Sure, why not, bring it on.
Okay, not going to lie, I was really leery about this show, or… actually I had no idea about the show itself, I was leery about the idea of Saint, BL king extraordinaire, starring in anything other than the newest BL. Would he be good in it? Would I want to see it? Would I spend the whole time wishing it was a BL? Well, the first teaser is out, and let me tell you, if this show would come out tomorrow, I’d happily throw all my weekend plans aside* and sit there to binge the whole thing.
Yes, I’m that excited about it.
It could be that I’m tired, that it’s been a long week, that I’ve spent the last five hours editing the next podcast (If you’re wondering where last week’s was, SaraG was kind enough to guest AND THE AUDIO WAS EATEN. Sigh. Sorry SaraG, thanks for trying?) which are the BL and Bubbles Awards with Alix. A podcast where Saint comes up many, many times, but I caught this teaser on a break and I’ve been a bit obsessed with it since.
Okay, this teaser literally tells us nothing except Saint is in this, he looks amazing, and HE’S KISSING A GIRL–and I don’t mind it! Oh, and it that it starts this month. This was definitely enough to make me sad that there wasn’t more to it. Luckily, Youtube didn’t let me down and the very next video it suggested was a music video for the series. Now I was hesitant to watch this as sometimes these videos give away everything, or are fan-made and not great. I decided to watch it as this one was put out by the production company and I realized my desire to know more wasn’t put off by the fact that I could be spoiling the whole show. Who cares, its Saint! (It’s here I realize I think I like Saint a lot more than I realized. I’m waaaaay too excited about this show I know nothing about to be normal, right?)
Anyway, here’s the music video, I’d say it spoils too much but 1) that would be a lie as it just makes me want to watch the show more and 2) even if it does show a lot of scenes, it’s not like they are in order or I know anything about the plot, so how can it actually spoil anything?
The show is called, Let’s Fight Ghost! and is about a ghost (the girl) and a guy who can see ghosts (surprise! Its Saint!), he starts, I don’t know, ghost hunting? He definitely can touch ghosts and they can touch him (handy for this relationship) and he meets and is intrigued by her then…something-something… they end up fighting ghosts together, fall in love, he gets her a pretty dress then… sadness? I’m guessing she lets go of him for his own good? This is all me just guessing, I have no idea but I’ll say, yep, this show is probably #1 with a bullet on shows I want to watch.
Here’s the full synopsis:
A cohabitation comedy about a ghost of a high school girl who has been dead for 5 years and an exorcist college boy with the ability to see and hear ghosts. What he’s discovered over the years is that he can touch them and fight them off, so when he’s in need of a part-time job and can’t find one that pays well enough, he starts putting ads online as an exorcist for hire. His ad: “Will face off with your ghosts. Chances of winning: virgin ghosts 80%, bachelor ghosts 40%, child ghosts 97%, the rest 50%.” One night he goes out on the job and faces off with a schoolgirl ghost, and during the fight, they accidentally kiss and sparks fly.”
Accidental kisses with a ghost? Woot-Woot! Sign me up.
Seriously, though I love Saint in the shows I’ve seen him in (Love By Chance and Why R U?) I was wondering how he’d do in a hetro-drama, and if this teaser and music video filled with show clips are any indication, he’s pulling this off really well. Actually, I hate to say it as it might have my BL fan card stripped from me, but it almost looks like he’s even better in this show. (Shhh… you didn’t hear that from me.)
I know I’m tired. I know my brain is fried. But I have a feeling I’m going to be just as excited about this show tomorrow as I am now. And the fact that, at least on Mydramalist, it’s saying Let’s Fight Ghost is going to be on Netflix? Well, that’s just icing on the proverbial awesome cake.
Now I want cake too. Saint. And cake. An awesome pairing don’t you think?
* Hahahah having weekend plans, remember those days?
