The show managed to steal hearts within a minimal time. The trio is exceptionally entertaining and they keep a light-hearted funny vibe going on. They have their usual banter, however; they have lots of fun all the time too. The show is an exciting mix of entertainment involving the afterlife, ghosts, and lots of other fun stuff as well. The individual stories are packed with lots of emotions as well.
We learn about Wol Joo, her past, and her current journey. Her prickly appearance conceals a great deal of pain, and we follow her journey of healing and resolution. It’s a worthwhile voyage to take. She’s also a lot of fun and has a large heart.
There is no official announcement for its renewal into a second season yet. And it is unlikely too that there will be any other season too.

She was then targeted by an assassin who later killed her mother instead. Weol-sin ju’s was committing suicide on the Sacred Tree, which caused it to lose its authority over a 100,000-person war.

He has been lonely for a long time and then he meets Wol Joo and begins helping her.
- Choi Won-young plays Chief gwi as well as the Crown Prince
