People tend to be intentionally provocative or extremely argumentative over petty matters on twitter. A woman who challenges men becomes targeted as a public enemy. Young men expose her identity and even show up on her doorstep. But what they find is MIN Ha-young, the woman who had hanged herself. What caused her death? Was it by suicide or murder? Socialphobia addresses the question of adopting a different identity on the Internet through the death of a woman. Two young men Ji-woong and Yong-min who were preparing for the police academy exam become involved in the case. What apparently looks like suicide is held under suspicion by the two as foul play. After posing the possibility of homicide, the young men return to the crime scene. However mystery itself does not seem to be the point of this film as it gradually exposes during the course of finding the truth to MIN Ha-young's death, her life as it really was and what the two men in pursuit of the real cause of her death wanted to ...Written by
Socialphobia tries to uncover the life in the cyber world and how it correlates with real life. When a condescending remark was tweeted, the internet go berserk and start to rally against the immoral tweet- er. As the hatred blown out of proportion, a group of online community member feel the need to punish the criminal only to put themselves in trouble.
Repeatedly, the message sent in this movie was that normal functioning society members would never understand the life of a keyboard warrior; why they do the things they do, how they end up being a keyboard warrior. To me, keyboard warrior is just an online bully. When the medium like internet exist it makes it easier for bullies to channel their anger and immoral attitude without so much hassle. People don't know who you are and you can simply let them know the other side of you and usually without getting caught in real life.
Basically, I think this movie wants to portray how bad the younger generation has messed up with the existence of social media platform. While the platform was created with good intention, younger generations are prone to evil side it has to offer.
The movie is good enough for me. I wouldn't go as far as saying great because I wasn't heavily impacted by it. I'm well aware of the bad stuff that's going on and so it didn't so much as give me any enlightenment regarding the issue. I wish keyboard warriors would watch this movie and get a good scare out of it.
