Storyline

Very much a Korean version of "Tootsie"....Park Jin-Wu, is a handsome young Korean playboy/womanizer who dreams of becoming a model/actor. However, his role is behind the scenes...working as a computer special FX programmer. Due to a computer glitch, he accidentally gets a print-out of his face and body morphed with that of a female model. Just for kicks, he sends in the picture to an audition, and ends up cast in a movie as the sexy, female lead. With the help of his best friend, Jin-Wu simultaneously tries to become a movie star, maintain a double life and hold on to his pretty pianist girlfriend. (Not to be confused with the Japanese horror film from 1999 titled Odishon, or Audition in English.) Written by A.D. Tranchina (edited)

Gruesome gory and totally mind blowing!!!!
31 October 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I watched this film on TV last night as i had heard good things about it from a friend, but with not being a fan of subtitle i gave it a miss but my was i wrong, i have never been as genuinely scared by the film as this ever. I think the reason for this was that you didn't really see that much of what was coming to you actually coming... what with it starting of like a slow boring romantic comedy but i actually feel now like it was the directors intention to bore you so that you would not see the last 45 minutes coming.

Wouldn't want to ruin this by going into the details but if anyone can spare the time to watch this film please stick with it and don't give up after the first hour the latter part is a total pay off and totally amazing...
