This post was delayed for obvious reasons. We will be back on schedule next Monday. Last week we gave you ten pumpkin haired looks that were hits and misses. This week we’re giving you ten dramas that were positively daunting and just what you need for this Halloween season. We each picked five dramas that we believe would help complete your need for thrills, chills, ghostly and supernatural. You’re welcome!

This one barely constitutes as spooky, as Sugar Baby has told me, but there is something about it that just gives me the creeps. Maybe it was the fact that it basically starts off with a murder. Or maybe it was the serial killer running around. Let’s just say I had more shivers during this than I should and it wasn’t because of the intense sexual chemistry between the leads.
Oh My Ghostess
OMG! This was one of my first dramas that I watched and immediately fell in love. It was creeptastic and all the romantic tension that I tend to love. The ghosts in this was ewww but at the same time, entertaining.
Let’s Fight Ghost
I hated this on first watch. It had reminded me so much of Oh My Ghostess, I wanted to hate it as much as I could. But in the end, I loved it. I loved it for it’s complex ghost story and talk about a spooky villain! The possession here was way more scary than OMG for me. Kwon Yul just has that “imma kill you but be nice about.”
I haven’t technically watched this fully but that’s because it was SCARY (and the female lead can’t act). I knew I wanted to watch because of Kim Jae Wook and I wanted all the Coffee Prince feels, but none of that was here. In its place was scary themes. Maybe I’ll finish it this month.
A Korean Odyssey
This is kinda of perfect to get you in the halloween spirit because it’s filled with spirits. To me it’s like Goblin and Oh My Ghost had a baby. But with a terrible ending. Sorry, not sorry. Either way, if the spirits don’t get you, maybe the zombie girl will.
Sugar Baby’s Picks
The Ghost Detective
Although I didn’t finish this drama, I am still recommending it because I really liked watching the couple of episodes that I did see! I thought it was thrilling and the ghosts were terrifying and for a while I kept seeing the lady in red even after I finished the episodes. I loved that there was a hearing impaired character and the use of the hearing aid to communicate with the ghosts and the flashbacks. I think this drama will definitely add to your Halloween feeling.
I ended up watching this because of Fon and then I realized it was an anthology. Some episodes were really good, while others weren’t as much and that is fine, a lot of people compare it to the Twilight Zone and I can respect that. The last episode used to be a standalone short film so I suggest watching the film vs the episode as the episode chopped a few bits.
Gahhhhh. Still thinking about this drama two years later. I just can’t and will probably never get over this. I went into this drama just expecting to see Taecyeon’s fine ass with NO idea what this shit was about. Each episode made my skin crawl and had my blood boiling. I keep wanting to do a rewatch, but I don’t know if I can put myself through this again.. Man do I love this drama! Sang Mi, YOU FUCKING SUPERSTAR!!
In the same breath of Save Me this drama was absolutely bonkers. It was one of the first Japanese dramas I had ever seen and I don’t regret it at all. Matter of fact, I have noticed that Japanese dramas tend to be way darker than Korean or Chinese dramas and I am 100% okay with that. The twist wasn’t quite as twisty for me but I liked it nonetheless. A few people didn’t like the ending, but I didn’t mind it at all.
The Master’s Sun
I wouldn’t feel complete and content in my heart if I didn’t include this cute fluffy ghostly drama. The whole premise was good and the execution wasn’t bad either but man if I don’t think they could’ve ended this shit three episodes earlier than they did. LOL. Anyways…. 꺼져!!!
