YesAsia Editorial Description

Move over, Pang Brothers! Twin brothers Kim Gok and Kim Sun direct the horror film White: Melody of Death, the first of the 2011 Korean summer horrors to arrive on DVD. The directing duo previously generated buzz on the festival circuit with their innovative indies Self Referential Traverse: Zeitgeist and Engagement, Anti Gas Skin, and Exhausted. Their first commercial film delivers the chills and thrills for genre fans, while also slyly sending up pop idol culture. T-ara's Ham Eun Jung (Dream High), singer May Doni, and up-and-coming actresses Choi Ah Ra (Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance) and Jin Se Yun (It's OK, Daddy's Girl) star as struggling girl group idols who fall under the curse of a mysterious song that vaults them to fame, only to pull them back down in bloodcurdling manner. Girl group After School and 2PM's Jun Ho make cameo appearances in the film.

Girl group Pink Dolls is formed by four members: dancer Eun Joo (Ham Eun Jung), insecure Jenny (Jin Se Yun), plastic surgery-obsessed Ah Rang (Choi Ah Ra), and singing-impaired Shin Ji (May Doni). The girls have a tough time standing out until they remake "White", a song of unknown origins. "White" becomes a hit, and the Pink Dolls turn into overnight sensations. The more popular they get, the more jealous and competitive the girls become as they fight for lead singer status. Mysterious incidents befall the members, and as they fall victim one by one, Eun Joo discovers that the song "White" is actually cursed.

This edition comes with making-of, deleted scenes, character featurettes, premiere, trailer, and other extras.

Professional Review of "White: Melody of Death (DVD) (First Press Limited Edition) (Korea Version)"

October 13, 2011

White: Melody of Death (aka White: Melody of the Curse) was one of the first big Korean horror releases of Summer 2011, directed by twin brother directing duo Kim Gok and Kim Sun. Former indie favourites known for a series of inventive festival hits including Self Referential Traverse: Zeitgeist and Engagementm the helmers bring a similarly creative feel to their mainstream debut, spicing up the usual genre thrills and chills with some flashy visuals and a fun premise that sees the expected long haired ghost menacing a girl band. Fittingly, the film features a couple of real life popstars in its cast, headlined by T-ara member Ham Eun Jung (Dream High), and with support from singer May Doni, along with rising actresses Choi Ah Ra (Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance) and Jin Se Yun, plus K-pop cameos from the group After School and 2PM's Jun Ho.

The film follows fictional girl group Pink Dolls, comprised of former backup dancer and team leader Eun Joo (Ham Eun Jung), insecure Je-ni (Jin Se Yun), the young Ah Rang (Choi Ah Ra), and tough rapper Shin Ji (May Doni). After failing yet again to break into the charts, their manager gives them one last chance, moving them to a new and fancy studio, which just happens to have been the site of a mysterious fire. While poking around, Eun Joo finds a video of an old song called "White" a catchy tune which the group remakes and claims for their own. Although this finally propels them to pop stardom, they soon start to fall foul of a series of weird accidents, leading Eun Joo to believe that the tune may in fact be cursed.

The world of Korean pop and girl bands makes for an interesting choice of subject matter, and even without the ghostly goings-on, White: Melody of Death is filled backstabbing, deceit and jealousy, with much of the running time revolving around the girls trying to one-up each other and fighting over who will be chosen as the lead singer of the band. Directors Gok and Sun certainly make great use of the premise, and at times the film feels less like a horror film and more like a wicked satire of the music industry, with an authentically snarky feel throughout, the inter band rivalries effectively upping the tension. At the same time, the girl group theme also boosts the film by providing a fine excuse for throwing in plenty of bouncy pop music, colourful costumes and eye candy. Such amusements help to keep things moving at a good pace while neatly distracting from the basic familiarity of the plot itself, a very basic modern Asian ghost story, complete with vengeful spirit and past wrongs needing righted.

Gok and Sun prove themselves amongst the more energetic and enthusiastic directors to have tackled the genre of late, giving the film a flashy feel, with lots of quick editing and an impressive use of strong, lurid colours. The film is pretty hallucinogenic in places, with some wild visions and dream sequences, and although these are largely gratuitous and don't make much sense, they do serve well to show off Gok and Sun's visual talents and generate a suitably surreal, sinister atmosphere. Although most of the frights are telegraphed and unlikely to scare genre veterans, the film as a whole is very imaginative and enjoyable, with a good amount of supernatural action and a handful of pleasingly creative death scenes.

This fits well with the overall mood, and whilst scarcely original, White: Melody of Death is definitely one of the more satisfying and dynamic Korean horrors of the last year, as well as a surprisingly effective send-up of the country's cutthroat music industry. Drawing upon their indie experiences, Kim Gok and Kim Sun are clearly directors unafraid to experiment a little, and the result is a film which whilst perhaps leaning towards style over substance, makes for fun and frequently exciting viewing.

Best Horror I have seen in years. Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
Living in America I have seen plenty of horrible horror movies. I actually stopped watching them due to fact I started laughing at them. At about the age of 12, they no longer got my adrenilane pumping. I puchased this movie with out any preconceptions of it being good or bad. But I must say. It has become one my favorite movie. Any move that can give me the creeps and actually make me jump, is a good movie. I have personally recommended this to several people. And will recommend it to anyone who likes movies that get your blood flowing.

Gave me the creeps Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
I'm really big on watching horror movies and seen plenty from chinese, japanese, english, and korean. . Although I didn't think it was really scary but I did the shivers during one scene. Heck I even had nightmares after watching this. Rarely I would get that creeped out watching a horror movie. I think it had to do with the song called White and the zombie style dance. rather freaky

A Berserker Called White Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
What do you get with a fusion of “Ringu” and K-pop? Well, “White – Curse of the Melody” probably. But “White” is more about the manic need for a FTW (For The Win) with K-pop groups and intense ‘hellish’ competition to become successful and significant, than anything else. And this plot’s ‘hellishness’ is more lampooned than pop reality. Eun-Ju, Je-ni, Ah-rang and Shin-ji of Pink Dolls, after boring an audience with a lack lustre song/dance performance, drop to rock bottom. But to boost morale, a sponsor endorses capital for a new training studio which Pink Dolls move into to improve their pop skills; a studio built over the site of an existing one destroyed by fire and killing several occupants. But PD’s leader Eun-ju (T-ara’s Eun-jung :D), while cleaning a closet mirror in their posh new training studio, discovers a VHS tape inside with the words “White” written on it. Later in studio digs Eun-ju watches the ghostly grainy VHS tape of a girl band performing ‘White’ on a TV stage. Eun-ju and her agency rep both liking the ‘ghostly’ song/dance routine have ‘White’ tweaked for a new TV showcase, which propels Pink Dolls to overnight success.

Trouble is when PD perform ‘White’ a curse is triggered (like the Ringu thingamajig), seemingly related to a suicide of the lead girl member featured on the grainy VHS. Eun-ju later discovers that the videotape girl had wrote the ‘White’ song so to have strings pulled by management for her to be centre stage singer, but is mutilated for this ‘deceit’ by her troupe members, who all then perish in a mysterious studio fire; a building where PD’s new studio is built. Likewise, Je-ni, Ah-rang and Shin-ji bicker over who should be centre singer (centre? 4 members?) quibbling over looks, singing skills and neck dance routines. Only Eun-ju tries to keep the peace. But as PD girls share centre status and sing ‘White’, each become terror struck by the mind force of a malevolent/revengeful ghost. Firstly the ghost strikes Je-ni who as to reach a high pitch vocal level. Suffering a nervous sweat condition and frightened of failure, Je-ni is then found hanging by a cord in the new recording studio by Eun-ju – screaming a blooded pitch. The ghost curse then afflicts Ah-rang/Shin-ji respectively with similar self ‘fears’ when they become centre singers, leading up to Eun-ju, a once backing dancer like the videotape girl. To exorcise the curse Eun-ju searches its origin from the VHS tape, before she too dies in a horrible fire.
