‘Revenant’ Episode 1: Kim Tae Ri Gets Possessed By Evil Ghost

The long wait is over for Kim Tae Ri and Oh Jung Se's fans as the highly awaited horror occult drama "Revenant" has finally premiered.

In its pilot episode, Kim Tae Ri and Oh Jung Se's lives get entangled due to an eerie incident. Read to know more.

Goo San Young Gets Possessed

"Revenant" episode 1  begins with the tangled lives of Goo San Young (Kim Tae Ri) and Yeom Hae Sang (Oh Jung Se).

Goo San Young lives a tough life and being a victim of a voice phishing scam is the nail on the coffin. Due to her frustrations, she plans to take her own life.

When she stands on the bridge, a folklore professor named Yeom Hae Sang notices a dark shadow from under the bridge, a ghost who plans to possess a body for its resurrection.

Unfortunately, he didn't catch the evil entity as it vanished like a bubble. Meanwhile, Goo San Young wakes up feeling faint and dizzy.

Yeom Hae Sang Convinces Goo San Young

Things get worse when Goo San Young learns about his father's death. She receives a keepsafe from her grandmother, a box that contains a voice of a girl inside.

Her mother warns her not to take anything from her grandmother and both of them rush home. Goo Sang Young bumps into Yeom Hae Sang on their way out.

The folklore professor then realizes that the young woman has been possessed by the ghost under the bridge.

When they meet the following day at school, Yeom Hae Sang tells Goo San Young about the possessed. Unfortunately, the latter doesn't believe in any of that.

Goo San Young Gets Involved In Murder

At home, two investigators look for Goo San Young who's involved in her scammer's sudden demise.

The detective ruled the death by suicide but the autopsy report shows that Goo San Young's fingerprints had been found in the crime scene as well as the victim's body.

She then runs to Yeom Hae Sang for help. It turns out that the ghost who possessed her was the same ghost that killed his mother, and has now begun its attack.

Goo San Young's Another Attack

Baek Se Mi (Yang Hye Ji), Goo San Young's friend, moves into her new house which had been deemed haunted.

When they realize that some middle school students were taking pictures of them from outside the house, Goo San Young doesn't waste time and catches them.

However, she fails and on their way back, they see the teenager dead on the road. Goo San Young believes that it is because of her. Recalling what Yeom Hae Sang had said to her, she contacts him once again for help.

Who Possessed Goo San Young?

At the end of the episode, Yeom Hae Sang learns that there's another ghost besides the one who possessed Goo San Young.

He also processes the documents related to the teenager, and discovers that the three boys had bullied a transferee into taking his own life.

Meanwhile, Goo San Young drives to one of the student's houses. When she enters the house that was open, she sees a reflection in the mirror; a badly wounded teenager .

ghost in revenant kdrama

Our unlikely pair is roped in by more murders and ghostly shenanigans that might just shed light on their own ghost predicament. With no telling how long our heroine can maintain control, they dive headlong into their supernatural investigation. Their quest for answers leads them to the past and a tragic event with far-reaching consequences.


Kim Tae-ri Oh Jung-se Revenant: Episodes 3-4

We open on a young man scribbling furiously while hyperventilating and repeating, “Die!” as one does. Heels clack down the hall. There’s a loud knock on the door. He opens it (uh oh), and we see a pair of red high heels. The young man falls to the ground, seeming to choke.

He’s merely one of several students to die recently. There have been three suicides in the past week, all seniors at the same university. Rumors around campus say that each death was preceded by the sound of high heels and knocking.

Mun-chun and Hong-sae investigate and discover all three students had a friend in common, a student named Tae-young who suspiciously disappeared after the deaths. CCTV footage from the apartment buildings show a woman wearing red high heels (so not a ghost, it would seem) that the landlord identifies as Tae-young. Oddly, she visited each of the three students weekly on a regular schedule. However, she doesn’t appear on any of the neighborhood CCTV footage outside the buildings.

ghost in revenant kdrama

Coincidentally (or maybe not), these deaths happened in the area that used to be Jangjin-ri, the place Hae-sang and San-young discovered in Gang-mo’s notes. They make a trip there and start canvassing the elderly residents, trying to find someone who’s been there long enough to help them. They luck out and find an elderly man who tells them about the sacred tree on their makeshift map. It’s known as Dukdali Tree after the old practice of childhood burial; children were typically either buried in jars in remote areas without a headstone or their bodies were hung from trees (yeesh). The tree was also known as the Suicide Tree after many people hung themselves there.

The elderly man also knew Gang-mo who used to visit his younger brother who has since died. He gives Hae-sang and San-young his great-niece’s address, so they make a trip to her dorm… just as the high-heeled woman/ghost visits. The woman/ghost disappears, but they do run into Mun-chun and Hong-sae. After Hae-sang sees a ghost tree with three corpses and an empty noose, he warns Mun-chun there will be another victim.

For Hae-sang, it’s obvious they should now chase after this suicide ghost, but San-young has a life outside of ghost hunting. One that she’s had to put on hold to focus on ridding herself of the evil spirit that’s attached itself to her. San-young couldn’t take the exam she’d been preparing for with Se-mi and has been avoiding her mom since she can’t tell her what’s going on.

Her mom further adds to her stress after she gets a call from the police about San-young’s grandmother’s death. San-young calms her down by saying she wasn’t involved with her grandmother, but then it’s San-young’s turn to panic. Her mom says her grandmother left her an inheritance, and given their money troubles, she encourages San-young to accept it. San-young freaks out when she then clearly hears the voice of the ghost possessing her order, “Accept it.”

Kim Tae-ri Oh Jung-se Revenant: Episodes 3-4

While Hae-sang focuses on identifying and locating the Dukdali Tree, San-young tries to find Tae-young, hoping for answers about her own possession. No one has been able to reach her, and one of her coworkers seems way too interested, especially when San-young mentions Tae-young’s family. He asks for her great-uncle’s contact info, supposedly to send Tae-young’s things she left behind, and San-young hands the address over with way too little suspicion.

Things take an odder turn when the man then introduces San-young to his boss after overhearing her on a phone call with her landlady. The boss offers to help her with money. Thankfully, San-young is suspicious of that and leaves without taking him up on it. He sends her away with a fish (even as the owner of an aquarium shop, that’s just bizarre) and encourages her to return.

Kim Tae-ri Oh Jung-se Revenant: Episodes 3-4

Everyone’s investigations lead to the same place – Tae-young’s family’s property. Hae-sang determines Tae-young is the ghost’s next target, while the police learn from the great-aunt that Tae-young went into hiding because debt collectors were after her. When San-young returns to the aquarium shop, she finds debt collection contracts and discovers it’s a front for an illegal loan shark business. On her way out, she sees a reflection of the Dukdali Tree in her mirror. (Tae-young threw pieces of a torn family photo with a ghost inside, according to Hae-sang, in an aquarium to keep the moneylenders from coming after her family.)

The boss catches San-young on her way out, but San-young somehow escapes and calls Hae-sang to check on Tae-young’s family. Hae-sang is already there, and a scream leads him to the shed where one of the moneylenders, dressed in a woman’s outfit and red high heels, attacks Tae-young. Everyone, including the police, arrive just in time to arrest the man and save Tae-young. So it seems the deaths were a human-ghost collaboration (even if unintentional) with the moneylenders terrorizing students a suicide ghost then latched onto.

But it’s not over yet. Hae-sang learns that the moneylenders gave a fish to each of the victims, with San-young being the most recent fish-receiver. This might be one time the possession comes in handy because Hae-sang finds San-young on the bridge unaffected, tossing the fishbowl into the river.

ghost in revenant kdrama

Not San-young turns to him with a chilling smile and greets him, “It’s been a long time.” Hae-sang rattles the ghost when he shows her the hair accessory and recalls it was gifted to young girls as a talisman for health and safety. As the ghost retreats, San-young repeats the numbers “21” and “176.” Then, San-young returns to herself, frightened and confused. She’s been getting worse, feeling less like herself and having more blackouts. Hae-sang tries to comfort her, but the situation is bleak.

At least one of their problems is an easy fix (if you’re rich, that is) – Hae-sang lends San-young the money she needs to keep their house, although he vastly misjudges how poor they are and gifts her 45 million won too much, ha. She’s reluctant to accept, but he tells her their weaknesses can be targeted by ghosts: she needs to pay her debts, while he gets rid of all his alcohol.

They next investigate the numbers the ghost repeated, starting at Gang-mo’s office. Their search yields nada; however, San-young does find out something interesting in the room her parents used to share at her grandmother’s place. There, she spots an old calendar with a due date for a baby… when she was already five years old. Once again, it looks like her mom’s keeping family secrets.

Kim Tae-ri Oh Jung-se Revenant: Episodes 3-4

Tae-young provides them with a clue, at least, when she recounts a visit between Gang-mo and her grandfather the previous year. He’d been asking after Lee Mok-dan, a village girl who went missing in 1958. And yes, it’s the same girl with the hair accessory who was killed by the shaman. After painstakingly going through old newspaper articles, San-young and Hae-sang find an article about Mok-dan being killed as part of a yeommae ritual which, in its most gruesome form, was done by starving and killing a child to create a vengeful juvenile ghost. That’s when San-young realizes the numbers are page numbers in her father’s book on this topic.

Since Baekchagol Village is mentioned on those pages, they take another road trip. The elders are happy to see Hae-sang again – he did research there years ago – but awkward Hae-sang is happy to let San-young steer the conversation and make small talk with the villagers. And here San-young unearths yet another of her mother’s lies: Baekchagol is her hometown, not Seoul as she’d always claimed.

There’s no time to dwell on familial revelations, though, since wandering ghosts crash the party. After elder dies suddenly, Hae-sang and San-young work to protect the others. The village is known for its straw doll festival that’s meant to ward off these wandering ghosts, but someone sabotaged it this year.

Kim Tae-ri Oh Jung-se Revenant: Episodes 3-4

An elderly, ghost-seeing resident couldn’t bear to send off her daughter who is now a wandering ghost, so she burned all the straw dolls that could’ve protected the village. San-young manages to save one elderly woman who is pushed in front of a Truck of Doom by a ghost, but then she’s followed by several wandering ghosts. We end as San-young sees her ghost father in the reflection of a store window.

Since these wandering ghosts don’t seem capable of conversation, I don’t expect San-young will be able to get much out of her father. But it would certainly be helpful if he could nudge her in the right direction or provide some info on why she’s involved in all this. Between his abandonment and her mother’s lies and bad decisions, poor San-young has really had to fend for herself. It’s not great when the only person you can trust is a ghost-obsessed stranger you just met.

I do wish we spent less time with the police investigation since I find that the least interesting aspect of the drama. Dramaland is overflowing with criminal investigations, so I’d much rather spend the time on the ghostly bits. We did confirm this week that our ghost is that little girl who was tragically murdered (when in doubt, it’s always a little girl ghost). Now that they know the ghost’s identity, maybe they’ll be able to make some headway on what she wants and how to get rid of her.

Watching this is like reading a mystery novel with clues dropping in perfect timing so we, the viewer, don't feel like too stupid to follow the plot or the characters don't act like they are too smart to be catched up. And how they merge the case series format to the continuous plot line flawlessly is just good, I don't feel the transition jarring. I love this. (Just forget Jiri san, Kim Eun-hee might be in temporary hiking mood when she wrote that).

' src=

July 3, 2023 at 3:26 AM

I agree. Its smart writing for writernim to do so. I forgot the Jirisan drama already. It never happened. Its a name of a mountain in SK and that is all.

' src=

July 3, 2023 at 4:32 AM

@pohonphee , I haven't watched Jiri san. But I know Signal (and absolutely LOVE the intelligence of the writing - even though I can recognise the inspiration from Frequency , the final result has definitely surpassed the original inspo).

Can I take that Jiri san is best to be avoided?

July 3, 2023 at 4:41 AM

I also LOVE Signal, my top 10 dramas all the time ha ha ha. If you don't watch Jirisan, you will miss nothing. Watch Kingdom instead if you haven't already.

' src=


July 3, 2023 at 5:57 pm.

This perfectly encapsulates my thoughts!

' src=

July 3, 2023 at 1:17 AM

I am a scaredy cat to watch the drama but the recaps keep me intrigued

July 3, 2023 at 3:23 AM

I didnt want to watch this initially due to the theme. But I did enjoy The Guest and The Curse so I figured why not. Now I can't wait for the next episodes to drop.

July 3, 2023 at 3:55 AM

Thank you @quirkycase for the rapid recap!

I am in love with the plot. But I also have so many open questions — which, I'm sure, is normal so early in the story.

I remember suggesting that the evil spirit uses the host body as a means to an end, whether the host provides them the energy to kill or the network to choose their next victim from. We were also clearly shown in the first 2 episodes the spirit in San-young's bedroom mirror lifting from her body in her shape, while she was still sleeping on the desk. So, my understanding at the time was that the spirit can reproduce the image of someone else's body, down to the fingerprints. We somehow still saw San-young sleeping on her desk, so I imagined there would have been 2 San-youngs during the times the spirit was actively "suiciding" different victims.

Now, comes the start of episode 4, and the spirit waits until she meets Hae-sang on the bridge to give him her most creepy smile and cryptic clue before disappearing and leaving a very confused San-young in her place. Now this is interesting because we were truly left to believe that the spirit can copy any shape they want while the real body is elsewhere...

This leaves me just as confused as San-young, who dutifully proceeded to spend the next day blurting out a series of numbers. Girl, use your phone to make a note of it! Also, regarding numbers, as an avid escape room player (I don't believe in having a social life, so any free time I get I pay people to lock me in a room) the first thought that popped into my mind was: Page numbers! Obviously, neither of the two protagonists is an escape room adept so it took them unnecessarily long to figure it out. Aside from the slow realisation of what those numbers could have been, I'd like to comment on the following:

How self-aware is that spirit that she went on to even read about her own origin story? How did the spirit get to read the book? Is there a ghost library we don't know about?

I am also intrigued by the ghost's relationship with San-young. While there may be elements of being vengeful and killing out of spite or to protect her own identity (I strongly suspect the spirit took Gang-mo because he was getting closer to finding who she was) , she is also invested enough in her own host to want to protect her. She intentionally went back to the fish shop to terrorise the owner (or so it looks to me).

This brings me to my next point: Did Dad ever intended to give San-young the hair accessory or was it the ghost using her powers to possess Grandma’ s image and reach San-young? And here comes my following point (it's a never ending drawer-opening mind game, each thought opens a new drawer of options): If Dad wanted San-young to have the hair accessory, was it because he thought she could stop the spirit, and in which case, how is it linked to the spirit? (did her maternal side of the family kill that girl back in...

July 3, 2023 at 3:56 AM

... (did her maternal side of the family kill that girl back in 1958?) If Dad never wanted San-young to have the accessory, then how did he know the ghost would latch on his daughter? This would reinforce the connection between the Gu family and the ghost, or between Mom's family and the ghost.

Also, anyone else want to reach through the screen, grab Mom by the shoulders, shake her violently, and shout at her face until she stops being a pain? She is one consistently annoying character through the lies (an army of those, and it is becoming increasingly worrying because she doesn't seem to have any social connection at all like someone who desperately tried to cut ties with her past ), through her constant need to be parented by her own daughter (hello, you're the parent in the relationship), through her utter refusal to discuss anything about Gang-mo (again, as a parent, you can't make the decision for your child to erase the other parent). She may be holding the key to some mysteries of the story, and I am all for stealing that key and slapping her in the face in the process. If we could at least slap her a little until she reveals more about baby number 2 and why she left Dad, that’d be fantastic…

Finally, this is only episode 4 and we have been given a potential name for everyone’s favourite creepy suicide ghost, Lee Mok-dan. Is the ghost Mok-dan? This is so early in the story that it would seem odd to already reveal her name. Unless she wants to be found out because she’s hiding a much bigger and much more interesting secret and we will need all the remaining episodes to uncover it? She was keen on burning her hair accessory in front of young Hae-sang, so wanting to be found out would seem strange. But then Hae-sang’s mom knew about it, dug up the accessory and then proceeded to scare and scar her son for the rest of life (yes, he let the ghost in, but his mom’s random actions and change of mood had already started to terrorise him by that point)

' src=

July 3, 2023 at 4:10 AM

So many good questions and theories. It didn't occur to me that the ghost could reproduce a physical body down to the fingerprints, unlike other ghosts it seems.

It feels like the show is doling out puzzle pieces from different times and characters. If it's a good show, it'll provide the remaining puzzle pieces and have them fit neatly.

' src=

July 3, 2023 at 12:02 PM

i genuinely think ghost wants an out and she is not getting that because a 3rd party is somehow controlling and restraining it in this world.. question is who is the 3rd party and i would offer our ML"s rich grandmother and their origins.

Pretty sure shaman was used to create these/this ghost.. ghost does rich family's bidding.. by passing it on to people who will kill the people rich family wants killed.. something like that

Ghost is strong.. so it is reasonable that no ghost would want to hurt its host and yet the ghost did abandon its host - ML's mom and killed her (by posessing ML)

' src=

July 3, 2023 at 1:13 PM

I've read that this particular ritual was mostly used this way: shaman visits places and orders ghost to curse locals into plague/epidemic illness, then "miraculously" cures poor folks from it - for a nice fee ofc. Perfect scheme, I must say.

Is it the little girl ghost? I thought it was the shaman who murdered her.

July 3, 2023 at 4:25 AM

Oh interesting. @kafiyah-bello I didn't consider this could be the the ghost of the shaman. I thought it was the ghost of the little girl, potentially Lee Mok-dan, because of the hair in her shadow and the connection with the hair accessory. But, fair point, it could be the shaman craving punishment or redemption in the afterlife, perhaps...

July 3, 2023 at 12:03 PM

why would shaman care if someone was not paying her to create ghosts?

Kafiyah Bello

July 3, 2023 at 12:17 pm.

She was crazy and an evil woman, my assumption is that she died badly and decided to finish her evil deeds after death and the little girl was the catalyst.

July 3, 2023 at 4:30 AM

It might be. But it might be a red herring as it feels rather early on in the show to know the girl and her name (which the prof keeps telling us is his goal). And, if the ghost is giving the clue (book numbers) to find the girl maybe it's a trick. Shaman is a good guess if so.

July 3, 2023 at 12:05 PM

it is shaman or..

what if the ghost wants them to find the name so her miseries can end.. maybe that's the whole point.. ghost isn't the real evil here

Why is this show called REVERANT.. what are we revering.. there has to be a rich family behind this

July 3, 2023 at 12:14 PM

It is called reveNant, which is different, it means one that returns after death or long absence.

July 5, 2023 at 10:29 AM

lol.. i thought it was reverant

July 3, 2023 at 12:15 PM

Wait? Is it not called revenant? As in someone who returns? No?

The rich family connection is definitely worth exploring, and I suspect you’re onto something.

i got it wrong.. i always thought it is reverant and was wondering how it even fits

July 3, 2023 at 8:50 AM

I thought so too. There was a name of the shaman in the notebook. That may be the real reason the ghost followed him and killed him. Then got rid of San Yeong'sgrandma to tie loose ends.

July 3, 2023 at 4:39 AM

I found the 3rd episode a bit confusing and not as engaging. But I forgave it in the end. I was thinking to myself, ha, they forgot to show how the FL got away from the loan shark. Gotcha. And a few minutes later, such a delicious, disconcerting explanation. Well played. I also liked the village interlude, such interesting customs (and reality of an urbanizing, aging population).

I agree the policemen's investigation isn't as exciting in these two episodes, but I sure am intrigued by the connection between the FL and the young policeman. I know this ain't no Happinness , nor do I want it to be, but I hope they explore it more.

Who is the loved one the prof lost and keeps close? It'll be interesting to see how the FL sees that student ghost. Probably in all his awful ghostliness unlike the prof (just as the old village woman saw her daughter).

July 3, 2023 at 4:48 AM

I think the police investigation and the demon hunting will meet at the end, complete each other, not just a side plot.

July 3, 2023 at 5:15 AM

I completely agree. I think the police investigation serves a different purpose. Mun-chun has already made it clear that, not only he is open to the idea of ghosts, but he also understands that the key to ghost hunting may reside in old records. I see him as a bridge connecting the official and unofficial investigations.

Hong-sae appears to be someone who, while he doesn't show any interest in paranormal activities, has learned the ability to be open-minded enough to not jump to conclusions. In another drama and in the hands of another writer, the police would have arrested San-young multiple times already. He seems to be more curious about her than suspicious of her.

So, I too hope our four investigators will get to meet and cooperate more openly towards the end.

On a complete different note, what's the deal with Hae-sang's assistant? I briefly wondered if he was a ghost because he always wears the same very noticeable outfit.

July 3, 2023 at 5:22 AM

We've all been speculating he's a ghost. And when the prof said seeing ghosts wasn't always bad as you get to see loved ones, it made me wonder if the student is someone he cared for and lost. (Or it could be the show signaling the FL will see her father a bit later in the episode as did the old village women.)

July 3, 2023 at 6:10 AM

I'm getting Sixth Sense vibe from the assistant. But my vibometre is rarely accurate.

July 3, 2023 at 9:25 AM

Assistant is definitely a ghost, I think he is a high school ghost, he wears a uniform.

July 3, 2023 at 12:08 PM

What assistant?? when did we see an assitant

July 3, 2023 at 12:12 PM

Hae-sang’s assistant

July 3, 2023 at 6:00 PM

I had a feeling that it was going to be a solid reveal for how San-yeong escaped the loan shark (it was, I enjoyed that reveal) but I was shocked that it was the two cops who found out about it. I really thought the spirit would be smart enough to disrupt the CCTV but oh well.

The plot for episode 3 felt a bit convoluted to me. The Dukdali tree haunting was super cool, but then the haunted(?) photograph got eaten by the fish(??) which then started haunting their debt-ridden new owners(???) who only got the fish because of a truly bizarre 'gift' from their illegal loansharks? wild. It was interesting that the evil spirit didn't end up killing the loanshark though. Was she just toying with him or was there some reason she wasn't able to force him to commit suicide?

I also have to agree there were some odd character moments. Quirkycase already mentioned how San-young just handed over Tae-young's family info, but also it struck me as a little odd later that Hae-sang so easily brushed off San-young's worries about not feeling like herself and blacking out at the loanshark's (before recognizing the haunted fish scenario and rushing to find her possessed on the bridge).

The poking and complaining is because I'm really enjoying this one though! The acting is fantastic and there's just the right amount of creepy for me. I can't wait to get some answers for the huge pile of family secrets introduced this week

July 3, 2023 at 8:39 AM

I wasn't too sure what the Dukdali Tree plot was about. At the end of ep 4, I suspect that the tree story was merely designed to reveal more about Gang-mo's investigation one-year ago and show us that the spirit is actively protecting San-young from harm at the fish shop. So, my theory is that it is one strong spirit that is stronger than the Dukdali Tree spirit and that seems to have a vested interest in San-young for some reason.


July 3, 2023 at 11:41 am.

Yeah I think you're right. Which, the idea that San-young is protected by virtue of already being possessed could go some interesting places! I wonder if we'll ever get much of a team-up given how much baggage there is between San-young & Hae-sang and the spirit but there's certainly evidence that San-young's spirit isn't above helping them when it suits her (still somewhat unclear) motives. I think I just was maybe so interested in the concept of a tree so steeped in negative emotions that it became an evil ghost in and of itself, that I was a little disappointed where we ended up going lol

July 3, 2023 at 11:52 AM

If nine tailed story is something to go by, kids starved and killed become ghosts who can be beckoned to do someone's bidding.. and the way to get rid of the ghost is to take its name

I do think there is a 3rd party that is somehow controlling that ghost stays in this world and does their bidding.. i would say our ML's grandmother and whatever shady history is there

ghost by itself might not be too keen on staying in this world hence her provoking ML to find out her name

I never finished Tale of the Nine Tailed but I think you're on to something with Hae-sang's grandmother. At the very least, she seems the most likely to have introduced Hae-sang's mom to the hair accessory that hosted the spirit.

It's hard to tell if that's what the ghost wants though. Why burn the research and kill the two people who seem to know the most if she wanted someone to find her name? Is that why you think someone is controlling the ghost? I wonder how they would accomplish that completely remotely?

July 5, 2023 at 10:24 AM

i just think major twist in this series can follow only two paths -

1. Either the ghost's identity leaves people shocked

2. Or, the whole perspective of the ghost being evil is thwarted and becomes the shock factor

July 5, 2023 at 10:27 AM

The thing that confuses me is.. apparently ghost was in mom or ML as a kid and was doing her / his bidding.. she tried to get rid of the ribbon and was killed.. clearly neither she herself or her son wanted her dead.. so did ghost develop its own desire to kill? Is there a reset happens everytime she gets into a new body? she has to kill to grow enough to have her own desires?

FL doesn't have the ribbon , yet is possessed..

so i just think easier explanation is that control is working in some other way with the constraint that ghost must fulfill desires of host body.. afterall, someone wanted FL's dad dead (who?? if not the 3rd party who is benefitting by using this ghost)

July 3, 2023 at 1:22 PM

Knowing someone's true name gives you power over them - that's like occultism 101, basics of basics. Supposedly works both ways - to curse and to cure/exorcise... That's why most ancient cultures were into multi-naming, nicknames and other roundabout ways to keep such things as a secret only shared with really trusted people - or no one at all in some cases.

July 3, 2023 at 6:10 PM

I'm confused about the spirits intentions too! It caused the death of the scammer who took SY's money but not the loan shark? Why? Does it only choose to kill those who was the cause of its death, was researching about it and got too close to the truth (SY's dad) or touched/messed around with the haunted hairpiece (Hae-seong's mom)?

Hoping they would clear it up in the upcoming eps

Another set of episodes well done. Never boring at all. When ep 4 ended , I was surprised that it was the end already, I was not watching the clock at all. To think that it was also almost an hour long. No fillers, no slow mo walks. Even the close up face shots, usually a bit too long in most shows, was just perfect to watch the play of emotions in the actors' eyes. I had to replay the moment when FL shifted from possessed to herself - superbly acted.

The plot is also unfolded well, and I agree that the police investigation and the leads' investigation will eventually collide and make sense - the same way they arrived almost at the same time at the grandpa's place in time to save the college student.

There seems to be a bigger secret with the Mom's family.

Sadly No. For now, nothing legal at least. I was hoping Hulu would eventually get it like it does some other international Disney+ shows, but nothing so far.

July 6, 2023 at 8:53 AM

Aah, we watched it on Disney+ at North America. They didn't show it on the same platform in US? Weird 🧐

Also the running joke of Hae-sang only listening to purification rituals is so funny. It made me laugh this morning as I was trying to get my aux cord working in the car

July 3, 2023 at 2:15 PM

After 4 episodes I'm almost 100% positive there are actually two ghosts in there - sacrificed girl AND shaman who killed her. Hell, at this point I'm not even sure we can call this entity possessing SY a normal ghost - it's way too powerful and atypical for that. Let's go with a demon for now. And as for demon's goal - maybe answer lies in the (English, since Korean one simply means vague evil spirit ) title? Revenant means the one that returns... or wants to. What if it wants a body - to not only possess but fully own? SY coming from murdered girl's bloodline certainly isn't a coincidence. This very well may be a reason why her dad married her mom in the first place... That dark hint about SY's younger sibling (lemme guess - she was supposed to have a sister?), eventual (can the mom start talking? I'm so fed up with this woman and her ostrich attitude) family fallout and schemes to make SY accept some shady inheritance make an interesting puzzle. Our supernatural villain is playing long and complex game here. Gu family was certainly in it - either willingly/consciously or not - and HS's one possibly too. It's sus to me that his surname Yeom is also a part of the name for yeommae curse... Given that, his mom owning (?) cursed daenggi and his convenient spiritual powers he probably is related to that shaman. What a reunion if true!

Fish loan sharks case was bwahaha, so insane it's awesome))) Actually not, writer-nim, pls, stahp, we're trying to be serious here! Don't see much point in cops duo too yet - at least in the younger one. Wtf is the script trying to achieve with him in relation to SY? Odd friendship? Awkward dusty crush? Whatever it is, it doesn't work for me, so let's not. Sunbae helps with exposition/investigation (and we love KWH), so he can stay.

Best parts were definitely folklore bits, even tho some of them (child burial, ugh) made me feel sick. Yeah, I wonder why the poor tree started to have bad vibes and attract hangers after all that dead babies on its branches disrespect... Straw dolls ritual sounded cool tho, too bad we probably won't see leads performing it since dolls are gone. Or not? Either way, that grandma is so selfish - if she wants to risk her own neck to reunite with her dead daughter, fine, but why dragging others along? Misery SO loves company in this show!

As usual, Tae-ri & Jung-se are doing a great job at their roles!

I love how the viewers are somewhat a part of the investigations as we are just as clueless as San-yeong & Hae-sung as they go about their quest for answers. My only gripe is the scare factor for now is really tamed. Not much is really scaring me, just some uncomfortable moments with the dark themes.

Also anyone else super afraid whenever Hae-sung tells San-yeong important pieces of information related to the spirit because you know the spirit is right there and could possibly use that against them??

My toxic trait while watching this series though is that I keep relying on the evil spirit to "protect" San-yeong whenever I feel like shes going to be in danger. With thoughts like "ah the spirit will help her" or "Oh she has the spirit" - the scene in the village when she looks up at the mirror and sees all the wandering spirits, I was thinking. "cant they see the ghost within her too?"

Aside from that, this show is really intriguing and I'm excited to see how it'll end

Revenant Season 1 Episode 5 Recap – Who is possessing San-yeong?

Revenant Season 1 Episode 5 Recap – Who is possessing San-yeong?

This recap of the Disney+ K-Drama Revenant Season 1 Episode 5 contains spoilers.

There has been lots to like about Revenant thus far, not least the performances. Kim Tae-ri, having already proved her acting chops in stuff like Mr. Sunshine , Space Sweepers , and Twenty Five Twenty One , is a clear stand-out in the fifth episode of the Disney+ K-Drama .

She’s been good throughout, obviously, but she’s particularly great here really leaning into the demonic double-act routine.

Revenant Season 1 Episode 5 Recap

What are jangseungs.

Continuing a good habit of showing rather than artlessly telling, we learn about janseungs, or “village guardians”, through Hae-sang watching a video about them.

Jangseungs are totem poles used primarily in summoning or repelling the dead. They mark paths for travellers, frighten away demons, that sort of thing.

Hae-jang’s theory is that the village lady altered the Jangseungs, drawing the wandering spirits to Baekchol so she could reunite with her deceased daughter. To protect himself from the ghosts, Hae-sang broadcasts the ritual sound through the neighborhood’s speakers as he embarks on a mission to locate the modified Jangseung, which, when he finds it, he destroys with an axe.

Why did Gyeong-mun leave Gang-mo?

After a conversation with her dead father, which leads both she and Hae-sang to realize he was possessed by the same malevolent spirit, San-yeong confronts her mother, Gyeong-mun, about a literal lifetime of deception on the subject.

As it turns out, she was pretty justified in fleeing Gang-mo and eloping to Seoul with San-yeong. When she was pregnant with her second child, a possessed Gang-mo’s curses resulted in the loss of the child’s life. That’s not something one necessarily gets over.

Who is possessing San-yeong?

Of course, this is really the doings of a very determined spirit, so you can’t blame the guy entirely. It all relates back to a Jangjin-ri tradition wherein villagers would sacrifice second-born children to summon a youthful spirit and avert looming disaster. Both Hae-sang and San-yeong consider the spirit inhabiting the latter to be the vengeful Mokdan, sacrificed by her own family.

Mokdan has a field day with San-yeong in this episode, but it does at least lead to those aforementioned acting highlights, with Tae-ri doing a wonderful job in embodying this dual personality, especially late on after Semi invites her to a senior girl’s wedding celebration.

Oh, we also learn that when possessed San-yeong can see Hae-sang’s deceased spirit friend, Woo-jin, who previously believed San-yeong was not privy to his presence. This leads to a bit of a falling out between Hae-sang and Woo-jin.

Revenant Season 1 Episode 5 Ending Explained

Things take quite the turn towards the end of this latest episode.

San-yeong, possessed and driven to fulfil her darkest impulses by the spirit, murders a famous influencer so she can attend the celebration in something elegant. There, she behaves with such disturbing ease that, when she regains her senses, she flees in terror of her own behaviour.

The final scenes connect San-yeong, once again possessed after imploring the demon to leave her be, and Hae-song. She intones “You found it,” as Hae-sang digs up a buried object at Gyeong-mun’s mother’s place.

You can stream the K-Drama Revenant Season 1 Episode 5 exclusively on Disney+.

Where to watch the ‘Revenant’ Kdrama

The thrilling new series is already catching on.


A new Korean drama is turning heads, but access to Revenant on streaming can be hard to come by.

The mysterious series, which is still in its debut season, is already collecting fans in droves. Actually getting access to the series is no easy task, unfortunately, particularly in certain areas of the world. Korean viewers are already enjoying Revenant ‘s thrilling initial arc, which released on South Korean television channel SBS TV on June 23, and viewers in the U.S., U.K., and across the globe are looking to join them.

Where to stream Revenant

Revenant puts a delightful spin on the trope of demons and demon hunters, and viewers are already gobbling up the Korean drama . Just a few episodes into its debut season, the series follows a woman possessed by a devil, aided by a man who can see these devils, as she untangles a mystery surrounding several bizarre deaths.

Season one of the series is expected to contain 12 episodes in total, and concludes airing on July 29. Fans of its combination of mystery and drama can catch the series on streaming , but only if you live in certain areas. The series should (hopefully) become more available to global audiences eventually, but for now there are only a few streaming options.

Revenant is available to stream for some Disney Plus subscribers, but not all. Many viewers in the U.S. will struggle to track the series down , unfortunately, but fans in the U.K., Australia, and Canada — to name a few — should all have access. There don’t appear to be any streaming options currently available for U.S. viewers, but the show’s presence on Disney Plus in other areas of the world is likely good news. Hopefully Revenant will make its way to Disney Plus in the states as well, but for now we’ve got a bit of a wait on our hands.

8 KDramas Like Revenant You Must See

Pooja Sharma of 8 KDramas Like Revenant You Must See

Overrun with an engrossing premise and bone-chilling fear, the South Korean drama ‘Revenant’ follows the story of Gu San-Yeong, a young woman whose predicament leaves her juggling multiple jobs. However, things soon turn from bad to worse when Gu San-Yeong realizes that she is possessed. Realizing her quandary, Yeom Hae-Sang discovers that the ghosts that haunt Gu San-Yeong have a connection to decade-old deaths. As the duo embarks on a discovery to figure out the truth behind the mystery , several chilling themes emerge.

Writer Kim Eun-hee intertwines modern horror with folklore in the series. The horror crime thriller features compelling performances by Kim Tae-ri, Oh Jung-se, and Hong Kyung. With a dark cloud cast over the protagonist, the series delves into the dark metaphor that surrounds undiscovered mysteries. So, if you enjoyed the depiction of a world where crime and mysteries transcend spatial and temporal realities, then here is a list of similar shows. You can watch several of these shows, like ‘Revenant’ on Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon Prime.

8. The Ghost Detective (2018)

ghost in revenant kdrama

Another eerie premise that envelopes the protagonist in a chilling conundrum, ‘The Ghost Detective,’ created by Han Ji-Wan, follows the story of Lee Da Il, a man who used to run his own private detective agency. After getting embroiled in the case of a missing child, Lee Da Il eventually dies and becomes a spirit. Gratefully, Jung Yeo Wool can see his spirit and the two start communicating. As the duo embarks on a journey to resolve a streak of serial suicide cases where a lady in red appears, the story progresses into an immersive thriller. Just as ‘Revenant’ recounts the abysmal horror of ghosts and sacred objects, ‘The Ghost Detective’ also dives into a mystery thriller that is not defined by rationality and logic.

7. The Guest (2018)

ghost in revenant kdrama

Mapping the difference between a bane and a boon, Yoon Hwa-Pyung is born into a family of shamans and can see ghosts. As a psychic capable of looking onto the other side, Hwa Pyung traverses several horrifying situations. Years ago, Hwa Pyung discovered a powerful demon who caused terror in the life of the villagers and ended up killing his family members too. Twenty years later, Hwa Pyung works as a taxi driver and also uses his abilities to help possessed people. Jilted by his past and moved by his duty, ‘The Guest’ by creators Kwon So-Ra and Seo Jae-Won features the same resolve that pushes Gu San-Yeong and Yeom Hae-Sang to uncover a crime thriller.

6. Hotel del Luna (2019)

ghost in revenant kdrama

Death is just another stop for lost spirits in ‘Hotel del Luna.’ The series revolves around a mysterious hotel that is located in the heart of Seoul. Albeit invisible to humans, the hotel’s mysterious hostess brings on a human manager following a vicious bet. As ghosts continue to stop into the hotel before moving on to the afterlife, several convoluted themes follow.

Created by Hong Jung Eun and Hong Mi Ran, the series features Lee Ji-eun as the title character with Yeo Jin-Goo, Lee Do-Hyun, Kim Soo-Hyun, and Sulli. With a heartfelt narrative that dives into the metaphor of life and offers a poignant commentary on mortality, ‘Hotel del Luna’ traces several themes. So, if you were intrigued by the internal battles that Gu San-Yeong faces in ‘Revenant,’ then you’ll find this series equally gripping.

5. Bring It On, Ghost (2016)

ghost in revenant kdrama

Waging war on ghosts, Bong Pal has used his ability to see ghosts as a feat to banish them since childhood. When he finds a feisty spirit at a haunted high school, things change, and fates intertwine. As the duo starts fighting ghosts together, Bong Pal soon realizes that not all ghosts are malevolent. However, as the two grow closer, a much more menacing danger looms overhead. Just as Gu San-Yeong finds herself entangled in a horrifying mystery, ‘Bring It On, Ghost’ by creator Lee Dae-Il, also features a comedic insight into the mystery of the afterlife.

4. The Cursed (2020)

ghost in revenant kdrama

Dismantling the practice of shamans, ‘The Cursed,’ created by Yeon Sang-Ho, sets off in the remote areas of a mountain where a mother and her daughter survive hand-t0-mouth by practicing Shamanism. After an unexpected travesty kills the mother and leaves So Jin alone, the latter goes on to wreak havoc equally. The story follows suit a decade later where So Jin becomes a dark and mysterious teenager with a unique gift. The plot further convolutes when So Jin meets a social issues reporter who is bent upon fighting against an evil conglomerate. So, if the unlikely pairing of Gu San-Yeong and Yeom Hae-Sang intrigued you, then you’ll be equally entertained by this duo on a mission.

3. Tomorrow (2022)

ghost in revenant kdrama

In this tale of the inconceivable, half-human, and half-spirit, Choi Jun-Woong is a young job seeker who cannot land a gig. However, when he ends up meeting Grim Reapers Koo Ryeon and Lim Ryung Gu, a duo tasked with preventing suicide, everything changes. Soon, Jun Woong is hired to work as the youngest contractor in the crisis management team of death angels. As Jun Woong navigates the sensitive balance of the underworld and carries out special missions, he finds himself enveloped in a number of unexpected situations. Just as ‘Revenant’ dives into folklore and explores the hidden meanings of sacred objects, ‘Tomorrow,’ developed by Hong Sook-Woo, also features a glimpse of the all-pervading beliefs.

2. Save Me (2017)

ghost in revenant kdrama

Starring Ok Taec-yeon, Seo Yea-ji, Woo Do-hwan, and Jeon Yeo-been, the series is created by Jung Shin-Kyoo and dives into the unbridled effects of pseudo beliefs. The story revolves around Im Sang-mi, a young woman whose family moves to Muji County and leaves behind the suburbs of Seoul after her father’s business fails. Here, her family is lured by a religious cult leading to years of entrapment. It isn’t until she chances upon her friends from school in an alley years later that Sang-mi gets a chance at freedom. While elements of horror may be amiss from ‘Save Me,’ it still features a riveting psychological thriller that borders on the irrational, making this the right show to watch next.

1. Black (2017)

ghost in revenant kdrama

Created by Choi Ran, ‘Black’ is another series that features an inextricably linked mystery dating back decades. ‘Black’ follows the story of Han Moo-Gong, a detective who has been possessed by the Grim Reaper. When he meets a woman who can see the dead, their worlds collide, and horrors emerge. As ontological truths unwind, the duo finds themselves ensnared in a dark mystery that dates back twenty years. Much like Gu San-Yeong, whose fate is embroiled by her possession, ‘Black’ also features the story of an unwitting detective possessed by death.

11 Spooky Supernatural And Korean Ghost Dramas 2023

In this article, you can find a list of the best Korean ghost dramas on Netflix, Viu, Viki, and other streaming platforms.

I love all things supernatural! Zombies, Werewolves, Vampires. But do you know what supernatural creatures are underrated? Ghosts! 

Seriously! Remember movies like The Ring that managed to be so scary. Or Beetlejuice and Casper which were sweet heartwarming stories? 

Ghosts are very versatile. And Korean dramas (when terrifying you with zombies and demons from hell) make such wonderful ghost stories.

What I liked best about these Korean ghost dramas is that they aren’t necessarily hide-your-face-with-your-hands scary. 

The plot of these K-dramas are so layered and the genres range from horror to romance and even comedy, despite being about ghosts.

So what are the best Korean ghost dramas? Here is a list I’ve made of all my f ones and where you can watch them. 

Table of Contents

Top Korean Ghost Drama 2023

Ghost detective .

  • Number Of Episodes : 32 
  • Cast : Choi Daniel, Park Eun-Bin, Lee Ji-ah 
  • Where To Watch : Viki, Dramacool

Would you like to live in a world where ghosts, demons, etc. are all real? This type of world is exactly where the show Ghost Detective is based.

Just like there’s police to help catch criminals who are human, this world has cops for ghosts too!

And one person is the former military man Lee Da Il who works as a private investigator hunting ghosts alongside his assistant Jung Yeo-wool.

If you love crime-based shows with a spooky twist, you’ll love this show. It has elements that remind you of shows like Lucifer and Supernatural. 

Ghost Detective is a show with a lot of action and suspense. It has elements that remind you of the supernatural genre but it also has comedy, romance, and drama all in one.

The characters are great; they have good chemistry between each other which makes watching their journey to find out what’s going on even more fun!

I am not a big fan of shows that have a lot of comedy and are centered around the main characters’ lives, but this show was different. It is based on an interesting concept and has elements that remind you of Sherlock (which I like).

The most memorable thing about this series is definitely its comical twist to the crime genre. The drama had me laughing out loud at times, which made it all the more enjoyable for me as well. In addition to being fun to watch, Ghost Detective also has good chemistry between its two lead actors who play off each other really well!

The Master’s Sun

  • Number Of Episodes :  17
  • Cast : So Ji-sub, Gong Hyo-jin
  • Where To Watch : Netflix, Viki

This 2013 K-drama combines a classic ghost story with romance, fantasy and comedy elements. 

It follows Gong-shil, a young woman who is blessed (or rather cursed) with the ability to see ghosts following a life-threatening accident.

These ghosts hound her continually seeking her help to fulfil their last wishes. However, all this ghostly interference takes a toll on Gong-shil’s daily life and she becomes a recluse.

Until one day, she meets self-centred CEO Joo Joong-won who makes her ghosts disappear… quite literally!  

He keeps her by his side hoping to use her supernatural ability for his gain. She agrees as Joong-won’s presence keeps the ghosts away. 

But this marriage of convenience takes a different turn when they actually begin to fall in love with each other. No surprises there!

I really like the Master’s Sun as the show combines many genres. It is an exhilarating adventure, it has it’s spooky moments, and it also

I was in the mood for a good ghost story, and this drama delivers. It’s quite different from other dramas I’ve watched because it has many elements that you don’t normally see in an Asian TV drama. Firstly, it is not all about ghosts or spirits; there are plenty of human characters as well!

Secondly, Gong-shil is not just some “damsel in distress” who falls into trouble and needs to be saved by her handsome man character; she plays a big part in helping solve the mystery at hand.

Thirdly, while yes there are ghosts involved (as mentioned above), they’re actually very realistic.

The acting is phenomenal in this drama, particularly Park Hae-il who plays Gong-shil’s boyfriend Yoo Chang-woong (not Jaejoong).

He portrays his character so well that you really feel like he could be your best friend. The slow burn romance between them makes you want to see how things turn out for their relationship which keeps you glued to the screen every week!

Oh My Ghost

  • Number Of Episodes : 16 
  • Cast :   Park Bo-young, Jo Jung-suk, Lim Ju-hwan, Kim Seul-gi

Now not all ghost stories need to be scary! If you’re looking for the best ghost comedy Korean drama, then Oh My Ghost is the one.

The show revolves around a shy and timid chef called Na Bong-sun who gets possessed by a… ahem…rather horny virgin ghost called Shin Soon-ae, who is determined to do complete this one “unfinished business”. 

Things get worse for Na Bong-sun when the ghost sets her eyes on Bong-sun’s arrogant boss, the star chef Kang Sun-woo. 

I love this drama. It is one of the best Korean dramas I have ever watched and it has a great story that will make you laugh, cry or even scream!

The characters are so well developed and they are easy to relate with especially Bong-sun who’s just like us, he doesn’t know how to deal with ghosts but still tries his best to save people no matter what happens. I am obsessed by Shin Soon-ae because she’s very interesting character.

She is trying her hardest to help Na Bong-sun solve the problem of becoming human again while being stuck as a ghost in her body.

Oh My Ghost is a hilarious and fun show. The characters are all very lovable, the romance between the two main characters is adorable and there’s even an interesting new concept for romance in this one!

If you want a ghostly tale that will have you clutching your stomach in laughter rather than your face with fear, you can watch Oh My Ghost. It’s available on Netflix and Viki.

  • Number Of Episodes : 8 
  • Cast : Song Chae-Yoon, Han Su-ah, Shim So-Young, Yeong-gi Jeong
  • Where To Watch : Netflix

Not to be confused with a Korean horror movie anthology of the same name, Goedam is a K-drama series based on urban legends.

Each episode of this anthology series is about a different spooky folk tale. So you can find more than ghost stories there. 

The 1st, 2nd, and 8th stories are pure ghostly spook, you’ve come here for. 

But the rest of the show is also quite interesting with tales about shamans, a folk monster called the Smiling Woman, and interdimensional beings. 

49 Days 

  • Number Of Episodes :  20
  • Cast : Lee Yo-won, Nam Gyu-ri, Jo Hyun-jae, Bae Soo-bin
  • Where To Watch : Amazon Prime, Viu

The plot of this Korean ghost drama is a very interesting one. Shin Ji Hyun, a cheerful girl seemingly has everything going for her in her life. 

She has loving parents, a handsome boyfriend who she’s about to marry, a great job. But all of that changes when she gets into an accident and ends up in a coma.

Ji Hyun refuses to give up on her life and makes a deal with the grim reaper. If she can find three people (who don’t know her) to cry genuine tears for her, he’ll let her live. And she has 49 days to accomplish her task.

To make this work, Ji Hyun’s ghost borrows the body of Yi Kyung, who works at a grocery store.

Will Ji-Hyun make it to the land of the living? Well, you have to see the K-drama in order to find out! It’s available on Viu and Amazon Prime.

Bring It On, Ghost 

  • Number Of Episodes : 16
  • Cast : Ok Taecyeon, Kim So-hyun, Kwon Yul
  • Where To Watch : Viki

Here’s another ghostly, romantic comedy for you! I love the chemistry between the main characters in this show.

There’s Park Bong-pa, a ghost-hunter who hates this ability and works as an exorcist in order to make money. 

And on the other side there’s high school student Kim Hyun-ji who’s died prematurely and now wanders the earth as a restless spirit.

Kim Hyun-ji seeks Bong-pa’s help to find out why she’s still stuck on earth and eventually becomes his partner in ghostbusting.  

And like in most K-drama’s this unusual couple falls in love!

But both are unaware of the dark spirit that’s haunting them and is the cause of both their troubles.

You can find this K-drama on Rakuten Viki. 

Arang And The Magistrate

  • Number Of Episodes : 20
  • Cast :  Lee Joon-gi, Shin Min-ah, Yeon Woo-jin
  • Where To Watch : Amazon Prime, Viki

I do love a good historical show, especially the Joseon Korean dramas ! And I further was enraptured with the supernatural elements in this one.

The story follows a nobleman Kim Eun-oh who comes to a village seeking his mother. 

But instead, he finds the amnesiac ghost Arang who is desperately trying to find out how she died.

Eun-oh, now the magistrate reluctantly begins to help her as he finds clues linking Arang to his mother. 

Hotel Del Luna

  • Cast : Lee Ji-Eun (IU), Yeo Jin-goo
  • Where To Watch : Netflix, Viki, Viu

Probably one of the most popular Korean ghost drama on Netflix, Hotel Del Luna stars Kpop idol IU (who’s popular as Korea’s “little sister”). 

The K-drama revolves around the titular Hotel which is reserved only for souls or ghosts that have unfinished business in this world and rarely appears to humans.

And IU plays the moody owner of the hotel Jang Man-wol who finds herself bound to the place as penance for a sin she committed a thousand years ago.

Things get interesting when Jang Man-wol makes a deal with a human and promises him 20 years of riches in exchange for 20 years of his son’s life.

So when the son Gu Chan-sung finally comes back to South Korea after his stint abroad he faces Jang Man-wol and the prospect of working at Hotel Del Luna instead of the cushy, normal hotel job he was expecting!

  Sell Your Haunted House

  • Cast :   Jang Na-ra, Jung Yong-hwa, Kang Hong-seok, Ahn Gil-kang
  • Where To Watch : Viki, Viu

What happens you put a bonafide exorcist with the ability to see and banish ghosts with a con artist who simply pretends to do this? 

Well, you can watch Sell Your Haunted House on Viki or Viu to find out. I’m not giving you any spoilers!

Hong Ji-ah is a real estate agent who sells haunted houses after getting rid of any supernatural creatures living in there. 

But she can’t seem to understand the circumstances in which her mother died. 

So she teams up with Oh In-beom, a conman whose uncle passed away in a similarly mysterious way to find out the secret behind the two deaths.

  • Number Of Episodes : 18
  • Cast : Song Seung-heon, Go Ara, Lee El, Kim Dong-jun
  • Where To Watch : Netflix, Viu

There have been several stories involving the Grim Reaper in Korean dramas. This is one of my favourite ones after Guardian. 

The show follows Grim Reaper #444 who is now possessing the body of a former detective Han Moo-gang. 

While doing his duties of ferrying the dead to the afterlife, the Grim Reaper discovers clues that can potentially solve a cold case from years ago.

And in the process, he also manages to fall in love with Moo-gang’s childhood friend Kang Ha-ram who coincidentally can see the death following people.

FAQs about Korean Supernatural Dramas

Is Bring it on ghost and let’s fight ghost the same?

Yes, these two K-dramas are the same. The TV show is called Bring It On Ghost” but it’s based on a manhwa or webtoon that is called “Let’s fight ghost”. The show stars Ok Taec-yeon, Kim So-hyun and Kwon Yul.

Is Hotel de Luna horror?

There is ample amount of supernatural themes in the Kdrama Hotel De Luna. But it’s never outright horror. It is more spooky than scary. The show blends humor and ghosts in a fantastic and entertaining way. But you can watch it night alone and not get the heebie jeebies that’s for sure.

Does Bring It On, Ghost has a happy ending?

Yes, thankfully it does. It might be based on supernatural themes, but this drama is not technically scary or even in the horror genre.

I talk about Korean film A LOT! MY FAVE! Oddly, have NEVER found Korean TV show that kept me interested for a whole season. Until "Hellbound", Netflix Described as "Horror", it's NOT. Supernatural is a better description. Just so FREAKY, unpredictable, & well done. Anti-religion? — Mojack Marine (@MojackMarine) December 25, 2021

With the success of Netflix shows like Squid Games and Hellbound, there is a renewed interest in K-dramas.

A lot of people are now discovering that Korean dramas aren’t all about cutesy teen romances. There are several interesting genres you can find here.

And one such genre is the Korean ghost drama. These spooky tales are very popular as they aren’t your run of the mill horror stuff.

In one binge, these ghost K-dramas will scare you, make you laugh, and even cry. 

Now that’s a great plan for a weekend indoors!
