Shortly after the Korean War, a man and his son, Woo Ryong and Young Nam, arrive in an isolated mountain village looking for work in order to make enough money to continue their journey to Seoul. Against the chief's better judgment, Woo Ryong is allowed to do odd jobs and soon realizes the village suffers a major rat infestation. Like a mid-century Pied Piper, he makes a deal with the chief to rid the town of the rats but the time comes to collect his fee and leave, the chief double-crosses the father and son. Vowing revenge, he lures the rats back, fulfilling an old prophecy that brings horror to the village. (Source: CJ Entertainment) Edit Translation

The twisted version of the fairytale the Pied Piper of Hamelin.

This movie has an unique story, I've never seen it like this and this movie is quite remarkable. The movie uses the fairytale as the red thread, with some other things thrown in there.
The first half off the movie might come off slow and even boring, but this connects very well to the second part of the movie, so don't give up! I also had a hard time continue the movie, but it was so worth it.
The are some 'comical' parts, but I believe if they could have kept a serious tone throughout the movie that it would have made it better.
This movie is classified as horror, but I thought it has a more of a thriller/mystery vibe. But I do warn you that some things can be considered as gross.
The actors did a splendid job, I had sometimes a hard time with the facial expressions of the main lead. But overall it was well en greatly done!
The music was lovely, especially the music from the flute.
I would rewatch this movie, because I think it is one of a kind. But, this is also a movie that you really going to like or going to dislike, there is no inbetween.

Watch this if you like an unique storyline, great acting and good story.
Skip this if you want a horror movie or if you are expecting romance.

This film is way more fucked up than anything you've seen but the overall impact doesn't affect you as much because of the way the film is presented. I don't understand why the creator choose to do this. I liked a lot of it the idea is unique but there was some messed up things the protagonist eventually does and yes there were plenty of bad things that happened to him but again the impact was lacking.
I did feel sad at those parts but not enough for the guy to react in the way he did after basically being 'a good person ' all this time. I couldn't see his crazy, i couldn't feel that switch flipping in his brain, so the end I'm not opposed to dark nihilistic endings but this one just wasn't believable.
Still, for the overall story I feel it's worth watching.
