The MBC Saturday and Sunday drama ‘From Now On, Showtime!’ (also known as Showtime Begins1) grabbed the top rank in the popular OTT TV Show (Viu) in Greater China, with two episodes left to air. It’d also been pre-sold to over 190 countries’ OTT media services.
The series is a romantic comedy starring Cha Cha-woong (Park Hae-jin), a magician and ghost employer, and Go Seul-hae (Jin Ki-joo), a passionate but hot-blooded female police officer with supernatural abilities.
Cha Cha-woong, a well-known charming magician, and Go Seul-hae, a pious and dedicated police officer. The love tale of Choi Gum, the Cha Cha-woong family’s general deity, the three ghosts (Jeong Seok-yong, Ko Gyu-pil, and Park Seo-yeon) recruited by Cha Cha-woong, and Lee Yong-ryeol, the youngest cop in the police, are all entwined here.
The story of the Magic Factory’s eldest brother, Sang-gun Nam, and his family is revealed in the past episodes, as Choi Gum and the three ghosts plan to achieve Buddhahood together.
Following Cha Woong’s confession with the ring, Cha Woong and Seul Hae, who had been neglecting each other for the sake of the general god Choi Gum, who delays succession, are becoming closer despite their will. However, Yong-ryeol and Ye-Ji, the ‘Yong-Ji pair,’ suffer opposition from Yong-ryeol’s mother, and they are on the verge of divorce.
Members of the Magic Factory’s trio of ghosts, Dong-Cheol and Reum, are ready to get their wishes granted. Everyone chooses to depart together after watching Dong-soul cheol’s wedding, but Cha-woong is already afraid. Cha Woong was put in a position to live as a magician without ghosts as the long-awaited succession of the best sword approached. What’s worse, the separation with the three spirits who resemble family is nearing.
When Choi Gum and Cha Woong find that the terrible demon Hae Cheon Mu, whom they thought had been sealed, is still around, they get serious.
The story of Haecheonmu’s imminent evil, the three ghosts preparing to become Buddhas, the three ghosts about to break up with Cha-woong, and the Ji-ji couple’s unexpected breakup is increasing viewers’ curiosity for the upcoming episodes.
