This was one of the best dramas of 2013. After a flop show by the Hong Sisters in Big they made a wonderful comeback through Master’s Sun.
Comedy, Romance, Fantasy
Tae Gong Shil, fondly called Taeyang played by Gong Hyo Jin started seeing ghosts after a road accident. As the usual ghost-seeing characters she is pestered by ghosts asking her to fulfill their wishes. On one such detour to help a grandma ghost she meets our hero Joo Joong Won a.k.a Joogun played by So Ji Sub. He is the CEO of Kingdom Group but like our usual drama heroes is cold-hearted but he has this strange power that whenever our heroine touches him the ghosts around her vanish. Hence she decides to stick to him to escape from the pestering ghosts. Together they deal with many ghosts, solve their problems and help them rest in peace. Joong Won is dealing with a trauma due to a kidnapping incident during his school days. The culprit behind this kidnapping took a diamond necklace as a ransom and Joong Won is determined to get it back with the help of Taeyang . Does he solve the mystery behind his kidnapping 15 years back and in the process how he falls in love with our heroine is what this story tells.
The Plus Factor:
I liked the ghost of the week concept. It was like story within the main story. Short but meaningful. Joogun’s character development was also great. Being the one with tightly shut heart, the slow process of opening his heart to a clumsy girl like Taeyang was heart-warming. I was sort of cheering for him from day one. The supporting role Tae Yi Ryung played by Kim Yoo Ri was a cute character. The usual supporting roles tend to disrupt the relationship between the leads but she was trying to get them together though for her own selfish reasons it was good to see a difference for once. The male supporting role played by Seo In Guk too was good to see. As a big fan of him since Reply 1997 days was great to see him play a handsome security chief. And about the OST I personally loved all the songs. Most favourite would be Yoon Mirae’s Touch Love. Touch love is basically the OST of the year. Also loved Last One by Yoomi.
The Minus Factor:
In the last few episodes we went on a circle and few drama clichés like the heroine going abroad and then coming back. Other than that it was perfect
A minus one for the unnecessary cliche.
