Actor Lee Jeong-jin's Song Picks 2010/12/01, Source,
Actor Lee Jeong-jin [10Asia/Chae Ki-won]
"You might end up kissing your acting career good bye". This is what veteran comedian Lee Kyung-kyu said to actor Lee Jeong-jin when he first appeared on KBS variety show "Happy Sunday" in March 2009. At the time he was being admitted as one of the regular members of the show's segment "What Makes a Man" and it was a joke thrown to Lee who would be the youngest among the crew fit to be called a middle-aged men's club but not completely groundless given his position at the time.

A family moves into the suburbs of Gyunggi-do. A while later a girl named Mi-rim goes missing and chaos takes over the village. Mi-rimís father searches for his daughter and while visiting the police station he stumbles upon a criminal record from one of the family members that just moved. Mi-rimís father and the villagers threaten and pacify Sejin and his family.
The film follows the genre conventions of a thriller yet it also contains peopleís prejudices and oppression. Sejinís past record as a convict rids him of his individuality and his sister is on the brink of losing her job as a kindergarten teacher. The film questions what is true violence. The result, violence does not just include person to person, but can be silent brought on by a community that leads to a sacrifice of an individual. Such is the typical mechanism, murdering individuality through the violence of a group. (LEE Sang-yong)
