Hee Jin (Nam Sang Mi), a college student currently studying in Seoul, receives news that her 14-year-old sister So Jin (Shim Eun Kyeong) has disappeared. Hee Jin then quickly returns home to look for her missing sister. Meanwhile, her mother prays obsessively for her daughter to return and asks Hee Jin to do so.
Veteran detective Tae Hwan (Ryoo Seung Ryong) becomes involved in the case, but at first doesn't take things as seriously, believing So Jin is a runaway. Then another person, Jeong Mi (Oh Ji Eun), falls down from a roof and discovers So Jin's note. The apartment's security guard Kwi Kap (Lee Chang Jik) and apartment resident Kyeong Ja (Moon Hee Kyeong) reveal that So Jin was possessed by a ghost. The detective and Hee Jin become confused with these news facts.
Shortly later, Jeong Mi is found dead and Det. Tae Hwon learns that Jeong Mi attended the same church as the missing girl's mother. The security guard Kwi Kap is then found dead. Meanwhile the mother continues to pray silently, while Hee Jin sees dead people in her dreams.
Cast & Credits
But what I don't like, is a horror film with little to no real plot.
While this movie did seem interesting at first, it became very boring very quickly. The problem of this movie, was that there were too many plot holes and no real explainable plot. It was all sort of muddled and confusing.
People died without explanation as to why they were the target, the film relied on jump scares for the main element of horror and there's no real explanation as to why possession became possible in the first place.
I don't mind if a movie leaves a few loose ends for the person watching to determine and make up their own idea (like at the very last rooftop scene) but when in every corner there's an unanswered question, you start to become more frustrated with the situation than the characters of the movie.
Unless there is some symbolism I don't understand because the differing cultures of Korea and America, this film was very random and just not a very worthwhile watch in my opinion.
