Oh Snap! Ghost Story of a Girl
by | May 13, 2014 | 59 Comments

Ack, horror movie posters! Once you see ’em, you can’t get them out of your head. Here are the posters (and a couple of stills) from Ghost Story of a Girl, which once was titled Girl’s Grave and stars Kim So-eun as a ghost girl who’s lost her memory and Kang Haneul as the teenage outcast who can see her. They form a friendship as a series of disappearances at the high school unfolds, which are somehow connected to a secret regarding the ghost girl.

I know what you’re thinking: That poster’s not so bad. Neither are those stills. Scroll. Scroll. Scr— ACKKKKKKK!

Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

    Oh this looks interesting =) And so right up my alley^^

    Haven’t seen Kim So Eun in anything other than Horse Doctor which I am currently watching and she’s really endearing there and I like her.

    Kang Ha Neul… YES PLEASE =) The more of him in lead roles (movie or drama) the better!

      It sounds alot like the anime Tasogare Otome x Amnesia that i really enjoyed. Looking forward to it.

  2. ck1Oz

    Why did I do that?

    Ack. Too obedient to the command.

  3. domo

    This sounds interesting! And I like the two of them well enough that I think I would enjoy it.

    I went straight down here after seeing the warning… I’m too scared to look! Can someone just tell me whether it’s something that jumps at you or not? 😛 Or is it just a scary picture?

    • 3.1 Mawiie

      Just a pair of eyes staring into your soul behind a surgical mask 😛

      • 3.1.1 domo

        Thanks 😛

        Reading these comments gave me the courage to look and it wasn’t so bad haha

  4. Niki

    EEEKKKKKK!! Gawd! I felt my heart stopped for awhile even though i was scrolling really…REAALLLY slow….not scrolling back up. *shudder*

    Are we all looking at the same photo? I look like that during flu season. Mask on, red eyes, looking a little crazy….

    • 5.1 kungfupigeon

      I know what you mean. I look like that when I wake up after too little sleep

      Hair in my eyes, bedding over my face and looking like I want to hurt someone

    • 5.2 Dila

      I’m sorry but your comment made me laugh.

  6. Jody

    Maybe it was just the angle, but the scariest sight to me was what appeared to be Kim So-eun’s granny-looking boobs in the first picture

    • 6.1 theflibbet

      body-shaming is just adorable. keep it up.

      • 6.1.1 Jody

        You do realize that my comment was in jest. Clearly, no one would believe that this girl has granny boobs. There are however, some photos that do us less justice than others. If I offended you personally, my apologies.

        • theflibbet

          the fact that you think joking about a woman’s breasts is harmless is the problem here.

      • 6.1.2 june_rain

        I think Jody was just harmlessly pointing out an amusing illusion in the first picture that makes it appear like she has granny boobs. You may have misunderstood her intentions. Anyway, this looks interesting. I wonder if this is truly horror or just a movie with supernatural elements.

        • Jody

          Thank you June.

    • 6.2 pogo

      I’ve always believed that judging people’s skills is fair game here, but comments like these are not classy.

    • 6.3 chesquared

      I feel bad for saying this every time. But the first thing I notice with Kim So Eun is her nose. I just can’t focus. T___T why did such a pretty girl have to do this to herself? Why D=?!

    • 6.4 kanz

      Yeah, the scariest pic for me is the first. Don’t know why anyone would think the last pic scary. But I never like horror movie, not even Kang Haneul will tempt me to watch.

    • 6.5 bd2


      Just saw those as weird folds on her blouse/sweater- thing; which actually makes her look flat-chested.

    • 6.6 Wag_a_Muffin

      There are no bras in the after life.

    “I know what you’re thinking: That poster’s not so bad. Neither are those stills. Scroll. Scroll. Scr— ACKKKKKKK!”

    I didn’t read this before scrolling down. No prizes for guessing what my reaction was.

  8. madame kim

    Gdi, I’m so shipping these guys. They’ re too cute together.

    • 8.1 madame kim

      Also, how can someone with a face like Kang Haneul be the outcast? Does. Not. Compute.

  9. pogo

    I like Kim So-eun’s acting, she has a very natural charm about her and made a fan of me ever since Boys Over Flowers. Her character in that was a clingy stalker in every other version of that story including the original manga, but she did a great job of portraying that character as having an actual spine and some connection to Kim Bum.

    (also, yessss, she and Kang Haneul are finally proper first leads in something! High time that happened)

    P.S. Thanks for the warning, JB! That is indeed not a still you want to see right before going to sleep.

    • 9.1 Dila

      Aw, Kim So Eun and Kim Bum were perfect together. I was a shipper, back in the days. Lmao.

    • 9.2 VanillaSalt

      Omg that’s her?? is it just me or does she look really different?

      • 9.2.1 pogo

        It’s not just you, I think she had something done (highly unnecessary too – girl was a natural cutie), but she looks largely the same in the third still with KHN.

    • 9.3 bd2

      Couldn’t figure out what the brou-haha was over KSE when she blew up during BOF (didn’t watch it), but after I saw her in “The Man Who Can’t Get Married” (highly recommended) – totally got it since not only can she act, she has this certain charm and charisma about here and when she smiles (esp. looking upwards), her eyes really shine.

      KSE was also the best thing in “Empress Cheonchu” (pretty much stopped watching once her character moved into her adult years).

      • 9.3.1 pogo

        I’ve seen that drama! It’s not one of my favourites, but it is an excellent drama and it made me an even bigger fan of hers since she basically made a stock ‘young girl in the big city’ character into something charming and relatable – and she was only 19 at the time, too.

        • bd2

          From everything I heard, “excellent” is not the term that comes to mind w/ regard to BOF – maybe “fluff”?

          • pogo

            I was talking about The Man Who Can’t Marry, no one except the delusional would call BOF ‘excellent’ lol.

    That poster wasn’t so bad in light of the fact that now whenever you tell me to scroll down to see something scary, I am bracing myself to have something jump out at me like the Gap Dong web comic.

    As long as it doesn’t move, it’s fine.

  11. 11 coby

    waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa! huhuhu.. its still on my mind! why did I scroll all the way down?

  12. 12 hanny

    Sound like arang and the magistrate storyline.. But Yeay! Its Kang Haneul.. Have to watch this.. Thanks

  13. 13 chaerinnie

    The poster really looks good! I never know the poster of horror movie will be this cool haha

  14. 14 Noelle

    I love him!!! I like the sound of it. Will watch.

  15. 15 cheekbones

    I am currently watching Monstar, and Kang Ha-neul looks exactly the same. (I suspect he looks exactly the same, too, in Heirs which I haven’t seen) *sigh*

    • 15.1 derp


  16. 16 derp

    kang ha neul had always that stiff poker face which is annoying! everytime i see him, his facial expression are always the same.. i don’t get why he got to cast in movies and dramas.. bleeh!

    • 16.1 Lord Byron


      Have you seen him in Angel Eyes, where he plays the childhood (not really a child, but …) version of Lee Sang Yoon? There, I found him play a character that was just too sweet (I mean, industrial-strength white powder sugar sweet) and emotive (he cries just about every five minutes then flashes a megawatt grin in the next minute with a frequent burst of exhilaration). As far as this goes, he was magnificent. I promise you that you will not find him stiff.

      I must confess. I just couldn’t bear Angel Eyes any longer, when it escalated his sweet/emotive act with a saintly/out-of-this-world mother.

    • 16.2 MO

      I was surprised this one got a lot of thumbs up.

      • 16.2.1 MO


  17. 17 trisha

    No, it’s fine for me. It’s not scary at all.

  18. 18 misch

    Will def watch this for Kang Ha Neul!
    He’s definitely one of the most talented actors in his generation… and he’s recognized as one even in Korea.
    Kang Ha Neul, fighting!!!

  19. 19 YoeYoe

    This movie storyline sound similar to OCN’s Oh Ji Ho Drama which was juz finished aired few weeks ago. Anyway, gonna watch it for Kang Ha Neul (putting aside my fear to click a post invovled scary posters is all because of Kang Ha Neul in the first place) hek yeah Imma gonna watch this!!!

  20. 20 Pakykul Gunk

    Akkkkkk !!!!
    You’ve warned me but I still scrolled down and then… it stuck on my head now !!!!

    • 20.1 Pakykul Gunk

      I mean “in my head” – -“

  21. 21 ketchup

    So, Kim So Eun was wearing her character’s funeral clothes?

    Kang Ha Neul!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  22. 22 MO

    Am I the only one who seems to like the gory factor in the last pic?

  23. 23 pogo

    a ghost girl who’s lost her memory and….. the teenage outcast who can see her

    So this is like Arang and the Magistrate in a modern-day high school? 😉

  24. 24 Rushie

    I love horror movies. I’m even considering watching Killer Toon soon. And come on, that picture wasn’t even the least bit scary. Don’t be a baby. Lol.

  25. 25 chante

    Makes me think of the movie Secret

  26. 26 pastmidnite

    Jumped right here to the comments! Yeah, I’m such a whimp. I’m definitely not into horrors. I even skipped the ghost parts in Bride of the Century and some other dramas with all kinds of ghostly creatures. But Kang Ha neul & Kim So eun in a movie together is soo tempting…whyyy does it have to be a horror one! I guess I’ll have to be brave enough to take a peek at the posters first…*deliberating*. Ok. Here I go…

    • 26.1 pastmidnite

      I did it, yay! Not scary at all, double yay! The last one has a thriller vibe, though, imo, not too much horror. Now, while horror is a no no for me, thriller, I could live with that!

  27. 27 Viki


  28. 28 Allarine

    Looks like she’s wearing whitey tighties on her face.

  29. 29 kate

  30. 30 Lisa
