After writing a series of articles about a pedophilia scandal, journalist Ji Won receives threatening calls on her cellular and subsequently changes her number. Her close friend Ho Jung, who is infertile, and her husband Chang Hoon invite Ji Won to move to their empty house in Bang Bae that is newly furnished. When Ho Jung's daughter Yeong Ju answers an anonymous phone call on Ji Won's new cell phone, the girl screams and begins to show a disturbing attraction for her father and jealous rejection towards her mother. Meanwhile Ji Won receives more mysterious phone calls and sees a teenager playing Beethoven's "Moonlight Sonata" on the piano. After investigating her phone number, Ji Won discovers that the original owner of the number, Jin Hee, had vanished and that the two subsequent owners of the number had died mysteriously in unusual circumstances.

This movie was really good; it scared me at times and there were some really good plot twists.
There was some confusing bits but nothing that really mattered. I really love that they used Moonlight Sonata- I already have it associated with the horror genre, being a Resident Evil game fan.
Really, if you like a movie with a good story, you should watch it. Just be mindful it's in the horror genre.
Personally, I wouldn't re-watch it unless someone else wanted to see it. For me, it's one of those movies where you watched it once and you're satisfied with it. It left you with not feeling the need to watch it again, which isn't necessarily bad.

Cliché ghost story seeking revenge but saved by great acting

This movie in general is an average movie. The plot isn't as good as my expectations. I actually stopped watching halfway but decided to continue watching the rest later on. On the latter part, lot of plot twists happen but it still didn't par on what I'm looking for. For those who love horror, this doesn't have lots of jumpscare and is more on the dramatic side.

Thankfully this movie was saved by the actors/actresses themselves specially for the little girl Eun Seo Woo who acted her role pretty damn well. Also the main characters on the story made the film a little bit easier to endure.

The main song on the film Moonlight Sonata became an earworm for me. At first I thought it was eerie to hear but then as the film goes along I felt the bitterness and pain.

This isn't a film that I would really watch again but for those who's not really into hardcore horror and jumpscares, this one is a great starter.
