CJ E&M‘s new movie “Monster” will be released in Los Angeles!
In this movie, Lee Min-Ki (“Shut Up Flower Boy Band“) will play the role of Tae-Soo, a heartless murderer who methodically covers up his tracks, while Kim Go-Eun (“A Muse“) will be Bok-Soonm, a girl who is known as the neighborhood “psycho-bitch”, but it doesn’t affect her since she only cares about working hard and saving up money for her younger sister’s education.
Bok-Soon runs a street stall while taking care of her younger sister. She may not be the brightest girl but what she lacks in intelligence, she makes up for in uncontrollable rage. She’s infamously known as the “psycho bitch” in her neighborhood.
Her relatively peaceful life with her sister is disrupted when they cross paths with a serial killer named Tae-Soo. Tae-Soo kills Bok-Soon’s sister because she may have stumbled upon the truth of his murderous lifestyle.
Bok-Soon’s rage consumes her completely, leading her to plot her revenge on the killer. Meanwhile, Tae-Soo vows to tie up his only loose end—Bok-Soon. Bok-Soon’s descent into revenge and electrifying struggle with Tae-Soo culminates in a riveting conclusion. Who will emerge alive—hot-blooded Bok-Soon or cold-hearted Tae-Soo?
The movie is directed by Hwang In-Ho, who also directed “Two Faces of My Girlfriend” and “To Catch a Virgin Ghost“. According to him, “Monster is an in-depth character study and portrayal of human emotions focusing on loneliness and neglect.”. He also stated that “A lot of thrillers focus on the chase, action, and mystery. But, Monster’s focal point is on its well defined characters.”
“Monster” will be released in Los Angeles (CGV Cinemas) on March 14th after the official release in South Korea on March 13th. Have you liked what you heard so far? Check out its thrilling trailer below:
