On October 17, from 3:00pm – 5:00pm, we will be watching the pilot episode of “Bring It On, Ghost.”  Park Bong-Pal has grown up with the ability to see and touch ghosts.  In need of extra cash, he uses his ability to fight and exorcise ghosts.  While on the job one night, he meets the ghost of high school student Kim Hyun-Ji.  Believing Bong-Pal holds the answers to why she is a ghost, Hyun-Ji weasels her way into his life, and they end up teaming up as ghost fighting partners who, naturally, begin to catch feelings for one another.  But that’s not the only thing they catch as they discover that they are being stalked by a malevolent spirit who might have had a hand in causing Hyun-Ji’s death as well as in giving Bong-Pal his abilities.  Join us for some spooks and laughs in this paranormal cohabitation comedy as we celebrate the Halloween season.
