After this program she will prepare to take her ill daughter to America the following morning. During the radio show Ko Sun-Young receives a startling text message. At Ko Sun-Young's apartment, her ill daughter is being watched by Sun-Young's sister Ah-Young (Shin Da-Eun). Then, a man named Dong-Su (Yoo Ji-Tae) breaks into the apartment with a large wrench.

Quality edge of your seat thriller..
6 February 2015 | by pasang-sharmaSee all my reviews

I am a huge fan of the thriller genre, so it goes without saying am overly particular and highly critical about reviewing and voting for these films.It takes quite a lot to impress me to say the least.

Now lets see, first, for people who say this movie is mediocre, did you once take your eye balls away from the screen,even when you knew who the culprit was already.Yea that's what i thought.I don't know what you people look for when you go to watch a film. You cant expect all the films to be an old boy or a memories of murder otherwise their would not have have been an old boy now,Would There!!!

To give away the whodunnit factor in the beginning itself, which could have been a disaster and still make the movie as thrilling and interesting as it were just speaks volumes of this film.

7/10 A must watch if you are a thriller enthusiast like me.
