Another interesting perspective on today's use of social media in our everyday lives. While keeping up the intensity of the situation and the mystery behind it this movie does a good job of showing just what online comments look like from an outside perspective and just how dangerous it is to think you can hide behind a screen without realising that once you've said or done something, there's no going back.

The acting was good and the movie was good but when you watch this movie, you already get the message it's trying to put forward so the rewatch value is lacking.

This is a great watch, do not miss it!

The story looks really simple on the surface, but there is so much underneath it. This movie is just much more than showing what social media is and does. But also how people respond do is, there is a great psychological part to this movie.
The story is quite unique, there are a few movies like this, but this is a real thriller that will let you think abbout the effects of social media and how huge the internet is.
The actors did a marvelous job, and they really gave it all. I really could feel with them, and I felt that the emotions were very raw, I liked it!
The music was perfectly chosen, dark and loud.
I would rewatch this movie, because this one has more than meets the eye.

Watch this if you like psychological movies that handle a current topic.
Skip this if you are looking for romance.

This review may contain spoilers
Even though some of you might say that this movie's plot is a little bit "predictable", I still find it innovative.
This review might and will contain spoilers, so don't read it if you didn't watch the movie yet.

The plot might sound and look simple, but it has a huge psychological depth.
Some kids, who is obsessed with social networks and virtual life more than their real one, decide to punish a rude girl who post malicious comments about a soldier's death.
They gather up to film this girl being punished. But when they enter her apartment, they discover that the girl has taken her life.
But something smells fishy. It doesn't look like a suicide. Someone murdered this girl and they want to find out who's this psycho.
The plot sounds like some cheap thriller movie, with young wannabe detectives who are chasing a pretty bad killer.
Nope, the director fooled you right in the beginning.
The main characters are the real murders. They played with this girl's mind, making her feel uneasy and scared.
Yet, no one of them want to admit that this girl killed herself because of their words.
Can some nasty comments push someone to commit suicide?
Are words more dangerous than weapons?
Yes, they are.
This movie shows how easily oppressors become victims and victims become nasty fellows.
Young Min is a real shining character. He admitted his wrongs, he was the first one who wanted to target this ""bad girl""", the first one who suggested that maybe this girl was killed by someone and also the first one who openly admitted that the killer was him.
Actually, all of them took part in it.
The internet is a nasty beast. If you keep feeding it, it will grow fatter and hungrier.
Overall, this movie told a good lesson.
The same lesson that all of us will soon forget after one hour.
A must watch.
