True to its genre.

It has a right amount of creepy, revenge, eerie, and suspense. However, this was quite hard to understand as the way the timeline was set all wrong. The audience was never told how much time had passed and sometimes I wondered to myself if the scene was a flashback, a nightmare or reality. I came for Son Ye-jin, and I can assure you that I only stayed because of her. I think the script was written well, but the execution in terms of editing and prioritizing scenes was messed-up. The characters were hard to tell apart at first, but I eventually got used to it. The plot was VERY unpredictable; the build-up dragged a lot but the ending was semi worth it. The build-up also did not do some of the characters justice in terms of the screen time each of them deserved. Overall, do not reccomend.

We lack proper setup for the characters, we're dumped right into the story and it's all over the place. I know it's kind of the point as we are led through past and present in a quest for information, but I found it a bit odd.

The script is needlessly convoluted (but kinda neat sometimes to be honest) and also hella bleak, which makes for a weird experience.

But it managed to win me over with an engaging performance by the lead played by Son Ye-jin, and interesting editing.

I'm kind of expecting more with Korean thrillers to be honest. The directing was… uneven.

More focus on the characters and why I should care, please.
