Bring It On, Ghost: Episode 9

When it becomes harder to hide blossoming feelings, the question arises — can a ghost experience real love? Could a human ever have a healthy relationship with a spirit, or would the world view it as unnatural and wrong? Being in any relationship with a ghost is difficult, be it friendship or possibly more, and the time is nearing for Bong-pal and Hyun-ji to decide if their continued association is right, or healthy, for either of them.

 
EPISODE 9 RECAP

Hyun-ji wins the game of rock-paper-scissors with Bong-pal, then asks for her wish — for him to forget her confession that she likes him. Bong-pal grumbles to himself that she’s confusing him, and she says she can stay with him longer if he grants this wish. But before he can say a word, Hyun-ji starts to grow dizzy and flicker, then she disappears.

Bong-pal panics and runs in circles, calling Hyun-ji’s name. Just a moment later she reappears, looking shocked, and Bong-pal runs to her and grabs her in a hug. Relieved tears spring to his eyes, and he tells her fervently never to disappear again.

In a large house somewhere, a girl in a flowing white dress approaches a sleeping man. She cries bloody tears as she reaches out a hand to his throat, and he wakes and screams. (Cameos by Jin Yi-han and Lee Soo-kyung.)

Bong-pal and Hyun-ji are adorably nervous as they arrive back at his place, and Bong-pal retreats to his bedroom as quickly as possible. He comes right back out to offer to let Hyun-ji sleep in his room from now on, stating that it’s too hot in there for him. Oh you, so chivalrous. Hyun-ji trots into his room and finally lets herself squee at his obvious care for her, and Bong-pal smiles as he overhears her happy giggles.

Through Detective Yang’s careful inquiries, we learn a bit more about Hye-sung… his father died in an accident when he was a kid, and he grew up with only his mother. He keeps in touch with her now, but he doesn’t visit her. Other than that he’s pretty boring, pays his bills on time, never gets in trouble. He does a lot of volunteer work and never even loses his temper.

He does have some fascinating medical records, though. When he was young he was sick a lot, but other than that he’s pretty perfect. “Right, too perfect to be human,” Detective Yang muses to himself.

He reluctantly decides this is a dead end, and asks his assistant to look into Hyun-joo’s cell phone records for any other likely suspects. But he does add for Hye-sung’s phone records to be checked for the two days that Hyun-joo was missing.

Hye-sung pays his respects at Hyun-joo’s funeral, and takes the opportunity to listen for any rumors about her death. Her fellow students seem to be suspicious of one mourner, a boy named Min-soo who asked Hyun-joo out last year. Hye-sung’s sharp gaze lands on the kid for just a moment, then he turns to go.

He runs into Seo-yeon on his way out, but he’s not his usual smiling and affable self today. He curtly tells her to go offer her condolences, and quickly leaves. He waits in his car for the now-drunk Min-soo to leave the premises, then drives away.

Hyun-ji wakes in the morning to the sounds of Bong-pal making breakfast, and whoa, he’s really gone all out. He gives her a big grin when he sees that she’s awake, and sets down a massive meal. Hyun-ji is too busy smiling at Bong-pal to eat much, and she takes these weird tiny bites like she’s trying to look like a dainty dainty princess, hee. She acts like she always eats like this when Bong-pal notices, and he looks at her like she’s lost her mind.

They both grow shy again when their hands bump on the way to the bus stop, then when the light turns green, Bong-pal takes Hyun-ji’s hand and they run. Later they find themselves very close together at the library shelves, and a student pushing by shoves Bong-pal even closer. Hyun-ji blushes furiously and poofs away.

In-rang orders lunch boxes for the club, and Chun-sang assumes the extra-fancy fourth one is for him, heh. In-rang smacks his hand and says it’s for Hyun-ji, all giggly over his crush, and if I didn’t know any better, I’d think Chun-sang was wildly jealous. Actually yeah, we’re just going to go with jealous.

Hyun-ji finds a spot in the park to enjoy her thudding heart, and wishes Kyung-ja were here to dish about Bong-pal. She wonders where her friend’s gone, since she hasn’t seen her in a while.

Bong-pal arrives at the club room and wilts when Hyun-ji isn’t here, and he has to break it to In-rang when he adorably waves hi to Hyun-ji. Awww, poor disappointed In-rang. Chun-sang smirks at his chance to eat her expensive lunch, but a puppy-snarl from In-rang disabuses him of that idea.

Chun-sang notices that Bong-pal seems down, and Bong-pal asks them what someone should do if he wants to do something nice for a girl, but hasn’t got any ideas. Not him of course, he’s asking for a friend.

Chun-sang’s advice is that first, Bong-pal should figure out what kind of men the girl in question likes. Using In-rang as an example, he points out that it’s okay to be ugly (hey!), because women don’t care so much about looks. He advises Bong-pal to show her his profile with that manly Adam’s apple, then to gaze at her passionately to stir her heart. And lastly, he should make her laugh.

Bong-pal heads home, but the place is empty, and he finds Hyun-ji’s doctored photos of himself and Seo-yeon on the retreat. He goes all goofy when he sees the one she drew herself into, and heads up to look for her on the roof.

She’s there, and Bong-pal fusses at her for making him look for her when he just told her not to disappear on him. He remembers Chun-sang’s advice and lifts his face to show off his profile, leaning in awkwardly to make sure she notices his Adam’s apple (it’s two inches from her face, I think she notices).

That doesn’t work, so he tries step two, the Look. Oh god, I’m dying, and Bong-pal looks like he’s about to crack up. Hyun-ji just thinks they’re having a staring contest, so Bong-pal bails. He’s left with making her laugh, and tells her stupid jokes until Hyun-ji asks if there’s something wrong with him today.

Bong-pal decides to go with what he knows works — grilling meat for her. He smiles as she dances and digs in, having figured out the way to her heart. They sit and look at the stars after dinner, and Bong-pal tells Hyun-ji about Altair and Vega, and Hyun-ji says they must be sad to be so far apart. Bong-pal sees it differently, saying that they’re probably grateful that they get to meet once a year, even for only one day.

Hyun-ji likes the sound of that, and Bong-pal tells her about more stars, explaining that his father taught him about constellations. Swoon… now that’s how you impress a girl, by being yourself.

Late that night, Hyun-ji wants to talk, but Bong-pal tells her to sleep since they’re going out tomorrow. She asks if it’s a date, and he doesn’t deny it, and sends her to bed.

In the morning he asks what she wants to do, and Hyun-ji wants to keep it simple, like a real date — a meal, tea, a movie. He taps some suds on her nose, and she retaliates by smearing his whole face with bubbles, and they cutely chase each other around before going to get ready for their date.

Bong-pal bounces nervously as he waits, wearing what looks like his best shirt. Hyun-ji is contemplating her limited wardrobe and trying to decide what to wear, and she tries on combinations of her outfits and huffs that nothing looks right.

She finally shows up downstairs, wearing her pink dress and black “work” shoes. Bong-pal notices but doesn’t comment, and takes her straight to a clothing store. I knew he’d come through.

He doesn’t even care that the shopkeeper is giving him weird looks for holding up potential outfits and talking to thin air, and they finally settle on a pretty white dress and the high heels Hyun-ji has been coveting. They go on the cutest date ever, flirting outrageously and holding hands at every opportunity.

Bong-pal does get some strange looks, as he’s not even trying to hide the fact that he’s on a date with a ghost. He buys a couple seat at the movies, drawing stares from nearby moviegoers, but he doesn’t even care. He easily agrees when Hyun-ji says they feel like a real couple, and feeds her popcorn. I can’t stand it.

They go out to eat, where Bong-pal gets more weird looks when he orders for two and asks for Hyun-ji’s glass to be filled. Hyun-ji basks in his attention, happy to be treated like a real live girl for an entire day.

As they walk home, Hyun-ji promises to work hard to earn back some of the money Bong-pal spent on her today. They run when it starts to rain on them, And Bong-pal buys an umbrella for them to share. It’s not a big umbrella, and he lets his shoulder get wet so that Hyun-ji can stay dry, which is so cliché but I love it.

Detectives Yang and Kim get some new information — photos from a toll booth CCTV camera that clearly show Hye-sung’s car. Yang orders him brought in for questioning, even if they have to arrest him to get him here.

Hye-sung is also thinking about the detectives, feeling that they’re getting too close to the truth. That same night, Hyun-ji sleeps restlessly, reliving her few memories of her accident. Bong-pal hears her gasp awake just as the lights go out, and he rushes into his room to check on her.

He sits on the bed with her to calm her down, and when she’s feeling better, she asks him when he started seeing ghosts. He says he was five when it started, that monk Myung-chul says he’s got evil spirits inside of him. He admits that he was scared back then, and gives Hyun-ji a meaningful look… “But now it’s okay.”

Hyun-ji thanks him for everything, and says that everything feels okay when she’s with him. She used to be scared and lonely, having woken up a ghost with no memories, but no longer. Even if she never gets her memory back, she’s happy now. “I’m so happy you can see me.” Bong-pal returns the feeling, saying that he’s happy he can see her, too.

Detective Yang questions Hye-sung (who is looking quietly furious) about the pictures of his car, which were taken of him entering then leaving the area where Hyun-joo’s body was found, on the night she was murdered. Hye-sung claims that he was visiting his mother, who lives in that area.

Before Yang can question him further, they’re interrupted by Detective Kim — Lee Min-soo, the student who knew Hyun-joo, has been found dead. It appears that he committed suicide by jumping from his apartment building roof, and he left a suicide note confessing to Hyun-joo’s murder.

However, we see the truth, that Hye-sung had followed him home after the funeral and thrown him, one-handed, out his window. He’d written a text to Min-soo’s mother, confessing to Hyun-joo’s murder, before leaving.

With a confession on record the detectives are forced to let Hye-sung go, but Detective Yang is uneasy. He asks that the case file be left on his desk to go over in more detail later.

Hye-sung heads to his office, where he sees Bong-pal and Hyun-ji looking at the dog in the window (Hyun-ji: “This dog consoled me when you upset me.” Bong-pal: “When did I ever upset you?” LOL). Hye-sung looks directly at Hyun-ji and asks why she’s here, though Bong-pal assumes he’s talking to him and answers. Hye-sung invites Bong-pal in for tea, and at Hyun-ji’s enthusiasm he’s forced to agree.

Hye-sung watches Bong-pal watching Hyun-ji, and says it’s like he’s looking at his girlfriend. Then he claims he meant the way Bong-pal was looking at the dog. Right. Hye-sung invites Bong-pal to do his summer volunteer work here at the clinic, and Bong-pal gratefully accepts.

The dog runs off to Hye-sung’s office with Hyun-ji right behind, and Hye-sung drops the cordial expression. In the office, Hyun-ji notices the butterfly cutout but dismisses it, and crouches down to pet the dog. Hye-sung finds her there by his desk, and advances on her with doom in his eyes.

Before anything can happen, Bong-pal finds him and says that he’ll be going now. Hye-sung loudly says that it was rude to come into his office, again sounding like he’s talking to Bong-pal but clearly addressing Hyun-ji. He sends them both upstairs and closes the book of papers he used to make the butterfly, and on the back of the book is a name: Kim Hyun-ji. ~shudder~

Monk Myung-chul is back in town, and he sees Hye-sung sending Bong-pal off. He instantly recognizes Hye-sung as the man he saw outside Bong-pal’s apartment building. He catches up to Bong-pal and hears that Hye-sung is his professor, but Bong-pal says Hye-sung doesn’t live in the same building as himself.

Hyun-ji has to stay out of the way while Myung-chul is at Bong-pal’s place, but the monk notices that Bong-pal keeps looking at a certain spot in the room. Bong-pal goes to talk to Hyun-ji, explaining that she can’t come in because Myung-chul can sometimes hear ghosts.

While he’s gone, Myung-chul looks in his phone for his father’s number, but only finds a text from Bong-pal’s dad that was sent while he was still living in that guest house. The text says something about Bong-pal’s middle school graduation, but seems to have been cut off. Myung-chul asks when Bong-pal’s middle school graduation was, and Bong-pal just remembers it was some time in February.

Bong-pal gets a call and acts cagey, telling Myung-chul that he just has to go out for a bit. He gives Hyun-ji a meaningful look and the two head out, while Myung-chul remembers that Bong-pal’s father recorded his middle school graduation ceremony, and goes looking for the video.

Bong-pal and Hyun-ji’s target today is a possessed man, and In-rang tells Hyun-ji to be careful, making Hyun-ji tease Bong-pal about being jealous. Chun-sang slams on the brakes, also jealous but for a different reason, heh.

The possessed man is lying in bed, screaming over and over, while his family huddle in fear and worry. His sister explains that he used to be very sick but he recovered, and now he’s having these seizures. We see the man cowering in his bed from an unseen presence, and once he even tried to kill himself to make it stop. He hasn’t left his bed since, and spends his every waking moment screaming.

They enter his bedroom, and the sister pulls open his curtains, but they’re immediately yanked closed by themselves. Bong-pal and Hyun-ji can see the female ghost, sitting on the man’s chest and caressing his face, but she disappears when Bong-pal moves a step towards her.

It’s Hyun-ji who notices the photos of the man with a woman on his desk, and she recognizes her as the now-dead woman. They show the photo to the man’s mother, who smashes it and demands to know if that woman is choking her son. The sister explains that she was her brother’s girlfriend, but she died.

She tells them that once her brother falls asleep, he sleeps for a few days at a time. They promise to come back a few days from now, and ask her to call them if anything happens.

Myung-chul watches Bong-pal’s graduation video (ha, he had so much hair), and he sees something in the background. He rewinds and WHOA, it’s Hye-sung. He was there. Why was he there?!

Outside the house, Chun-sang schools In-rang on what happens when you fall for a ghost, you end up with that guy. Hyun-ji overhears and seems to take the words to heart, which Bong-pal notices. In-rang shushes Chun-sang, but it’s too late.

Myung-chul goes to Hye-sung’s clinic, and Hye-sung spots him through the window. The two men stare at each other, a silent, mutual challenge in their eyes.

Hyun-ji now thinks back on her date with Bong-pal, and all the people who stared at him as he talked and laughed with her. Bong-pal hadn’t seemed to notice, or at least he didn’t care, but Hyun-ji had seen them. They stop in front of a store window, and only Bong-pal’s reflection can be seen, which seems to hammer the point home — Hyun-ji is not a real person.

Bong-pal stands in front of Hyun-ji to get her attention, and he takes her hand to lead her home. In a sad voice, she asks if they’ll be okay, since people will think their relationship is ridiculous. She pulls her hand from his, and walks on alone.

But Bong-pal reaches out and pulls her back around to face him. Confidently, he says, “I like you. I don’t care what others think. You’re the one I like.”

And right there in the street, in front of shoppers and tourists and everyone, Bong-pal reaches out, cups Hyun-ji’s face, and kisses her.

COMMENTS

See, now that’s how you do it, that’s how you show the girl you like her. I’m so proud of Bong-pal right now I could burst. For a guy who was so nervous and unsure of how he felt such a short time ago, he sure did find his footing quickly, and he did and said exactly what Hyun-ji needed to hear in that moment. No tricks, no games, just an honest confession and a heartfelt kiss. Good boy.

I think that what I really love most about Bong-pal and Hyun-ji’s growing attraction to each other is how slowly and naturally it’s developed. There was no love at first sight without even knowing the person, neither of them was pushing the other into anything, but at each stage their association made sense for both of them. At any given point they’ve been equals, trading housing, clothes, and food in exchange for help fighting ghosts, so at every moment they’ve been on equal and mutually beneficial footing. It’s only natural that spending so much time together, they would become friends, especially since they’ve always been able to be open about their feelings, negative AND positive.

And with both of them being young and attractive, not to mention decent people, it only makes sense that they would each eventually notice that about the other and start to have romantic feelings. You can see it on how they treat each other, the way Hyun-ji is always there for Bong-pal, and how he always knows what she’s thinking almost before she thinks it. I think I’m so used to seeing couples create their own problems through miscommunication (or complete lack of communication) that it makes Bong-pal and Hyun-ji’s easy synergy that much more rewarding to watch. And it’s all happened with perfect timing and natural progression — nothing about their business partnership, friendship, or now-budding relationship has ever felt forced or out of place.

Speaking of which, how cute is awkward-in-love Bong-pal? So cute! I knew he would be, because he’s never even had friends, much less a girlfriend, and the basics of romancing a pretty girl are way out of his sphere of experience. The one time he let himself like someone he got dumped before he ever even started, so the fact that he’s so willing to even try with Hyun-ji is the sweetest thing. But as natural as their friendship has grown, and even though he already knows she likes him, he’s still so freaking cute as he tries so hard and fails, I can’t even stand it. But he absolutely perfect on their date, when he gave Hyun-ji the most romantic gift he could possibly give her — treating her like a live person. For just that one day, Hyun-ji didn’t have to pretend she wasn’t there or be shy about her feelings, they just acted like a real, live couple. It was so sweet, and I had happy tears in my eyes for Hyun-ji the whole time. I wish it hadn’t so quickly become a source of pain for her, and I hope that Bong-pal can dispel her fears.

Hye-sung is certainly starting to show his true colors, skating a fine line between keeping his secret identity secret, and tipping his hand. More than once now he’s looked right at Hyun-ji and even spoken directly to her, though he’s managed to make it look and sound like he’s speaking to Bong-pal. He doesn’t seem the sort to let anger get the better of him, especially since he’s known for being calm and even-tempered, but I can see how he’s starting to feel exposed with the detectives on his case and Hyun-ji growing too close. He’s still exhibiting an iron control over himself, but at some point he’s either going to crack, or kill one too many persons and give himself away.

The little tidbits we got about Hye-sung’s past are interesting, especially the part about his father dying in an accident, and his being ill as a child. I wonder if that’s when the demon-thing possessed him, or if he became able to see ghosts at a young age like Bong-pal and was only later possessed. Or even worse, if he’s not possessed at all, but that the ability to see ghosts somehow twisted him into something evil and corrupt. Bong-pal was lucky and manages to live a mostly normal life, but I could see how coming into such an ability when very young could mar a child, and cause them to grow up into something otherworldly and evil. It’s very curious, how Bong-pal and Hye-sung have such similar backgrounds — a parent dying young, being estranged from the remaining parent as an adult, the claim of “evil spirits” inside, the ability to see ghosts — and now I’m more curious about Hye-sung than ever. Honestly, the speculation and constantly-shifting theories about his origins and motives are a lot of fun, but I’m dying to know what his deal is. Dying in the metaphorical sense, of course.

I keep forgetting hyunji is a ghost. She has so little ghostly characteristic and now I'm really skewed toward thought that she is not died yet.

me too, she looks diferent from her friend ghost now double deceased thanks to Hye Sung. I think Hyun Ji is in a coma. she has a complexion unlike all the other ghosts. she must be actually alive but wandering around. and when she starts disappearing it is different too, like she is going back to her body. and if she was dead Hye Sung wouldnt look like that to her. he wants to destroy her soul so she can never return, wake up and tell everyone what he did

that´s wxactly what I was going to add. She might get an amnesia to replace her amnesia and forget him.

I admit that the drama is getting more interesting, I am just disturbed by Hye Sungs´ grass snake eyes. I dont like this actor.

0

I'm tempering my optimistic hope that she's in a coma rather than truly dead with the reminder that Hyun Ji's more "alive" look could be due to practical production reasons rather than in-story reasons. I'm sure it's less costly and takes less time to keep her looking alive rather than having to put ghostly effects on her all the time.

Also, she's our female lead. It would be less endearing to watch scenes like the one at the end if she were ghostly pale and looked demonic or bloody from whatever accident might have killed her.

The problem with the "in a coma" theory is that her real self would then be 5 years older.. and I don't think the drama could pull that off convincingly. They're just not going to be able to make her look 5 years older with makeup, and they can't cast another actress.

I don't see how being 5 years older would be a problem. I think as a ghost she's like 17 or 18. Adding 5 years she would be 22 or 23. I don't think you change that much from 18 to 23.

Required fields are marked *

that was the first thing that i notice she does not have the white-y aura that surrounds her so i guess she is just in coma and everytime that she fades away, she goes back to her body since if you look closely to the background where hyun-ji or the background is rotation it looks like a hospital. lol

In further support for the 'Has Not Yet Died' Camp, Hyun Ji doesn't make the dogs bark the way her ghost friend Kyung Ja did. Given that the vet doesn't have problems with the dogs either (though cats are a different matter), this may indicate that he too is not ghost possessed, but the twisted evil version of Bong Pal.

I've come to the point where I hope Hyunji is not dead because that separation would be too heartbreaking.

I'm scared for the monk, I don't see him living for long with Hyesung around and since he doesn't have his powers anymore he can't even properly defend himself.

Hyesung is possessed, no questions asked. Remember the black mist he had when he killed Kyungja ? I think the next ghost case might explain about him, he was sick then got better just like the man and his fiancée. Things just turned for the worse (or the best if we still compare the two cases). The spirit possessing him is looking for something though and we still have no clue as to what it is.

And no offense but what's the purpose of Hyunjoo ? The woman is quite useless and doesn't add anything to the story...

Decided to un-lurk and show myself coz I simply can't contain my love for BongPal any longer kekeke!
Thanks for the very quick recap, LP!! I do notice that you've gotten faster and faster! Really appreciate your love for this drama too!

My thoughts on what Hye Sung is looking for:
Could it be that when BongPal was young, an evil spirit possessed him and this evil one is the same one that possesses Hye Sung now?

This means that perhaps when BongPal was being possessed, the evil one actually left something INSIDE BongPal, the so-called "thing" that Hye Sung is trying to recover? Maybe before he was kicked out of BongPal by the monk he forgot to take this "thing" together with him?

Or, could it be that the "thing" is not something left behind by the evil one but actually something that BongPal already has within him since he was born? Or this something could be a "thing" that BongPal's parents put inside him for safe-keeping away from all evil spirits? Its like BongPal is meant to be the safety-box for this "thing" which all evil spirits want?

After the Monk got rid of the evil spirit (which then back-fires and he lost his powers while transferring them to BongPal), perhaps the Monk's power actually sealed the existence of this "thing" within BongPal so that it is not visible or known to anyone? Its like the Monk's power keeps this thing's existence inside BongPal from being known/seen/felt by evil spirits.

Just some thoughts since this episode revealed that BongPal was in fact possessed once in his childhood by something evil and this fact can't be a coincidence! It has to tie-in with the story and why Hye Sung is still looking for this "thing" around the Park family.

What do you guys think?

PS. I'm dying from all these BongPal cuteness, especially his adorable red ears. Er, I mean Taec's red ears sooooooooo darrrrrrrrrrn cute! The Cutest I can't even.... Swoon..... and its the first time I'm swooing over Taec and now digging out all my 3 Meals a Day for re-watch!

I was seriously cringing when they were on their date, esp when they showed him doing the things he did with hyunji but from the others' POV. I'm really curious about the professor's relationship with Hyunji and Bong Pal, like why is he so interested with his family! ?

I'm guessing that if Hyunji is in a coma, that both Bong Pal and her will be tgt in real life once Hyunji wakes up. But otherwise, Bong Pal might end up dying and Hyunji might die after being in a coma and well, end up tgt as well. Hopefully, they do end up tgt one way or another!

I couldn't help my self to laugh while watching them . Imagine you have a ghost girlfriend ,you having date together ,holding hands and even kissing . I'm sure people will think that you're crazy when they find you talking alone . You looks weird to them.
Anyway..this drama was very entertaining . I love Hyun Ji and Bong Pal chemistry..

Ont he contrary,

People should have been freaked out about dissapearing popcorns in thin air, hair bands hanging in thin air, a whole plate of food vanishing right in front of their eyes..

But then drama chose to see the comedy from 3rd person persepctive..of a madman doing random things with an invisible person

I forgot the episode, but the food wouldnt be disappearing. In one scene, we see that even though she is eating the food in the "spiritual" world, the actual view of it is that the dishes and food are unmoved an uneaten, like at the altar.

Remember that Bong Pal has to burn clothes in order to give them to her to wear. We saw him do that with the pink dress. We must assume all her clothes are spirit clothes now, and other people will not see them floating around.

You know the funny part..

When BP had pulled HJ out of that lake.. he was all wet and she was all dry..

so him tryign to shield her with the umbrella is uber cute..

I am still truly amazed how Taec makes BP so appealing with zero acting skills

Maybe Bong-Pal is just treating Hyun-Ji the way Taecyeon would treat Kim So-Hyun ??? I mean, who wouldn't act smitten around her?

The umbrella scene with bongpal and hyunji reminded me of something that happened in real. On a rainy day, i saw an old man walk past with an umbrella alone just like bongpal, as if there was someone else with him. The old man kept getting wet and i thought he was weird. After watching today's episode i am creeped out!!

Same thing happened to me on my way home. The bus was full but this man reserved and paid for an empty window seat. At first I thought it was to make him comfortable but his posture was like there was something or someone beside him.

So loving this show: It's light, sweet and cute! Quite similar to Oh My Ghost but it's all good cos I enjoyed that drama too. I think Taec really suits the role of Bong Pal. If I hadn't read before that he's not known for good acting, I wouldn't have noticed at all.

The comic duo is so adorable. That same guy in OMG and Savvy really plays that role well in whatever drama he's in

True. The evil guy pretending to be good reminds me so much of Im Ji Hwan and the overall tone (cinematography/color?) of the show, I find reminiscent of OMG.

But I'm most enjoying the 2 leads, esp Kim So Hyun. So adorable

When they are sitting on the bed together, unknowingly BP absorbs some black smoke from Hyun-ji, and Hyun-ji some white smoke from BP.

I don't know what the mythos is in this setting, but it looks like Hyun-ji is taking life essense from BP; and the evil inside BP is it the death essense from being around ghosts, in the past BP hasn't been around ghosts long enough , he pummels them into oblivion, to absorb too much yin energy from the undead, but if Hyun-ji stays with him what then, (but I'm guessing that being able to feed off BP's life energy is what is keeping her from dissipating into nothingness like she did at the end of the last , beginning of this episode). Is this what has been happening to Hye-sung, that he has not been possessed but that he has been around ghosts so long that he has absorbed so much dark energy that the humanity in him has been destroyed, is this what will happen to BP if he doesn't let Hyun-ji go.

This drama is so similar to Oh My Ghostess, that I've come to think of them as belonging to a shared universe, I'm already looking forward to a third ghost series next year.

Good theory! I vaguely noticed the mist too.

Since Hyun Ji isn't really a ghost, but is only in a coma (according to popular theory), I guess her "taking" energy from Bong Pal wouldn't be a big problem, and he's not going to end up a hollow-cheeked gibbering wreck like the guy in this ep.

From what I've seen, Hye Sung doesn't seem to receive any extra power from killing humans or ghosts? (although, yikes, that bone-crunching sound gets me every time) But I'm interested to know what part he played in putting Hyun Ji into a coma, and whether it's all part of his plan to hunt down Bong Pal's family.

While I agree that this drama is quite similar to OMG, I couldn't think of them being in the same universe, because form what I remembered Kim Seul Gi can barely touch things in the real world unless she put a lot of energy in it while here... and not to mention that after 3 or so years good ghost will become an evil spirit if they don't move on.

Didn't notice the dark/white smoke before you mentioned it! Good observation! :D

That is what I was wondering, too. Shouldn't the vet's victims become ghosts (even vengeful ghosts) since they were murdered? It would seem like catching their killer would be unfinished business enough to prevent them from passing to the next life.

That bugs me too. It might just be oversight or they didn't get around to putting those extra ghosts into the script, but if they had to invent an in-story reason, then I guess the evil vet can kill people and their ghosts all at once. He can kill people and ghosts separately, so why not?

I think that's going to come into play pretty soon...
Who knows? It might have been her that tripped the hiker so her body could be found? I'm hoping that's what happened. And she can't really haunt the school grounds because our lovely vet is just pure evil, so in a way she too, despite probably being a ghost is still pretty spooked.

YAAY so much sweetness!!
I'm going to sue the producers of this show if I lose all my teeth!!! Why, you ask? Didn't your mom tell you that too much sweetness makes your teeth rot? lol

I don't know why, but I'm so in love with this couple. Rude Bong Pal turned into this super innocent/cute/I-don't-know-what, but I want one too!! And each of Hyun Ji's facial expressions plays my heartstrings like a guitar, if I were a guy I'd be done for!!

Although the love advice were hilarious, I'm a bit displeased that later on my beloved dumb and dumber couple were inconsiderate in regards to Hyun Ji being a presumed ghost. Also I'm growing unsure of the connection between Hyun Ji and our freaky professor... did he really try to kill her.. he is more and more acting like a stalker *shiver*

I may be in the minority but I found this episode to be quite, quite boring. The show's emphasis on spending so much time on romance, and the ghost of the week format is taking away much of the momentum of the plot. I think I could only watch this episode half way but couldn't finish it and I think I'll stick to recaps from now on.

Which begs the question, if you take out the romance scenes, and all the scenes of In rang and his friend, what's left? A very thin plot??

No worries about being minority, I think most of us who like this drama watch it for the fluffy romance and/or the weirdo In Rang duo, some even might like the evil dude, but I certainly don't think many of us feel inspired by the plot :)

I was getting bored with all the ghost of the week storyline. Feel like there's so much plot and depth they could be exploring and getting into, but they have not. But I continued watching cause the two leads are super cute. I will say the next episode picks up a bit on the plot.

Seriously hope that they continue exploring those stories: what happened to hyunji, is she dead or not, BP and HS back story. Stop wasting time on fighting a new ghost every week!!!!!!!

Did anyone else find it oddly hilarious when Hye-Sung picked the kid up and threw him out the window? He was just bam! gone. It was so evil, I know--but I had to look at he guy ike "What? Did you really just do that?"

Besides that, I loved the cute in this episode. Our ghost-human couple is adorable, and I'm totally rooting for her to be in a coma somewhere so they can have another date--with no odd looks.

Ikr? If I was him, I would've at least gotten the kid to write the message before chucking him out the window - what if the kid's phone had some kind of elaborate passcode? That would've been a pretty pickle. Hye Sung is just way too impulsive. :P

I love that Bong Pal is like eff what you think and is really putting himself out there for Hyun-ji! Their date was adorable and even though I was thinking I know people think this man is crazy, I still think it was so sweet.

With the way Hyun-ji keeps disappearing, I'm leaning towards the coma option. I think those times she's actually going back to her body. Maybe she is have brief periods of consciousness?

And Hye-sung is so freaking creepy. I really want to know more about what is going on in that head of his! Anytime he's on screen, I get the chills but they haven't really offered much in terms of story regarding him. I think this episode was the most we have ever learned! What is the thing he's looking for? And why is he stalking Bong Pal so freaking hardcore?

Do you want the short version or the long version?

Short: Yes, I think so.

Long: Well, that depends on your drama watching tastes. LFG is one part hilarious, one part uber-cute, and one part downright terrifying. But they manage to make it work, which I like. And everyone's comedic timing is on point. It's certainly not a heavy show in terms of weighty, tear filled scenes--but there are poignant moments that I enjoy. It's at least worth trying the first two episodes to see if you like the style of the thing. It's a great show for getting your mind off of things, as well. Try it! ^^

Maybe it's because I don't care for the romance, but this was the first episode I got impatient for the plot to move forward. Hearing about Hye Sung's childhood, I wonder if he and Bong Pal were both targeted by the evil spirit but Bong Pal escaped its plans because of the monk and his dad.

Well, it helps that they are both attractive. Being good looking tends to smooth over problems people have with morality.

To be fair, she is pretty hot in that uniform she has. She is legal, so most guys would go for it. She is young, perky, and has no baggage - no downside at all. He is hot too, so there is no mismatch in terms of physical looks.

If there were a mismatch in looks, if he were nerdy and thin, face was not symmetrical........he would be called a creep and a perv.

I read an interview where there were comments made about the 11 year age difference and basically Taec said he was VERY aware of it and keeping everything on the up and up. He said because they got the smooch out of the way early on (and from the camera blocking angle it's likely it was a fake smooch) it hasn't been difficult.

Welp they just completely threw So Yeon under the bus there. Bong Pal already confessed to Hyun Ji so there's no need for So Yeon. She doesn't have anything that would implicate Hye Sung and he would target Hyun Ji first before So Yeon. She can't be used as the dumb and dumber couple's bait for Bong Pal since he now likes Hyun Ji but he's joined the team anyway so they won't be needing her anymore. I hope she either recruits Hyun Joo to the team so she can help stop Hye Sung or she actually adds conflict to Bong Pal and Hyun Ji's relationship because no way she would accept that Bong Pal is dating a ghost. She should like confess to him then he is like no I'm dating someone else then she's like no I'm calling bs.

Speaking of our dumb and dumber couple, they need their own comedy show.

I'm surprised that the store keeper bats an eye on Bong Pal checking out dresses while doesn't bat an eye on floating clothes. Wouldn't Bong Pal have to burn them first for her to try them on?

Just how expensive are exorcisms? I can't imagine how our dumb and dumber couple would go from deep in debt to paid debts and overflowing with money after the sauna exorcism.

There has to be some way Bong Pal and Hyun Ji are connected in the past if she was also murdered by Hye Sung. The book on Hye Sung's desk with Hyun Ji's name and the ID in his drawer implies that Hyun Ji was an actual target of Hye Sung rather than Hyun Joo. The first (accidental) kiss triggered memories. I just hope they don't pull a surprise you're actually long lost separated siblings and you guys are the chosen ones that is the bane of Hye Sung that's why he's trying to kill you both. Well we know the mothers aren't the same. Yeah please don't tell me Bong Pal's dad got into some relationship after the mom's death.

Come on Hye Sung why did you have to kill that other student and pin it on him? That was just cruel. His killings starting from the cat to this guy just have absolutely nothing to do with what he's looking for. They better provide an explanation as to why he killed the cat in the first place. Good thing our detective is smart enough to think that the case isn't over yet.

I'm interested in how Hye Sung killed Hyun Ji. Yes it looks like she got hit by a car in the middle of the road but in a busy street like that, if you hit someone, get out of the car, take their ID, and just walk away, I'm pretty sure people or the CCTVs would have seen you. Maybe he has powers of mind control? Or maybe she got thrown off a building as well into the road. (We never see her actually getting hit by the car. Just that a car is in front of her body.)

Underrated show. The mystery makes the plot go really well. The ghost of the week format is good for some action. There's also the cutesy stuff and our dumb and dumber couple. It's a nice mix of a lot of things. This is arguably as good as Oh My Ghostess but its ratings are just so bad.

Unless of course Hyun-ji is actually dead, and not in a coma like everybody is hoping, in which case So Yeon's role will be as the consolation relationship, because BP can't be with the one he truly loves.

I also wondered about the clothes! When I saw her trying out clothes I was like "doesn't she need someone to burn them before putting them on?". That really made no sense to me. I don't think the clothes floated though.

My heart! My heart! This episode was so sweet yet so painful. Love transcending Life and Death. Wah!

I absolutely LOVE the chemistry between these two and how zuper talented KSH is! I've only ever seen Taecyon in Dream High, and I got a bit worried with people saying this won't work with him.

I hope the scene where they talk about Altair and Vega isn't a premonition of sorts. (Meeting only once a year --)

Because Im also one of the many who want the coma thing I will just DIE OF HEARTACHE if there is no happy ending to this. I CANNOT HANDLE THE PAIN. I AM NOT STRONG ENUF. HUHUHU.

This episode was just uber cute and adorable. So much sweetness it made me all giddy and couldn't focus properly.

I sincerely hope Hyunji is in a coma. No wait i demand Hyunji in a coma and then waking up. Bongpal deserves his happiness now he probably lost his dad. I wont allow it LFG team. Give my otp their happy ending.

Btw I'm so damn curious about all the mysteries going on! Especially Hyunji, since we dont know much about her. I thought by now she'd have her key and id card back but i guess thats not happening just yet. Sighhh the wait is so long and im currently an addicted drama watcher. Need more...

This episode was cute...! Bongpal is so beautiful... like he was SO determined to know what would make a girl happy but then he naturally goes and does what his heart tells him to do and that right there is the perfect formula to win any girl's heart!
I think this ep's Ghost story would mirror Hye sung's story and might give us some answers to his possession/ability. He was sick for a long while, randomly recovered and then stayed away from his mother.. wonder if he stays away from the mother so she wont find out something is wrong?
Hyesung is unnerving... now we have seen that he isnt as flawless as he appears to be and that with some pressure, he can totally show cracks in his good natures facade. He was about to snap at the detective & Seo yeon and Im not sure the detective is buying the whole suicide thing so im looking forward to him being sloppy and getting caught. Hope he doesnt harm anyone tho!

Thanks for the recap, LP!

Loved all the cute scenes of our main couple. BP really outdid himself to make the date special for HJ for the whole day. So sweet and touching to see that. It's very heartwarming to see these two developing a natural friendship and then attraction as you pointed out.

The Altair and Vega allusion was interesting, especially since that today (8/9--lunar calendar 7/7) just happened to be Chinese Valentine's Day when these two get to meet once per year.

The dumb and dumber duo! Hahaha... Love how IR calls CS hyung, but he does the bossing around... No precious gogi for you! That's for HJ! LOL And the step 1-3 advice... ROFL He should warm up first before doing those snaps.

I like how the plot weaves in and out the different genres. The ghosts part is usually scary for me and I can't quite stare at the screen fully while watching at night. Not too sure how they will resolve this week's case.

HS is freaky with his steely stares, and gosh, he just chucked a body out the window as if it were a bag of garbage. So, the only reason he even attended the funeral was to search for a scapegoat. Hope the detectives dig up more dirt on him.

Interesting that BP had evil spirits in him. No wonder Dad was so scared. I wonder if the thing that HS was after would be evidence that Dad had of him... Like the graduation tape that the monk dug out. It clearly shows HS looking pretty much the same even though this was a number of years ago. So, if he is indeed possessed or if he's somehow turned evil when consumed with dark spirits himself, that could explain his seemingly eternal youth. I know the monk can stay safe.

one continuation i'm a little curious about: Hyeon Ji's reflection. She can see herself when she's looking in the mirror? But not in a store shop. I'm also a little curious what happens to food when she eats it. i'm guessing it remains untouched but does Bongpal throw it out after? What a waste of food. I think it'd be cute if they showed him burning all the clothes he bought for her or other things that kinda highlight their different relationship.

This might be answered later on but I just have to ask, how do none of the people see floating utensils, food and food disappearing midair (after Hyuji eats them). I just feel like alot of people are staring, so at least one person should be confused by these events that definitely suggest something paranormal.
