The Phantom Detective. 2016

Directed by Jo Sung-Lee.

Starring Lee Je-Hoon, Go Ara, Park Geun-Hyung, Roh Jeong-Eui and Kim Ha-Na.


Private detective Hong Gil-dong is seeking revenge for his mother who was murdered in front of him when he was a child. An investigation determines that the assailant is a man named Kim, but when he arrives at the Kim’s house, he finds only the man’s grandchildren who tell him that their grandfather was kidnapped. Hong tracks down the vicious kidnapper with help from the grandchildren, but senses that he is not acting alone. The mastermind is the notorious leader of a massive cult – a man with a terrifying, bloody secret in his hands. Now, Hong decides to face him once and for all.

It’s been truly fascinating watching South Korean cinema (and culture in general) boom in the last decade or so, earning an ever-growing following in North America. »
