Spellbound (오싹한 연애)

오싹한 연애 (O-ssak-han Yeon-ae)

Directed by Hwang In-ho (황인호)

Screenplay by

Melodrama Romance

114min | Release date in South Korea :

Formerly known as "Chilling Romance" on HanCinema
“I see dead people” is a common phrase used in parody, but if it were true, as it is for the leading lady in “Spellbound,” it would be a shockingly terrifying trait to hold.
Ever since she was young, Yeo-ri (Son Ye-jin), has had the unnatural ability to see ghosts, and when they do appear, usually when she has company, unexpected things occur to the people around her. Yeo-ri chooses to isolate herself from the outside world but is approached by a street magician named Jo-goo (Lee Min-ki), who offers her a job in his show.

One year passes, and Yeo-ri ends up playing a part in the magician’s horror-themed act, in which she plays a ghost in a closet. Every day, Jo-goo’s staff successfully close the show and invite Yeo-ri for drinks, but she always rejects their offer. She is fully aware what will happen if she gets close to people.
When eventually Yeo-ri opens up to Jo-goo about her tragic and lonely life, things start to change for the both of them. Can Jo-Goo help her find a way out? Or will he be chased away by the ghosts like all of the other people in Yeo-ri’s life?
'Spellbound' is directed by Hwang In-ho, who had wrote '2 Faces of My Girlfriend' (2007) and 'Love Phobia' (2006).

      HanCinema's Korean Box Office Review (2011.01.13 ~ 2012.01.15) Chris Miller's "Puss in Boots" captured a third of the ticket sales this past weekend to deny "Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol" a fifth week at the top.

    • South Korean Box Office in 2011

      2012/01/14, Source,
      Korean cinema expert Darcy Paquet looks back at the results of 2011's box office with some unexpected hits and misses, the rise of independent features, and how audiences confirmed they value story over spectacle. Although the number crunchers in Hollywood estimate that US theatrical admissions sank to their lowest level since 1995, things were not so gloomy in Korea. With an estimated 160 million tickets sold (more precise figures will become available at a later date), it appears that Korea has approached or broken the modern-day record for admissions. In 2010, total admissions stopped at 146.8 million. In monetary terms, 2011 was certainly the best year ever, given the 3D surcharge and rising average ticket prices. Americans may be growing tired of the theatrical movie-going experience, but young Koreans still crowd the multiplexes,...More

    reative and interesting. Yet, there are so many stops, the movie never takes off. Another reviewer said, "loses momentum halfway." This film makes a brave attempt to mash difficult genres. The end result is a dish that is hard to swallow, but edible.
