Synopsis: A comedic story of a gangster who hires the services of a detective agency to get rid of the ghost of a female student. Kang Doo Sub is a legendary gangster boss whose ugly face alone is enough to frighten off opponents. When a female ghost begins following his gang, however, he is forced to go to desperate measures to get rid of her and avoid becoming a laughing stock.

Musings: Park Ki Woong and his infinite choices of weird colored hair! Okay, had to get that off my chest first. Even though this is a pretty short drama special, I love the choice of international music that they used. A lot of it was from various cultures other than Korean. The beginning sequence, I swear I’ve heard the music in other US movies during fight sequences. It was pretty funny.

In Doo Sub’s pursuit to get rid of the ghost, you learn just how human and less of a monster that he really is. His interactions with the abandoned kittens at the construction site is definitely the reminder of how “human” he really is. But the real reason behind this movie wasn’t so much about ghost but more about someone’s past. After you watch until the end, you realize what the movie really is about. So who was the “Ghost”? Wait until you see….

Sorry, No Trailer is available.The movie is available on several sites. Ask me if your interested.
