Black (2017)

They say your heart recognizes the one you want to be with. – Han Moo Gang.


Black is the story of a grim reaper who is forced to track down his fugitive partner. In the process, he uncovers the truth about a series of cold case murders from 20 years ago. Investigating the murders complicates the reaper’s primary role of guiding the deceased to their respective afterlife, especially after he falls in love with a mortal woman – which leads him to break supernatural rules against involvement in human affairs.

  • Lack of chemistry between the female lead and the male lead.
  • Song Seung Heon is amazing.
  • I’m not impressed with Go Ara’s acting, I find her character annoying!
