This startling romantic thriller soaked in lust and revenge is the latest offering from Yim Pil-sung, director of the 2007 horror Hansel and Gretel. Heartthrob Jung Woo-sung (Cold Eyes and The Good, The Bad, The Weird) and emerging star Lee Som set the screen on fire in a cautionary tale of desire and punishment. College professor Hak-kyu (Jung Woo-sung) abandons his young student lover Deokee (Lee Som) after a torrid affair. Eight years later, as he is losing his eyesight, the professor befriends a young neighbor who turns out to be Deokee, who has returned and is hell-bent on revenge.

“Sporting a pair of terrific turns from Jung Woo-sung and Lee Som in a story that stealthily sidles through genres, Scarlet Innocence is a stylish neo film noir with a distinct Korean flavor” – Toronto International Film Festival
