Genre

Crime action

Synopsis

 The story took a step back 17 years ago when an infamous serial killer took the life of 10 women.  While the police had no clue to pin the killer down, a young, good-looking guy – Lee Du-seok stood up by publishing a book “Confession of Killer” and claimed that he was the murderer.

 With explicit support of the social media and expiration of the 15-year statute of limitations, Lee Du-seok became a celebrity overnight and portrays himself in the upfront.  The publicity leads to confrontations between the killer, Police Lieutenant Choi Hyeong-gu and the victims’ families.

 That is how the race of confrontations and eye-popping action sequences begin….

CONFESSION OF MURDER-11

Casts

Jeong Jae-yeon, 郑在咏 acted as a slobby detective (Choi Hyeong-gu) is a perfect task for him.  A versatile actor like him portrays a tough guy and a dutiful son to his widowed mother.  Combination of justice and humanity in this show is within his palm.

CONFESSION OF MURDER-6

I love the eyes and the scheming smile of Park Shi-hu, 朴施厚.  His good looks and taut build never fail to ogle the audience’s sight.  His mysterious intention and appearance as a writer, Lee Du-seok exude his charm in this show and make viewers hooked on to discover more of this thriller.

CONFESSION OF MURDER-10

Some scenes revealed

Du-seok attracts thousands of fans after his name was exposed.  There is this scene in a temporary police lock-up while one of his fans got hold of his hands and is unwilling to let it go which later ended up in a hilarious chaos.

CONFESSION OF MURDER-8

“Call the press, let’s put on a show too!”  What a sidesplitting dialogue over the rescue stun scene!

CONFESSION OF MURDER-7

“Should I show you who I really am?”  The killer throws a question to lieutenant Choi after slitting his cheek.

CONFESSION OF MURDER-5

Reviews

The rescue sequence seems dramatic but I don’t want to miss a single scene of it.  While one victim’s family tries to capture Lee Du-seok, the chasing and rescue action flick between cars and ambulance is both serious and totally comedic.  I believe this has to do with the style of Korean movie, not only a moviemaker but also a fun maker!

Sharp edges of the actors are flowing throughout the whole show.  Conflicts, debate, emotion, forgiveness, justice are the elements to make up this exciting race.  The cleverly twisted ending makes your dollar worth without further commentaries but sit back with a smile.
