I have thoughts and opinions on this show and when it comes time to actually say something it's like I'm hitting a wall :/

I'm going to give it a shot though:

Okie idk how Seon Mi's ability to see ghosts disappeared when she could see them before she ever came into contact with Son Oh Gong. So she's either been Sam Jang from the jump and will be explained later or this is just an epic plot hole.

I really like the "monster of the week" this week.

PK makes me want to buy some dangly earrings.

The main couple still feels off to be because of the guemggango. Like I know we're supposed to be questioning what is genuine and what is just the magic bracelet but I can't ever forget that there is like weird mind control driving the romance plot.

I'm not explaining anything well right now which is why talking about this show gives me weird anxiety (which is nothing new for me I even get stressed over anything involving communication). Like this "couple" and the stuff with Alice's possession make me uncomfortable it overshadows other more enjoyable aspects of the show for me. I would honestly have an easier time with it if I could just put into words correctly about how I feel.

Any way this comment is very long and embarrassing so I'm going to stop now.

I was really bored with ep 9 & 10.

To me it felt like the plot didn't go anywhere? And I zoned out, got distracted by other things. This whole romance thing is boring now.

Love is powerful indeed. The past 2 episodes kept me watching every scene even if the main characters were not on focus. I really enjoy watching this.

Oh Gong is hot af and can get it anytime. Buja the zombie adorable, Ma Wang the villian you root for, and Sam Jang the most annoying clueless needy 30+ year old I ever watched. I find myself annoyed with her every episode. How many damn times you gonna ask if he loves you and forget he was forced to. Also the actress who plays her is so much better than this. Her facial expressions aggravate the shit out of me. Why is she going for these cutesy purposely half shocked half clueless expressions. The character is too old to be this dumb. Naive doesn't mean clueless. I thought we graduated from dumbass female leads kdrama world. We were doing so well.

Overall I do like it tho😂
