Extra Info

Soo-hyen, who oversees constructions sites, is stuck between a rock and a hard place, more precisely between less-than-diligent workers and her overtly demanding clients. Which means lots of yelling and swearing in both directions. A pretty tough spot to be sandwiched into so when she gets home all she wants to do is sink into the couch with a glass of wine in hand. Bliss! Until her washing machine decides to break down, which pushes her to the brink of a breakdown herself. Luckily, a friend comes with good advice: just look for a dirt-cheap second-hand one on the web! Two clicks and a swipe later, her old machine is replaced by a new, recycled one… that doesn’t work either. That’s it! She’s posting a bad review! Unfortunately, the seller on the other side of the screen can’t afford bad buzz. You see, his whole ‘quickly gotta sell my belongings because I’m moving abroad’ schtick is just a cover-up for his core business: chopping people up! Preferably young dames like Soo-hyen. But when those dames get crazy ideas like posting bad reviews on his profile, he’s got no other option but to go get some fresh air and pay them a little in-person visit…

As avid eBay users – you wouldn’t believe how much some people are willing to pay for old BIFFF catalogues… – this hit a little too close to home for us. For Soo-hyen as well, who is way more daring in the comfy anonymity of her iPhone then when the hoaxer she’s been insulting shows up in the flesh. A sly critique of our 2.0 society and the excruciating urban loneliness that goes with it, wrapped up in one hell of a blood-crawling nail-biter!
