Ahn is cheerful, firm, funny, and also brave, and represents a strong female character that is not easily seen in most Korean novels, She exorcises evil spirits and phantoms with a plastic knife and BB gun and runs around in platform slippers. When she is in a rush, her stockings are torn. She also listens to the concerns of students and guides those who may go astray with her own method. While punishing severely those who abuse their power and monsters who hurt humans, she consoles the spirits with engaging stories. She is not passive but independent, not sentimental but sensitive. Her fatal attractions are the ectoplasm that leads the whole story.
