Jo Jung-seok, Park Bo-young couple up for Oh My Ghostess

What an adorable pairing: Park Bo-young (Hot-Blooded Youth) is indeed taking on the new tvN drama Oh My Ghostess, and joining her is Jo Jung-seok (You’re the Best, Lee Soon-shin). Woohoo! I love them both separately, and I’m sure I’ll love them together, so this has me very excited.

Plus, let’s not forget the outrageously funny-sounding premise, where a timid young woman is possessed by the ghost of a lustful virgin. I’m sold on that logline alone, but the casting just makes everything better. And in the hands of the High School King of Savvy director and writer, I’m sure tons of hilarity is bound to ensue, showcased in heaps of awesomely awkward scenarios. As an added bonus, with Jo Jung-seok in the lead, you just know he’ll be running wild with the ad-libs (and these producers are likely to give him free rein to go hog-wild).

Park Bo-young’s character Bong-sun has zero self-confidence, and because of her extreme shyness, she doesn’t have any close friends. At the restaurant where she works as an assistant, she’s not particularly good at anything, and mostly just gets yelled at a lot. Her grandmother was a shaman so from a young age she’s been able to occasionally see ghosts, though it’s not until she meets the lascivious ghost that she gets possessed totally.

Jo Jung-seok plays Sun-woo, a conceited star chef who’s overflowing with confidence in his food and his skills. Bong-sun harbors a secret crush on him, though it doesn’t sound like he takes much notice of her — one, because he’s always surrounded by women, and two, because he’s hung up on an old flame. But then one day, Bong-sun starts acting differently, shedding her mousy personality, and ends up constantly on Sun-woo’s mind.

What ensues is a quirky, charming romance — it sounds adorable, doesn’t it? I’m hoping for lots of laugh-out-loud antics and strong actor chemistry, with lots of sweet romance to top it off. Oh My Ghostess is slated for tvN’s Friday-Saturday slot following Ex-Girlfriend Club and premieres in July.

They have 10-year age difference. But, I think they'll make a cute couple because both of them have baby-faces.

Oh please....he came with IU and looked great with her. And it's not like he looks old or anything ( that would not have been a problem either)...

Thank you. The "It is only ok as long as they look pretty and young" thing is frustrating to see. What kind of love counts wrinkles, height, weight etc? A good romance is a good romance. It does not need requirements aside from two consenting adults who like each other.

? She's 25, an adult through and through.

No problem, because Jung Seok has baby face and he plays well the immature, childish, cute characters. With IU the difference was 13 year (You're the best) but they were believable, adorable pair.

There are plenty of dramas where the woman is 7-8 years older than the guy (INR 3, I hear Your Voice) and they had lots of chemistry, I doubt age will be an issue for these two.

Omo JB exactly. What an adorable pairing. It been a while Jo Jung Seok in drama and never seen Bo Young in a small screen before. I'm so excited with this.

Sounds funny. Know what would be funnier, if he were the one possessed by the lustful female virgin ghost.

NO WAY. Is this true?

This is true. Omg, how perfect can it get? This project just topped all others coming up in terms of how excited I am for it (and I'm excited for a lot of dramas this summer!!).

My only concern will be how the romance unfolds. I'm looking forward to it, especially all the initial hijinks, but also recognize that it needs to be handled really well. Will the lustful ghost's (can't wait to see who they cast for her actual ghost body!) sudden appearance get his attention, while it's Bong-sun herself who he eventually falls for? And will there be tons of awesome bonding between the ghost and her hostess as she helps to bring her out of her shell? Please let it all unfold perfectly and amazingly so I can end up loving the drama even more than how much I love the sound of it.

I just read another post about this news and apparently the virgin ghost needs to seduce a certain number of men in order to reincarnate?

Because if that's the case, I'm even more excited.

But then won't he fall in love with the ghost and not Bong-sun herself?

Still, I'm definitely interested. It sounds like there might be some hints of Surplus Princess's lovable mermaid in there too and this is a good pairing. Thanks for the news.

The script must be interesting enough to lure Park Bo Young to dramaland!
Funnny, just 3 days ago I wondered where is PBY and now there's confirmation news about her.

I really only remember Jo Jung-seok from K2H and I don't think I've seen Park Bo-young in anything. So I don't have a huge opinion on the actors. However, the premise sounds great. I am really excited for this one!

Park Bo Young has mostly been in movies that's why only-drama viewers don't know her. As for Jo Jung Seok he's, let's say, a late bloomer when it comes to TV. He worked for long years in theater though. Both are capable actors despite people not really knowing them and hopefully this drama will bring them recognition by the larger public

Oh wow this pairing and no casting rigamarole? I can anticipate this freely! Tbh, I didn't think PBY would confirm. I was going to suggest Kim Seul-gi. She should be the ghost then!

OMG YOURE RIGHT! Kim Seul-gi would be perfect for the lustful ghost character! But then, if she gets cast, then I may forget that PBY is the lead and have to ship her so hard with JJS.

Love the premise, however I'm not thrilled about JJS. I didn't like his antics in My Love My Bride.

The topic of consent is my fear here. How will it be romantic if she is possessed? Will he be touching and kissing her without her consent or even conscious presence ala 'Master's Sun'? That's a very creepy thought, so I worry.

I mean, done well, it could be great, but dramas aren't too good with healthy romantic relationships most of the time.

Or respecting preferences. Are we going to get virgin-shaming as a joke? The "pure" virginal stereotype of female leads is disrespectful because it is set as a standard, but jumping to another "Horny 24/7" stereotype isn't any better. Especially if they go the "Here is why our pure, shy one is better than that needy s-word ghost" way.

It's just not the type of comedy or romance I'd want to see. Perhaps I'll personally leave it for later, if others speak well of it and its handling of its premise. I think the actors will look cute together though. And hurray for casting young good actresses more.

Nah, I think it'll be more like the sheltered one who is too scared of life will (hopefully) gain more perspective and courage to go for things she likes.

The ghost who died with many regrets will teach her to value life while she's alive.

For a moment... I thought they were adapting "Oh My Goddess". Park Bo-Young would of been great as "Belldandy".

Oooh, I'm on! And this is the 2nd time Jo Jung Seok is paired up with a girl who's a lot younger than him (or look a lot younger).

And oh! What if this old fame is actually the virgin ghost?

This guy is everywhere. I think it's just me but I just don't find the fascination with him... another intriguing plot, yet, the pairing fails to interest me.

Sold sold and sold. Glad to see this young lady getting a leading role. Even of the age gap is there she is an adult 25. That's what acting is all about. And if him and IU and look good together, plus that show actually had a "real" kiss, it will be fine.
