Storyline

Moo-hyuk is journalist... but actually is not doing very well in his job. Thats why he probably get fired soon and his wife is threatening him with divorce. But just in that situation he stumbles upon a memo of a serial killer. Moo-hyuk takes the chances and writes a passionate article about it which makes him a star in the media. Of course, the police immediately starts to investigate the case, but finds no body. Also Moo-hyuk has no idea until he finds out that this memo was just part of Chinese novel called "Liang Chen Murder Record". In other words: Moo-hyuk has done quite some shit! He could loose his job, his respect and even has to go to jail. So Moo-hyuk has only the choice of clearing his "mistake" or giving the police and the public what they want: many many corpses.

Engaging story
23 March 2017 | by See all my reviews

An unsuccessful journalist follows a lead to a murder. Soon after, he finds himself struggling to control the storm he unleashed with his story until fiction and reality intermingle beyond what the viewer would have first imagined.

Well made movie with very good acting and that keeps you engaged until the end. It still somehow felt weaker than other similar Korean films like Memories of Murder or The Chaser though.

The message behind the story is about how fiction and reality come together thanks to a web of lies that start from selfish grounds but that ultimately serve a purpose for many of the people involved. It tells how people care little about the truth or will simply ignore it when this one doesn't serve them or because lies and deceit can be the vehicle for survival in a world where it's often difficult to realize what's really going on.

There's an important message there that somehow leaves you a bit pessimistic but with an optimist twist in the end when you realize that this web of lies can also work to spread happiness and, in a way, for many people, that's the only truth that really matters in the end.
