Ghostess With the Mostess

Casting News


Word has been rumbling on the street on the new drama Oh My Ghostess. Word of which I’ve been studiously trying to ignore for some reason. Is it because I already had too many dramas on my plate? Nope. That can’t be it. While I may have a lot of dramas I think I’m simulcasting, in reality I’m only doing like four of them and most, if not all, of those will be done by the time Oh My Ghostess begins. 

Is it the premise? That’s probably it. The idea of a hapless heroine being possessed by the spirit of a lusty virgin ghost? Hrm, that’s awkward and leaves me a little cold. Does the heroine know she’s been taken over? Is she just imbued with the spirit of the… spirit? If that’s the case, then who falls in love with them? Will the love triangle be between the hapless heroine, the chef, and the lusty ghost?

oh my ghostess

The one thing which had me more interested was the fact that the hero is a cranky, abrasive chef. You know who I love for a hero? Cranky, abrasive chefs. (See my love of the drama Pasta and… well that’s it, but since it’s my favorite drama, it should get extra points.)

Then, today I realized that the cast is pretty stellar. Park Bo Young was pretty much the best thing that happened to Hot Young Bloods (or Hot Blooded Youth), and I’ve been looking for her to be in something else that I wanted to watch. Then Kim Seul Gi as the virgin ghost sounds awesome. While she is only a character actress, she is pretty much the best thing about a lot of the dramas she’s been in. Is it just me, or do you think its past time for her to get her own lead role? You can’t tell me that a drama which cast her in the lead would not be quirky, hilarious, and all over amazing?

Then the last cast that I’m excited for? My hero chef. I have had a heart on for Jo Jung Suk since his role in King2Hearts. I liked him so much I almost thought about watching You’re the Best Lee Soon Shin. As most of his roles have been warm, caring, upright guys, I wonder if he can pull off, and be believable as, the cranky, abrasive chef. Let’s keep our fingers crossed.

All in all, while I’m not edge of my seat excited about this, at least it is now on the radar. tvN is usually good for a fun time.

So how about you? Are you excited for this drama?

    This could be a really great drama, or a shittastically let-me-bash-my-head-against-the-nearest-brick-wall kind of bad. I swear, premises and trailers and all the other paraphernalia that comes out before a drama starts airing are never to be trusted because you never know quite how the direction is going to go.

    Personally I’m intrigued with the premise, but I’m also EXTRA happy that Kim Seul Gi is going to be in the drama, and I swear if someone doesn’t start a petition to get her a lead role I’m gonna kick a car. I also really enjoyed Hot Young Bloods, and the lead actress in that was pretty great so this does have enough fan-bait for me to want to give it a shot. I’m less inclined about the grumpy-face Chef, because Pasta murdered my happiness by ep 2 and I was done. (Dodges behind couch to avoid the your glare, LOL.)

    (Also bless the hell out of that “Will the love triangle be between the hapless heroine, the chef and the lusty ghost?” quote! It’s like, if that isn’t the tag line for a contemporary romance novel in the vain of Elizabeth Beverly or Jennifer Cruise, then pfft it so is.)

        YAY!! I’m liked! I’m liked! *Jumps up and down like an over-exuberant puppy about to pee the carpet.*

        And heck yeah a Jennifer Cruise reference! Her book Bet Me is still waiting for my attention because ALL of Romance-land keeps insisting it’s the best ever.

          You haven’t read BET ME? And you call yourself a romance novel fan? I’m sorry ma’am, but that just ain’t fittin’, My favorites are Bet Me, Faking It, and Agnes and the Hitman (Which I got her to actually sign for me!)

            I KNOW I KNOW I KNOW! I’m the worst human, ever. *Whimpers!* But, hey, I blame kdrama! I used to read 3+ books a week until I discovered Asian dramas…now I’m lucky if I get on a month in, I swear. Between watching kdramas and writing scripts for my YouTube channel about kdramas and filming and editing footage for my YouTube channel about kdramas JUST OH MY GOD ALL ABOUT KDRAMAS I SWEAR! hahah.

            I don’t think I’ve heard of Agnes and the Hitman but I swear that title is GLORIOUS! Also you got to met her? DAMMIT I DIDN’T THINK I COULD LIKE YOU ANY HARDER THAN I DO! 🙂

    I just finished Episode 5 and I am loving this drama. It’s way quirky… Funny, sweet and a little creepy at times. And I have no clue what is going to happen. And Jo Jung Suk is the perfect mix of cranky and lovable. He’s very quickly stealing my heart as a new Bias. 🙂
