First Trailer for the South Korean Thriller The Scent

Park Hee-soon in The Scent (2012) Movie Image

Last week, we dropped a big ol’ batch of images from director Kim Hyeong-joon-I’s “The Scent” directly into your laps, a potentially thrilling motion picture involving private detectives, attractive women, and lots of intrigue. Which is good, really, because movies about detectives should have a fair amount of intrigue. The flick looks suitably stylish and very glossy, with just a hint of comedy to keep things from getting too serious. I’m definitely curious to see more.

Check out the synopsis if you’re unfamiliar with this one:

Seon-wu is a suspended police detective who works as a private investigator specializing in infidelity detection. He was given a 2-year’s suspension for assaulting his boss and sleeping with his wife, and is now only few days away from completing the disciplinary action. One day, a woman called Su-jin hires him to snoop on her husband. A few days into the investigation, the woman is found murdered. In order to escape the blame for her death which would inevitably jeopardize his reinstatement, he cleans up the bloody crime scene to cover up the murder. In the mean while, Seon-wu’s wife, Hye-yeong, demands divorce on grounds of his affair – so that she can be with Seon-wu’s colleague detective. Having carefully covered up his tracks, he returns to office but evidences that place him at the crime scene start turning up. Seon-wu who is fed up with anything to do with adultery, must battle to clear his name from the accusations of murder and adultery.

Sound goods, right? “The Scent”, which stars Park Hee-soon, Park Si-yeon, Joo Sang-wook, Kim Jeong-tae, Lee Han-wi, and Kwang Soo, opens in South Korea this April. While you’re waiting for your invitation to the premiere, take a look at the trailer embedded below.
