Fantasia 2011: ‘Hello Ghost’ is surprisingly upbeat given its morbid subject matter

Hello Ghost aka Hellowoo Goseuteu (2010) South Korea

Written and Directed by Young-Tak Kim

Fantasia imdb

South Korea has a difficulty with suicides. On one hand they have one of, if not the highest rates of suicides in the developed world. At around 30 suicides per 100,000 people per year, only Lithuania is as bad. (By comparison, Canada and the U.S.A are around 11 suicides per 100,000 people per year.)

At the same time, because there are many Roman Catholics in South Korea, the belief that suicide is a sin – in fact, the ultimate sin – is widespread. Which may help explain why suicide is not discussed. If (for example) a student snaps during a hellish exam week and kills himself, many schools forbid discussing the death.

All of these attitudes to suicide, its (for want of a better word) popularity, societal disapproval of the practice and a need for secrecy were previously on »
