Da-Eun (Son Ye-Jin) has completed graduate school and is set to become a newspaper reporter. She lives with her father Son-Man (Kim Kap-Soo) who lovingly refers to her as "my heart". Although her father does menial work, Da-Eun is proud of him.

One day, Da-Eun goes to the movie with her boyfriend Jae-Kyoung (Lee Gyu-Han) and friend Bo-Ra (Jo An). They watch a movie that is based on a real life unsolved crime. A man kidnaps a boy and demanded ransom from the parents. The child is later found dead and the killer is never heard from again. The only clue the police have to the killer's identity is the ransom phone call he made to the parents. At the end of the film, they play the actual recorded audio from that phone call. When Da-Eun hears the voice she becomes frozen. The man's voice sounds eerily like her father and he also uses the phrase "It Ain't Over 'til It's Over" which her father always favored.

When Da-Eun gets back home, she looks up the crime that took place nearly 15 years ago on the internet. She finds a recording of the killer's voice and listens to it again. Da-Eun becomes awash with horror and also guilt for even suspecting her father as the killer. There's also only a few days remaining before the unsolved crime runs into its statute of limitations. What will Da-Eun do? Meanwhile, a man (Lim Hyung-Joon) from her father's past suddenly appears.

Lu Nice set up of the story

SR So who was the real killer at the end?


Was it the father or brother in law? Since bother helped.

Sely Tha Many people said that it has bad plot, so it means that u didnt understand about the story line ... but I think the director is brilliant... till the end it still makes me confused but the additional scene suddenly make it clear... the fact that soon man very loves daeun, though daeun is not his real daughter that he kidnapped her since she was baby, and his bro inlaw treated him, so in order soo man didnt loose her daugther he kidnapped in soo's son and asked for money but unfortunately soon man killed in soo's son... one thing what we should learn from this movie is that a father always love his child and always wants to protect her, but every parent has their own way how to protect their children, right?

Father it isn't over til it's over..

Vi I love SYJ a lot but the plot really disappointed me. I agree the production has poor value.

Eskimo The acting in this movie is brilliant, but yeah the ending is really disappointing. All the build-up and tension in the first two acts of the movie only to have all the problems resolved by a car crush? I was looking forward to see the truly evil Son-man, which only emerged for a short while after the clock strikes twelve, marking the end of the statute of limitation. For some reason I felt that this movie has a very low production value, despite having so many talented and well-known cast. I could tell that half of their production funds was probably spent on the last car crush scene..

maya disappointing movie, i was looking for a thriller, and it was more like a psychological drama.. ye jin and the other cast were great but it was predictable and the lead was very selfish and stupid..

hanana the cast... wow. will watch mostly for lee gyu han though. i think he is great as a character actor.

hanhan yeeyyy, my favorite actress and my ahjussi crush in one movie!!!!! OMG, Son Ye-jin and Kim Gab-soo???? arrrrggghhhhhh!!!!! can't waiiiiiittt!!!!!

  • fargirl mode on!!!!

finally Son Ye-jin and Kim Gab-soo in daughter-papa pairing again after 2006 most beautiful drama Alone in Love!!!!! and SYJ's hair her is similar with her hairstyle in Alone in Love.

and both of them are one of best actor/actress in Korea!!! SYJ is a total package!! excellent in in acting-wise, already talented since her debut, have one of Korean best visual, and also really famous not because of her beauty only but also her brilliant and natural acting

dore Waiting for October :) hoping it has a many viewers in Korea :D please release another trailer soon.. Hwaiting Son Ye-jin, Kim Kap-soo, and all the cast :)~ october please coming faster :DD!!

gemini Looking forward to this movie. Finally, it has a release date and a poster.

wildflower When can I watch this movie? I had been waiting for too long. Currently watching shark right now while waiting for accomplice. Very intense and dark drama. I love your acting! You are the best! Hope to see you in romantic comedy drama/movie (best if with kim nam gil :)) You have beautiful smile.

Erdith Pegasus Currently I believe that the beautiful and Cute Son Ye Jin is one of the best actress in Korean! Look how many awards di she have in her age (more than 30 awards) … Isn't it one of new record for Korean Actress?

Son Ye Jin acting performance is always good and constantly look much better and better… I like her both as an actress or in the real live. Nice person, friendly, peace lover and far from any gossip. I saw all af her movie : Secret Tears, Chihwaseon, Delicious Proposal, Sun-hee & Jin-hee, Dae Mang The Great Hope, Lovers Concerto, The Classic, Crazy First Love, Summer Scent, Alone in Love, Spotlight, A Moment to Remember, April Snow, The Art of Seduction, Yobi the Five Tailed Fox (voice), Spotlight, Open City, and My Wife Got Married, Personal Taste, White Night, Spellbound, The Tower. I praise her performance is always above the average.

She changed her style from innocent girl/women to adult women since his performance in Art of seduction (one of her funniest movie beside Crazy First love).

Honestly i prefer The classic and Moment to remember then his adult and sexy performance in April Snow and Art of seduction but i realize that she want to be a versatile actress. I will always wait for her next movie. My Next movie target will be “Accomplice" and "Shark"!!

Son Ye Jin.. Sarangheo.. :)

luvi i hope the filming is already started. son ye-jin is so beautiful
