"Blood Rain" on the other hand is a diversion, a film set at the tail-end of medieval Korea surrounding the murder hunt of a serial killer by a govt detective. The murders follow a grim pattern relating to events from 7 years earlier, with each victim being an informant to the execution of a man. The village folk sense revengeful ghosts, and it is up to the detective to prove them right or wrong.

"Is a man without shame even human? Beast."

I love this kind of exchange of dialogues between the protagonist and antagonist, especially in detective movies, it is very manly and have some depths to it. Not all can pull off such impact, with a little bit drama but more combat.

Aside from comedy romantic genres, I love watching detective, history, culture eye candy, and this movie give it all!

Cha Seung Won read more did a great job as detective here as a serious film. and I was only able to get the whole picture almost at the end part, well the usual Asian movie, revealing the whole thing almost at the end. It is very interesting story and they made a good plot, pacing, in the movie. Only that, it is literally raining blood!

It has mixed of superstitious beliefs and so you can appreciate the culture of Korea more.

I like it!

Sageuk, investigation AND Cha Seung Won?! Well, too tempting for me.

Won Kyu (Cha Seung Won) is a young, diligent, upright and idealistic detective. One day he’s sent to an island to investigate an arson case. Given his all to solve the case, much more gets revealed. The young detective finds himself stuck in a serial killing case with grudges, vengeance and superstitions surrounding him. The more he digs, the deeper he read more sinks into the mud of the horrific tale. Though he solves the case and though the world seems fine on the outside, Won Kyu’s world completely alters. His ideals and what he always believed true scatter in front of him. Though living, he’s not alive anymore.
The film is a genuine investigation film set in the 19th century. The plot is well-written and the twists are so interesting. Once Won Kyu takes the case you can’t take your eyes off. The lighting, sounds and effects are awesome. The abominable crime scenes are so realistically depicted I couldn’t but close my eyes. And Cha Seung Won! His superb acting gives the film a different and more fabulous air; biased as I am.

    I was debating on whether to give this movie a 7 or a 6.5, it's still a toss up rating for me. I was invested in the crime solving case - and I was hoping for a good conclusion in the end but it didn't deliver the way I wanted it to, so... that's why my rating isn't real high... I enjoyed Cha Seung Won & Ji Sung in this movie. I just wanted a more solid end. But it was a pretty good crime case chase :P A bit too realistic in the actual crimes (but I can handle that to some extent - and this wasn't that bad). I won't rewatch it however.

      I saw it a very long time ago so I don`t remember precisely but I enjoyed watching. It was quite suspensuful,it had interesting surroundings and some surprising characters. It was not outstanding (otherwise I would have recalled more I believe) but it is definitely worth watching.
