I have to disagree that this was a beautifully constructed and well-executed storyline, because I wouldn't even know where to begin with some of the absurdities, esp in ep15. Hyun-ji slowly makes her way to the car, hoping that Bong-pal will come to see her off. It got everything right and the entire show was so satisfying that it has marched unbelievably! What I really liked was that they made the whole 'seeing ghosts' thing meaningful. And as to why she did not even remember anything from her ghost days with Bong Pal is just a shame, not really like retain them if she ever did remember but maybe just flashes of their great moments would suffice. But here he got to really stretch himself, and something about his angelic face with those dead, menacing eyes just gave me shivers every single time he was onscreen. That would have been an amazing struggle for Bong-pal, and made his final banishment of the demon that much more meaningful. This is the type of oblivious man and go-getter woman story that I can appreciate, and they do look absolutely adorable in the drama's newly released poster,.
I love the characters, so simple, but makes sense. Bong-pal runs into a ghost, but it just hisses at him and leaves, and he keeps following after Hye-sung. They decide instead to go meet the police and lead them here. I wouldn't want to meet him in a dark alley. Hye-sung finds the pouch containing the ritual tools, but Hyun-ji attacks, spraying him in the face and grabbing the bag.
Makes me feel better sometimes to list my grievances though so I understand your post. The professor is so overpowered he could have ended everything in ep1. It was a final fight worthy of a show this good, and the showdown between old enemies had me literally biting my tongue with anxiety that the good guys would fail. If so, then coming way out here to change cars was an attempt to distract them, and make them think he was leaving the city. Why not just kidnap her then since he already has her in his car? Regardless of the fact that it was the evil spirit who killed all those people, Hye-sung is arrested, and he sits in the ambulance looking like a lost, scared little boy. Arguments are welcome, fights are not. He has nothing to say to her, and oof, he just looks so vulnerable and scared.
Sometimes we find side characters under utilised. You know, when the monk was telling Bong Pal that the ghost was doing all this in order to take over his body, my Noble Idiocy alarm went off so fast you have no idea. This last episode was just a sweet wrap-up to everything. In-rang calls Bong-pal, who bolts upright and tells the detectives where they saw Hye-sung and Hyun-ji. To make extra money, he hires himself out as an exorcist who helps people vanquish the ghosts haunting them, with only about a 50-50 success rate. I was kinda expecting that at some point during the fight Hyun Ji would be hurt and then Ghost Hyun Ji would show up and kick the evil spirit's ass.
Chun-sang gets the van running again, and In-rang has a sudden epiphany. It's comfort food for me right now and I was laughing. Hye-sung hovers over her menacingly, and he reaches out to push the hair off her face. He unties her hands and warns her not to do anything stupid, or her mother dies. Boy does she kick butt, or more correctly she kicks Bong Pal's butt.
But--exclusive special for Beanies, you can view it today by clicking on my name! She starts to swan off but trips on a bottle, and Myung-chul gallantly catches her before she falls. Also, people's facial features mature as they age and I'm not too sure from the pictures I've seen that are the plastic surgery kind of changes. Chun-sang is visibly upset when he finds Bong-pal on campus, and he drags Bong-pal back to the Soondae Soup club room. Myung-chul follows her out and asks if he can talk to her for a moment. Hoping there is a season 2 where they try to find out why they can see ghosts. If I don't like a drama that much, these things really bug me, but here, i just brush them off and look forward to more cute.
And that's because, i started to see the depth in the characters. I thought it was a ghost of the week show. Another issue is why does he take Hyun Ji to Bong Pal's father's wake? The monk seems like an interesting fellow and obviously his fall from grace has something to do with Bong Pal. He gazes deeply into her eyes, then says that she has the face of a lucky person. Bring It On, Ghost is undoubtedly one of the big surprises of the year, as it quickly proved that it was more than just the usual frothy summer rom-com.
Hyun-ji leads Hye-sung to the correct lockers, and he throws her to the ground. Bong-pal hugs her back and they both say how happy they are, then he sends her inside. Lollypip - thanks so much for mentioning the detectives!!. I may or may not have gotten a lot of my friends hooked too! I've only seen TaecYeon in Dream High and I thought he was ok there, cute but I wasn't really paying much attention. Well it was useful today but it just seemed like he could have warned people a lot earlier. Maybe scenes were cut to allow for the cameos? I need to just take things for what they.
