Bok Soon runs a street stall while taking care of her younger sister. Bok Soon may not be the brightest girl but what she lacks in intelligence, she makes up for in uncontrollable rage. She’s infamously known as the ‘psycho bitch’ in her neighborhood. Bok Soon’s relatively peaceful life with her sister is disrupted when they cross paths with a serial killer named Tae Soo. Tae Soo kills Bok Soon’s sister because she may have stumbled upon the truth of his murderous lifestyle. Bok Soon’s rage consumes her completely, leading her to plot her revenge on Tae Soo. Meanwhile, Tae Soo vows to tie up his only loose end—Bok Soon. Bok Soon’s descent into revenge and electrifying struggle with Tae Soo culminates in a riveting conclusion. Who will emerge alive—hot-blooded Bok Soon or cold-hearted Tae Soo?

Monster is one of my all-time favorite thrillers. Lee Min Ki delivers an amazing portrayal of a man who's mind just isn't right. Throughout the performance, you aren't sure if you love him or hate him, if you want to hug him and wipe away his tears or cut his throat before he can do more damage.

Kim Go Eun's character was hard for me to understand at first. Her single-minded purpose shone through until the very end. Bok Sun becomes the every-man's-heroine, who manages to fight for her personal justice despite her disability.

The gore value in this film is fantastic. My personal favorite is the chopsticks scene, which I highly recommend. I have watched this film several times, and it continues to thrill me, like my favorite roller coaster.

On top of all of that, the scenery is gorgeous, as it is set in a forested, rural area. The filmography was done beautifully.

I recommend this flick for lovers of the thrill. Lovers of blood. Lovers of psychotic evildoers and lovers of a good game of cat and mouse.

This movie was very enjoyable, a little fast paced but a really good watch. I enjoyed the the cast and how they portrayed each character. Kim Ko Eun portrayed the violent, dim witted bok soon very well and surprisingly I wasn't annoyed by this character. And one has to the the portrayal of the psychotic tea soo played by Lee Min Ki, I was glad that he really came over as this crazed killer. I can't say that I really loved the end where Bok Soon really proves how stupid she is but the very end with Bok Soon singing that song.
