Seung-hoon (Cho Jin-woong) is a doctor who has seen better days. Relegated to performing colonoscopy procedures at a neighborhood clinic, he spends his nights in a tiny apartment, and struggles to reconnect with his estranged wife. But one day while operating on a patient (who happens to be his landlord, and the butcher downstairs), the man reveals details of a gruesome murder. Before he knows it Seung-woon is drawn into a murder mystery that has him questioning his own sense of reality.
One of the smartest Korean thrillers to hit theaters in the past few years, BLUEBEARD will keep you guessing till the end. Cho Jin-woong (THE HANDMAIDEN, ASSASSINATION, A HARD DAY) truly gives one of the best performances of his career as Seung-hoon, a man on the edge of sanity. While the supporting cast including Kim Dae-Myung (INSIDE MEN, THE BEAUTY INSIDE) as the creepy butcher’s son and Song Young-chang (THIRST, WOOCHI, VETERAN, KUNDO) as the retired detective, also showcase exceptional acting chops. With a serial killer is on the loose in the streets of Seoul, will Seung-hoon catch the butcher in the act? Or will he lose his life trying?
