Storyline

Off the southern coast of the Korean Peninsula, an island of 17 inhabitants exists. The so-called Paradise Island holds up to its name with its breath-taking mountains and sea coupled with good-natured people. No worries or stress holds for anyone who comes to visit this beautiful oasis. But this peace doesn't last long as every single one of the inhabitants disappear one day without a single trace. Chaos initially breaks out when a blood-drenched corpse is found and everyone becomes a suspect. The furious sea allows them no boat ride to the mainland and their only existing radio communication device has been smashed. Trapped together on the island, everyone is suspicious of each other and even the unseen could be a possible suspect. As hideous secrets get revealed day by day, an island of paradise slowly turns into an island of death. Written by anonymous

Geukrakdo, a small island off the southern coast of South Korea, is home to 17 villagers, scratching out a motley, but tight-knit existence. One morning the villagers wake up to find a neighbor has been murdered, and in very bloody fashion. With communication and transportation from the island cut off, a group of villagers led by doctor Woo Seong (Park Hae Il) spearhead the search for the most likely culprit, an odd island resident who has conveniently disappeared. As the investigation continues, more victims are claimed and fingers begin to point as the increasingly desperate villagers turn against each other, letting loose inner and outer demons.

This Kim Han Min debut movie was comparison to Bong Joon Ho Memories of Murder. Both are set in 1980's, feature actor Park Hae Il (The Host)however this one is not based on real life incident. But for me it's nothing to compare. Memories of Murder i can find similar to The Chaser (2008)

Paradise Murdered is not intense at all truly is kinda funny. Actors did they performance good, and cinematography is nicely done. Filming location is southern coast of South Korea so it have beautiful imagery. Movie takes you guessing till the end, who is the murderer? So if you are going to watch it , you don't get bored this is a great cinema, but don't expect to see another masterpiece like Memory of murder and you won't regret it
