Thanks to Golden Village and omy.sg, once again I get to watch the movie preview~ This round, of the Korean action thriller, Confession of Murder.
Surprise, surprise, and surprise! Everything is out of my expectation. Never expect so much action in the beginning of the show, yah, if you are a frequent later comer, please try to be on time for the show =)
Just as everything is at the hype… there’s a twist that suddenly caught you unaware and… force you to let go and feel relax… As I was watching the way the girls inside the movie gone mad about the handsome murder, and tried so hard to ‘prove his crime’, I can’t help but feel a bit sad towards this. Although this is just a show but I know in reality, more and more people are idolizing ‘criminal act’ in the wrong way… is it just me thinking too much or is the script writer trying to be sarcastic towards these people?
I like the “action” in the middle portion of the movie when the family try to seek revenge at the murderer, it’s so exciting and yet so, although weird to say this, funny. Just as you thought you are getting near to the mystery, twist again! There is so much unexpected…
Certain portion of the show is quite violence, guess that’s why the show earn a rating of NC16, somehow I can’t help but feel that the director has done a freaking awesome job in playing around with our emotions.
This is the trailer, looks interesting, isn’t it?
An infamous serial killing case left 10 women dead shook the nation.

2 years after the statute of limitations is expired, a man named Lee Du-seok publishes a book titled “Confession of Murder”, claiming his responsibility for the murders that took place 17 years ago. His book becomes a huge success, making him an instant celebrity thanks to his beautiful façade and innately danger that’s associated with his presence.
