Oh My Ghostess is a Korean Supernatural RomCom/Dramedy which jumps into episode one with a wonderful setup. In the opening sequence, we have the police picking up yet another dead body in a long string of men that appear to have been frozen to death during a heat wave. That’s the only police procedural type action during the initial episode, but we do see the cops again later in a more domestic setting, and it is obvious they will play a major part in the story line going forward. The next scene introduces both our ghost protagonist and our living girl protagonist, their first encounter setting the tone for further interactions. Then we get introduced to all the other characters in their various settings, central to which is a team of cooks running a highly rated restaurant, a foodie blogger, an exorcist, and an entire community of ghosts who do not approve of Ms Ghostess’s approach to being less than alive. We also get to meet a wonderful range of supporting characters, all of them interesting and having the potential of being elevated to the main plot sequence depending on which way the writers decide to go. While I have only seen a single episode of this so far, I think it has a lot of potential, and I can’t wait to see what happens next. The entire series ran this summer and is only 16 hours long, so you should be able to complete it in a single weekend if Oh My Ghostess turns out to be something you enjoy.
