YesAsia Editorial Description

Suspense and danger lurk everywhere, even at the South Pole!

Noted short film director Im Pil Seong (So-nyeon-gi and Baby) makes his feature film directorial debut with 2005's Antarctic Journal, a pulse pounding mystery thriller featuring two of South Korea's finest acting talents! Song Hang-Ko (The President's Barber and Memories of Murder) and Yu Ji-Tae (Natural City and Old Boy) headline the movie as the standout members of a six man Korean expedition group looking to boldly explore the furthest reaches of Antarctica. Song Hang Ko takes on the role of the zealous, goal-driven team captain, while Yu Ji Tae portrays a junior group member who signs up for the expedition out of respect for his idol, the captain. Their journey of discovery soon becomes something quite different than they first expected. On their forbidding venture into the great unknown, the team members experience a string of puzzling accidents. To their shock, the men suffer from inner conflict and terror at every turn, in this heart pounding, highly suspenseful thriller!

In order to craft what he calls "a surefire commercial blockbuster", director Im Pil Seong took five years to prepare the story for the silver screen. Using the latest in computer technology, the film seamlessly blends footage shot on location in New Zealand with indoor studio work filmed in South Korea to double for the film's Antarctic setting. Featuring a cameo appearance by Old Boy's Kang Jye Jung, Antarctic Journal is a character-driven narrative depicting the singular cruelty of those who would risk not only their lives, but the lives of others in order to achieve their own goals and desires. The remote arctic setting only escalates the fear factor in Antarctic Journal, a thriller about the dark side of human nature.

남극 최초의 미스터리 남극일기
아무도 갈 수 없는 곳, 그곳이 우리를 기다린다!

6명의 대원들, 남극을 향하다.
영하 80도의 혹한. 낮과 밤이 6개월씩 계속되는 남극. 탐험대장 최도형(송강호)을 비롯한 6명의 탐험대원은 ‘도달불능점’ 정복에 나선다. 해가 지기 전, ‘도달불능점’에 도착해야 하는 세계 최초 무보급 횡단. 이제 남은 시간은 60일. 세상에서 가장 힘들고 불가능해 보이는 도전이 시작된다!

탐험 22일째, 80년 前, 남극일기를 발견하다.
우연히 발견한 낡은 깃발. 그 아래에 묻혀있는 80년前 영국탐험대의 「남극일기」. 일기에 나오는 영국탐험대도 우리와 같은 6명. 그런데 팀의 막내인 민재(유지태)는 일기에서 이상한 점을 발견하게 되는데… 탐험대가「남극일기」를 발견한 후부터, 이들에게 알 수 없는 일들이 일어난다.

하나..둘… 남극 속으로 사라지다.
화이트 아웃 상태…바이러스가 살지 않는 남극에서 감기증상을 보이며 쓰러지는 대원, 갑자기 불어 닥친 돌풍(블리자드)와 함께 위험천만한 상황은 계속되는 남극. 어느 날부터 베이스캠프의 유진(강혜정)과의 교신도 끊어지고 통신 장비들이 말을 듣지 않는다. 동시에 베이스캠프에 송신되는 기이한 영상과 비상교신음들…’save us’눈앞에 보이는 것은 하얀 눈밖에 없는 공포에 순간, 하나..둘..대원들이 남극속으로 사라진다…

남극이 그들을 미치게 만들었다.
해지기 15일전. 이제 남은 시간도, 식량도 바닥이 난 상황. 계속되는 의문의 사건과 대원들의 희생에도 최도형의 그곳을 향한 의지는 점점 더 강해져만 가고… 남은 대원들은 두려움에 떨며 어둠이 이 대륙을 덮기 전에 이곳을 탈출 할 수 있기만을 바랄 뿐이다. 그곳에 가기만 하면 이 모든 악몽이 끝날 수 있는 것일까?

Similar to Ice Rain Customer Review Rated Bad 6 - 6 out of 10
Great landscape and snow scences but the storyline is kind of slow and simple. Similar to the film Ice Rain from previous year.
