I went to the Summer Night in Korea event tonight at the Ford Theater in Hollywood and saw the movie "Bestseller" (2010) - 베스트셀러 (Be-seu-teu-sel-leo) by Lee Jeong-ho.
I was a bit disappointed because it wasn't too scary. There was one surprise plot though everything else was too predictable. The actress Uhm Jung-hwa's performance wasn't too convincing either.
And I think I caught a cold during the outdoor screening tonight too... Oh well...
Synopsis: Hee-soo has been a bestselling author for the past 20 years. But her reputation and fame are all butchered overnight when she is accused of plagiarizing a competition entry that she juried. She falls into despair for 2 years, but with the help of her long-time friend publisher, she dreams of a spectacular comeback. She drives to a remote pension deep in a small town with her daughter Yun-hee. At this quiet and uncanny pension, Yun-hee begins talking to an unidentified figure. Dying for a new source of inspiration, Hee-soo turns the stories that Yun-hee hears from this figure into her new book, which turns into a bestseller. But her regained fame doesn’t last long as she is again accused of plagiarizing a novel that was published 10 years ago. In order to prove her innocence, Hee-soo begins a mysterious journey to expose the truth. (Koreanfilm.or.kr)
