Wow! My heart was beating so fast watching this thriller.
I had a quick prayer that this film was over soon because I can’t take it anymore.
Anyway, I will try to stop myself from giving too much spoiler from this film because I highly recommend this movie to anyone.
Jo Kyeong Min is a popular bank clerk, whose contract was about to end. She was offered to stay on for a greater role as well as more money, which were all good.
Kyeong Min though lately was feeling listless. She feels out of sort.
We see her having a good night sleep and in bed with a rather sexy man.
She was on the counter dealing with the queuing customers.
A man was her next client. She asked him where he lived in a friendly way and she was starting to give him information on the products that the bank offered which could benefit the customers. She realised that they lived in the same area.
One of her colleagues checked the man’s information for anti-money laundering protocol and noticed that he does not have much money to bank.
Suddenly Kyeong Min stopped selling him more of their products which was noticed immediately by the man, who became angry and insulted. He made a scene that because he had no money they treat him differently. He was harassing Kyeong Min to go out for a coffee with him as he said they were not strangers, being neighbours and all.
Her handsome colleague, Kim Seong Ho, had to intervene and called the security guards to take the man, Kim Gi Jeong, away.
When Kyeong Min got home, she noticed that some things in her studio apartment were not how the way she left it.
One night, she was just about to sleep when someone tried to open her locked door, those digital smart lock kind.
She called the police, who had said that they can’t do anything for lack of evidence. Apparently, she had a bit of a reputation for calling in the police for minor things.
It was another day at the bank. She had to do overtime and she missed the bus. She was surprised by Kim Gi Jeong, who was trying to force her to go for a coffee with him.
It was good that her handsome colleague, Kim Seong Ho, who was passing in his car and intervened.
Kim Seong Ho gave her a lift home. She arrived to a very dark room as the electric was off. She was just trying what to do with the light when there was a knock on her door. It was Kim Seong Ho saying that he had her purse with him which she left in his car.
She opened the door and realised why he knew her room number. She quickly told him that she was going to get them coffee.
She went downstairs to call and wait for the police.
When they turned up, they accompany her up and when they opened her door they found Kim Seong Ho dead.
Kyeong Min became a suspect of the murder of her colleague. She also lost her job with the bank.
And now the non-stop thrill really begins… edge of seat in many scenes.
