    Has anyone seen this movie yet? It's a supernatural movie directed by Won Sin Yeon, and would seem to be about an evil wig and its horrors wrought upon two sisters. I saw the trailer on the official site and I'm quite intrigued, even if I didn't understand a single word. :D

    I've heard good things. Will eventually check it out on DVD I think. Maybe.

    Oh gosh, I was looking at this one the other day. The premise of a "haunted wig" just sounds so silly to me that I really wasn't ready to give this film a chance, but we'll see I suppose.

    They had some good looking screen shots up at DVD Asian , I'd love to hear some opinions as well.

    Never heard of it before but I think it sounds pretty cool. I like the cover art too. I'll have to see if I can buy it in the near future.

    Probably not too unlike the Black Hair segment in Kwaidan.
    Isn't that something in their culture about long black hair and stuff?
    I might have made that up.

    Dude, come on.

    One's a korean film:WIG.

    The other is a Japanese film:KWADIAN.

    Two totally different cultures and history.
