    What an outstanding movie. Not something you see everyday. I don't want to get too deep in it, but I loved how it's starts as a drama, then goes to horror, then romance and so on. It's many movies inside one and built perfectly to fit in the context. The whole story was very well created. I'd like to explain, but I would be giving details and I don't want to ruin it for future watchers.

    But not everything are roses. It is very slow sometimes and the third act is too long. Everything is very well explained in the beginning when you are being introduced to the story, but in the end it gets too slow.

    Although I don't understand a word of korean, I loved the acting. Kang-ho and Ok-bin worked really well together and Ha-kyun came to give that surreal/psychotic asian stereotype.

    Honestly, I don't understand how it wasn't nominated for the Academy Award. It's definitely in my top 5 vampire movies.

    Reminiscent of the swedish "Let the right one come in", but quite a bit more interesting. Partly drama, partly romance, partly horror and partly bizarre comedy this is quite something else! 6 years 11 months ago

    A beautiful movie.
    This one and 'Let The Right One In' are my favourite vampire movies.
