Do you like food and ghosts? Well then Oh My Ghost is the perfect show for you! Or does that seem like a weird combination? Well in that case you might not be able to stomach this one.

Oh My Ghost is Netflix’s most recent comedy/drama series and it’s quite good to be honest. The story-line may not seem like much, but it’s lighthearted and easy enough to watch.

What’s it about? We have two female leads. Khaopun (Keerati Mahapreukpong) is the ghost of a young girl. She doesn’t really remember how she died, but she does know that she’s never had sex. Which is weird, yes but give me a minute. She’s desperate to sleep with someone so that she can cross over (because without doing the do she apparently can’t). So, she possesses young girls quite often in the hopes of seducing men to finally give her what she wants. However, when a spirit is near, the temperatures drop too low and the men end up getting hypothermia. Isn’t that sad? Give the woman what she wants!

Anyway, our other female lead is Jiew (Nuengthida Sophon), she’s a low-level chef at a very upscale restaurant. But she doesn’t do much in the kitchen, save for washing and chopping up vegetables. She also writes an anonymous blog where she puts up recipes. However, she’s extremely shy and doesn’t voice her opinion often. Her personality holds her back from rising through the ranks and becoming a top chef. Chef Artit (Arak Amornsupasiri) owns the restaurant she works at. He’s passionate and has a deep love for noodles, so far that he’s banned rice from his premises. Jiew has a crush on him, but she would never breathe a word of it. Artit finds the recipes she posts online and appreciates them but doesn’t know it’s his own Jiew who writes them.

Khaopun possesses Jiew’s body and things start getting hilarious. Khaopun is brave and outspoken. She does her best to get what she wants. She’s not one back down easily. Even though Jiew and Khoapun are on extreme ends of the spectrum in terms of persona, its fun watching them interact. They make a great team. Jiew goes back to the restaurant after possession and shows the boys exactly what’s up. She becomes badass.

Eventually though the inevitable love triangle comes up – Jiew, Khaopun and Artit. Whose heart will be broken? Watch the show to find out!

In all honesty, it’s fun to watch. The show isn’t overly predictable and leaves room for improv. Characters are well written and have great chemistry. They make a wonderful team on screen. The writing isn’t cheesy enough to make you vomit at the back of your throat, but cheesy enough to make you go aww at all the right moments. Give it a shot, it’s be worth your time!
