      buaya d Powerfull ending. Its very clever, made a drama story with comedy and 'horror'. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 05/11/23 Full Review Audience Member A narrative that elicits many laughs, and tons of tears after the main element of the plot is revealed! Half the cinema was sniffing in the 2/3 of the movie. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/13/23 Full Review Audience Member Such a heartwarming movie. I was having fun at first. Laughing and all. Then, at the end of the movie, i bawled my eyes out! I love these kind of movies ???? Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/09/23 Full Review Audience Member A Hilarious, and very charming movie that will keep you looking on the screen for the whole movie. You will love every characters, and every moment from this movie. Oh by the way.. Don't forget your box of tissues. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review jesse o Maybe it's the fact that it's been forever since I've seen a light and fluffy Korean dramedy, but this wasn't as bad as one would imagine. Not that I was expecting this to be bad, but I know how these type of films usually play out in South Korea. And that adherence to formula really gets tiresome after a while A suicidal man, after a failed suicide attempt, starts to see the ghosts of four people. So I could've, very easily, predicted how this film would've been structured. There's the quirky and goofy beginning, setting everything up in a comical fashion, where you see Sang-man, the lead, being annoyed at the fact that all these ghosts are following him around, making him do things he would never do. Then there comes the period where Sang-man starts to connect with the ghosts and get along with them. Then comes the period that Sang-man gets better and pushes the ghosts away before the last act, that relies heavily on sentimentality and melodrama. Like I said at the beginning, maybe it's the fact that I haven't seen a film like this in a while, but I didn't mind the melodrama and the sentimentality one bit. I mean, it's definitely trying to tug at your heartstrings, maybe a little too forceful at that, but I didn't mind it that much. And the 'twist' is really kind of obvious once you find out that Sang is an orphan and the ghosts he sees are those of an old man, a middle aged man, a middle aged woman and a little kid. If you can put two and two together, then you can pretty much figure it out. That doesn't mean that the movie won't try to milk that for all its worth in trying to make you cry, so I didn't like that, but it wasn't as bad as the worst of these types of films I've ever seen, Lifting King Kong, which featured 30+ minutes of multiples characters just crying non-stop. It was just the dirt worst. This isn't that and, honestly, I think it does mean well and there's a certain sweetness about it, showcasing that, as lonely as Sang felt throughout his entire adult life, he has never been alone. It's a little cheesy, but it means well and parts of it were sweet. Most of it was too sentimental for my tastes, however. The movie's not bad, honestly, parts of it are good, but a lot of it just ends up feeling like a series of skits, since Sang-man has to go around and perform various tasks for the ghosts to get them to leave. It doesn't really feel like there's a story arc, because even the twist itself is set up in the same scene it actually happens, though it's something you can figure out on your own. But the whole structure of Sang-man performing various tasks for the ghosts feels like something to kill time. It is supposed to build a connection between Sang and the ghosts, and in a way it does, but it doesn't really have any sort of relevance to where the film ultimately ends up. Oh and there's the obligatory romantic subplot, because why not? I don't think there's any real chemistry between Sang and his romantic interest, but that's what the movie did, so, you know, whatever. Again, the film's not bad, but I just wished it had more of an actual narrative to carry it instead of relying on the sitcom-y aspects of its concept. Yes, there is some very heavy melodrama, but it isn't that bad. Overall, though, this movie just falls short of being good. I just don't think that the comedy is that good and it doesn't really serve much of a purpose in the long run. Average at best, not particularly recommended.
