Bring It On, Ghost’s schoolgirl ghost and her exorcist roommate

Of all the bizarre living situations in dramaland (and there are so many, really), this one between a ghost and an exorcist is probably going to be one of the weirdest roommate pairings we’ll see in a while. Here are future housemates Kim So-hyun (Page Turner) and Ok Taecyeon (Assembly) getting into character for tvN’s new supernatural horror comedy Bring It On, Ghost, airing on Mondays and Tuesdays this summer.

The webtoon adaptation stars Taecyeon as a young man who can see and touch ghosts, and makes a living working part-time as an exorcist while going to school. He’s working to save money because he hates his abilities, and wants to remove his eyes so that he doesn’t see ghosts anymore. Gack. That’s a little extreme. Couldn’t you just wear two piratey eye patches and call it a day?

Kim So-hyun plays a high school senior who did nothing but study for the college entrance exam, and died just before being able to take the test. That grudge is actually what turns her into a ghost, and it’s not until she’s dead that she discovers fun and boys. She’ll take up residence in the exorcist’s home and together they’ll have adventures chasing away other spooks.

Kwon Yul (One More Happy Ending) plays a veterinary professor who runs an animal hospital. He has a kind, warm demeanor, but he’s a mysterious character who’s got some secrets. Kang Ki-young (Come Back, Ajusshi) and Lee David (Mirror of the Witch) play Taecyeon’s friends, and all three are members of the mysterious supernatural club Ghost Net. Comic actors Kim Sang-ho (Lucky Romance) and Lee Do-yeon (the hilariously self-involved lawyer from Let’s Eat) round out the cast, as a monk and a stalker ghost.

It’s hard to get much out of the stills, but I’m hoping for some wacky humor to balance out the chills. Otherwise I’m gonna need some eye patches in order to watch this drama.

Bring It On, Ghost follows Oh Hae-young Again and premieres July 11.

Everytime I see news about this drama, I'm like "!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

And then I remember Taec...

Mind you that's not acting ability, but the age difference that still bothers me most. It's very evident and very visually jarring, especially in the pictures with her in school uniform.

I have the opposite feeling. The age difference doesn't bother me at all, it's the fact that Mr. Wooden is back again. The only difference in the facial expression in those four stills of Taec up above is that in one of them he has his mouth slightly open. I guess that is the point where he has reached his limit, life has no more meaning and he is about to follow the same tragic arc and put out his eyes, a la Oedipus. The fact that his mouth is open means that the shattering cry of the ultimate futility of battling fate is issuing from his lips. Oh, the feels.

Nice comment! I love it!
But actually (the drama being, I believe, a comedy) his limitted acting skills might work this time: he'll just have to keep that sort of funny-surprised expression on his face while Kim So Hyun does the hard work.
Well...that is...I hope it works...

He has that 'struggling-to-remember-my-next-line' look in his eyes in every single one of these stills. This does not bode well.

(frankly, the very fact that he has an acting career and that people indulge it to the extent of giving him lead roles doesn't bode well either).

I agree, I'm not really getting what emotion Taecyeon is trying to convey in the stills above for those scenes. He looks great, but his acting is very stiff and not as natural (maybe it doesn't come as easy to him). He'd be better off honing his acting skills as a secondary character in a long weekend drama, if he wishes to pursue acting in the long run, instead of being cast as a lead in these short trendy dramas.

But he already did that. And he is still this bad even after that. His having an acting career is like a turtle trying to compete in Olympic high jump.

okay, i'm going to be optimistic here (i'm trying OKAY) and say that taec CAN pass as a college student. there are some old @ss looking college students (even high school students) that I have seen in my day, so i can give him a pass this time.

it all really depends on his character/personality tbh. if they mature KSH up a little bit and dumb taec down, this could work. i just have to keep pushing the weird age gap into the back of my mind so i can enjoy this drama for KSH atleast.

Well, the worst case was Lee Min Ho in "Heirs". No way to believe he was a student - and a school student, at that, not a college one! Oh, I forget. At the end we are told he will "do better with his studies next year" or something. This means he is supposed to still have another year at school, so he was supposed to be, what, 17?

Nope, he still looks way too old for her. But the lighting director and makeup artist/stylists have made nothing short of heroic efforts to help age him down - someone give them a pay rise for it.

(and someone also tell the casting director you could have spared your production team all this effort by simply, you know, casting someone who's NOT a decade+ older than your leading lady)

Taecyeon could pull off being a college student, but his leading lady would have to be college aged. Kim So-Hyun just looks very young and standing next to him looks like she could be his sister. I would have loved to have seen her co-star Ji Soo from 'Page Turner' star in this drama with her instead, even though he is also older than you the age gap isn't as large compared to Taeceyon.

I sort of agree. The male lead might be a miscast. I think Ji Soo is already committed to another project though. Sad.

I'm not going to knock it till I see it, though? Maybe the story would be enough. I hate to admit that I'm one of those people who judge a drama by its cast, but if the actors don't draw me in, or lack chemistry, I tend to drop it. :\

Taec looks like an oppa (that has a sister complex) who take his sister to school while wearing her bag.
I wish the story makes me forget about his looks (I know that's impossible unless I'm not seeing his face which is mean that I have to completely not watch this drama)
Gosh this make me confuse..

I'm okay even if I should wait for this drama to be aired next year, as long as they bring Jisoo here. The pairing from Page Turner need more exposure wkwk.

Good actors/actresses are liven out ood story and often save the messy story. But bad actors/actresses neither liven up nor save any story and ruined the enjoyment of watching dramas instead.

Prove to me that I'm wrong, Taec. Puhleasee -_-

Okay guys...lets be clear im not a huge fan of Taec or KSH so im tried to be neutral here...okay, in my opinion dont judge before this drama started coz maybe writer and director have something when they pick the actor and actress especially this is TVN drama and there is no way that they didnt think of this carefully because its gonna hurt them when this drama didnt turn out well so just wait this drama start and judge after 1/2/3/4 episode (: #just my 2 cents

Honestly, when there is something related to Taecyeon in dramabeans I come to read how pressed it makes you. Amusing. You're always all over the comments. If your opinion mattered you would have known ages ago.....

@ :)) - why are you so pressed, they only said the truth about his acting. It's poor, and he is too old to star with an underage girl, you think he shouldn't have criticisms for that?

It must be fun if he gets his name tag on dramabeans, so I can search up his history in drama xD

Damn Taec actually looks so much younger than he did in Dream High which was 5(!) years ago. Shows what styling and make up can really do. As for chemistry, I think they'll be okay. Who thought I'd like YSY and KSR together?

I'm not quite sold on anything yet but I'm also not against anything in particular. Taec character sounds intense in a weird way. Still, I'm looking forward to it so hopefully it's watchable.

I haven't been reading all the comments about this show, so sorry if this has already been suggested:
Have folks considered that
1) she's a ghost, so it's not like they're going to be able to have inappropriate (or any!) physical contact; and
2) she's a ghost, so for all we know, she could be a couple of decades OLDER than he is, lol! Unless there's something that says she died within the last year - is there?

2) has been mentioned in past comments before, but as for 1) it's in the show's premise that the living together hijinks will start because they accidentally kiss while fighting. :(

I read that Taec's character drives away ghosts by actually beating them up. So he's capable of "touching" them.

the actress is still 11 years younger and underage though. And she is a living human, not a ghost.
and her character has a love line in the story, with Taecyeon's character/they kiss.

In my opinion it's wrong to put a minor actress in such a situation with 11 years older costar. Maybe nothing happens but as many said, it makes such pairings seem 'normal'. And that is wrong. I like dramas but not enough to excuse such a trend, my enjoyment does not come first here.

That's how I feel too. It's wrong to promote such extreme age gap romantic pairings with minor actresses, maybe nothing happens to those girls but the image and message being sent out that it's ok to pair a 15 year old with a 30 year old/16-17 year old with 27 years old, I won't support dramas like that.

I see some of Taecyeon's fans getting angry that he is getting criticism for his lacking acting skills and his choice to take this drama after KSH confirmed.

But how do you defend this? He is a senior idol who gets to choose his schedules and projects, this was not forced on him like some rookie idol would be. He can do so many other projects yet he chooses this one with the minor costar? He has to be responsible for his choices too.

Wow people have low expectation in Taec. I really like his look, charisma and vibe which I think affects his performance in acting.I always get this cool vibe, unwilling to show his emotions in his acting. I even root for him in Dream High instead of Kim soo hyun.
I think he needs to take a role that could make him escape that give 'I' m so cool' vibe and try, I dunno maybe silly or villain character.

I think he's okay in earnest roles like in Cinderella's Sister and Wonderful Days. This role just seems wrong for him because he's supposed to act young to match the character and a much younger actress. That's already a tall order even for good actors, not to mention that Taec looks old for his age. (Or maybe he just looks his age while other idols look too babyish?) So the odds are stacked against him. Poor guy.

He just seems too big and muscular next to her fragile body, like Beauty and The Beast. I dont have high expectation for his acting (I only watched Dream High and Cinderella and I have no particular impression abt him) so I just finger-cross that he will be able to live up to the character. On the other hand, I eager to see if Kim So Hyun will portray a different image this time (she said Kim Hyun Ji is the opposite of her previous role). I like to see her play innocent role like Soo-Ok (Pure Love), misery role like Lee Soo Yeon (I miss you), badass Go Eun Byul (School 2015) Yoon yoo Seul (Page Turner) but this time I even expect more from her because its her first rom-com-mixing-sassy role and she is a GHOST kkk.
Beside that I dont have a problem with the age gap bcs in the drama he is 25 and she is 19, that is totally fine by me because I watch the drama not their real life romance.
