Oh My Ghostess Plot: What is it about?
Na Bong-sun is a timid girl who works as a chef at a hotel. She has always been someone who has no faith in her abilities, has low self-confidence and is passive. A big-time introvert, she has difficulty in voicing her opinions and is easily intimidated by others. She is also messy at work, not because of lack of skill, but only because of her anxious nature. However, Bong-sun has a supernatural gift passed on to her by her shaman grandmother, that is, an ability to see ghosts. She has always kept this a secret.
Kang Sun-woo is the head chef at the restaurant where Bong-sun works. He is an ambitious and confident young guy who strives for perfection. This makes him quite skeptical and rude when things don’t go according to his expectations at the hotel. Bong-sun has a crush on him but has never in her wildest dreams thought of asking him out. To add to that, Sun-woo constantly gives her a hard time for her frequent mess-ups and mistakes at the restaurant. Bong-sun is thus living a rather miserable and boring life.
Shin Soon-ae is a ghost who is trying hard to go to the afterlife but is stuck. She believes that the lack of romance in her life and the fact that she died a virgin is a reason why she cannot move on. She spends her time possessing women and sleeping around with men in a hope to escape.
Soon-ae one day, coincidentally, comes face to face with Bong-sun, and instead of just passing by, Bong-sun stops and apologizes to her for blocking her path. Soon-ae doesn’t understand how Bong-sun could see her. She now decides that Bong-sun is the perfect woman for her. She can become her ideal vessel and help her escape this world and head to the afterlife.
As soon as Soon-ae possesses Bong-sun, her personality changes radically. She becomes confident, spontaneous and dynamic. The unforeseen difference in her attitude puzzles her colleagues. Sun-woo is also surprised by this sudden change and is fascinated by Bong-sun. Bong-sun struggles to keep Soon-ae out, often fighting with her, but to no avail.
Eventually, however, Soon-ae realizes Bong-sun’s feelings for Sun-woo and promises to help her get him. As time goes on, Bong-sun’s awesome new personality makes Sun-woo get closer to her. He eventually falls for her. Bong-sun realizes that Sun-woo might be falling for her only because of Soon-ae and she is not who Sun-woo thinks her to be.
This makes her feel terrible about playing this game and she reveals the truth to Sun-woo. Sun-woo is dumbfounded and cannot believe Bong-sun. Meanwhile, Sun-woo’s brother in law, in reality, is possessed by a dark spirit. He tries to kidnap Bong-sun who is rescued heroically, thanks to a child ghost that she summons. As the evil spirit is defeated, Soon-ae realizes that the same spirit had murdered her and the real reason why she could not escape was not the lack of romance but the lack of justice.
