Ji Ah, a woman who has inherited exorcism abilities from her mother, is the owner of Daebak Realty, a company that specializes in selling haunted houses.
Ji Ah looks perfect and is also brilliant, but her hot temper makes her fists fly before her words.
One day, Ji Ah encounters a conman named In Beom who specializes in exorcism fraud. Late at night when Daebak Realty operates, In Beom visits Ji Ah to make an offer. He suggests that they team up to exclusively sell houses that are haunted by vengeful spirits and lingering ghosts.
Can the two get along well and deal with house prices, ghosts, and their sorrowful stories?
I really enjoyed this series, first because it was quite different from the ones I normally watch. Ladies and gentlemen… It’s not about romance.
Since it is a series of exorcisms and, therefore, has ghosts, I thought it could be scary, but outside a couple of screamers that gave me a pre-heart attack, the series is not scary at all.
In fact, it is much more of a comedy, but with a rather interesting background.
The series revolves around Ji A’s desperate attempt to send her mother’s spirit to rest, which, for some reason, cannot be exorcised in a normal way. This woman’s personality really is a case. It’s funny most of the time, but it really goes over sometimes 😂.
On the other side, we have In Bom, who has a scam business with his best friend in which they pretend to get rid of ghosts. Ironically, In Bom turns out to be a powerful medium and decides to work alongside Ji A on haunted house exorcisms, which they then take care of selling (good business actually haha).
While this series has quite a bit of comedy, it is not at all light.
The vengeful spirits are mostly people who died suddenly. Including accidents and murders, so there are a couple of pretty terrible stories. Even death of children.
What I liked most about this series is that it became completely unpredictable until the last chapter. In addition, the family or friendship relationships that are formed are really beautiful.
Curiosities that caught my attention:
- Forced publicity within the series. I never really knew the brands, but I laughed at the history of the underwear and the anti-wrinkle bar.
- The actress who plays Mi-jin, Ji-a’s mother, is 36-year-old Baek Eun-hye. While the actress of Ji-a is Jang Na Ra of 41 years. She died young, though, so it makes sense. But the most important thing about this is… I want to look like Na Ra with 40 years 😂.
What do you think about this series?
Bye bye 💕
*When I did this review, this series was available on Netflix and Viki, (at least in Chile)*
