Movie Monday: Don’t Worry, I’m a Ghost (2012)

Starring: Bong Tae-Gyu as Moon-Ki and Park Shin-Hye as Yeon-Hwa

Rating: PG

Running Time: 70 min

Twinkies: 3 1/2

Synopsis: Moon-Ki (Bong Tae-Gyu) is involved in an accident and wakes up in the hospital but he can’t remember his own name, family members or where he lives. Through fingerprint checks, he learns that his name is Moon-Ki and his address. When he returns home, Moon-Ki feels strange in the unfamiliar home but he wakes up in the middle of the night and sees a woman (Park Shin-Hye) looking down on him. The woman tells Moon-Ki she is a ghost.

Musings: This one is for you, Russ! Let’s start out with the cute! I’m still trying to get my nerves together to watch the scary (I’m such a wimp!). But this was seriously cute, at times but also serious as it dealt with Yeon Hwa’s murder! Park Shin Hye as the Ghost, you can’t get any cuter than this. When she took him to her wake, this was probably one of the rare, serious moments in the movie but previous to that was when poor Moon-Ki went to the doctor, Yeon-Hwa little antics there were definitely comedic. Bong Tae-Gyu, I have seen in many supporting roles but this was my first experience with him as the lead.

His face when she said let’s date? First of all, date a ghost? But a pretty ghost? How can a man refuse. Slowly the story unravels as the real culprit is following Moon Ki around or is he? Also, we find out who liked who but neither was willing or able to tell the other how they felt; so sad. The rest of the movie followed them on their dates. In the final, we return to the main story, Yeon Hwa’s murder with a surprising twist.

You’re wondering about the phone? Sorry, you’ll have to watch the movie for that little secret. Overall, it was very good but so, so sad! Very well done. Sure, reel me in with the cuteness and then stick the knife in my heart… pun intended.
