One of the first homegrown blockbuster hits produced by the modern Korean film industry, the feature debut of director Kang Je-gyu (Shiri) is a delirious vision of inter-romance between spirit and mortal in which an art instructor (Han Suk-kyu) finds himself at the center of a haunted love triangle involving an ancient princess and a murderous general after he comes into possession of a bed made from a cursed gingko tree. The crudely expressionistic CGI effects only add to the otherworldly aura of this surreal and strangely poignant tale of obsessive love from beyond the grave.
