Enter Seok-gyu into the fray as the new lecturer, and the other folks feel threatened with the arrival of the good looker. You'd thought for a minute that the two will hit it off straightaway, but both have this cold shoulder exhibited. The rest of the story deals mainly with the slow revelation of a deep dark secret these two share way back in high school, which involves death in a plot line similar to that of Dorm's swimming pool. In some sick fashion, I kinda enjoyed(!) the way it was played on screen, it looked horribly realistic.
And the black comedy continues from then on, as if both characters are that forbidden alignment of the stars, that when brought together, will cause the tragic demise of those around them. I've got to give the movie credit though, that these sequences happen when you least expect it, or if you are expecting it, the delivery will still manage to surprise you for a bit.
And is it just me, or does Moon So-Ri look like Michelle Chia from certain angles in the movie? Somehow she looks really to die for at certain angles, while other angles made her look pretty ordinary. You gotta check it out to see what I mean.
But it's recommended only if you cannot get tickets to other more worthy summer movies. With the barrage of Korean movies of the same genre lately (dealing with romance), this could possibly be one of the weakest K-offering this season.
