Most Anticipated Korean Films of 2016

22. RV: Resurrected Victims
Dir: Kwak Kyung-taek (Friend 2001)
Cast: Kim Rae-won (Gangnam Blues), Kim Hae-sook (The Thieves, 2012)
Production: Barunson E& A Corp.
Distribution: Showbox
Filming Dates: 2015-09-30 ~ 2015-12-20
Status: Post-Production
Genre: Mystery, Thriller

Plot: Seven years ago, a man saw his mother die in front of him. She returns as an RV (Resurrected Victims), coming back to avenge her unpunished murderer. For her, that means she’s after her own son.

What to expect: Kwak Kyung-taek makes a quick return with his 13th film. A purveyor of predominantly male-centric thrillers, Kwak rarely makes great (or bad) films but last year’s The Classified File was his most mature work to date, so even a slight improvement would bode very well for RV: Resurrected Victims.

When can we see it? Looking at Showbox’s films for 2016, this makes the most sense in spring or early summer.
