Storyline

Kim Byong-gook works as section chief in big bureau-building. He is believed to be a family man, but his colleagues don't like him much. One day, Byong-gook slaughters his whole family and then disappears. Detective Jong-hoon is investigating the case and also asking Kim's colleagues about possible clues, but it seems they can't help him. Except Lee Mi-rae.

So Detective Jong-hoon is watching the CCTV-Tapes and see Byong-gook entering the building - but doesn't come out again. Jong-hoon believes Kim must hide in the building, which makes the workers afraid about to work - and they are absolutely right! Written by Anonymus

If you're in the mood for a murder mystery thriller

I really like Korean cinema (I Saw the Devil, Train to Busan, OldBoy, etc) so I decided to watch this one too since it's on Netflix.

As far as murder mystery movies go, this is a decent one. And, I feel as though it has something to say - along the lines of 'don't work yourself to death' or 'an overly stressed person can *snap* due to their work environment'. I don't know, I'm just guessing.

It's made well: good sound design and the creepy atmosphere is effective when it needs to be.

It's not the strongest film I've seen from South Korea but to be fair I've only seen around 10 or so. But, if you're in the mood for a good thriller-whodunit movie give this one a shot.
