Thriller movie Blind’s trailer and stills
Let’s take a look at the new movie Blind, which stars Kim Haneul (Road No. 1) and Yoo Seung-ho (Warrior Baek Dong-soo) as two people involved in a murder case who become entangled in the chase to capture the criminal. The movie seems like standard thriller fare, but I’m a fan of both actors, so I’ve been looking forward to this release since hearing about the casting. In true Korean-melodrama fashion, one is blind, and the other has super-duper-eyesight. No, I kid. It’s almost that dramatic, though: Kim Haneul is blind AND a crucial “eyewitness” (har har, but also true) to a murder case. The case at hand is connected to a series of female students who go missing, and a hit and run. Once the police connect that one victim was involved in both incidents, they go in search of witnesses: Blind Su-ah (Kim) was a former trainee at police academy and is the first witness, who provides a minute description of the incident based on details she picks up with her keen other senses.
But the investigation takes a turn with the arrival of witness No. 2, Ki-sub (Yoo), who appears well into the investigation and describes a very different scene. With his brash attitude, he counters that he’s the one who saw it with his own two eyes. Su-ah challenges, “You’re doubting me because I can’t see, but why don’t you doubt him?” And then…Su-ah finds herself being stalked and threatened. Based on the trailer below, it appears Ki-sub comes to her aid, despite their conflicting accounts at the police station. In one pretty cool sequence, he sees from a distance that she’s being chased and yells directions to her via phone, allowing her to escape from her chaser. Or does she? The main poster above reads: “One case! Two witnesses! Conflicting testimonies!” Blind opens on August 11.
