Koreans rarely disappoint when it comes to movies. Whether you're talking about dramas or thrillers, they always boast high production values combined with good acting from all involved.
Whistle Blower is no exception. Here we have an intriguing story based on a true case that revolves around a scientist who claimed to be the first person to successfully clone human embryonic stem cells. The movie starts out with protag Yoon Min-cheol's investigation into illegal ovum trafficking that might be connected to Lee Jang-hwan, the aforementioned scientist, and his research into stem cell cloning. He decides to pursue the story further, but it quickly stirs public interest that backfires at Yoon and his network station. The rest is up to you to reveal, as it would be a shame to spoil more of the plot.
I feel like I've said enough regarding the movie. I wholeheartedly recommend it along with Silenced and Unbowed as some of the best Korean dramas I've seen recently. It might seem as a modest TV production at first, but it quietly pulls you along and doesn't let go until the end. You'll enjoy watching Yoon's fight for justice against all odds.
