Description:

In Seoul, parts not matching of severed copses of three men are found in cars and bags left in public spaces. Detective Cho, who is under investigation of the Internal Affairs, is assigned to lead the investigation with his team. When the identities of the men are discovered, the police finds that the artist Su-Yeon Chae, who lives with her friend Seungmin Oh, had been lover of the men. Detective Cho and his force protect Su-Yeon and follows the leads based one the information she tells, while the killer executes other victims. However, Cho discloses very dark secrets in the end, finding the real motives of the murderer. (Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil & Amazon.com)

A smash success of the action-filled, highly stylized New Asian Cinema, Tell Me Something is a serial killer thriller drenched in atmosphere and punctuated with moments of shocking violence. Korean cinema superstar Han Suk-gyu stars as Lieutenant Cho, a cop on the edge who, while under investigation for graft and mourning the recent death of his mother, is suddenly put in charge of a seemingly impenetrable mystery. Dismembered corpses are being found in garbage bags around Seoul. However, the surgically amputated arms, legs and heads are mismatched, rendering the victims nearly impossibly to identify. When Cho discovers that all the victims were once romantically involved with the same woman, Suyeon Chae (Shim Eun-ha) becomes the focal point of the investigation. Growing more suspicious of Suyeon, even as he becomes more entranced by her icy charm, Cho realizes that the secret to the horrifying murders lies in the carefully guarded memories of her past.
