THE GUEST (K-drama 2018)w


“Twenty years ago, Yoon Hwa Pyung (Kim Dong-Wook), a young psychic born into a shaman family, learns about the powerful demon called “Son” (Guest). The demon possesses the power to control other demons and allow them to possess weak people. The possessed people then go mad, kill their families, and stab themselves in the eye. Hwa Pyung, Choi Yoon (Kim Jae-Wook); a young boy born in a religious Catholic family, and Kang Kil Yeong (Jung Eun-Chae); the daughter of a detective, fatefully meet when their families are killed by a demon.

Twenty years later, the demon killings started again. Hwa Pyung is now a taxi driver who uses his power to seek out possessed people in order to help them, Yoon is a Catholic priest who is talented in exorcism, and Kil Yeong is a detective who doesn’t believe in ghosts. The trio meets again and tries to work together to defeat “Son”.”

I avoided watching this drama at night because I have even dreamt of it. Either I was deeply immersed in the story or a ghost is following me. Kidding aside, Guest seems so real and believable, it will scare you and call God’s help to defeat the dreadful antagonist who is a strong demon that possesses and control people with weak spirits.  At the moment, you will swear to yourself never to become a victim.

The plot is amazing, no dull moment of each episode.  The priest is so hot, the psychic is annoyingly cool and the detective stands up for all women to be brave. Such combined characters make the team surprisingly entertaining despite the darkness of horror is clearly exhibited.

So how did they fight the demon? hands off, you better watch it.

Verdict: 9.5/10
