Is this remake of "El Cuerpo 2012" really necessary?
8 July 2018 | by LogicIsEverythingSee all my reviews

First of all, when I watched this Korean film, I didn't know it's a remake of the Spanish film, "El Cuerpo (The Body/The Corpse) 2012", but I do remember that I've seen a similar film with exactly the same scenario and storyline before. So after I searched on google.com and imdb.com, I finally found the original Spanish one. But in the meantime, the reason why that made me went back to search in my memory lane was when I watched this Korean remake, some part of it made me feel uncomfortable and uneasy to watch on. Why I didn't have the patience to watch this Korean movie so early in the stage?

Well, it's because when watching films in this genre from Korea, Japan, Taiwan and China, they always put some stupid cast or exaggerated stereotyped characters in them. There is always a sloppy attired high I.Q. senior detective or chief inspector who is always so dangerously close to be fired by his direct moronic higher-up. This guy is always untraditional, either divorced or wife died not long ago, or daughter just died from some incurable disease or accident, so he's always depressed, drunken and chain-smoking. The murderer or the killer is always either a rich and powerful guy or a lower class maniac. These two leading opponents are inevitably stereotyped and to play such roles are usually the heavy wt. popular A-list actors. Well, what I want to say here is: These two guys are necessary hide-and-seek main characters, two necessary evils. But what about the other detectives under this senior detective? Well, as always, here comes the second but the most unbearable stupid arrangement, they are just a bunch of morons, clowns or yes-men. These lower level detectives never looked like what they should look like but totally incompetent and stupid. And funny enough, they always look like high school graduates or dropouts. Too young to become plain-cloth detectives, not even qualified for the lowest entry level uniformed cops. So in this Korean film, we got two stupid, timid male detectives and a bit smarter female detective who looked more like a high schooler, yet she is a detective in this film. Those two male detectives are the usual formulaic stereotyped morons, errand boys to the leading detective. They don't have any brain cell to solve the crime but only part of the setting to enhance the smartness of the leading detective.

The night watchman in this Korean film is a dumb old fart, but he's wearing a pair of high quality leather shoes with leather soles and heels, so when he walked along the aisles to check out the weird situation, his leather heeled shoes created a "click,click,click..." sound effect to increase the tension. Well, night watchman should wear rubberized soles working shoes or boots that won't create too much noise when he checks around inside the building. The Korean director made the guy wear such shoes which created such clear and sharp "clicking" noise when he walks around is another laughable arrangement that only would appear in Asian thrillers.
