YesAsia Editorial Description

Director Park Dae Min's greatly hyped 2009 period crime thriller Private Eye revolves around a serial murder case in early 20th-century Korea. Award-winning actor Hwang Jung Min (A Man Who Was Superman) plays a suave private detective chasing after the killer along with popular actress Uhm Ji Won (Epitaph) and up-and-coming actor Ryu Deok Hwan, last seen playing a serial murderer in Our Town. Set in 1910 Seoul, Private Eye plays on both style and suspense, writing a twist-filled murder mystery amid atmospheric period details.

Medical student Kwang Su (Ryu Deok Hwan) comes upon a corpse in the woods, and secretly uses it to practice dissection. But he's in deep water when it turns out the deceased is the son of a powerful politician. Afraid of getting blamed for the death, Kwang Su asks private detective Jin Ho (Hwang Jung Min) for help. A small-time PI who travels around resolving petty disputes, Jin Ho teams up with Kwang Su to try to track the real killer. They soon get a lead when another body shows up in the woods....

    SYNOPSIS
    방안은 피로 흥건하고 시체는 사라졌다! 조선을 뒤흔든 미궁의 살인사건!
    한적한 뒤뜰에 위치한 방안은 온통 피로 흥건하고 그 방의 주인인 ‘민수현’은 감쪽같이 사라졌다. 그의 아버지는 아들을 찾기 위해 고액의 현상금을 내걸고, 출세에 급급한 종로서 순사부장인 영달(오달수)은 민수현을 찾는데 혈안이 된다. 한편 그 시각, 의학도 광수(류덕환)는 해부실습을 위해 우연히 주워온 시체가 알고 보니 민수현이었던 것을 알게 된다. 살인 누명을 쓸 위기에 처한 그는 사설 탐정 진호(황정민)를 찾아가 사건을 의뢰하고 거액의 현상금에 혹한 진호는 뛰어난 의학지식을 가진 광수를 조수 삼아 사건을 맡기로 한다.

    탐정 진호와 의학도 광수, 여류발명가 순덕, 남겨진 5개의 단서를 추적하다!
    살해된 민수현의 방에서 발견된 것은 백색가루, 그리고 기묘한 형상의 ‘카라쿠리’ 인형. 진호와 광수는 신분을 감춘 채 여류발명가로 활동하고 있는 순덕(엄지원)을 찾아가 수사에 필요한 만시경과 은청기(‘은밀히 듣는 기계’)를 받아 본격적인 수사를 시작한다. 그리고 정체불명의 백색가루가 ‘모루히네’라는 것을 알고는 이것이 비밀리에 유통되고 있는 주사옥에 잠입하여 민수현의 죽기 직전 마지막 행적지가 바로 곡예단이라는 사실을 파악하게 된다.
    그러던 중 두 번째 살인사건이 발생한다. 피해자는 다름아닌 최고의 권력을 자랑하는 경무국장. 더군다나 민수현이 유기된 장소와 같은 곳에 버려진 것. 연속된 살인으로 수사에 심한 압력을 받은 영달은 가짜 범인을 만들어 수사를 종결시키려 하고, 동일범에 의한 연쇄 살인임을 깨달은 진호와 광수는 경무국장의 시신에서 새로운 단서인 피 묻은 천조각을 발견하게 되는데...

    살인사건 뒤에 숨겨진 엄청난 비밀과 음모를 파헤치다!
    남겨진 단서들을 가지고 곡예단으로 향한 진호와 광수. 불길한 기운이 느껴지는 그곳에서 이제 더 이상의 살인을 막기 위해 사건의 비밀을 풀어야만 하는데…
    전대미문의 살인 사건과 곡예단, 모루히네와 카라쿠리 인형, 피 묻은 천 조각과 두 구의 시체! 도대체 이들의 관계는 무엇이며 범인은 누구인가! 진실에 접근해갈수록 그 누구도 상상치 못했던 엄청난 비밀과 음모가 기다리고 있는데…

    Professional Review of "Private Eye (DVD) (2-Disc) (Korea Version)"

    September 10, 2009

    Private Eye offers a twist on the recent trend of modern noir detective stories by adopting a period setting, making for a change from the usual tortured cops, car chases and neon alleyways. The film marks the debut outing for Korean director Park Dae Min, and was a high profile production, boasting an impressive cast including the award winning Hwang Jung Min (A Man Who Was Superman), young rising star Ryu Deok Hwan (who recently impressed as a murderer in Our Town) and popular actress Uhm Ji Won (also in the excellent horror opus Epitaph.

    The film is set in Seoul in 1910, and begins as a young medical student called Kwang Su (Ryu Deok Hwan) discovers a corpse in the woods, and decides to take it home to use for anatomy practice. Unfortunately for him, the body turns out to be that of the missing son of a politician, who will stop at nothing to have him found. Understandably fearful of being accused of the killing, Kwang Su hires private detective Jin Ho (Hwang Jung Min) to track down the real murderer. Jin Ho takes on the case, which is a step up from his usual work tracking down cheating wives, though matters rapidly become more complicated as further bodies turns up and it becomes clear that there is a deadly conspiracy afoot.

    The central mystery of Private Eye is an engaging one, essential for this type of film, and though it progresses via a series of well-timed revelations rather than thanks to any real detective work on Jin Ho's part, it manages to keep the viewer interested. There are a number of twists and turns, some of which are predictable and a few of which are pleasingly left-field, and Park does a good job of switching the focus from the question of "who?" to the more important "why?" as the film progresses from simple murder mystery to sinister conspiracy. Although fairly typical for this type of film, Jin Ho makes for a good protagonist, mainly since whilst Park allows him enough room to be roguish and slightly comical, he is basically played straight rather than for laughs. Hwang Jung Min does manage to convey a vague sense of moral conflict, or at least of unfulfilled ambitions, which proves essential during the latter stages when things turn more serious. The film does build gradually from light hearted shenanigans and the photographing of infidelity to something much darker, and by the time all the cards are on the table it does venture into some pretty harsh territory and grim subject matter. Ryu Deok Hwan is also on good form, managing to avoid coming across as too much of a green youngster, though unfortunately Uhm Ji Won is rather wasted in a pointless role as Jin Ho's distant possible love interest, who does at least have the honour of providing him with some fairly useful gadgets.

    Although the film has a familiar premise - a cocky though brilliant sleuth, his young sidekick, his somewhat detached relationship with a mysterious woman, and his problems with authority figures - the period setting does give it rather a different feel. Director Park's style a mix of polish and grit, which works well to ground the film whilst allowing for some handsome production values and impressive visuals. He shows a keen eye for detail, bringing the historical setting to life without being overly ornate, making good use of both urban and rural settings. The film certainly benefits from being more grounded and realistic than other similarly set efforts, and it makes for atmospheric and involving viewing. Park helps to keep things moving along at a good pace by throwing in a good amount of action alongside all the head scratching, with some impressive set pieces, most notably a Bourne-style marketplace chase scene, complete with characters leaping over ramshackle rooftops. The film has its fair share of rough moments, with some occasional scenes of strong violence, bloody surgery and rotten corpses. Combined with a subplot revolving around drug abuse, this gives it a valuable hard edge which again serves very well during the final act.

    As such, Private Eye is the kind of film which offers viewers the best of both worlds, working well both as a fairly straightforward and entertaining popcorn hit, and as a well crafted and tough thriller. Slickly directed, its period setting helps it to stand out from the recent rush of other noir-themed films, as does Hwang Jung Min's charismatic lead performance, making it a highly enjoyable and occasionally quite suspenseful thriller.

    Gripping tale of detection Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
    Hwang Jung Min stars as Jin Ho in "Private Eye" and the film succeeds largely due to Hwang's swaggering, cocky performance. Jin Ho is a downmarket private detective in 1910 Seoul, skulking in alleys to sneak photos of cheating spouses. He strives to save money to journey to America where he hopes to strike it rich. One day medical student Kwang Su (Ryu Deok Hwan) seeks Jin Ho's services and promises to provide Jin Ho a big enough payday that he will be able to passage to America. But Kwang Su's problems are much greater than just a cheating spouse.

    In order to learn human anatomy, Kwang Su has been carving up a corpse that he stumbled upon in the woods. He is stunned to learn that the body he's been dissecting is that of the son of a high-ranking government poobah. Kwang Su decides that his only hope of escaping blame for the son's death is to find the murderer ... and he wants Jin Ho to help him find the miscreant. Tracking the killer leads down a path filled with corrupt cops, opium addicts, overbearing Japanese colonists, child abusers, and, strangest of all, knife-throwing circus performers.

    Director Park Dae Min keeps the pace brisk and nicely leavens the chilling facts of the case with occasional doses of humor. Hwang Jung Min sets the perfect tone with his fearless performance and is ably supported by Ryu Deok Hwan and by Uhm Ji Won as Jin Ho's former girlfriend who devotes her free time to science. While some of the feats of detection are a bit of a stretch and the plot becomes overly complex, the movie's interesting period atmosphere, strong characters, and solid performances make for a winning cinematic experience. I recommend "Private Eye" very highly.
