that like proceduralshows as opposed to the paranormal. Following the outline of a cop show - weekly cases, an overarching case the leads are trying to solve - the ghosts act more as story-progressing elements; they move the plot forward, but aren't overtly important to the show.
Which is great for someone who likes a cop show with a twist, but less for someone who went into it expecting more on the supernatural side.
And while the lead couple have great banter and friendship, they lack the romantic spark. So we get great, meaningful scenes, if it was between friends and we weren't asked to believe they were in love.
That being said, the show isn't terrible. The main case is interesting and heart-wrenching, the episodic ones an entertaining one hour watch. Nothing to write home about, but nothing terrible either.
After a 6 year coma, the police officer Yang Si On wakes up eith many of her memories lost. But she gained the ability to see ghosts. Realizing that she starts to see them when she touches their stuff in the lost and found center - her new work place - she starts to help them. Soon her co-worker Geon U gets interested in her ability to find corpes that where somewhere burried in the woods and stuff, so she keeps her close. Si On helps many ghosts, until she sees the ghost of Hyeong Jun und slowly finds out more about her own story...
Let's see. I'd describe this drama as some kind of romance, detective-action. But both a lacking a lot. For a romance story, it has too little chemistry and romance parts. For action, it is way too slow. You know everything two episodes before the main character discovers the secret. But while you alrady know it, they still try to slowly lead you to the "truth". So for an action drama, it's too slow. But it also isn't a drama or detective story. So clearly, it's just anything.
At first, the horror part was showing. I liked how she saw ghosts and the atmosphere they created. But from episode 5 on, they somehow messed up with the story. I felt a bit bored and even thought it kept me watching, there were so many times where I just thought "Oh. My. God. Why?" My biggest minus point is the way Si On acted at the end. I understand that she was a cutie girl with Hyeong Jun, before she had the accident. But after the accident she was calm and cool and I liked that about her. But during the last episode she goes back to her cutie character. Why? Wouldn't that show even better that she was able to move on and forget the accident and everything that happened? So I was kind of disappointed in the main character. And of course the lack of chemistry. I think I would like the drama more if there was less romance. Since they didn't have the chemistry for it, I felt bad whenever they had to kiss and show their emotions for each other...
So with that, I can only give it 3*. Sometimes it was boring, but it was still a good drama to watch. I enjoyed the episodes each week and liked the characters, even if they didn't go well with each other. If you like ghosts, you'll probably also like this. And even if you don't like horror, let me tell you: It's not that bad. The first ~4 episodes were a bit creepy but it is not so bad that you would get nightmares. The ghosts don't look creepy and it's only the atmosphere that makes it a tiny bit a "horror" drama. I hate horror and didn't think this was scary.
