Lee Du-seok publishes an autobiography describing murders he committed after the statute of limitations expires. A detective and one of the victim's mothers search for the author while another killer begins a spree of murders.
Former serial killer Byung-su gets diagnosed with Alzheimer's. The doctor tells him that it's due to the aftereffects from a traffic accident 17 years ago; the same accident that stopped him from his killings and allowed him to live a normal life with his dear daughter. So when a series of murders occurs near his town, Byung-su gets worried whether the killings are his doing during his memory lapses. But then he comes across Tae-ju and instinctively realizes that he is the serial killer. He reports this to the police, only to learn that Tae-ju is one. Byung-su tries to find firm evidence that Tae-ju is a psychopath, but only raises Tae-ju's interest in him and his daughter. And now with his memory slipping, Byung-su must find a way to protect his daughter from Tae-ju.Written by

It's been a while...
....since I last saw such an engaging thriller. Korean filmmakers really know how to get your heart rate up. The story is a piece of candy and the whole plot and development just draws you in.
I've seen a few comments which are badmouthing the specific pace of korean movies and scenes which seem to be pointless, but let me tell you this: they really don't try to explain everything like it's for a 10 yo child, we have enough american thriller cliches to do that. So if you're a true movie fan who was on a lookout for a piece of cinema to linger on your mind then watch this
