The Devil's Game (더 게임)

더 게임 (Deo Ge-im)

Directed by Yoon In-ho (윤인호)

Screenplay by


116min | Release date in South Korea :


A struggling artist Hee-do is offered a million dollar to bet his life if he loses a game against a rich old man named No-shik who is dying from a terminal disease. The game is to dial any random number and tell whether it would be male or female who takes the call before the phone gets answered. Hee-do calls “Female” and No-shik “Male.” It turns out the call-answerer is a drag queen and Hee-do loses. After a month of a brain operation, No-shik wakes up in Hee-do’s body and Hee-do does in No-shik’s. With Hee-do’s young healthy body, No-shik is now the man of health and wealth, let alone romance with the clueless Hee-do’s fiancé. Meanwhile, No-shik’s ex-wife convinces the frustrated Hee-do to help her lay out a scheme to revenge upon No-shik by revealing the truth. However, the woman is found dead not long after in No-shik’s office building. Hee-do comes to another showdown with No-shik and makes the second bet that could return his lost body if he wins and could lose his memories about his fiancé to No-shik if he fails. Each calls out random numbers and waits for the voice to be heard.

I'm confused...[ok spoiler ahead to those who haven't watched this yet..don’t read further] to me it seems that...
the "bad guy" lost the bet so he asked to do the surgery where the memory of the young guy is put into his body (and therefore the original guy's memory is erased and he dies as an old man

and so that's him (the bad guy) at the end just with the memory of the original guy..but he only found out he's his son before the operation so he didn't have a chance to rethink it in a way it's kinda the same thing as switching back the brains only their personalities stay the same which explains how he only wants to sleep and smokes in the same way as that guy.

..OR..they did switch back...but he continues to smoke because his body got used to it..altho we haven't seen the guy smoke before in the film he may have already smoked before...
