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 »

Well paced and truly frightening
30 September 2012 | by (Chicago,IL) – See all my reviews

Well I will say that I been getting more into Asian horror over the past few years. This film is by far different that most Asian Horror Films that I seen, Different in terms of the main focus of the film, which they focus around a struggling Korean Pop Band who steals a song that happens to be cursed and they become popular. You would think an idea like that would fail for a horror film right? Wrong.......... the plot for this film is well paced and horror in the film just builds up as the film goes on.

The things I really enjoyed about this film were the actresses. The Cast for this film is really attractive and good looking and fit the appearance of a K-Pop band. Plus this is probably one of the few films I saw where things weren't predictable in the plot in the horror. Also I loved the horror scenes they were really terrifying and scary, non of that cheesy Jump Scare stuff. If you jump in this film your most likely jumping out of your cloths into a shell.

Overall this film was great and of course with the main focus of the horror being a Asian Ghost Girl with long hair looking for revenge is what knocks this rating down. This movie is very recent and came out last year so I'd say give it time before it becomes more popular and perhaps gathers a "Cult" following.
