Reel Laughs: Korean Ghost Prank Goes Awry

1 Comment

My nephew actually showed me this. He thought it was funny, though he calls it the “Grudge” prank, ala the “Grudge” movies by Takashi Shimizu. It’s actually not based on the Grudge as far as I can tell, since anyone familiar with Asian horror movies will know that chicks with long hair standing around in quiet buildings is a major staple of the genre. The YouTube page hosting the video says this is a Korean prank, though I couldn’t tell you if it was Korean or Japanese, so let’s go with Korean.

You gotta love the last guy’s reaction once he realized he’s been pranked. Is it real? I think so. I think you can tell by the hesistant — re: girly — way he fights back that it’s probably real.

    I keep seeing people post this and I dunno where it’s from. The Chinese characters and website shown during the video are Chinese. The first woman who walks in gasps like a Korean woman. The logo at the end is Korean and when I look it up it brings me to a video website. Some of the descriptions there do describe the video as Korean so it might actually be Korean…
