Synopsis: Na Bong-sun (Park Bo-young) has an extremely timid personality and low self-esteem, doesn't have any close friends, and is constantly getting reprimanded at her job as an assistant chef at Sun Restaurant. She also occasionally sees ghosts, thanks to a shaman grandmother (Lee Jung-eun). One day, Bong-sun gets possessed by a lustful virgin ghost named Shin Soon-ae (Kim Seul-gie). To make up for the lack of romance in her short life and believing that only by losing her virginity will she be able to "resolve her grudge" and move on to the afterlife, Soon-ae is determined to seduce as many men as she can by possessing various women, and she finds the perfect vessel in Bong-sun.

What I have to say: This turned out to be more touching and heart-warming than I expected. The way they set up the mystery around the brother-in-law made it more gripping and a tad bit scary. It was the kind of drama that made me want to know what would happen next. Also, unlike some K-Dramas out there, the ending was satisfying because they let the characters come somewhat full circle. I appreciated that. If you like ghost themes, murder mysteries and romance, this one is a good one to watch.

Soju (1) | It had me coming back for more, but left me with a hangover. Worth it in the moment, but slight regret the next day.
Kimbap (2) | It moved well and often left me wondering what would happen in the next episode, but it wasn't as fulfilling as it had the potential to be.
Bibimbap (3) | I lost a lot of sleep because they knew how to end each episode with a cliffhanger! Lots of harmonious ingredients making this one a win!
Fanatic (4) | An amazing drama that was very well told and nearly every single episode ended with a major cliffhanger making you scream for more! I'm an absolute fan!
(I only put on here the dramas I actually recommend because I think it's really good. Even a soju rating means it was good and satisfying. A fanatic rating just means it blew me away and was near perfection. There are many dramas I've seen that I don't have on my recommendation list.)
