Most Anticipated Korean Films of 2016

19. The Tooth and the Nail
이와 손톱
Dir: Jung Sik (Epitaph, 2007)
Cast: Ko Soo (The Front Line, 2011), Kim Ju-hyeok (The Servant, 2010)
Production: Daou Tech Inc.
Distribution: Contents Panda (Next Entertainment World)
Filming Dates: 2015-10 ~
Status: Filming
Genre: Thriller

Plot: In the 1940s, a magician’s wife dies and he investigates the circumstances of her passing, which he does not believe to be suicide.

What to expect: One half of the directing duo of the great Colonial Era horror Epitaph returns with another period film, this time a drama-thriller. It’s also based on a mid-50s whodunit novel by Bill Ballinger, and I’m always curious to see how Korean filmmakers tackle foreign texts, and it often helps them with structure, so very curious to see how this turns out.

When can we see it? Not for a while but probably in the fall or winter.
