Storyline

Kim Byong-gook works as section chief in big bureau-building. He is believed to be a family man, but his colleagues don't like him much. One day, Byong-gook slaughters his whole family and then disappears. Detective Jong-hoon is investigating the case and also asking Kim's colleagues about possible clues, but it seems they can't help him. Except Lee Mi-rae. The policeman recognizes that the young girl seems to know more about his suspect, but is hiding something from him. So Detective Jong-hoon is watching the CCTV-Tapes and see Byong-gook entering the building - but doesn't come out again. Jong-hoon believes Kim must hide in the building, which makes the workers afraid about to work - and they are absolutely right! Written by Anonymus

Not a normal day at the Office
4 January 2016 | by See all my reviews

Also not a normal day back at home. There are things happening here, that might and probably should alienate you. Some things are more than brutal (especially the depicted violence, just thinking about it, makes you shudder), other things seem to float along. It's a weird little gem, that is anything but mainstream.

If you have seen other Korean movies, you know there is a sensibility to some of them, that might not feel right for western audiences. But that is what makes movies like this so great to watch. You have no idea where this is going, nor what to think of the main character. Is he supposed to be good or bad? Will that question be answered or not? What is the movie trying to tell us? ... and so forth
