Sang Hoon, an average salaryman lives in an apartment complex with his wife and child at the foot of the mountain. One night, he witnesses a crime scene through his living room window, and the killer also notices that he is being watched. Sang-hoon, despite the dilemma, decides to hide and neglect the fact that he had seen someone get murdered, but had done nothing. The killer, however, starts to search the apartment to find and eliminate his only witness of that night. (Source: KoBiz) Edit Translation

What Is A Safe Place?

This is a worth to watch. In terms of storyline, shots, editing, and selection of cast. It shows a different dimension between each roles's perspective in deducing the culprit. The shot cue between shots also trying to tell between each person within the same event timing, so it's very fast paced. Sung-min here is really a good actor, the look of him knowing the fact he knows the culprit but are forced to maintain silent for the protection of his family.

The ending is perfect, as it packages the whole concept of what is considered a safe neighbourhood. Will you want a neighbourhood, where all the homes are busy with their activities or someone whom will still keep a lookout of their surrounding in case of something happens. Which creates the irony, what is a safe neighbourhood, is a quiet and serene place; a safe place?
