'Cheo Yong: The Paranormal Detective ' was by far a smooth production. Having been delayed and with news of its exact release date uncertain for quite some time, there were worries over the final result. With the series having started its run on February 9th and three episodes already out, viewers can now be the judge of whether or not the delay was worth it. The fact that this drama has some key differences to OCN's usual slick and stylish offerings is what will make or break the deal for viewers, depending on what it is they like about these types of series.
'Cheo Yong: The Paranormal Detective' opens with the titular character of Yoon Cheo-yong (Oh Ji-ho) being faced with what at the moment seems like an evil spirit or demon, which takes his then partner with him as they fall off a bridge. Fast-forward 7 years and Cheo-yong is working as a small time police officer trying to live a stress-free life. Unfortunately for him, he can see ghosts and they are less than willing to leave him be. After a missing person's case he stumbles upon is found to be related with a series of disappearances, his case crosses with that of Ha Seon-woo (Oh Ji-eun), a junior he seems to have a past with. When he meets Han Na-yeong (Hyosung), the ghost of a student trapped in Seon-woo's police station, he is forced to use his ghost-seeing ability and gets dragged into the case, but also back into his own past and the main plot.
