"Catch the Ghost" is a romantic investigative drama about a woman named Yoo Ryung who solves cases with her overflowing sense of justice and exceptional spatial perception but always gets herself into trouble because of her rash actions. She meets the Wangsimni station constabulary chief, a man who avoids cases and seeks stability. However, he always ends up cleaning up after the problems caused by Yoo Ryung and holds the key to the solving the cases.
The main character's name is written the same way as the word "ghost" in Korean, thus the literal translation of the title could be the same as the official English title or "Catch Yoo Ryeong". See more »
What I didn't like was some characters and the romance spin on the story. What I liked was the case, the action scenes and the way they wrapped everything together.
First of all, the main case was interesting. They managed to link everything together and, in the end, the final result was satisfying. The villain had background and it was nice that they didn't make it easy to figure out who the ghost was. The action scenes were pretty well managed too. However, the drama was interesting only at the begining and towards the ending. Thus, the main part was boring at times and didn't provide anything fresh.
Then there were the characters. Though I liked the male lead, who was overall a sweetheart, the female lead was annoying at times. It was clear and understandable that she did what she did to find her sister and solve her case, but she tended to ignore or forget her team and act on her own. The leader of the police team was extra unlikable as well. She was bullying the female lead for childish reasons and she acted unprofessionally and idiotic.
Finally, the romance was just not necessary. Or, at least, it didn't work for me. The love triangle was even worse, as it was hardly there in the first place.
That said, the performances were really good, from everyone in the cast, but especially the leading lady who was amazing as the sister and the subway cop.
So, overall, six out of ten.
