Hye-jin's homecoming should have been a joyous occasion. She was especially happy to see her childhood friend again, the shy Eun-ju. However, when a secret is revealed, harsh words are exchanged. These words deeply affect Eun-ju and,in the next scene, we see her plummeting from a 30-story building. In a flashback provided by Seon-ae, we learn that the ghost of Eun-ju is hunting down all of Hye-jin's friends and killing them. Is this possible or is a more worldly force at work? What is this mysterious tape that everyone is asking about? Written by

The following are some of the most blaring problems with this movie: 1) Clichés abound. Seriously, awful "twists" are everywhere.
2) The narrative jumps around in time, which would be fine if done well, but it's not.
3) Lame characters that don't develop so much as either remain utterly static, or drastically change for no good reason.
4) Big one: HORRIBLE ACTING. Over the top from nearly every person.
The following are some of the best points from the movie: 1) The lead is damn good looking.
As I see it, there are only two kinds of people who would be into this movie: a) People who can sit through 90 minutes of tripe simply because the lead is attractive.
b) People who often think to themselves, "I like Hollywood dreck rife with clichés and overacting, but if only I could watch it in Korean..." There's a lot of good Korean cinema out there, so why waste your time with garbage?
