The Best Story

A creatively titled drama is always hard to ignore. Topping it off, the synopsis makes you just watch it right away. At first, this looks like it’s all about the main character.

Adapted from the webtoon of the same name, let’s Fight Ghost is the latest Netflix Thai Drama ascending the popularity chart among the latest Thai shows.

Although horror-comedy isn’t the most unique concept in Asian dramas, the hype it created during the past few months tempted me to watch it anyway.
