It is recommended that you read both Webtoons before looking at the trope list.'''²²The ''Bongcheon-Dong Ghost'' is a short horror [[KoreanWebtoons Korean Webtoon]] about a nameless girl walking home after a late-night study session who meets a strange woman in the street. It doesn't go very smoothly...²²Based on a "true story" and a Korean urban legend. It was written by HORANG and can be read [[ here in English]].²²There exists a 'prequel' ([[ here]], also in English) about a boy who has a similar experience with another strange (but completely unrelated) woman. There is also a third [[ entry]] in the series, about a girl experiencing a supernatural haunting during a train ride, and a [[ fourth installment]] about a taxi driver listening to a girl's account regarding a game she played in school.²----²!!Tropes:²²* CreepyMonotone: From the ghost women.²* DrivenToSuicide: How the first ghost woman died.

However, it could also be taken as a DownerEnding, given that the ghost [[WhamShot appears in a patient's room.]]]]²* TheHeroDies: In the second comic. [[spoiler:People believe that they were lovers who committed suicide together, but further investigation reveals that they were unrelated]].²* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: The protagonist of the second short makes fun of the ghost lady at first, but then starts to feel concerned for her when he sees her [[spoiler:get her head bashed against a wall and then subsequently fall onto the train tracks]].²* MamaBear: She's just looking for her baby...²* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: [[spoiler: Turns out the second woman is being brutally beaten by an invisible hand as it struggles to drag her into the tracks.]]²** [[spoiler: The child ghost kills all of the passengers by stabbing them to death.

The same hand pops up and presumably does the same thing to the poor guy.]] ²* StringyHairedGhostGirl: Ghost woman.²* TooDumbToLive: The main character of the second comic; see a creepy looking lady moving in a really weird manner? Clearly she must be drunk out of her mind! You should laugh at her with your internet friends!²* TheUndead: The ghost women. Sort of ghosts, sort of zombies.²* VeryLooselyBasedOnATrueStory: Based on "true personal accounts" and an urban legend.²* WhamLine: From the first comic: [[spoiler:"SHE WASN'T THERE!" (''cue JumpScare'')]]²* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: The first ghost lady. She committed suicide after the loss of her baby and walks the afterlife searching for her.
