Part 2 of my 10 upcoming S.Korean dramas/thriller to watch out for. For part 1 Click Here. Hope you enjoy.
Sounds like this could be a really good suspense/mystery film. Reading the plot you can be almost guaranteed that the film will have some clever twists and turns.
Sang-woo survived a car explosion. He lost his memory but he was able to return to a normal life thanks to his wife Yoon-hee who takes care of him with devotion. However, Sang-woo starts to feel alienated from himself in the past and the ‘him’ his wife talks about. He starts getting suspicious. He also finds out his wife was having an affair and becomes obsessed with finding out about his past. A man starts to follow his steps and Sang-woo is even more confused. ‘What kind of a person was I in the memories lost?’ The shocking truth is revealed.
The film follows two guys called Painter and Driver. I am not sure if they are cops or are just out for revenge. They spend their days dealing with scum and they are in pursuit of a evil murderer, or a serial-killer.
When they meet an Estonian girl, some flirting starts to happen it sparks some jealously from an off-duty American soldier, and things don’t end too pretty.
The film was shot in both S.Korea and Estonia. More to follow on this film as it is announced.
The film focuses on two gang members, these guys are known as “dogs”. They target Koreans who are on holiday abroad, kidnap them and kill them without any guilt or remorse.
When one of them is thrown out of the gang, he then goes rouge and decides to kidnap someone by himself for his own sadistic pleasure. The mother of the person he has just kidnapped tracks down the gang he used to be with to find out where her son is and get him back.
The kidnapper and the kidnapped have a lot more in common than they might think, and things start to become very complicated.
The vibe that I am getting from this film is that it is not suited for everyone. Chances are though, if you’re here reading about new South Korean movies then you probably like your films a little bit different.
The film revolves around a detective called Yoon Ji-wook. The man is an absolute legendary cop and is hugely respected by the force. He is also feared by the criminal underworld and known for brutal and relentless take-downs of criminal gangs
Yoon Ji-wook has a secret though, he has wanted to be woman since he has been a teenager but is frightened to do or say anything because of his reputation with the police force.
When he finally gets the balls, (excuse the pun) he makes the decision to go for the sex change operation. But before he can do anything, a gang that Yoon Ji-wook took down is back, and closing-in. They will stop at nothing until Yoon Ji-wook is dead…he will stop at nothing to become a woman.
The film is listed for release in 2014 so I am sure it is available right now for rent/purchase/stream.
The reviews I have read have said that the film does an awesome job at making the viewer feel uncomfortable …so you have been warned.
This is a film that I have been keeping a close eye on. The film is going to be in 2 parts, and is animated…but don’t let that put you off – Seoul Station sounds like a really good thriller/horror
The story of a viral outbreak that starts with a homeless man in the tunnels of Seoul Train Station and starts to rapidly spread through the city
The first part will deal with the infection and quarantine. The second part (pretty sure it will be called Busan Bound) will be about a train full of infected, flesh eating zombie passengers on route to Busan.
Really looking forward to this..hopefully there is not much of a wait for the second part.
Thanks for reading
