Watched the first ep of Catch the Ghost instead of Nokdu tonight. I really wanted to like it for Kim Sun-ho, but I found the mishmash of comedy and crime thriller just too dissonant. On the one hand, we have a couple of high tech kidnapper/rapists, and on the other hand the incredible slo-mo flight of our reluctant rulebound hero on a Barbie-pink moped. On the one hand, a missing sister and a mysterious yet prankish serial killer, and on the other hand our spunky heroine investigating in a way thatโ€™s more likely to make her the next victim. I really wanted to like it. I really did. But it just felt SOOOO awkward.

    I’m giving it 4 episodes to decide.

      I decided to hang in there with you, and tonight was quite a bit better. But the scenes I liked best were between KJS and his mother. Those were just lovely.

        I hope they give Jung Yoo-jin something better to do than wander around with a flashlight and look thoughtful.

    I feel like it’s trying too hard at the comedy. And also another dumb police show. Sigh.. I’ll probably stick around though because I don’t have other shows to watch on Mon-Tue.
