Kim Seul-gi joins Oh My Ghostess as lusty virgin ghost
What a perfect fit. If I had to cast a lustful virgin ghost to go around possessing unsuspecting drama heroines and turning them boy-crazy, I’d definitely put Kim Seul-gi at the top of that list. Okay, so she might be the only name on that list. The SNL Korea funny girl is the latest cast member to join the new supernatural comedy Oh My Ghostess, headed to tvN this summer.
Kim Seul-gi has been steadily making a name for herself in dramaland playing quirky supporting characters (Surplus Princess, Discovery of Romance, Flower Boy Next Door) and she always manages to make each one memorable and endearing. I can’t wait to see what she does with this one.
Oh My Ghostess is the new drama from the team behind the hilarious High School King of Savvy, and it stars Park Bo-young (Hot-Blooded Youth) as a shy young woman who gets possessed by a virgin ghost. She’s so timid that she has no friends and spends her days constantly getting yelled at by Jo Jung-seok (You’re the Best, Lee Soon-shin), the haughty star chef at the restaurant where she works as his assistant chef.
Kim Seul-gi has been cast to play the ghost, ironically named Soon-ae, for “pure, chaste love.” Well I guess it might apply to her human self who died a virgin. The character description calls her on par with a bachelor ghost for having the most regret in the afterlife, which of course is what makes bachelor/virgin ghosts mythically the most vengeful spirits. In this version she’ll mostly be comical with her relentless libido, turning Park Bo-young’s shy wallflower into a sudden man-chaser.
It also says that the ghost can’t lie, and if that means that Park Bo-young’s heroine also can’t lie while possessed? That would make for even more embarrassment than I hoped for. Pervy neighborhood ghost running amok and causing romance shenanigans? You know I’m there.
Oh My Ghostess follows Ex-Girlfriend Club on Fridays and Saturdays in July.
