YesAsia Editorial Description

Following his acclaimed performance as a father seeking the truth behind his daughter's death in the television thriller The Chaser, veteran actor Son Hyun Ju returned to the silver screen to play a father who must protect his family from an unknown threat. Directed by Huh Jung, Hide and Seek brought in over five million admissions at the box office with a nerve-wracking mystery that feeds on a primal fear: We're not safe in our own homes.

Successful cafe owner Sung Soo (Son Hyun Ju) has a seemingly perfect life with his wife (Jeon Mi Sun, The Executioner), children and luxury apartment. But he suffers from mysophobia and harbors a dark secret concerning his estranged older brother. After hearing that his brother has gone missing, Sung Soo goes to check his brother's rundown apartment and sees strange codes scrawled everywhere. A scared woman who lives nearby, Joo Hee (Moon Jung Hee, Deranged), tells him that his brother is watching her daughter. Soon, Sung Soo notices that the same strange codes are appearing around his home. A dangerous game of Hide and Seek has begun.

One day, he hears that his estranged brother, Sung-cheol, has gone missing. Feeling guilty and somehow responsible, he visits his brother’s apartment despite the fact that he has kept Sung-cheol’s existence from his family for a very long time.

The shabby half empty apartment complex has strange symbols inscribed under the door bells. The residents look terrified, hurriedly locking themselves in as Sung-soo and his family appears at the building. There are rumors that some bizarre people have squatted in the empty flats. And even the next door neighbor joo-hee (Moon Jung-hee) goes paranoid when asked about his brother. Although she showed exaggerated kindness at first after seeing his family’s expensive clothes and the fancy car.

Ever since they returned home from the trip, a feeling of dark uneasiness linger around the family. Strange things start to happen. His house keys disappear, someone tries to break in when only his children are at home. Then the engravings under his doorbell appear with a bloody red V-sign. Mysterious whispers are heard that says. “This is my home, now this is my home”, terrifying the entire family. With his family quivering in fear, Sung-soo’s compulsive ness and nightmares gets worse.

Professional Review of "Hide And Seek (2013) (DVD) (Malaysia Version)"

November 25, 2013

This professional review refers to Hide and Seek (DVD) (2-Disc) (First Press Limited Edition) (Korea Version)
First time Korean writer director Huh Jung gives audiences one less place to feel safe with Hide and Seek, a novel take on the home invasion thriller and urban paranoia genres. Revolving around the sinister premise of a man who comes to believe another family is living unseen in his home, the film stars veteran Son Hyun Ju (Secretly, Greatly) in the lead, with support from actresses Jeon Mi Sun (The Executioner) and Moon Jung Hee (Deranged). Despite being a relatively low-budget affair without a big name director or stars, the film emerged as one of the year's biggest domestic box office hits, quickly pulling in more than five million admissions.

Son Hyun Ju plays Sung Soo, a businessman who lives in a luxury building with his wife Min Ji (Jeon Mi Sun) and two young children. One day, he receives word that his brother has disappeared, a revelation which sends shockwaves through his family, who were all unaware that his sibling even existed. Refusing to divulge the reason behind their estrangement, he heads to his brother's dilapidated apartment building, which has been marked for demolition and all but abandoned, with odd codes and symbols having been scratched everywhere. Though he fails to find his brother, Sung Soo meets Joo Hee (Moon Jung Hee), the woman next door, who claims that he is lurking around and spying on her and her daughter. Meanwhile, a maniac wearing black clothes and a motorbike helmet starts attacking people, targeting Sung Soo's family in their own home.

Hide and Seek is one of those rare cases when a director gets pretty much everything right and hits all the right genre buttons - even more remarkable here given that it marks Huh Jung's debut. A textbook case of how to make a suspense thriller really work, the film is a fun, gripping ride, from its earlier scenes of slow-burn menace through to the enjoyably over the top and hysterical final act. Huh does a fantastic job of suspending disbelief, keeping the viewer wholly involved despite an essentially daft premise, and skilfully navigating around potential plot holes, showing an assured grasp of the material and smart sense of timing when it comes to revelations. The central mystery is a good one, and Huh also suggests, though doesn't overdo, levels of interpretation, and it's quite possible to read the film as a satire or sly social critique of sorts, though most viewers will likely be content just to go along for the thrills, of which there are plenty.

The film's low(ish) budget never shows, with some great use of locations and some suitably moody visuals, the rundown apartment block and Sung Soo's modern building making for a nice contrast. Huh plays on this for maximum unease, and the film benefits from lots of interesting little touches, the weird codes and symbols adding a certain ominous dread, and though they ultimately don't amount to much, the film is all the more atmospheric and cryptic for them. Crucially, these combine well with action and violence, and the film has a hard edge, packing in lots of beatings and stabbings, the motorbike helmet wearing psycho serving as a very effective and energetic villain. Sung Soo certainly ends up taking a fair amount of punishment, and Huh manages to keep the viewer never quite sure of whether or not things will work out happily.

Underscoring all this is some solid character writing, and this really helps to up the tension and to pull the viewer in. Sung Soo is a great and at least semi-unconventional protagonist, it being clear from the start that he's neither terribly normal nor terribly nice, with skeletons just waiting to tumble from his closet. Son Hyun Ju is great in the lead, and is very watchable throughout, his character shifting subtly throughout, as is Moon Jung Hee, who puts in a very interesting turn as the not hugely normal neighbour.

Whilst not revolutionary, Hide and Seek is a highly enjoyable and fast paced thriller, and one of the best films of its type from Korea in 2013. Huh Jung shows great promise with a neatly constructed and tightly directed debut, and it's hard to imagine any genre fans being disappointed with what it has to offer.

The desperate figure that plots in the shadows… Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
Pyeong-hwa (Ji-yeong III Kim), a young child talks about her derelict apartment block, of where squatters live and hide in occupant’s apartments without the owner ever realising the squatter’s presence. It seems a dangerous place, ghostly even. Eun-hye (Susanna Lo) moodily returns to her apartment, the same partly abandoned block as the child’s. Winding her way through a street of vagabonds into steam and filth Eun-hye eventually makes it to her damp and neglected apartment block, its grim symmetrical architecture overlooking a dingy central yard. But using the lift to reach her level, Eun-hye shares it silently and uncomfortably with a figure in black wearing a motorcycle helmet concealing the face. Both exiting the elevator the black figure walks in front of Eun-hye towards her apartment and then back again to an adjacent door. The woman knows her illusive next-door neighbour is a bit odd; probably a sexual deviant and one big reason why Eun-hye wants to get away from this awful block. Entering her apartment Eun-hye then sees her unused clothing tampered with and surely her odd neighbour as rummaged around her things. Storming out Eun-hye then bangs on the adjacent front door yelling at her neighbour to leave her things or she will call the police.

But by this disturbance Eun-hye then sees a little girl with an eye patch by an over-walk to the opposite sided apartments, Eun-hye telling the child to get back inside as its not a safe building to roam in - Eun-hye then goes back into her own apartment. Noticing she’d left her front door ajar, Eun-hye then sits down by her computer with its imposing screen eye camera pointing towards her front apartment door, and replays her computer’s surveillance camera footage. Watching her screen and ever paranoid of her helmeted neighbour, Eun-hye replays her rooms last moments while talking to the little girl outside her apt. Gulping her canned drink Eun-hye watches the helmeted figure enter her room, sit by her computer and even drink from her can, just a moment before. Nervously the woman looks at her drinks can beside her computer, that the helmeted figure had just drank from, Eun-hye’s heart palpitating as she realises her odd neighbour is now in her room. Looking behind her Eun-hye then sees the helmeted figure with an umbrella, blood dripping from its tip…she screams. But being a derelict and quietly dark block no one probably heard her apart from other fearful neighbours, who were too frightened to care.

…amongst hidden things Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
Café owner Sung-soo (Hyun-ju Son) suffers haunting nightmares and visions concerning his fear of unclean things and relating to a terrible childhood incident. Blighted by deep guilt about his estranged brother Seong-cheol (Won-hae Kim), Sung-soo then hears news that his missing brother has recently been located in an apartment block. Needing courage, Sung-soo travels with his wife Min-ji (Mi-seon Jeon) and their two children to the rundown apartment where Sung-soo discovers his brother’s belongings but no sign of Seong-cheol. Unusually Sung-soo notices small gender symbols of triangles, squares and circles beside each front door: - 1 woman, 1 man, 2 children or 1 woman by another door. But later enquiring from neighbours Sung-soo and Min-ji and their children encounter a terrified woman named Joo-hee (Jeong-hee Moon) who lives with her little daughter. Sung-soo asks Joo-hee about the wherebouts of his brother. But as soon as Sung-soo mentions the apartment Seong-cheol stayed in Joo-hee becomes furious telling Sung-soo his brother was dangerous and kept spying on her little daughter Pyeong-hwa. Bemused Sung-soo and his family then return back to their comfortable modern apartment life. But as they travel an ominous car driver follows the family back to their plush apartment…

‘Hide and Seek’ is a good dark thriller with a somewhat ‘supernatural’ edge considering Sung-soo’s ‘haunting’ demons and the ‘spectral’ figure of the motorcycle helmeted killer. Although the hidden villain seems like a dark ghost hounding Sung-soo and his family, this at times brutal thriller (with quite a manic ending) is grounded in grim reality and irony. A social divided one of two types of living apartments; a rundown festering abode contrasted by the spacious trappings of wealth. But the opener pans out expectation with a mixture of convoluted themes. Sung-soo’s childhood past as a nervous adoptee, his adult psychological fear of dripping pools of water (a ghost/poltergeist manifestation) and mysophobia relating to childhood guilt and a mental disorder hounded by the elementals of natural filth. The central motive for the killer also reminded me of a recent HK social horror film about apts, but I wont mention the title, as its synopsis would be a spoiler. Anyway, this is a good film to see with some good acting. This edition features a strong outer slipcase with script book (in Hangul) and 4 postcards. DVD movie disk is Region ALL, the extra disk region 3.
