Movie Info

A budding romance between a girl who can see ghosts and a rising magician yields some supernatural complications in this romantic horror comedy from South Korea. Yeo-ri (Son Ye-jin) has been seeing ghosts for as long as she can remember. When the mischievous specters throw her social life into turmoil, Yeo-ri retreats into solitude until handsome magician Jo-goo (Lee Min-ki) hires her as his assistant. One year later, their act has become a resounding success, yet the apprehensive Yeo-ri still refuses to come out of her shell. Only when Yeo-ri finally reveals her ethereal secret to Jo-goo will she ever have a shot at true love, but even then the selfish phantoms seem intent on keeping her carefully isolated from the realm of the living.

Critic Reviews for Spellbound

All Critics (2) | Top Critics (1)

Although much of the film's broad humor at times makes it feel like an unwanted mash-up of "Scary Movie" and "Date Movie," writer-director Hwang In-ho invests the material with enough clever scenarios to keep it engaging.

An understandable hit in its country, this Korean rom-com/horror film charmingly sneaks its way under your skin.
