"Arang" is loosely based on Arang Tale, a famous folk tale in which the ghost of a minister's daughter solicits a governor to help her settle her
grudge. Ahn Sang Hoon, assistant director of "...ing" and director of the 2004 short "Pass Ove"r, has been busily preparing Arang for the last
few years. His efforts have produced an eerie, interesting film that transcends the typical horror flick by focusing on characters and personal
horrors rather than predictable thrill elements.
"Arang" starts out with the usual duo of detectives. Song Yoon Ah (Hotelier and Lost in Love) is So Young, a seasoned veteran who just returned
from suspension, while rookie Hyun Gi is played by Lee Dong Wook in his film debut. Investigating a serial killer case, the two find clues
leading them to a young girl violently murdered in a rural village ten years earlier. Plagued by external and internal ghosts, the detectives
must unravel the disturbing mystery.
