Storyline

After suffering an accident some years ago, Tae Gong Shil gained the ability to see and talk to ghosts. However, years later they still scare her and their constant demands of help have made it impossible for her to lead a normal life, as the ghosts are always making her get fired from jobs or running out from dates. On a rainy night, after helping out a ghost, she hitches a ride from Joo Jong Won, a handsome and pompous CEO of a center mall that measures every relationship and thing with money. He concludes she's crazy quite quickly and ditches her. However, Tae Gong Sil starts to seek him out and try to get close to him, since she realizes that, whenever she touches him, the ghosts around her disappear. Written by Dama del Puente

How do you say "I see dead people" in Korean?
28 December 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I've had a hard time getting into Korean TV dramas, mostly due to the sappy romanticism and general melodrama. Master's Sun was the first member of the genre that I've actually liked, as it brings both a fun supernatural angle and a lot of humour to the proceedings.

Central to the series's appeal is Hyo-Jin Kong as the heroine, Tae Gong Sil. Not only is Gong-Sil endearing in her weirdness, but she actually has a pretty impressive character arc over the course of the series, going from an outcast who can barely handle everyday life to a confident woman that can stand on her own. While her relationship to a rich CEO is a part of this growth, the series also acknowledges her need for independence, which is nice considering that the romance genre (on both sides of the Pacific) generally encourages a very unhealthy codependence. The other characters are all endearing in their own way, especially the ghosts, who are both visually striking and straddle the difficult line between scary and funny.

Master's Sun is still very much of its genre, containing within it evil twins, amnesia, tragic misunderstandings, questionable gender politics, kisses shot from five different angles, and the same K-Pop songs in every episode. At 64 minutes a pop, the episodes drag on too long for what is ultimately a fairly lightweight narrative. But even the soapier elements are executed better than one would have any right to expect. Even with my limited knowledge of K-Dramas, I can say that this isn't the best one out there, but judging from my experience it just might be a good gateway drug.
