Memories of Murder

Based on the true story of South Korea’s first serial killer, who roamed the countryside of Hwaseong in the late 80s and early 90s, the film follows two small-town cops (one of whom is played by long-time Bong collaborator Song Kang-ho) charged with tracking down the perpetrator.  They might seem out of their depth at first, but with the help of an esteemed detective who arrives from Seoul, they come closer and closer to solving the case. Bong’s breakout film.
