Trivia

The music director Shinsa-dong Tiger wanted to meet the actresses beforehand to analyze their vocal range, color, and more to create the perfect idol song for the movie. However, the crew did not want to put pressure on the actresses, so they convinced them that he was a new actor participating in the film, and conducted a casual meeting at a karaoke "no-rae-bang." There, the actresses were able to conduct their "auditions" comfortably. See more »

Better than your average.
22 September 2011 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

I was pleasantly surprised by this one therefore I have to recommend it to all of you horror fans out there, looking for something nice. Here are some reasons why "White: Melody of the curse" manages to stand tall at its end:

I had my share of Asian horrors, not too many I must say but enough for an opinion to be formed. While they bring something new from your typical Hollywood scares they also kinda always circle around the same pattern, a female ghost, long hair, usually crawling in a scary way or walking on a ceiling, nonetheless you can say: you've seen one, you've seen them all. Well not really, this movie takes you outside the box a little, characters have solid builds, it shows the cruel reality of bands struggling to succeed and you get a inside look in the music industry.

Also, as many Asian Horrors accustomed us, this one also has a twist and quite impossible to figure it out, therefore if you're watching it alone or with friends, you'll get a blast trying to figure out who is behind all of it.

I guess there are more things to be said but I find it best to let you discover them for yourself, just have a little faith and patience, quite hard to be disappointed by it.
