Cha Tae-hyun carries a heavy load in Hello Ghost

Ouuuch. I know there’s movie magic involved and that the three adults clinging to Cha Tae-hyun‘s back are probably aided by an additional tool of some sort, but that can’t be easy. But I suspect that Cha’s character in the upcoming comedy Hello Ghost finds the mental burden a lot heavier than the physical one — he gets stuck with four ghosts and has to find a way to get rid of them.

The premise is this: Cha Tae-hyun has failed to commit suicide several times, and although he is revived from the latest attempt, he dies for a few seconds. He wakes up in the hospital, bummed at his failure, accompanied by a strange man… whom nobody else can see. Somehow he gains three more hangers-on, and he has to deal with their quirky personalities while trying to get rid of them. There’s the pervy grandpa, the weepy woman, the obnoxious meddler, and the kid with an outrageous appetite.

But the kicker? The ghosts can somehow control his body — or maybe it’s the fault of some cosmic connection. But if a ghost smokes, he smokes. The ghost eats, he eats. And so on. Consulting with a shaman leads him to the conclusion that they need him to do something for him, and he is advised to go along with all their whims.

Here’s the preview:

The story’s pretty familiar if you’ve seen the (awesome, hilarious) Robert Downey Jr. movie Heart and Souls, where the spirits of dead people have been tethered to the lead character since he was a baby. However, there are enough differences that I think this movie has the potential for some truly hysterical bits, buoyed, of course, by the comic stylings of Cha, who does the hapless hero better than practically anyone.

The movie opens on December 22.

Can't wait. CTH is peerless when it comes to this kind of quirky humor. So lovable. The rest of the cast looks great, too!

I think there is an extra set of legs in that photo, so probably not even photo shop but someone physically helping carry the load?
excited also for this quirky humor of CTH.!!

Wasn't there a scary movie based on this? Like... a man's been having back pain for so long, and when he looks at the mirror there's a woman's ghost sitting on his shoulders.

and it reminds me of this movie with Ricky Gervais...

Got it! It was Shutter. :P

and the Ricky Gervais film where he dies for a couple of minutes and when they bring him back he can see ghosts is called Ghost Town. :P
