Villain and Widow (이층의 악당)

이층의 악당 (I-cheung-eui Ak-dang)

Directed by Son Jae-gon (손재곤)

Screenplay by

Comedy Thriller

115min | Release date in South Korea :

Also known as "Villain on the Second Floor"
Han Seok-kyu, the charismatic South Korean spy in 1999’s “Shiri,” and Kim Hye-soo, the seductress in 2006’s “The War Of Flower,” team up as an odd landlord-tenant couple.

Yeon-joo (Kim) is a single mother who lives in a two-story townhouse with her middle school aged daughter.

To pay the bills, she decides to rent out the second floor of the house.

Her tenant is Chang-in (Han), who claims to be a writer. Although he seems like an ordinary guy, Chang-in seems to have come to the house with a purpose, and sneaks around when he can.

That would seem like cause for eviction for most, but Yeon-joo isn’t like most landlords and is suffering a bout of depression. Meanwhile, her daughter is going through a normal teenage obsession with her looks, so she doesn’t notice his odd behavior either.

But even though neither one of them is actively trying to put a stop to Chang-in’s behavior, their respective problems serve to thwart his plans.

What does Chang-in want from Yun-ju’s house? Who is he? The mystery unfolds with comical scenes between Yun-ju and Chang-in.

  • [HanCinema's Film Review] "Villain and Widow"

    Black comedy is a genre that requires an extremely delicate touch to succeed. It takes great skill to make dark topics funny and it takes even greater skill to make the characters in such stories likable. 'Villain and Widow' has its issues, mainly with its length, but it manages to not only be funny and feature some nice social commentary, but also be a work with characters that are just so easy to enjoy,...More
