  • Episodes: 32

  • Choi Daniel (Lee Da Il)
  • Park Eun Bin (Jung Yeo Wool)
  • Lee Ji Ah (Sun Woo Hye)


Choi Daniel (Lee Da Il) is a detective who takes on the job he finds it more suitable for him.  One time he took a job which led to his own death.  But he also learned how his mother has died from the incident.  Now he is a wandering soul, solving the mysteries behind his mother’s murder and Park Eun Bin’s sister death.


As for me, I liked the mysteries and the real murderer true identity.  The story is quite good in its own way.  It is worth watching.

Park Eun Bin (Jung Yeo Wool) who is doing a lead role in this drama is the only person who can see Choi Daniel (Lee Da Il) as he became a ghost.  These two works together to find the mysteries about the death of their beloved one.

The Lee Ji Ah (Sun Woo Hye) who acts as a ghost which kills all the people who she finds a threat to her.  I have seen her differently in My Ahjussi as a cheating wife.  Now she is totally different from the previous dramas.  I kind of hate her in all the drama she starred.  As for Choi Daniel he has done a good job in this drama.  I liked his character in jugglers.

By the inclusion of a few other characters such as Lee Joo Young, Kim Won Hae, and Lee Jae Kyung the story is complete.

If you ask me is this drama worth watching, I will definitely recommend to those who like mysteries.  I am giving a rating of 8.5 for this drama.

  1. Ooh I haven’t seen a KDrama with a ghost type story yet! This sounds pretty cool. I tend to really like detective stories, so it seems to take two things I like and combine them. 🙂
