Unable to contact any humans except a psychic named Unten (Kirin Kiki), can Nanami warn Jun-Ho before harm comes his way?
Musings: I am not a fan of remakes, I will be the first to say that. Rarely is a film re-casted and turns out well. And when you are talking about one of my all-time favorite romances, Ghost (1990 U.S. film “Ghost” which starred Patrick Swayze & Demi Moore), you better hope I like it.
This movie took me by surprise. Even though this is really a Japanese movie, it is here because of one person: Song Seung-Heon. I haven’t liked many of his dramas but when it comes to movies, this actor reins! Not only was this movie very true to the original but it also remained almost as romantic as the original.
The chemistry between Nanami and Jun-Ho was electric, just like original. I was totally pleased from beginning to end. Nothing was cut and it remained a very good movie. I highly recommend this movie and you are not going to get many romance recommends from me.
