Thriller horrorKorean drama "Hometown0304" movie review Explanation material Afterthoughts
September 30, 1987
The editorial office of the school magazine received many emails
One of them contained a videotape.
The contents of the tape were particularly creepy
It affected five people in different ways
Today we continue with the third episode of "Hometown
The time comes to 1999
Kyung-jin, who had been missing for days, was killed.
Jae-young's whereabouts are still unknown
The news reveals her life
The daughter of Cho Kyung-ho who used poison gas to kill over 200 people in 1987
Jung was a member of the editorial board back then
He set himself on fire in front of his home not long ago
Zhao and his old classmate were also members of the editorial board
Now the identity of one man and one woman is still missing
Zheng's cousin found the two
Take the two to Zheng's residence
Let them help pick some photos to use at the memorial service
They discovered by accident
Zheng still has the old photos from that year
And the weird video tape
On the other hand, Principal Li was ready to run away
He received a call from the church
The words reveal his respect for the Grand Master
He carried a lot of candy with him
He would put one in his mouth when he had nothing to do
When he went to the bathroom
A man with glasses approached him
He said he wanted to give a gift before he left
And this gift is death
After taking care of Principal Li
The two accompanying people made a strange gesture
Xiao Zhao came home and found her mother praying
When her mother saw her return, she fell back to sleep.
She gently closed the door and did not disturb again
Then she found a video recorder
To watch the weird video tape
It started with a loud noise
followed by a red circle
She didn't wait to see further.
The glass was smashed
Before they could react
Rocks were pelting in one after another
This is the courtesy of the people from the hometown to the terrorist family
Zhao Jinghao in an interview
said that his childhood was very ordinary
His mother raised him and his sister alone
He later went to Japan to see his daughter
That is, Jae-young
But about the identity of Jae-young's mother
He didn't explain much, but said she wasn't Japanese.
Then why was Jae-young in Japan?
The police found out about the murder of Principal Lee.
His wife and kids are in Tokyo.
I guess he's going too
There was a lot of candy at the scene
Choi saw this at Kyung-jin's house
Kyung-jin and Principal Lee both had this candy, and both were killed.
That means there is something wrong with the candy and sent to check
It's ST candy from Japan
The most popular imported goods in the 90s
With a strong psychedelic effect
At that time, the only one who could get a lot of goods was Skull Pie
So the deaths of Kyung-jin and Principal Lee must be related to the Skull and Bones.
Maybe the missing Jae-young is also in the hands of Skull and Bones.
At the same time, there was another person who saw the video.
Yongjo is currently in the loan shark business
Old classmates approached him and took him to see Zhao
He's the one who held hands with Jo back then
The two were originally lovers
But Zhao suddenly left without saying goodbye
He was depressed and didn't know what he had done wrong
They watched a video together
After the circle, a woman appears
The woman crosses her arms to cover her face
The background sound is also very strange
Like something whispering
They had seen this video in '87
But Yongzhuo doesn't remember anything like this
Xiao Zhao also has no memory of it
On the other hand, Jae-young's classmates were hiding something.
The tape they received was in her possession.
But she didn't hide it on purpose
She had something to hide.
Jae-young came to see her the day before she disappeared.
She told her to keep the tape safe and not to tell anyone.
She wanted to keep her promise.
But Jae-young had been missing for several days.
She couldn't keep it a secret.
If the tape was the key to finding Jae-young.
She couldn't hide it any longer.
Meanwhile, Cui came to see Jo to find out what happened.
After all, Jae-young was Jo's niece.
As they talked, they got into the story of her life.
It turns out that Jo and her brother grew up in an orphanage.
She was later adopted by her current mother
Her father died in 1985
This is different from Zhao Jinghao's story
If both of them are not lying
Then Zhao Jinghao should be talking about his own mother
Soon after, Cui and his partner, Li Shi-Zheng, went on a mission.
They raided the Skull and Bones gang's hideout.
The Skeletons are in the drug business and are all desperate men.
The trip was very dangerous and Lee was very nervous.
Lee's wife's identity is also not simple
She was the last person to see the video back then
About the video except for the dead student Zheng
No one else remembered
But Lee's wife was impressed
She still remembered clearly the contents of the tape
Strange bells, the devil's whisper
The woman with her arms blocking her face, she remembered all these
She got sick after watching the tape that year.
She didn't go to school for a week.
And Jo didn't remember anything about it.
During the week she was sick, she had strange dreams every day.
In a room that was upside down
There was a strange woman
The woman in the video was holding her face with her arms.
Cho even came to see her.
She said that Yongzhuo also had strange dreams.
But Jo didn't remember anything about it.
A few days later, there was a terrorist attack.
Jo left her hometown as a result.
The school magazine section was disbanded, and everyone became strangers.
It was as if they never knew each other.
There is one incident in Lao Cui's memory
A girl who had just entered middle school poured pesticide into rice wine
She killed her father.
And she used a camera to record the process of her father's death
Lao Cui asked her why she did it and she said she was afraid of forgetting
afraid to forget how much she hated her father
Afraid that she would choose to forgive her father after a long time
Is the father too animalistic?
Or is the daughter too crazy?
Back in time to 1999
Lao Cui and Li Shizheng are on a mission with a commando team
The target is the Skull and Bones gang's lair.
The firepower of the Skull and Bones faction is quite heavy
The assault team was killed and wounded.
There's that strange symbol here.
There are some tools used for drug production.
There are some locked-up people.
And a strange man.
The man was holding a gun in his right hand and pointing in one direction with his left hand
Asked Lao Cui if he could see the girl over there
Of course he couldn't.
The man said something strange again
So that's what Guru was talking about
Then he raised the gun and killed himself
The man had the key on him
Lao Cui told Li Shizheng to save the people who were imprisoned
He continued to feel his way forward
He found a dead woman
And a tape being played.
Choi turned off the tape player and Lee was unlocking it.
The people inside were standing in a line.
As if they were waiting for help.
The moment the lock was opened.
There was a shocking explosion and Lee took the brunt of it.
At the same time, after a discussion among his classmates
They decided to give the tapes to Choi.
Choi was not at the police station.
He had to ask someone else to pass it to Choi.
Choi went to the hospital to see Lee Si-jeong
Lee recovered his life and lost his leg
It was a blessing among misfortunes
This incident had a great impact on Choi.
He decided to withdraw from Jae Young's case.
Both Jae-young and Jo
are the family of Cho Kyung-ho
And his wife died in the gas incident.
He wasn't a saint.
Although he knew that this case had nothing to do with Jae-young and Jo
But he couldn't stop hating
When he thought of looking for Cho's daughter
There is an indescribable feeling in his heart
So it was the best choice for him to quit.
There will be a better person to take over Jae-young's case.
This is good for everyone
Zhao didn't know what to say.
He could only keep apologizing.
On the other hand, Jae-young's classmates made a big discovery.
Jae-young had logged into the chat app.
Her classmates asked her where she was
She replied that there was a record in the '87 school magazine
The time came on September 8, 1999.
There was a major breakthrough in the case of Jae-young's disappearance.
The Golden Hair who took her away turned himself in.
But the strange thing is that Golden Hair only talks to Lao Cui.
But he didn't recognize Cui when he stood in front of him.
Until Lao Cui identified himself.
He only said he looked like the man in the photo
It seems that he was instructed by someone
Someone showed him the photo and told him to come to Lao Cui.
He said something very strange.
Guru said that Lao Cui would not let him go.
He would cut off the skin of his body with a knife.
He would pour boiling water all over his body.
If he screamed for help.
Lao Cui would spit on him.
He's not normal in this state.
I don't know if he was drugged or brainwashed.
According to his confession, he kidnapped Jae-young on July 15.
The next day, he strangled Jae-young and loaded his body into a car.
He threw her into the ocean.
This story is 80% false.
Let's not talk about his mental state.
Jae-young had contacted his classmates not long ago.
How could he die the day after he disappeared?
And what was his reason for killing Jae-young?
Where was the crime scene and what were the tools used?
None of this was explained.
But when the words came out, some people took them seriously.
Jae-young's family was planning to hold a funeral.
Jae-young's classmates then told Jo.
About a month ago, Jae-young contacted them.
She also mentioned the '87 school magazine.
Zhao was almost angry
It was so important that she only told her now
She thought about it carefully
The funeral was a bit rushed.
Jae-young's body was never found.
Before she left her last words.
If she didn't leave here, Jae-young would be in danger.
It seems she knew something would happen to Jae Young.
Plus, there's that weird symbol at Kimmo's house.
Jae-young had contacted her classmate a month ago.
No matter how you look at it, it's not a simple matter.
She must find out everything about this matter.
If she can't, she'll go see Zhao Jinghao.
She found something strange right after she started her investigation.
Zheng's house she visited before was a fake
The people who live here say they have lived here for more than 10 years
Never heard of anyone named Zheng living here
She went in and took a look.
It was the same place, but things were different
She talked to the landlord on the phone.
The landlord thought she was the person who came to rent the place last time
She called Zheng's cousin.
It was an empty number.
She wanted to tell Cui about it.
But he didn't answer her call
She left a message for him.
A classmate in England handed in a tape
She wanted to listen to the contents.
But Cui had already withdrawn from the case and didn't want to get involved.
But he still couldn't let go of it completely.
He asked his colleague about the tape and left it with Li Shizheng.
The helpless Zhao chose the last way
To see his brother Zhao Jinghao
This is also Zhao Jinghao since he was imprisoned
The first time they met.
Before his disappearance, he had been in contact with Zhao Jinghao.
Zhao had reason to suspect
Jae Young's disappearance was related to Jo Kyung Ho
But Jo's answer was unexpected.
He didn't contact Jae-young first.
Instead, he was contacted by Jae Young first.
Jo also said something very strange.
Jo thought he knew Jae-young well.
But that wasn't the case.
Jo suddenly got emotional
Jo Kyung-ho clapped his hands and raised his index finger
Jo immediately went quiet
Her first thought was that she was hypnotized by Cho Kyung Ho
If Zhao Jinghao really has such ability
Then the golden hair is probably also hypnotized
After all, there is no reason for Golden Hair to kidnap Jae-young
In that case
Then Zhao Jinghao was responsible for Xiaozhao's disappearing memories
Zhao Jinghao reminded Xiaozhao
She is the key person in the whole incident
And the real reason she came here
Is to ask about the weird symbol
She couldn't open her mouth because she was afraid from the bottom of her heart
When she came out of the orphanage
Zhao Jinghao had buried something in her mind
And the whole thing started with them and Jae-young.
On the other hand, Lao Cui did not rush to get the tape
Instead, he went to a restaurant to drink his sorrows away
Lee Si-jeong listened to the tape at home.
There were bells and whistles on the tape.
But Lee's hearing was damaged by the explosion.
He could only hear the bells but not the whistles
His wife could hear everything
At night, his wife had a nightmare.
An upside-down room.
And the woman with her arms crossed over her face.
She woke up from her sleep.
She went to have a drink of water to calm down
The sound of water running in the bathroom
The scene was familiar, similar to what happened to Kyung-jin.
She pretended to be brave and pulled open the shower curtain.
Nothing was there. She turned off the faucet.
She was about to go back to sleep.
The woman from the dream appeared
She trembled with fear.
This is a completely unprecedented situation
The woman lowered her hands and slowly approached
She was so scared that she screamed out loud
At dawn, Cui received a call
Immediately rushed to the scene Li Shijing home accident
There was one hanging in the bedroom and one lying in the living room
Lao Cui sat on the sofa and cried bitterly
If he hadn't been drinking yesterday
If he had taken the tape yesterday
Li Shizheng would not have died
Unfortunately, there is no if...
This is the end of the 3rd and 4th episodes of "Hometown".
The story is coming to a head here.
It's about a cult and hypnosis.
The timeline of the story is very confusing
The narrative is also very unusual
To put it nicely, it's to set the stage
To put it bluntly, it's a fiction
You can say it is slow paced
Put aside the more than 200 people poisoned by Zhao Jinghao
4 episodes of the death of 5 people
Kyung-jin mother and daughter Lee principal Lee Shi-jeong couple
Also missing a Jae-young
You say it is fast-paced it 4 episodes have passed
The audience is still confused do not know what is being said
So far it seems to have nothing to do with the cult
Lee and his wife were killed
It looks like the wife was hypnotized and hallucinated
She thought her husband (Lee Se-jung) was a woman with her arms crossed.
In the panic, she killed her husband and then hanged herself.
The whole process is similar to Kyung-jin's case
It is likely that Kyung-jin also killed his mother and then committed suicide
But there is a difference between the two
Lee's wife lost her mind because of the tape
Kyung-jin lost his mind because of the candy
And both the tape and the candy are related to the cult
That means the final goal is still the cult
As for Jo Kyung-ho, is he fighting the cult?
Or a member of the cult
It is still hard to say
According to the clues given so far
Against the cult is more likely
Well, that's all I have to say
