South Korea Gets Diseased in Director Park Jung Woo’s Thriller Deranged

There’s a lesson to be learned from Park Jung Woo’s upcoming South Korean thriller “Deranged”, one which could easily be applied on a global level. If you have a batch of diseased dogs that you need to get rid of ASAP, whatever you do, don’t dump them into nearby rivers and streams. Because those diseases will spread to human beings, and the next thing you know, people will start mindlessly throwing themselves into the very waters that polluted their bodies. And, of course, that’s never a good thing. Ever.

Check out this extensive synopsis:

Jae-hyuk is an ordinary man in his 40s. He works as a medical supplies salesman and is hassled by doctors all day. His brother Jae-pil is a detective that is not all that interested in public safety and spends most of his time moaning about the stock market.

The discovery of a series of floating, gruesomely skeletal bodies around the country sparks hysteria. The police commissioner is disturbed to see CCTV footage of people jumping into water as if they were possessed, and drowning themselves. Time passes and hundreds of similar cases are reported, leaving officials stumped as to the cause of the deaths. The government declares a national emergency.

Jae-pil joins the massive investigation and meets the mayor of a small town who claims he witnessed several men in work uniforms dumping infected dogs into the streams and realizes that there is a conspiracy behind the outbreak. Meanwhile, Jae-hyuk’s wife and children are showing the same symptoms as the victims, leading to a frantic search for medicine. Through Jae-pil he learns of a warehouse containing a potential cure in thousands and thousands of doses and heads there with no idea of what he’s heading into.

“Deranged” stars Kim Myung min, Kim Dong Wan, Moong Jung-Hee, and Lee Ha-Nui. Look for this cinematic virus to spread across South Korean theaters this July. The first batch of photos from the flick have been embedded below.
