Every summer it's horror movie time in Korea, but this year, BE WITH ME captured attention not by scaring the pants off its audience, but by offering a fresh take on the omnibus ghost film by some of Korea's hottest young directors who take the traditional horror movie in a funnier, more experimental and more moving direction.

These three stories about ghosts star a cast of some of the best young actors in Korea including KIM Kot-Bi (BREATHLESS) and KIM Ye-Ri (PAJU) and they center around the loneliness of the ghost. From the tale of two best friends (and the boy who got one of them pregnant) competing for a single slot at a top college, to the story of a boy branded as a loser because he sees dead people, this is one of the freshest takes on the genre to come along in years.


  1. Wonder if this is a reaction to the popularity of Thai Phobia films? In any case, sounds good. Hope to see it soon!

  2. Yeah, wish I could make it myself. Unfortunately the NYC MTA is doing extensive work on the only subway line near me and it'd take forever to get there and back. So I personally am going to have to take a pass on this screening.
