Plot

A man is murdered shortly after his release from prison. Detective Han Dong-Su (Han Suk-Kyu) investigates the case, which leads him back to a homicide case that occurred 14 years ago. An unsolved case that eats the soul of Detective Han Dong-Su to this day.

Meanwhile, Mi-Ho (Son Ye-Jin) is set to marry the chief executive of a large corporation. An assistant (Lee Min-Jung) to the executive chief is asked to do a background check on Mi-Ho. She discovers that Mi-Ho's mother was the primary suspect in an unsolved murder case 14 years ago. The assistant also notices another man, Yo-Han (Ko Soo), who always seems to linger by Mi-Ho's side.

Detective Han Dong-Su is convinced that Yo-Han, the victim's son from the 14 year old murder case, is somehow involved in the recent murder. Detective Han Dong-Su then discovers a hidden relationship between Yo-Han and Mi-Ho. As more crimes occur, Detective Detective Han Dong-Su works frantically to uncover the truth ...

Ubertini In my opinion, Go Soo and Son Ye Jin makes the perfect couple, i would like to watch them in a drama or in a romantic movie. White Night, is very sad story....very intensive....

Eskimo Oh. My. Goddess. This film completely blew me off. I always thought that no other films can come close to Oldboy's sickening twist, but White Night is twisted in a whole different way, but truly beautiful nonetheless. The performance of the all cast were applaudable. Son Ye Jin suits perfectly the role of a beautiful Angel of Death, and so as Go Soo as the warm-hearted Grim Reaper. The story is tragic and emotionally-driven. The cinematography was also well-done. I especially love the last part; how the young Jia is leaving with the now Mi-Ho. Visually stunning, mind-boggling twist, top-notch performance, and terrific sound design. This film is undoubtedly a 10/10; but mind all the intensity sex-scenes and nudity. ;)

Hwa Damn this movie is amazing!!! all the actors portrayed amazingly their character! I whis more people knew about this movie The ending was so tragic but still we all knew it would end like that /; If I had to rate this movie I would give it a 10 out 10 ^^

kht This movie is emotionally intense! Such a tragic ending..very sad story...
