Night of the undead

Poster Night of the undead

Newly wed bride So-Hee would be perfectly happy in her model couple life if her husband hadn't become so mysterious. She doesn't recognize him. She hires a private detective agency and discovers that her Prince Charming might just turn her life into a nightmare...

Though the summary recalls Sleeping (in Seoul) With the Enemy, and may lead us to expect a terrifying zombie movie, this is a pure sci-fi comedy, a sweet and wacky treat, that for our greatest pleasure mixes the spirit of Body Snatchers with Korean rom-com. It's enchanting to see Lee Jung-hyun change characters so effortlessly, from a heavily armed warrior in Peninsula to a perfect wife dealing with a husband from another world... from one monster to the next!
