14 April 2012 | by (Greece) – See all my reviews

Original and interesting. Like L HH said, this film is one of a kind. However, there are so many stops, "Chilling Romance" never takes off and loses momentum.

This film makes a brave attempt to mash difficult genres. The end result is a dish that is hard to swallow, but somewhat edible. I was not satisfied with "Chilling Romance," because the story was not engaging and progressed roughly. I want to blame someone whether it's the director, editor, screenwriter, or all three.

The multi-talented actress Son Ye Jin saved this film from disaster. Always surprising her fans with new and unique roles.

All in all, if you want try something new, give "Chilling Romance" a try.
