The Guest (Korean Drama) is a Must-Watch

Annyeong! ๐Ÿค—Oh wow, coming off from a successful run, The Guest is truly such a delight to watch. It's another feat for a Korean drama to deliver this amazing take on classic story of exorcism and possessions. It's sooooh good (with perfect story, production, casts, acting, and soundtrack) that I feel I can make my friends and family watch it, even those who are not into KDrama. I’m so affected, involved, scared and everything in between. It evokes all sorts of emotions to make you truly invested in each and every one of them.

Dream Team (Kim Dong Wook, Jung Eun Chae and Kim Jae Wook)

The drama features Kim Jae Woo as Father Mateo.  Kim Dong Wook as Hwa Pyung, and Jung Eun Chae as Detective Kang Gil Young. It's a complex drama as expected with exorcism, shamans and possessions. Dark, dreary, suspenseful, scary and still heartwarming. It helps that they have such strong support group that rally behind their cause and cushions their sadness. Though, I feel it's weaker for Father Mateo, so I'm happy to see that he warmed up to the team. Personally, watching this reinforces my Catholic Faith.

More so, the guest stars and everyone else are as amazing. It's so very well played and acted, during all their struggles and when they were possessed. It's thoroughly believable. Their acting speaks so much than any effects. Plus, there's Heo Yool, who is so equally adorable and lovable in Mother.

This drama also reunites Kim Jae Wook and Kim Dong Wook from their Coffee Prince stints.  Hmmm, maybe Yoon Eun Hye reunion with Kim Jae Wook can work too. I need a romcom after this. And I badly need Kim Jae Wook to do another drama that he finally gets the girl.

I haven't seen Kim Dong Wook outside of Coffee Prince, but I like that he owned Hwa Pyun. Yes, he's dejected, but he has a sincere intent to change and to heal. He's not some petty, oversensitive albeit sometimes careless hero. He's passionate, but grounded more often than not.

Remember them
This is also my first time watching Jung Eun Chae. She's so pretty. She pulled off the sassiness and the heart required. I love her.

Outside of the drama, with their behind the scenes, there so much camaraderie in play. Can we have The Guest 2 , please drama gods?!
