Second season of ‘Ghost-Seeing Detective Cheo Yong’ premieres today

cy

OCN is the go-to channel for having your fix for thriller dramas. It has been producing non-stop shows of the genre which are known to be gritty, dark and serious and now it’s bringing one of its hit dramas back with a second instalment — Ghost-Seeing Detective Cheo Yong (or simply Cheo Yong). It stars Oh Ji Oh as the titular detective who has the ability to see ghosts and this helps him to solve cases. In the original run, he was accompanied by fellow female detective (played by Oh Ji Eun, King Of Dramas) and a spirit of a school girl, played by Jun Hyo Sung (of Kpop group Secret). The second season will bring back two out of the three main leads, with Oh Ji Eun’s role being replaced by Ha Yun Joo (It’s Okay, It’s Love) who will be another female detective. I didn’t see the first part. I remember being excited about it but then the mix of busy schedule and late release of subtitles made it something I didn’t give a try. I read mixed reviews (mostly positive) about it but you all who did see this show will have to fill me in about whether you liked it or not. The drama surely looks spooky and thrilling. I don’t know how they will make this season different from the previous one — as it will have the same case-of-the-day scenario. Of course they have tweaked the cast a bit and I’m sure the plot initially had Oh Ji Oh’s character being reluctant to do his work due to some past trauma. Ghost-Seeing Detective Cheo Yong 2 will start airing from today, with a total of 10 episodes running each Sunday. I’m sure the fans must be waiting eagerly for this one!

    Well, I was quite excited about S1 and the 1st ep wasn’t a bad start but… the show just never got off the ground, so to speak. Cheo Yong had most of the normal problems of your typical k-procedural and the acting was SO cringeworthy. I lost interest and dropped it after the first fiew epis.

    Who knows, maybe it’s better the second time around…

      Really! The acting was that bad!! It surely makes the experience worse if other things are also not upto the mark…I think the director and writer are changed for this new season, so maybe it will be better than the first..

        Yup, it was… wooden and stilted with the side of overacting. Besides the female lead was kinda dim and not in an endearing way.

        I can’t muster up interest in S2, but do let us know what you think of it, if you decide to check it out.

      I don’t know the reason behind changing the female lead. I can totally understand how bad it feels when one of the main characters is replaced…I hope if they ever bring season 3, they bring back OJE as well!
