Watch Bring It On, Ghost
- 1 Season
Bring It On, Ghost is a South Korean television drama that premiered on tvN in 2016. It is a supernatural comedy series starring Taecyeon, Kim So-hyun, and Lee Da-wit. The show revolves around Park Bong-pal (Taecyeon), a young man who can see and communicate with ghosts. He earns money by exorcising evil spirits from haunted buildings. Bong-pal seems to be indifferent to his ability and delivers a cold and aloof demeanor. Then he meets Kim Hyun-ji (Kim So-hyun), a high school student who died under mysterious circumstances. Hyun-ji is a ghost who has lost her memory and asks for Bong-Pal's help. Initially, Bong-pal does not want to help, but gradually, he develops a soft spot for Hyun-ji and decides to assist her. In the process, the unlikely duo work together to help other spirits who are trapped in this world due to unfinished business. The show also highlights the journey of Hyun-ji who tries to uncover the truth behind her premature death. As the story progresses, it is revealed that she was murdered, and the culprit is still at large. Hyun-ji, with Bong-Pal's aid, sets out to investigate and bring the killer to justice. The series' comedic elements come from the contrast between the two main characters. Bong-Pal, being indifferent to his ability, has difficulty interacting with people and often struggles to articulate his feelings. On the other hand, Hyun-ji is a bubbly, curious ghost who has an unquenchable thirst for life despite being dead. The two contrasting personalities add a layer of humor to the plot, making it an amusing watch. Another character, who adds a lot of charm and humor to the show, is the exorcist monk, Myung Chul (Lee Da-wit). Myung Chul is a recurring character who constantly tries to persuade Bong-pal to train under him to refine his skills as an exorcist. Though initially hesitant, Bong-pal eventually agrees. One aspect of the show that sets it apart is its use of special effects. As Bong-pal exorcises demons and spirits, the show utilizes vivid and imaginative effects, making the sequences visually impressive. These effects make the process of exorcism a lot more dynamic, unlike other shows that rely solely on dialogue. The show's soundtrack also aids in enhancing the viewing experience by adding a layer of emotional depth. The songs played during key moments, such as flashbacks, montages, or climactic scenes, effectively convey the characters' feelings, making the moments more impactful. Bring It On, Ghost is an entertaining and engaging show that offers the perfect blend of comedy, suspense, and drama. It is a unique concept that explores the world of ghosts and demons, making it a refreshing watch. With a talented cast, an engaging plot, and impressive effects, this show is definitely worth a watch.
