I wouldn’t be surprised if Ghost with So Ji Sub and Lee Yeon Hee ends up leading the Wed-Thurs drama pack in the upcoming cycle. The PD and scriptwriter combo did the ratings success Sign last year for SBS (which I skipped due to my raging Park Shin Yang allergy), and I’ve actually been a fan of the PD’s directing style for quite a few other dramas (I am Legend, Cain & Abel, Surgeon Bong Dal Hee). I think K-drama glitzy procedurals have an audience since it doesn’t come along that often, and Ghost is chock full of solid actors such as Daniel Choi and Uhm Ki Joon playing second leads. I’m not a fan of Lee Yeon Hee, and am actually more interested in second female lead Song Ha Yoon (who formerly went by her stage name Kim Byul). I’m really on the fence about this one, but So Ji Sub has failed so miserably on the small screen since he finished his mandatory service that I’m rooting for Ghost to resurrect his poor track record out of sympathy alone. Ghost will air on SBS following Rooftop Prince. Oh, and for the record, where is Uhm Ki Joon in the script reading stills? Wahhh, I protest!
