2. Master’s Sun
“Master’s Sun” is also a horror rom-com like “Oh My Ghostess,” although this one has more ghostly appearances. Tae Gong Shil (Gong Hyo Jin) develops the ability to see ghosts after an accident, and is haunted by them day and night. She discovers that physical contact with Joo Joong Won (So Ji Sub), her money-loving boss, makes the ghosts disappear. This continuously draws Gong Shil to Joong Won, whose quirky personality slowly breaks through Joong Won’s stand-offish front.
Other than the obvious humor with Gong Shil’s constant touching, this is one to watch for the amazing chemistry between Gong Hyo Jin and So Ji Sub. Joong Won and Tae Yang’s relationship is everything.
