OCN’s ghost-seeing detective gears up for February broadcast

After a broadcasting delay that pushed its premiere into the new year, cable network OCN’s next crime procedural Ghost-Seeing Detective Cheo-yong is back on track to be on the air in early February. The new thriller stars Oh Ji-ho (God of the Workplace) as Cheo-yong, a man born with the ability to see ghosts, who uses the skill (er, curse) to solve crimes. We saw a lot of ghost-seers in 2013, so it’ll take some doing for this show to stand out, but at least it’s going for a much creepier horror-thriller vibe.

The 10-episode drama will air on Sunday nights, and comes from the PD of Arrest King and one of the writers of Joseon X-Files. Oh Ji-ho plays a man who was once the ace detective in the violent crimes unit, but lost his partner and family in a tragic accident. He shuts himself off from the world and scrapes by as a district cop. He’s spent his whole life trying his hardest to ignore the ghosts he can see, but one day he starts talking back to the ghost of a schoolgirl who keeps following him around (Jeon Hyo-sung), and he starts engaging with the other side.

Meanwhile he solves crimes with his new partner Oh Ji-eun (King of Dramas), a dogged detective in the regional investigation unit. Her specialty is crime scene reconstruction, and she has a particular eye for detail. With the help of Cheo-yong’s “dead signs” from the ghosts haunting the crime scenes, he’s able to solve their cases. At least the motivation is clear. Die a violent death; haunt till you get justice. Poor guy who gets to be everyone’s favorite hauntee.

Cheo-yong premieres February 9 on OCN.

Oh, yay! I was so looking forward to this drama last year.

But at least now it'll be the first ghost-themed kdrama to air in 2014... unless another pips it to the post. (Hey, it could happen. See: Who Are You vs The Master's Sun.)

His smile is infectious!

Also liked Oh Ji-eun in KoD, I thought she was cute. Glad to see she's Oh Ji-ho's costar here.

Too many ghost-seeing related kdramas happening now...
Oh well, I'll still end up watching this if it is good.

Last year Who Are You didn't manage to keep me hooked as much as Master's Sun did, I gave up on WAY by the 5th episode.

I hope this one will be good.

What an odd casting choice. I'm not a fan of girl groups, but one thing I do like about Secret is that they aren't 'girly.' They've got womenly bodies and shake it like Beyonce. So here their lead singer gets a part in a drama, and she's going to spend the entire series in a high school uniform?

First off, Oh Ji Ho is so fine. I'm surprised that I haven't seen him act yet. I'm so late!

I don't know if it's just me, but I think OCN & tVn makes some of the best dramas! I am really looking forward to seeing this.

I also need to watch TEN S1&2 and VP S2. It's only January and I'm already so behind on dramas! -____-

Both seasons of Ten very good, love the cast. I haven't finished season 2 of Vampire Prosecutor, but what I've seen so far has been really good.

I am so looking forward to this! OCN knows how to do crime dramas and I am a big fan. Their TEN and TEN2 were really really good and that team knows what they were doing. And Oh ji-ho is delicious and we do need a real hot man on our screen now!

So it's "Arang & the Magistrate" meets "Who Are You?" meets "Spellbound" (the movie) meets "Sixth Sense" (the movie) meets "Master's Sun", right?

Two things make this compelling for me: Oh Ji Hot, er, I mean Oh Ji Ho, and the writer from "Joseon X-Files."

What sort of cranes or scaffolding do they use for these awesome flying and sitting in the sky shots in Kdramas? That young woman looks to be twenty feet up, and she's being held there by wires that are at least twenty feet higher.

I miss Oh Ji Ho. So, am definitely gonna watch this, though why does it have to be another ghost-seeing thing?

Looks interesting. I like ghost-seeing stories, and I especially like that he'll use his power to solve crime. Totally badass.

Wouldn't it be EPIC if Vampire Prosecutor characters cameo-ed in one episode? I would love that! I hope VP comes back with a third season this year.

Oh Ji Ho - best smile, ever!!

I've loved him since the Hong Sister's ripoff of 'Overboard' - was it Odd Couple? Can't remember the proper name. Also liked him in that rom/com he did where he was a golf pro coming back to revenge himself on the woman who spurned him cause he was fat... this cop-seeing-ghosties drama looks interesting.
As a side note, he just announced he's getting married after dating for 2 years.

Last year's marathon of ghost dramas left much to be desired. I don't even know if I want to check this out if it goes anything like last year. Looks good though, and it's short.

The lady looks so much like Jo An from the TEN series, the haircut and the clothes.
Looking forward to this, I like OCN dramas and their cinematography is the best.

Oh Ji-ho and Oh Ji-eun - such sibling-y names LOL.

My main problem with Oh Ji-ho is that while he has that killer smile, and does comedy quite well, I don't know if he can pull off this dark, gritty role. His eyes look kinda buggy in the promo, which doesn't exactly inspire confidence...

Looking forward to this, what Who Are You should have been...it helps I like both leads (didn't care for either in WAY) and coming from OCN (loved Vampire Prosecutor and Ten!), I'm optimistic.
