Due to her unique sixth sense, Yu-ri (Son Ye-jin) is unable to live a normal life and lives completely alone and isolated from love. Jo-gu (Lee Min-ki), who is a poor street magician, meets Yu-ri during one of his performances and the two develop a magic horror show which becomes a huge hit. After a string of successful shows, Jo-gu begins to fall for Yu-ri and becomes more and more interested in her hidden secret. But, their sweet dating affair quickly takes a horrific turn once Yu-ri’s ghostly companions start getting in the way of their romance. Although threatened and terrified, Jo-gu cannot give up his growing interest in Yu-ri and is left to fight against the mysterious curse upon her. (Credit: CJ CGV)
