[Drama 2019] Catch The Ghost, 유령을 잡아라

Recommended Posts

One thing that I really can never understand is how MR refused to investigate YJ’s disappearance. I am not sure how the English subs is, but basically she is saying wait till a body showed up, right? I mean, you’re supposed to investigate disappearance and prevent the death. That is what YR is requesting. She is saying that her sister is missing and please find her, dead or alive, I assume. So yeah, it’s super difficult for me to empathize MR.

Hello, I’ve been enjoying the Kdrama Catch the Ghost and the acting and chemistry by the actors. I don’t comment much but I'd like to chime in on the character Yoo Ryung from the drama that I posted elsewhere and add it to the discussion here.

 

I adore Yoo Ryung and how empathetic she is to the victims. She is righteous at heart and sincerely wants to help the victims. She prioritizes the victims over herself, which is truly selfless. 

 

Honestly, if Yoo Ryung didn’t care about the victims and their families, it would be so easy for her to just give in to protocols and orders. I mean, she’s not doing what she does because she wants to go against orders. Yoo Ryung is intelligent and even knows all the ins-and-outs of the subway system. There’s nothing for her to gain by not following protocol, but be reprimanded and risk losing her job.  She’s doing it because the victims’ well-being and safety are of utmost priority to her even more than herself.

 

I found it completely corrupt and sick, especially as a female viewer, at how the PR officer would rather bury the domestic violence crime that was caught on record of the subway ambassador just because of the negative impact that it would have on the image of the Subway Police. This is true corruption at its very best, which is very much present in the real world. People care more about maintaining image and their job security over punishing actual crimes and having crimes go unpunished, especially if it pertains to someone who has power. This kind of corruption is present in any field or industry.. going with the flow.. not wanting to rock the boat in fear of retaliation.

 

I mean if it wasn’t for Yoo Ryung, the domestic violence victim would’ve continued to be physically and emotionally abused regardless by her fiancé and future husband; the victim would’ve ended up like her fiancé’s ex-girlfriend.. dead. Victims often blame themselves and can’t escape the abuse because they believe it’s their fault. I found it particularly moving when Yoo Ryung went to speak with the victim in front of her house, and shared her personal story of being able to relate to how lonely it must feel to live without a family. Yoo Ryung knew very well the dangerous situation the victim was in by living with her abuser, and how nothing would bring back the victim even if justice was served. It shows how much Yoo Ryung cares about the victim to reach out to her and offer Yoo Ryung’s house to live together as a family. For real, how many people would actually offer someone whom they’ve just met to live in their house and help them escape danger. That’s a true sweetheart.

 

Yoo Ryung has done so much good with her compassion and empathy for the victims.. even if it may seem rash because her actions may not follow protocol. She knows very well how it feels to feel helpless, especially when the police who the victims are supposed to rely on don’t even attempt to help them. Ma Ri should’ve looked into Yoo Jin’s case even if there was no body found. Even in episode one, Major Crimes and Cyber Police blatantly ignored the rape claim as a prank and wouldn’t even look into the case unless a crime was already committed. The lady who was drugged would’ve just been helpless and ended up raped and psychologically damaged for the rest of her life. The flyer lady would’ve mourned the death of her father. The wife and her young son would’ve permanently lost their father.

 

I also agree that it’s utterly abhorrent to ever say that someone deserves any kind of abuse, especially when the person is just trying to help the victims. It wasn’t rash for Yoo Ryung to offer help and empathize with the victim who also is without a family, and is left in a dangerous situation living together with her domestic violence abuser. It takes compassion, empathy, and courage to do that.

 

This is an extreme example that’s not related to the characters in this Kdrama but just because your superior tells you to do something doesn’t mean it should always be obeyed. During the Holocaust, Hitler and his minion army superiors ordered German soldiers and civilians to do countless acts of indecencies that were just blatantly followed. The real heroes then were the ones who knew that what they were asked to do wasn’t right and stood up for their principles.

 

Following orders, especially those by one’s superior, is not hard. It only becomes difficult when you want to help others before yourself. Even at the disciplinary meeting, I’m glad Yoo Ryung said if she were in the same situation again that she would’ve done the same thing, and saved someone’s life rather than blatantly follow orders in fear of disciplinary action. Even if I were in her shoes, I wouldn’t be able to live with knowing that someone died because I was too afraid of being disciplined or lose my job. 

 

Yoo Ryung also has nothing to lose because she has lost everything dear to her, which was her sister who was unjustly taken from her without any serious investigation taken by the police, who ironically are supposed to bring “justice.” It takes courage and bravery to do what Yoo Ryung does. It’s easy to follow orders if you don’t care about the victims’ well-being and are more concerned about yourself. I mean who wants to be scolded for not following orders and be put in danger. It’s because Yoo Ryung is righteous and her heart is in the right place.

 

The synopsis of the drama from the beginning is about opposite characters in Yoo Ryung and Ji Seok who learn how to complement each other. I’m glad to see a strong female lead character who lives with her heart in order to seek justice. 

I also hope Yoo Ryung eventually finds out about Ji Seok’s financial difficulties, so that she could help him with it. I mean she fixed up the motor bike with her own money. 

This may be a spoiler from episode six but Yoo Ryung is trying to distance herself from Ji Seok because she cares for him and doesn’t want to endanger him as she seeks justice to undercover what happened to her missing sister and catch the Subway Ghost. She knows it’s a dangerous undertaking which is why she asked to switch partners the following day right after the night when she had that scary encounter with the Subway Ghost alone in the subway station.

 

I’m glad that the show is making us think about how different circumstances can shape people in different ways. I also wish people on the internet in general would think twice before leaving comments that they would be ashamed of leaving if it wasn’t for the anonymity of the internet, especially comments made by female viewers in regards to serious issues such as domestic violence and abuse. Abuse shouldn’t be condoned and corruption should not persist. Also, it would be nice to have a supportive discussion on the drama as the actors and staff worked hard for several months to produce an enjoyable drama for us :)

You dont know I fell in love with your post. Especially the end part of your statement. Because I saw a lot of comments in other sites stating how they did not like YRs character and is annoyed by her actions. But I totally agree with all you said. Why do they react like shes the first character who did the same when this is kdramaland. How many other stories have the ML be the one to always take action for the FL? For once, the FL is the one who knows shes in danger and is taking action on her own and does not rely entirely on her ML? I dont know, I just love these two.

@moonie i'm also agree with what @MeToo said. Many negatif comments about YR act about Hye Jin case. It's not like this is the first character woman who act reckless. But YR characters got many negatif comments. But in my pov, this story line good enough, and not annoying. It's so much more enjoying, because many genres aspect included. I just hope my heart will stay calm when this drama in climax. You know i ship YR and JS, more so over to MGY and KSH. Hahah. So prepare my heart for jealousy theme. And pretend like i don't like but i love you. Hope there will enough hugs, kissess, and holding hand. Fighting.

Hii ! I agree with you on all points about women empowerment. However, eventhough I appreciate the efforts made by the character, I am extremely annoyed with her actions and I can't help it. Justice and actions must be taken, but she doesn't give a richard simmons at all about her Chief and what he is facing because of her. You can't just be nice to the victims, you need to do the right thing for everyone or at least face the consequences, take responsability. When the Chief suffered a pay cut or when he went to the loan sharks, she should at least ask him about his financial situation, offer help or give him the pay check he had cut as who didn't play by the book was her. You can't throw off people under a train (put them in danger or in a bad situation) just because you think the rules or the way actions are taken are wrong. If everybody did that, society would be more of a chaos, more justice would be made by civilians. Rules exist because they are needed. We can't trust that everyone has a good way of judging others.

Anyway.. I guess that, from Yoo's character itself, I just expected more empathy from her, more caring about who's around her, because they are the people that are helping her clean her mess and who care about her. She is being selfish with her coworkers, basically doing wrong to them as some people have done to her, and for me that's contradictory. 

And I don't think some cute couple scenes can make this go away

@crisKdrama hear hear! Exactly my thinking too. She's annoying me for her lack of concern for her colleagues. She's very blinkered at the moment. Luckily I don't think it'll go that dark but her recklessness would end up getting one of her colleagues killed out seriously injured. But my girl needs to stop throwing poor chief under the bus. If she finds out his backstory maybe her eyes will open and the blinkers will fall off.

Catch the Ghost is my favourite weekend drama. I love the pace. I adore the two leads. Just caught EP 5 and I loved it. It was way better than last week's episodes. The 'Avocado' mystery seems intriguing. Looking forward to Ep 6 but I am stalling, I don't want to finish it. 

 

Amazing acting by the leads. My heart broke when the Chief was in the ring with that domestic abuser/ murderer. The way he got hit, I just couldn't watch him getting hit. The two partners really suit each other so I hope they get the idea of switching partners out of their heads. The four of them make a great team, balancing, complementing each other. 

 

I do feel for the other lady police officer, but she left it too late and the last train's already left the station. Chief's already in too deep with his newbie partner, although he doesn't seem to be aware of his feelings at the moment. Off to watch the next Ep.

 

P.S. I love the OST of the drama. After a long time, I found a drama where all the songs are just amazing!
