Hey Ghost, Let's Fight (Korean싸우자 귀신아; RRSsauja Gwisin-a) is a South Korean television series starring Ok Taec-yeon, Kim So-hyun and Kwon Yul.[2] It is adapted from webtoon of the same name which was serialized on Naver from 2007 to 2010.[3][4][5] The series aired on cable network tvN on Mondays and Tuesdays at 23:00 (KST) for 16 episodes from July 11 to August 30, 2016.

Synopsis[edit]

Park Bong-pal (Ok Taec-yeon) has grown up with the ability to see ghosts. He uses his power to work as an exorcist, banishing ghosts in order to make enough money to undergo a procedure that will take his ability away. At a haunted high school, he encounters Kim Hyun-ji (Kim So-hyun) a feisty high school student who, because of a traffic accident, became a wandering spirit. Hyun-ji believes that Bong-pal might hold the secret as to why she is a spirit. In order to be freed from endlessly wandering the earth and be able to ascend to the next life, Hyun-ji convinces Bong-pal to let her move in, and the two become ghost fighting partners.

With Hyun-ji, Bong-pal finds that he can fight even stronger ghosts, but also learns that not all ghosts are malevolent. Working and living together, Bong-pal, a long time loner, finds himself falling in love with Hyun-ji, who returns his feelings. However, both are unaware that they are being stalked by an evil spirit that was the cause of Hyun-ji's accident, and is the reason Bong-pal can see ghosts.

Cast[edit]

Main[edit]

The male protagonist of the series. Bong-pal is a 23-year-old 2nd year Economics student and the adopted son of an exorcist. He can see and interact with ghosts, who he beats up into leaving their haunts. Due to his ability he grew up avoiding people and was always a loner before he met and fell in love with Hyun-ji.

The female protagonist of the series. A middle high-school student who, since a car accident when she was aged 19, has roamed the earth for five years as a wandering spirit. With no memory of her past she is unable to move on. Discovering that Bong-pal may hold the secret of her past, she moves in with him and becomes his ghost fighting partner. She can see how ghosts were killed, allowing her to help Bong-pal in dispelling them. Living and fighting, together and against each other, she falls in love with Bong-pal.

The main antagonist of the series. At 31, he is the youngest professor of veterinary medicine at Bong-pal's university. He has been possessed on his will by an extremely powerful evil spirit for so long that it is almost impossible to discern the difference between the two. It was later revealed that he was a serial killer that took many innocent lives with his powers for years, and almost killed Hyun-ji for attempting to reveal his motives. Before possessing Hye-sung, the spirit had tried to possess the young Bong-pal, and the fragment of the spirit that remains in Bong-pal is the reason he can see ghosts. Fearing a ritual weapon that can destroy him, and the spirit that possesses him, Hye-sung has stalked Bong-pal for years and was responsible for the death of his parents.

People around Bong-pal[edit]

A 55-year-old Buddhist monk, he has been Bong-pal's spiritual protector since childhood, and was responsible for casting out the spirit that had tried to possess him.

Bong-pal's father, in possession of a ritual weapon that can destroy the spirit, has been running from the evil spirit since encountering it again at Bong-pal's high school graduation. Believing that his father has abandoned him, Bong-pal is estranged from his father, unaware that he has been trying to protect him by leading the spirit away from him.

Bong-pal's mother, a powerful medium, refused to allow an evil spirit to possess her son. In vengeance the spirit manifested itself as a black mist and pushed her into the path of a car that killed her. Part of Bong-pal's trauma is his seeing her at her funeral and her ascension.
