Trivia

During the argument between the Japanese officer and the Headmistress, the officer's haircut is very casual by Japanese military standards of that era. It looks more like a contemporary style. It's doubtful that a Japanese officer, or enlisted soldier, would have been allowed to wear his hair in such a way, as the style would more likely have been either closely cropped or very closely trimmed along the edges.

Goofs

The fidelity of the props to the setting of Japanese Empire in Korea during the late 1930's is actually quite impressive. However, one detail kept cropping up over and over, and that is the intravenous (IV) equipment. What I see are spiked drip chambers using clear plastic and topped by white plastic spikes. Plus, the fluid runs through clear IV tubing regulated by white plastic roller-type flow regulators. These did not exist in the '30's. The standards of the time utilized rubber "surgical" tubing, metal thumb clamps, and rate controlled by eyeballing fluid volume administered over a given time, such as 4 ounces per hour. This would be read off of a scale printed or cast molded onto the side of the bottle. See more »

Never A Normal Day at this Boarding School
24 July 2015 | by See all my reviews

The Silenced or it's Korean title translated Gyeongseong High School : The Disappearance of the Girls made me dive into the story right from the start. The story, i believe took place sometime during the Japan colonization in Korea. And the mysterious disappearance of the girls happened in this boarding school.

Joo Ran (Park Bo Young) as the centre point in this whole story shoulders her own weight. I couldn't help but sympathize her for the treatment she received.

A mysterious incident took place one by one and it makes me wonder what's the deal with this shady boarding school who only has a very few students and was built way too deep into the forest. It's easy to lay suspicion as to whom is the one behind the disappearance but the real question is why this has to happened.

I'm just a little bit disappointing near the ends because i was expecting some historical reference to be the reason of the disappearance but surely the story take it's own twist. I've watched too many movies, I started developing an expectation on a certain pattern that a movie with this genre should have.

Not really the ending that I want but it's worthwhile for anyone who loves mystery/thriller/crime movies. Happy watching.

Sorry for this kinda crappy review. I haven't written in a while.
