The London Korean Film Festival 2013: Code Name Jackal


Date: Friday 8th November 20:45
Venue: London Odeon Panton St

Clumsy and off-the-wall hit man Bong Min-jung (Song Ji-hyo) is hired to kill top Hallyu star Choi Hyun (Kim Jaejoong). She ambushes him at Paradise Hotel in Seong-ju where the cops are on a stakeout for serial killer “Jackal”. Later on, Hyun finds out that the person who hired Minjung to kill him is his ex-girlfriend. Hyun tries to convince Minjung that he isn’t the ‘top Hallyu star Choi Hyun’ she is looking for so that she would let him escape, one by purposely singing out of tune. Conversations and several attempts to escape happens, then a fan of Hyun (which is the same one who sneaked into his car at the beginning of the story which caused him to switch cars with his manager) follows him to the hotel and goes inside his room through the window. The girl untied the ropes and takes him to her own suite, but hope vanishes as the girl starts to torture him. However, Minjung saved him by using a stun gun against the sasaeng fan which the girl was supposed to use for the torturing. Then Angela arrives and meets Hyun, her boy toy, but is stabbed to death by Min-jung.
