A flippant and street-smart detective teams up with a withdrawn psychic-medium to face the spirit of a murderer who died two decades ago. Through Hong Seung Jong (Go Joon Hee), Detective Kang Pil Sung discovers the world of wandering spirits and spirit possession.

5. Black

Black, OCN’s fantasy-detective story, opens a supernatural world where grim reapers and a death-seeing woman are set to co-exist. Watching Black makes you feel exhausted in the process, but remaining steadfast in uncovering the pieces of the mystery would be the viewer’s end game.

Black currently streams on Netflix.

6. Tale of Arang

Prep yourself with a drama-watching experience that feels like joining the Amazing Race. Prepare to meet ghosts, Jade Emperor, humans, Hades, Grim Reaper and Heavenly-Fairy-turned-she-Voldemort which moves to the slowly set pit stops before finally arriving at a momentous conclusion that sort of apologized for the dallying first half of the series.

Although Tale of Arang showed languid episode movements, it sustained a convincing closure that made it escaped a drama disappointment tag. Watch it on Netflix.

Finally, brave yourself with the terrifying presence of Park Il Do.

7. The Guest
