THE new Disney+ Ok-drama, Kiss Sixth Sense, landed on the channel on Could 25. Directed by Nam Ki-hoon, the sequence stars Yoon Kye-sang, Search engine marketing Ji-hye, Kim Ji-suk, and Hwang Bo-ra. It consists of 12 episodes, every lasting round an hour, and relies on Gatnyeo’s webtoon of the identical identify.
The story begins with Hong Ye-Sool (Search engine marketing Ji-hye) the just lately promoted chief of an promoting company. Proper initially, earlier than we get to discover her life at work, we get an intriguing scene by which she predicts the beginning of a rain bathe, and claims it’s her sixth sense. It nearly looks as if everybody round her is conscious of her ‘capacity’.
Nonetheless, we discover out Ye-sool’s precise capacity is that at any time when her lips come into contact with one other individual’s pores and skin, she sees their future. An inside monologue then reveals Ye-sool’s previous revealing that her capacity started when she was a baby and touched the hand of her dying father. Since then, every kiss provides her a imaginative and prescient of what’s going to occur. Ye-Sool experiences a imaginative and prescient of herself in a passionate second along with her mentor, Cha Min- Hu (Yoon Kye-sang) after accidently kissing him.
And, whereas we largely observe Ye-sool on her path of dealing with this future future as we share her perception and visions, there’s something odd about Min-hu’s behaviour as properly, implying that he, too, has a sixth sense equally triggered by a kiss.
The connection between these two, and the dramas and misunderstandings brought on by Ye-sool’s capacity, make up the majority of the sequence. The primary few episodes of Kiss Sixth Sense are completely different from the same old Korean dramas, however I don’t suppose they depart sufficient of an impression for viewers to be enthusiastic for extra.
A number of the ‘dramatic’, conflict-filled conditions seem overdone. We are able to solely hope that the plot improves by the sequence’ finish. Regardless of the weak plotline, I have to admit that the 2 leads’ chemistry is nice. Though I have to confess that the repeated glimpses of her imaginative and prescient of them collectively within the first two episodes is the principle motive why I need to see them extra. The drama is way from good, however I’m hooked for now.
Disney+’s makes an attempt to penetrate the Ok-drama market have largely faltered. Kiss Sixth Sense is its most interesting try but, however whether or not it lives as much as the hype or squanders this potential is anybody’s guess at this stage.
New episodes of Kiss Sixth Sense can be found to stream on Disney+ each Wednesday.
