K-Pop Korner - News Updates from the UK

A Girl at My Door, Starring Doona Bae & Saeron Kim, is a Must Watch

by Adam Riley on 09/29/15

There are many fantastic films coming from the South Korean scene in recent years, and one such hit was last year's Doheeya, starring Doona Bae (Jupiter Ascending, Sense8) and Saeron Kim (The Man from Nowhere), which has only just been picked up for UK release via Peccadillo Pictures.

A sombre tale of a young girl (Kim) abused by her stepfather, and the heroine of the story, a police officer (Bae) recently relocated to the sleepy coastal village, who cares for her like a mother. However, the officer's past comes back to haunt her and things take a turn for the worst very quickly.

Highly rated by critics, Cubed3's Lights, Camera, Action! included, this is one movie that should not be missed.
