The Phantom Detective
2016. Directed by Jo Sung-hee , starring Lee Je-hoon, Kim Sung-kyun, Go A-ra, Park Keun-hyung , 125 mins.
A Werewolf Boy director Jo Sung-hee returns to the mainstream with Phantom Detective, a stylized update of the classic Hong Gil-dong Korean folk tale. Taking on the role of the famed sleuth is Lee Je-hoon, who brings boatloads of cocky swagger to the part. The private eye tracks down the only man who has ever eluded him only to see him slip between his fingers. He takes on the granddaughters the man leaves behind and continues his search, soon becoming embroiled in a dangerous case with a large corporation. Mixing a retro noir feel with modern effects, Phantom Detective poises itself as Korea’s answer to Sin City.
