[Review] Missing Nine – 미씽나인

RELOCATING HUMANITY

Legend Entertainment’s staff members and artist board a private plane to perform at an overseas.  The plane ends up crashing and nine of its passengers are stranded on a deserted island.  The passengers include Seo Joon Oh (Jung Kyung Ho), Ra Bong Hee (Baek Jin Hee), Jung Ki Joon (Oh Jung Se), Choi Tae Ho (Choi Tae Joon), Ha Ji Ah (Lee Sun Bin), Lee Yul (EXO’s Park Chan Yeol), Yoon So Hee (Ryu Won), Tae Ho Hang (Tae Hang Ho) and Legend Entertainment’s President Hwang Jae Gook (Kim Sang Ho).

Four months later, Bong Hee finds herself washed ashore in China with no memory of how she got there or what occurred on the island between the crash and her rescue.  A special investigative committee is commissioned to find out what happened to her fellow passengers and whether anyone else has survived but it is unclear if the committee has ulterior motives for looking into the crash.

Just Bananas About: Week of 1/23/17

It’s the new year and we have a ton of new dramas to check out.  Missing Nine is just one of those new dramas that I was interested in checking out.  And it’s making me feel a little lost.  As in, I could see a lot of the plot and style of the American drama, Lost, in this one.  I’ll admit that I was one of those people who felt disappointed by the finale of Lost and here’s hoping that this one will have a more satisfying conclusion.

[Review] Let’s Fight, Ghost – 싸우자 귀신아

OH MY GHOST PART 2

Park Bong Pal (Ok Taek Yeon) has been able to see ghosts ever since he was a child.  He uses his ability to exorcise ghosts that he’s able to fight in order to make money to take away the ability to see ghosts entirely.  Hired to deal with a haunting at a school, he encounters Kim Hyun Ji (Kim So Hyun), a feisty high school student who died five years prior from a traffic accident.  Hyun Ji’s not sure why she hasn’t been able to move on but becomes convinced that Bong Pal can help her out.  In return, she agrees to help him fight the stronger ghosts.  They team up in an attempt to hunt malevolent ghosts and solve the problems of other ghosts so that their spirits can move on.
