"Hallucinations and nightmares torment up-and-coming young author Min Woo (Gang Dong Won). He cannot concentrate on his new work, the much-anticipated follow-up to his first successful novel, nor can he lead a normal life. Old photos and images he does not recognize - though they are somehow familiar - materialize from the darkness as if developed in a darkroom. Haunted by these spectres of memories he can't remember, he drags himself through read moredays of confusion and alienation. Mimi (Lee Yeon Hee), a beautiful young woman, follows him around like one completely lost in love. As Mimi intones the notes of "Mist" (popular song from 1960's) for him, long-ago recollections sparkle in the darkness of his mind as if illuminated by flashbulbs. Flickering memories of his first love claim his concentration, calling for him to remember."

I'm fascinated in Kang Dong Won performance in every movie I came across to see. Although not all his movies have outstanding plot unfortunately.

This movie shows that time spent with person who we loved is most precious and even because of time passing by and those memories will eventually fade away that person will haunt us in our dreams. How can we tell the difference between reality and the dream when read more the dream is a place with our beloved person. I think this movie tells us that...

M is a film which some people will love and some will hate. It's really complex to describe. I must admit that on the visual site this move is just great, all the twist in the plot and all strange conversation gave me goosebumps. I was so curious how this story would end. I was pleased with the ending, it was good, it explained all the crazy stuff that were going on in the movie. Actually it was a little sad and beautiful in the same time. Music was good, but not so memorable to recommend, although all the background sounds that were in the movie, were perfect fit for the story and it gave it soul.

If you like Kang Dong Won as I do, this movie is a must see, but if you don't it will bored you and annoy you. Re-watch value in this kind of movie I think none.

This movie moves like an anime. Its colors, exaggerated movements, the use of colors and sounds were inspired by animes.
The film separates what is real and what is not. Min Woo's schizophrenia have been shown well, implied, with storytelling style which makes "M" a good story. Weakness was the climax of the movie. It's not very exciting. Otherwise a medium movie.

    Seems like an interesting movie, but I could only find incomplete copies of it online---making it a bit confusing. But from what I gathered, the movie has a unique premise.

      any luck finding a full copy? The gooddrama link below doesn't work anymore, and the title is extremely not google-friendly.

      Oh, that's a start, I can at least check if it's worth looking for a physical copy if everything else fails. Thanks :)
      By the way, I can see now it's available on Dramafever in some regions, in case someone else wanted to watch it.

    The most strange Korean movie I have ever watched ... I give 9 points ... I wanted to applaud almost every scene in the movie...

    It's first time when I want to make review but my English is not perfect unfortunately.

    and i was very surpsrised by such an artistic movie
    it was really interesint how the scenes where displayed
    all these mirrors and everything really fascinating when you're getting the hang of it

    Kang Dong Woo just never fail me with his performances at all. The film was not thriller as I thought it would be, suspense was totally killed off which bothered me a little. But overall, it kept me following what's happening even with some predictable events, this film was a good ride. I liked it.

    Another one of those movies that will only appeal to a select group. It's not a thriller as one may think. Even the revelation may not do it for some. As for me, I enjoyed it for how the director took a concept many are able to relate to and made art out of it. It will turn off suspense junkies. But for those who like reading into films and finding the meaning behind it, it will be memorable.

    I love KDW and he is the only reason I watched this movie. I keep yawning and didn't understand a thing with the first hour so I ended up fast forwarding. I guess my love for him is not enough to push myself to watch a boring movie :/
