A new kind of Korean film has been born with "Private Eye". As you can guess from the title, this film is about the adventures of Private Eye Hong Jin-ho and his two assistants: med student Gwang-su and inventor Sun-deok. Let's follow them as they delve into a mysterious murder case.

As Joseon Dynasty draws to a close, a mysterious incident occurs at the home of a top official, leaving a room soaked in blood, but without a body. Gwang-su, a medical-student-in-training, is appalled when he sees a photo of the missing man.

To his horror, the man in the photo looks just like the body he picked up the other night to study anatomy with. Gwang-su goes to Private Eye Jin-ho, seeking help to avoid any false charges. For money, Jin-ho will take on nearly any job, but not a murder case. Gwang-su stops the departing Jin-ho only by offering an immense sum of money.

[Interview : Park Dae-min Director of Private Eye ] "Hong Jin-ho is the first Private Eye to take the stage in Korean filmography. It will be fun for the audience to see these new kinds of characters on screen".

And at the end of their investigation lies an even bigger secret.
