What’s Korean Cinema? 54 – Memento Mori

The Whispering Corridors-series had wind in its sails commercially but rather than do a year later in the same all-girls school follow-up, the makers decided to create a thread for the series based on similar setting and supernatural elements but not story.

Running Times: 
00m 00s – Intro/LGBT content and controversy
37m 08s – Box office, awards, notes on the directors
52m 33s – Memento Mori review.
