YMMV / The Bongcheon-Dong Ghost

Go To

  • Designated Hero: It's kinda hard to feel sorry for the protagonist of the second short, since he (and his online friends) make fun of the ghost lady at first (he mistakes her for an inebriated woman). Though the protagonist gets points for showing genuine concern for her when she accidentally bashes her head against a wall and starts bleeding, the same can't be said about the aforementioned online friends, who still make jokes about it.
  • Narm:
    • In the first one, the ghost pouncing on the girl can be shocking at first, but the sound effect as this happens sounds like a burp rather than a scream or roar like you'd expect from this type of scare.
    • The second comic's jump scare is a bit shocking at first, but keeps repeating, and ends up comical.
  • Nightmare Fuel: The atmosphere, the shock, her speed, her face, the lack of protection from the fourth wall...
    • Imagine being forcibly dragged toward train tracks, and getting graphically injured by the ghost that's pulling you upon trying to resist. This makes subsequent rereadings of the second comic pretty uncomfortable, to say the least.
    • Third comic: even if the child ghost wasn't featured, the fact that the train seemingly enters a neverending, hellish tunnel and all of the passengers mysteriously end up dead is terrifying in itself. And just like the first, The Fourth Wall Will Not Protect You is fully in effect.
