Trailer: Great Real Estate

Genre: Comedy, Fantasy, Horror, Supernatural
Episodes: 16
Stars: Jang Na Ra as Hong Ji Ah
Jung Yong Hwa as Oh In Bum



Likes: A ghost drama with Jang Na Ra was something new! She’s one of my favourite kdrama actresses and I love seeing her explore different roles. She was fantastic in VIP last year and this year, she’s just super cool, fighting and exorcising all those ghosts! Love her looks! Very different, so emo. Those smokey eye shadows surely made her look fierce. She’d completely left her cute image! Such a versatile actress!

Intriguing storyline base, with the mysterious death of the mum and her unrested spirit clinging onto our main girl, Hong Ji Ah. At first, it was kind of scary every time the mum appears but realized how pitiful she actually was, being stuck in the realm of the living, something that Hong Ji Ah has yet to solve.

I’m a big fan of Jung Yong Hwa, so it was such a treat to see him again in a drama. It’s been a long while since The Three Musketeers! Taking the role of a powerful psychic, who became the vessel of the spirits before getting exorcised and absorbing their memories for a short period, looked interesting, funny and scary at the same time. Jung Yong Hwa’s character Oh In Bum definitely got some of his acting skills out. He was always a flower boy to me but I would consider this, his road to more serious roles.



I love watching all those different ghosts and their stories. Death leaves people sad, but it’s more heartbreaking to be able to visualize spirits with unfinished business in this world who just couldn’t leave peacefully because of reasons like resentment and anger. True or not, we all should learn how to live our lives without resenting anything or anyone.

A big lesson and an eye-opener to me is the main moral story of the drama, that when someone dies, it’s not your fault, so don’t blame yourself about it! This is one thing a lot of us are struggling, we appease ourselves from guilt and pain of loss by putting all the blame on us. However, by doing that, we’re not giving our departed the peace that they needed, so we should let go! Just let go!

This reminds me a lot of GhostBusters, the movie. Like the similarity of those necessary tools they need to get rid of ghosts and how they would always prepare for a mission, just like soldiers preparing to go to war. But I think I could relate more to this drama than the Hollywood movie. I just like imagining ghosts as lost spirits and not monsters.



Love this super upbeat OST by Jung Yong Hwa himself… I Got Ya, Great Real Estate OST! Lights up the whole ghostly mood!

I like how it ended. They’ve finally solved the greatest mystery of them all. We all could expect a peaceful departure of those who are bound to depart, and our pair lady exorcist and her handsome psychic are carrying on with what they do best.

Dislikes: No romance, sorry.

What was that snack they were trying to obviously promote in the middle of the show? Forgot 🤔! Sore in the eyes, anyway.

Zombie Detective

zombie detective kdramaSummary: Kim Moo Young had been living in a village as a zombie for the past two years and learned how to move and act like a real live person. He moves to the city and takes over the identity of a dead detective. While starting his detective work, he meets Gong Sun Ji, who takes an interest working as a detective assistant.

Trailer: Zombie Detective

Genre: Mystery, Horror, Comedy, Detective, Supernatural, Boss Romance
Episodes: 24
Stars: Choi Jin Hyuk as Kim Moo Young
Park Joo Hyun as Gong Sun Ji
Kwon Hwa Woon as Cha Do Hyun




Likes: Short but downright hilarious and entertaining. Story was very compact, no dilly dally, just straight to the point.

I love the zombie intro! That realization when Kim Moo Young became a zombie and how ridiculously slow he was. And on top of that, he couldn’t even speak! What a frustrating situation interpreted in a funny way. Of course love the determination that came with it. It was like Rocky training to be a boxing champion or  Kung Fu Panda training to be the dragon warrior! A slow zombie training to move like a real and quick human by running on a treadmill and learning how to speak before finally moving to the city.

The two mysteries that gave answers as to why our zombie existed. The first part gave clarity as to why Kim Moo Young died. He had been curious about his past life and how he ended up dead. The second part was focused on how he became undead. Who was responsible for it, that Kim Moo Young himself  wanted to know badly. Therefore, becoming a zombie detective was the best way to solve the mysteries.

The ending with an epilogue. One year later what happened to the story. I love the hint of Kim Moo Young going back to detective work, the hopeful news that there might be a way to zombies becoming human again and of course, a possible romance between our zombie lead and his former assistant. Love the Halloween Party dress up at the end. Thought Choi Jin Hyuk looked really hot in his costume!

I always dislike ad placement but the BB Cream well placed ad was something I could live with.

Good job for putting such effort coming up with creative titles for every episode.

LOL for these funny scenes…

  • That part when they were making a parody of Boys Over Flowers and that famous “Almost Paradise” OST played in the background!
  • When our zombie was trying to learn the ways of the living by watching kdramas!
  • The fight between our zombie and the wild boar!
  • Joseon Zombie vs Chinese Zombie!
  • Non-stop funny moments from the rival neighboring detectives, Lee Sung Rok and Wang Wei!
  • The blossoming love between Wang Wei and the tripe lady!

Our main leads…

Choi Jin Hyuk as Kim Moo Young – this role suits Choi Jin Hyuk much better. Love seeing him in a light, funny character. Being a zombie, he actually looked convincing. And everytime he put on his BB cream, he turned into this very handsome detective!



Park Joo Hyun as Gong Sun Ji – it took a while to warm up to her but eventually when her character was less annoying and frantic, she turned out to be so much likeable. Love her bridal costume at the Halloween Party.

Dislikes: Was enjoying it too much, I don’t remember anything to dislike about it.

A Korean Odyssey

a-korean-odyssey kdramaSummary: Son Oh Gong, the monkey king is bound to protect Jin Seon Mi through a powerful bracelet called Geumganggo. The geumganggo has the power to enslave him by making him fall in love with the person who let him wear the bracelet and protect that person wholeheartedly. So Son Oh Gong has been following Jin Seon Mi around and protecting her from all evil spirits which are bothering her.

Trailer: A Korean Odyssey

Genre: Fantasy, Romance, Comedy, Horror, Supernatural
Episodes: 20
Stars: Lee Seung Ki as Son Oh Gong
Cha Seung Won as King Wooma
Oh Yeon Seo as Jin Sun Mi
Lee Hong Ki as P.K
Jang Kwang as Yoon Dae Sik
Lee El as Ma Ji Young



Likes: The Story – at first it was confusing and the storyline was somewhat chaotic. I didn’t have a background of the original so I was quite lost. The beginning was like Alice in Wonderland with ghosts, evil spirits, demons, then even came a zombie. It was like a fantasy-horror roller-coaster! Lost but quite enjoying the adventure. Later on, our leading man was clear – handsome, mischievous, powerful – well, basically a god. Our leading lady, the girl in distress  didn’t and leave our handsome god a choice but to protect and love her. With that, I was happy, we’re back in a kdrama world, lol!

The Characters and the Cast – It took me a while to get used to the characters and understand how important and powerful each one of them as most of them were immortals but as soon as I got the hang of it, everything made more sense.

  • Lee Seung Ki as Son Oh Gong –  he is definitely most handsome in this role! I think he did so well as the rude monkey always teasing his girl but then always giving in to her. Among LSK’s kdrama, this is the first one he really connected and had an awesome chemistry with his leading lady which made him more handsome. I love how arrogant, angry, rude and hot-tempered Son Oh Gong was! A change to our normal sweet and polite kdrama leading man.
  • Oh Yeon Seo as Jin Sun Mi – She’s always pretty but she never really had a proper chemistry with his leading men in the past, maybe because of those strong and brave roles she was in. However, as Jin Seon Mi, Oh Yeon So became like a little girl who was a having a crush on someone older. She was more vulnerable which suits nicely with Son Oh Gong’s rough character. Her moments with Son Oh Gong were always something to watch for.
  • Cha Seung Won as Ma Wang – this guy is not just tall and handsome but a good actor as well. Cha Seung Won didn’t disappoint me as the vain, powerful, funny but carries sadness in his heart – Ma Wang, the bull King. Cha Seung Won’s acting was commendable, he would go from funny, quirky to sad. All with impressive facial expressions!
  • Lee Hong Ki as P.K – the naughty and mischievous Dwaeji! Suits Lee Hong Ki so well!
  • Lee El as Ma Ji Young – I love her, she’s gorgeous and she can act too!

The Kissing Scenes – Is it me or they’re very generous with kissing scenes these days. After I’m Not a Robot, this drama comes next to having an elaborate kissing scene this year. Not that I’m complaining, I LOVE IT! Bring in some more of these scenes! Our 2 top leads did a great job! They looked good and in love when they kissed, very convincing ;). I specially like the kiss at the bookshop. It was the famous reactivation kiss!

Bromance – my favourite is the bromance between Son Oh Gong and Ma Wang. It’s like they don’t like each but they like each other. They were so cute to watch especially when it comes to Son Oh Gong’s coat which he always hung on Ma Wang’s bull statue. The latter would get annoyed but then later missed him when there was no one anymore doing that.

The OST – I so love the song When I Saw You! Check out the rest of the OST as well.



Bizarre Stuff – The Winter General and the Summer Fairy were one person! It was more bizarre than the black dragon! Honestly, it took me a while to realize that haha. Also, the rotting smell of Bu Ja was successfully conveyed (at least to me) by how rotting she looked. Great acting and great job makeup artists!

The Outfits – This has a high probability in bagging the best in outfits/costume award which I’ll give later this year. Everyone looked good in their well-fitted outfits! I can imagine a lot of money went to this one.

The Ending – since the start of the show, the ending was always pointing to a sad one. However, I like  how I got my consolations. I can deal with that ending! It’s all good then :).

Dislike – the only complain I have here is how Son Oh Gong was pushed into that super “rich” character. It was unnecessary. I found it trying hard somehow.

My Rating: 8.5 stars! (10 as highest)

Likes: My first horror-comedy kdrama and I love it! It was scary at first – it just shows how good the makeup was – but it was enjoyable to watch every episode ending with a solution to every ghost problem :)!

I love every ghost story! It begins with a freaky intro and ends up very funny!

I love Gong Hyo Gin! She always pick a good drama. I hope to see more from her!

Lots of pretty faces! Special mention to So Ji Sub and Kim Yoo Ri – she’s a doll!

I love the leads! It reminds me a lot of The Greatest Love!

Dislikes: As I’ve mentioned above, this drama reminds me of The Greatest Love because of the leads but So Ji Sub, as handsome as he is, didn’t get close to the charisma and sexiness of Cha Seung Won! Anyway…

Due to popularity, they made it 17 episodes. Really, there was no need! It just made episodes 15 and 16 redundant!
