Jo-goo, a street magician (Lee Min-ki), notices a miserable looking girl, Yeo-ri (Son Ye-jin), in the audience during one of his performances, and she winds up being the inspiration for his “Horror magic show.” The show became a runaway success almost overnight and Jo-goo in turn, is now a successful stage magician with a model girlfriend. Yeo-ri works for Jo-goo, playing the specter in his show. Forward to almost a year later, the darkness inside her, something her fellow colleagues sense, keeps her from truly connecting with them. When Jo-goo’s attempt to include Yeo-ri in a staff dinner finally succeeds, hilarious disaster ensues when she ends up blindingly drunk. Jo-goo calls Yeo-ri the next morning to sort things out, but when the phone disconnects with a weird sound, he decided to drop by her place for a visit instead. There, Jo-goo met and engages in a game of hide-and-seek with a ghost child, which then scared the bejesus out of him later that night. As the two of them spent more time together, developing a fast friendship, Yeo-ri confesses the long story behind her gray, wan face. (*)
It’s a Korean movie again! lol. So, I watched this yesterday afternoon coz yeah I got bored again (what a bum life!!) but I actually planned to go outside the house and find job somewhere, but unfortunately, I fell on the stairs, (take note: I’m on the last step) which caused me to have sprain in my right ankle. Stupid right? I know, I know. Well, going back to the movie, it’s a Horror-Romantic-Comedy or whatever you may call it.
I don’t want to give spoilers about the movie (if you haven’t watch it yet) but I am telling you, some scenes are shocking! My heart almost jumped out. lol. Oehmgie. Especially when the lady ghost is appearing. I don’t know if it’s the sound effect, the make up or I am such a coward that time, (coz I’m the only one watching in the room, while my sister and her friends are in the living room, laughing out loud etc etc.)
So uhm the ratings! Wala na kasi akong masabi pa. lol. 7/10 stars! I can’t say that it’s a must watch but the movie has this 3 package I am looking for – 1) Romance. 2) Thrill/Suspense. and 3) Heartbreaking lines (speech or sort of)…(?) Hehehe! And… I’m going to color now a drawing I made yesterday night. Til the next post Worpy! :)
