For a taste of a mystery film from South Korea, watch Hide and Seek online. Hide and Seek revolves around Sung-soo who is a wealthy businessman. His wife and children are consequently living the good life. Life couldnâ€™t be better for Sung-soo. He has ensured that his family enjoy maximum security and that no harm can come to them. They thus live in a luxurious apartment protected by round-the-clock video surveillance and almost every hi-tech security gadget you can think of.
But Sung-soo is estranged from his brother. The brother had a skin disorder which possibly embarrassed Sung-soo and, coupled with the fact that he wanted the family fortune all to himself, Sung-soo conspired to have his brother sent away after making up a story about him over something sexually improper.
But the peace and calm in Sung-sooâ€™s life is soon shattered when he gets a call claiming that his estranged brother has gone missing. Sung-soo immediately sets out for the apartment where his brother resides in. After decades of estrangement this is the first time that he is seeking out his brother.
At his brotherâ€™s apartment he comes across weird symbols that have been carved onto all doors. He also comes face to face with Joo-hee and a young girl. Joo-hee reveals to Sung-soo that sheâ€™s fearful for her life and that thereâ€™s somebody who has been spying on the family.
After studying the weird symbols, Sung-soo comes to the conclusion they are probably some secret codes that represent people and their gender. Things get scarier when Sung-soo returns to his own residence only to find his own door bearing the same symbols.
