The ghost makes its first appearance for Bring It On, Ghost
It’s only the briefest of teasers, but our first look at tvN’s fantasy-ghost-romance Bring It On, Ghost manages to squeeze in a bit of a chill. The video starts off with a happy-looking Kim So-hyun, telling us that on July 11, “A ghost appears at tvN.”
Then the screen flashes, and her image intercuts with a freakish ghost’s face — since, of course, she plays the ghost in the show, here to fight it out with hero Taecyeon. He plays the exorcist who can’t get rid of this one ghost who comes to live with him, and conflict and hijnks ensue. And romance too, though I can’t figure out how on earth they’d make that loveline a happy one. I have a feeling I’d watch just to find that out, so they’d better deliver. (I have a lot of choice words prepared in case they don’t. Don’t make me use them!)
I know it’s been a trend to have ghosts intermingling with rom-com plotlines (Master’s Sun, Oh My Ghostess, My Chilling Romance), and it’s a newer twist on the old dramaland trend of programming horror projects in the summertime (to ward off the heat with all the supernatural thrills, was the idea). I just hope that the drama delivers plenty of fun, clever entertainment and lets Kim So-hyun run wild as the ghost who was so fixated on her studies in life that she only figures out how to live once she’s dead. Hey, better late than never?
Bring It On, Ghost premieres on July 11 as tvN’s next Monday-Tuesday drama.
