YesAsia Editorial Description

"When you gaze into an abyss, the abyss also gazes into you."

Director Kim Jee Woon follows The Good, The Bad, The Weird with the highly anticipated, ultra-violent revenge thriller I Saw the Devil starring two of Korea's top actors. Lee Byung Hun, who has headlined Kim's last three films, faces off against award-winning actor Choi Min Sik, who starred in Kim's first film The Quiet Family back in 1998. Relentlessly treading on the thin line between man and monster, I Saw the Devil takes the audience to dark and disturbing places in its graphic depiction of the intense, gory battle that unfolds between an unhinged murderer and the man who becomes his match in his raging quest for revenge.

The police have been hunting psychopathic serial killer Kyung Chul (Choi Min Sik) for a long time, but he slips away each time, leaving behind him a gruesome trail of blood. He has taken the lives of many in the cruelest possible ways, and his latest victim is the fiancee of government agent Soo Hyun (Lee Byung Hun). Soo Hyun vows to avenge her death at all costs, but to catch the devil, he too must become a devil.

    악마 같은 연쇄살인마 그리고…
    그에게 약혼녀를 잃고 그 고통을 뼛속 깊이 되갚아 주려는 한 남자
    그들의 광기 어린 대결이 시작된다.

    국정원 경호요원 ‘수현(이병헌)’은 약혼녀 주연이 잔인하게 살해당하자 자신에게 가장 소중한 사람을 지켜내지 못했다는 자괴감과 분노로 가장 고통스러운 복수를 다짐한다. 수현은 연쇄살인마 ‘장경철(최민식)’이 범인임을 알아내고 죽을 만큼의 고통만 가하고 놓아주기를 반복하며 처절한 응징을 시작한다. 그러나, 악마보다 더 악랄한 살인마 장경철은 난생 처음 만난 대등한 적수의 출현을 즐기며 반격에 나서기 시작하는데...

    ■ 프로덕션 노트 Preface

    내가 보고 싶은 영화를 만든다는 출발점 때문일까. 언제나 장르에 대한 매혹이 그 무엇보다 앞 자리에 오고는 했다. 하지만 <악마를 보았다>는 장르보다 인물의 힘, 복수의 이름으로 고통을 주고받는 두 남자의 감정과 행위를 중심 핵에 놓고 있는 영화다. 활화산 같은 광기와 얼음장 같은 광기가 충돌할 때 나오는 원시적인 에너지를, 감독이기 이전에 팬의 입장에서, 불덩어리 같은 배우 최민식과 그 세밀한 표현력의 끝이 어디일지 궁금한 배우 이병헌의 불꽃 튀는 대결을 통해 보고 싶었다. <악마를 보았다>는 제목 그대로 평범하게 살던 한 남자가 뜻하지 않게 악마 같은 놈을 만나 약혼녀를 살해당한 후, 그 고통을 고스란히 되돌려 주려는 데서 시작한다. 그래서 이 영화는 고통분담극이고 악마와 사투를 벌인다는 점에서는 종교극이고 한 남자의 뼈저린 고통이라는 점에서 수난극이며, 그 처절한 응징의 방식이 정당한 것이냐고 질문하는 도덕극일 수도 있고 사랑하는 사람의 영정 앞에서 복수를 다짐한 한 남자의 순애보적 애정극 일수도 있다. 하지만 그 이전에 두 배우가 현장에서 만나 빚어낸 마법, 극단적인 캐릭터 연기를 관객들이 즐겁게 봐 주었으면 좋겠다. 또한, 누구나 꿈꾸지만 실행에 옮기지 못 하는 잔인하고 강렬한 복수를 실제로 주고 받는 두 남자를 보며 오락영화의 통쾌함과 함께, 왜 누군가는 악마로 살아가고 누군가는 평범한 사람으로 살아가는가? 도대체 어디서부터 잘못 되어진 것인가? 지금 나는 어디로 가고 있는가? 같은 걸 한번쯤 생각해 볼 수 있는 영화가 되었으면 좋겠다. - 감독 김지운

    ■ About Movie

    한국 영화계를 대표하는 세 남자의 만남
    새롭고 강렬한 스릴러 탄생!

    김지운 감독은 한가지 장르로 대표되지 않는 감독이다. 그는 총 5편의 장편 영화 그리고 4편의 단편영화까지 단 한번도 동일한 장르의 작품을 만든 적이 없다. 코미디, 호러, 느와르, 웨스턴 등 한 사람의 작품이라는 사실이 놀라울 정도로 매번 새로운 영역에 발을 내딛었으며 그만의 독특한 스타일로 관객들을 흥분시켜왔다. 그런 그가 이번에는 <악마를 보았다>를 통해 스릴러 영화를 선보인다. 항상 ‘김지운표’라는 수식어를 장르 앞에 붙이게 만드는 그만의 독특한 스타일은 한국 관객에게 또 한번의 색다른 경험을 안겨줄 것이라고 기대된다.
    또한 그의 장편 데뷔작 <조용한 가족> 이후 12년 만의 반가운 재회를 하는 최민식과 <달콤한 인생>, <놈놈놈> 에 이어 그의 영화에 세 번째로 출연, 김지운 감독의 페르소나로 불리는 이병헌, 이름만으로도 한국 영화계를 대표하는 두 배우가 살인과 복수라는 메인 테마를 연기한다.
    <악마를 보았다>는 스릴러 영화의 고유한 문법을 김지운 감독이 어떻게 변주해서 내어놓을지, 뜨거운 세 남자의 시너지가 어떻게 발현될지, 새롭고 강렬한 스릴러에 대한 기대감을 자극한다.

    2010년 스크린 최고의 빅 매치, 이병헌VS최민식
    그들의 광기 어린 대결이 시작된다!

    카리스마란 단어가 진부해 질만큼 강렬한 배우 최민식. <친절한 금자씨> 이후 꼬박 5년, 관객은 배우 최민식, 혹은 그만이 할 수 있는 개성과 힘을 갖춘 ‘쎈’ 캐릭터를 향한 갈증을 참아야 했다. <악마를 보았다>에서 살인을 즐기는 연쇄살인마라는 악역으로 5년 만에 복귀하는 최민식은 그 갈증을 풀어줄 것이다.
    <놈놈놈> <아이리스>. 스크린과 TV를 넘나드는 건 물론, 할리우드와 일본까지. 말 그대로 월드 스타 이병헌. 그가 <악마를 보았다>에서 불러낼 인물은, 연쇄살인마 경철에게 약혼녀를 잃고 고통을 고스란히 돌려주려는 남자다.
    “이 영화를 만드는 감독이지만, 원초적인 남성성을 분출하는 최민식과 섬세한 표현력의 이병헌. 뚜렷이 대비되는 두 사람의 불꽃 튀는 연기대결을 팬의 한 사람으로서 기대하고 있다”는 김지운 감독의 크랭크 인 소감처럼, 두 배우의 뜨겁고 강렬한 에너지는 2010년 여름을 더욱 뜨겁게 달굴 것으로 기대된다.

    죽이는 건 복수가 아니다!
    색다른 복수극 <악마를 보았다>

    <악마를 보았다>의 양대 축은 연쇄살인마, 그리고 처절한 복수를 꿈꾸는 남자다. 연쇄살인마와 복수를 테마로 한 영화가 난무하며, 오히려 영화보다 더 영화스러운 일들이 벌어지는 현실을 생각하면 특이할 것 없는 설정이다. 하지만 <악마를 보았다>는 ‘복수’라는 익숙한 테마를 새로운 방식으로 접근한다.
    약혼녀를 잔인하게 살해한 살인마를 쫓는 수현. 사랑하는 이의 주검 앞에서 흘린 눈물은 뜨거웠지만 그의 복수는 연쇄살인마보다 더 차갑다. 그는 범인을 죽이는 것으로 복수하려는 것이 아니라 연인이 당한 고통을 뼛속 깊이 되돌려 주겠다는 의지로 움직인다. 수현은 극이 진행됨에 따라 죽지 않을 만큼 지속적으로 고통을 가하고 놓아주기를 반복하는 서늘한 모습으로 변해간다.
    경철 또한 타인의 목숨을 지배하는 것을 즐기며 더없이 잔인하게 살인을 저지르는 인물이지만 그 이상의 것이 있다. 수현에게 죽음에 가까운 린치를 당하면서도 오히려 그와의 대결을 즐기며, 수현에게 다시금 복수하려는 경철은 기존 영화들 속 연쇄살인마 캐릭터와는 확연히 다르다.
    범인을 잡아내는 과정의 미스터리와 스릴에서 영화적 재미를 찾는 일반적 패턴과 달리 영화 초반, 이미 살인마의 정체가 밝혀짐에도 불구하고 극의 긴장감이 점점 더 상승하는 것은 이 때문이다.
    <악마를 보았다>를 통해 관객들은 단순한 선악의 구분에 입각, 정의의 편을 드는 일반적인 관람 경험과 달리, 두 입체적이고 매력적인 캐릭터의 공방에 동승, 숨막히는 긴장감을 온몸으로 체감하는 독특한 영화적 체험을 할 수 있을 것이다.

    Professional Review of "I Saw the Devil (DVD) (3-Disc) (First Press Limited Edition) (Korea Version)"

    April 20, 2011

    One of the most eagerly anticipated films of 2010 also turned out to be one of the most controversial, with acclaimed Korean director Kim Jee Woon's I Saw the Devil making headlines as an extremely brutal affair that had to be cut for its original domestic release. A bleak revenge thriller revolving around a renegade agent hunting down the serial killer who butchered his woman, the film reunites Kim with top stars Lee Byung Hun, who last worked with the director on his Kimchi Western The Good, The Bad, The Weird and Choi Min Sik, who featured in his debut The Quiet Family. As expected given the multiple award winning talent involved, the film is every bit as thought provoking as it is intense, and sees Kim offering up a far darker take on his usual themes, though one which still comes with a coffin-black sense of humour - at least for those with the stomach for its scenes of gory horror.

    The film kicks off with the police having been on the trail of vicious multiple murderer Kyung Chul (Choi Min Sik) for many years without ever successfully managing to track him down. Shockingly, the evil man's next victim turns out to be the pregnant fiancee of government agent Soo Hyun (Lee Byung Hun), and after killing her in particularly unpleasant fashion he finds himself being hunted by a man with nothing to lose, and who might just be even more ruthless and violent than he is.

    There's no getting around the fact that I Saw the Devil is a spectacularly gruesome piece of cinema, filled with mutilation, dismemberment, rape, torture, cannibalism and more, with the screen being quite literally painted red for a fair amount of its running time. Kim has always shown himself a director with a talent for tension and for edge of the seat style nerve tweaking, and here he really notches things up in a sustained, cruel manner, the film gripping from start to finish. Although the plot effectively leaps from set piece to set piece, each out-doing the last in terms of carnage and perversity, this works well and is in-keeping with the film as a sadistic game of cat and mouse, the relationship between Kyung Chul and Soo Hyun developing unpredictably as it accelerates towards hellish self destruction. It's obvious from early on that pretty much the entire supporting cast are disposable, as the conflict between the two men relentlessly consumes everything and everyone that crosses their paths, good and evil alike.

    At the same time, the film is by no means an empty exercise in shock, and Kim uses the ever shifting hunter prey dynamic as a disturbing glimpse into the worst recesses of the human psyche. Although the film is frequently excessive, its violence and sense of threat keeps it oddly believable and grounded, and it never quite tips over into extremist exploitation. As well as Kim's assured direction and a tight, knowing script, this is to a large extent down to the superb, brave performances from the two leads, both of whom bring to convincing life what could easily have been one note characters. Although Lee Byung Hun perhaps has the less complex job of portraying Soo Hyun as a man gradually transforming into the monster he pursues, willingly sacrificing his soul in the name of revenge, he does this in mesmerising style, skilfully expressing a range of emotions often without words. Similarly, whilst Choi Min Sik's killer is one of the most loathsome to pollute cinema screens for some time, he never degenerates into a pantomime villain, and indeed part of the film's real horror comes from the fact that as suffers horribly at Soo Hyun's hands, the viewer is often forced to see things from his twisted perspective.

    Possibly the best thing about the film however is the fact that despite all the blood, guts and gazing into the Nietzschian abyss, Kim still manages to work in his trademark sense of ironic humour. Indeed, at least for those with a certain sensibility, the film is frequently hilarious, if for no other reason than it revolves around situations so perfectly grotesque that laughter is the only sensible reaction. Constructed with a near hysterical cruelty and featuring lashings of decidedly inappropriate slapstick, the film is the very definition of Grand Guignol exuberance, and like its protagonists walks a demented line between the civilised and the insanely macabre.

    I Saw the Devil certainly isn't a film for everyone, whether they be fans of Kim Jee Woon or the high profile stars or not, and viewers with a weak disposition should probably stay away. However, for those willing to submit to its wild, often quite abominable roller coaster ride of ghastly thrills, it stands as one of the most entertaining and well crafted films of 2010, confirming Kim not only as one of the best, but the bravest and most original directors working in Korean cinema today.

    April 29, 2011

    Evil lurks within us
    Korean filmmakers are known to produce quality movies about revenge, among other nice things. One of its finest output is Kim Jee Woon's controversial shockfest I Saw the Devil, which takes the audience on a harrowing journey into hell. The bleak, haunting action thriller is rightfully on its way to cult status, what with its unapologetic use of graphic violence and intense gore - even though Kim obviously didn't make it just to please fans of extreme cinema.

    Oldboy's Choi Min Sik is back on familiar ground and he is again on the receiving end of the wrath of an avenger who will stop at nothing to get even. But here the sheer power of his terrifying but engrossing performance as the personification of evil elevates the film's standing to another level. A schoolbus driver by day and serial rapist-killer by night, Choi's Kyung Chul is a hidden menace who kidnaps young, beautiful females and brutalizes them. In the opening scene, when his latest victim begs for leniency because she is pregnant, he mercilessly chops her up to pieces without blinking an eye.

    After the severed head of this poor woman is found, her fiancé, the quietly grieving special agent Soo Hyun (Lee Byung Hun in an amazingly restrained performance), tracks down the suspects to seek retribution. His professional methods soon lead him to Kyung Chul, and the fun begins as the predator becomes the prey. In their first encounter inside a greenhouse, Soo Hyun beats his foe half dead, but then leaves him without finishing him off. It's not over yet, not so easy. His plan is to make him suffer: staying hot on his tail, Soo Hyun would repeatedly show up to inflict more pain on Kyung Chul, then set him free in order to catch him again later.

    The scheme works, but it also pushes a good man down a path of no return. The message of I Saw the Devil seems to be that everyone more or less has the seeds of evil inside them. Soo Hyun's obsession for torturing the monster continues to feed his inner demon, and to pull off the ultimate revenge, he has to cross the line, eventually turning into the very thing he fights against. Meanwhile, the incredibly resilient Kyung Chul finds a way to elude his relentless pursuer and turns the table on him...

    As this gory game of cat and mouse escalates, Kyung Chul creates a bloodier mayhem, and the audience's disgust for this rotten-to-the-core scumbag deepens, such that Soo Hyun's morally ambiguous actions seem more justified. If you are like this editor, who roots for Soo Hyun and cheers him on for his increasingly sadistic measures (e.g. the twisted satisfaction when our hero rips the jaw off a loathsome killer), then you are probably the audience Kim made this film for. Posing questions without offering ready answers, the thought-provoking tale of vengeance urges the audience to look into their heart.

    There, did you see the devil?

    Murder, Torture, Revenge. Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
    One man Kyung Chul (Choi Min Sik) who seeks pleasure by rape and butchering his victims. Another man Soo Hyun (Lee Byung Hun) who seeks revenge on Kyung Chul by tracking him down torturing him over and over instead of killing him. Will Soo Hyun ease his pain and suffering by hunting down kyung chul to torture him only to let him go to repeat the hunt over and over . Or will Kyung Chul have the last laugh to make Soo Hyun regret for letting him live each time.

    I Saw the Devil Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
    I was lucky enough to see it in the theaters when it played a limited engagement. I can honestly say I have seen the Devil. While this movie is a bit long at times it is simply an amazing movie. If you are looking for something dark, twisted, evil with lots of blood and torture then this movie is right up your alley. Hollywood could never come up with a movie like this.

    the acting is pretty good. Not stellar but there are moments of greatness that overcome any faults that might come along. I will warn you this movie is not for everyone. In the theater you could see people squirm in their seats during certain scenes.
