[footsteps approaching]
Are you all right?
[Sanyeong grunts]
[Hongsae] Is this the only place
you could think of coming to?
It's freezing.
[exhales shakily]
What is this?
Is this jacket mine?
It's not mine, is it?
Did you turn yourself in earlier?
What did I say?
[Sanyeong] I
all of those people.
I said that?
That was
I mean
I didn't mean that.
That's what I think too.
You're the type to cuss out the scammer
even if you lose all your money
to voice phishing.
You don't seem to be
the type to murder someone over it.
But you see
If you really did such a thing,
come to me.
- Sorry?
- [Hongsae] We're not strangers.
I'll write up a nice report,
so just come to me.
What if I told you
that it was a ghost who did it?
Would you believe me?
I know you won't believe me.
But it's true.
[Sanyeong exhales sharply]
I should go.
Thank you for bringing me this jacket.
[unsettling music]

[Sanyeong gasps]
What is this?
[line ringing]
Professor Jang,
sorry for calling so late at night.
I found a Line of Prohibition
with a small blade inside.
[Professor Jang over phone]
By a small blade,
do you mean a Line of Prohibition
from the South Gyeongsang region?
They're incredibly rare.
How did you come across one?
I can't explain everything over the phone.
But I'm looking
for the person who made it.
Someone who'd make a Line of Prohibition
They must be involved in shamanism.
Perhaps a shaman or one
that specializes in reciting scriptures.
I'll look into it and call you back.
Thank you.
[phone beeps]
[tense music]
[security guard]
Young Master Yeom is here.
[gate buzzes, clanks]
[pensive music]
YEAR 1995
[ball thumping]
I didn't know you were coming.
Is Grandmother still awake?
She's in the study.
Are you here to see her?
- Yes.
- How are you doing?
How do you find your house?
Should I look for a bigger place?
I can manage on my own.
There's no need to be concerned.
How can I not be
when you're the sole heir?
She worries a lot about you too.
She worries
about me?
She may still look healthy on the outside,
but she has aged.
Why don't you just come back
to the company?
You know this already.
I'm not interested in our family business.
[door closes]
[pensive music]
[Haesang's Grandma] Just get to the point.
Don't just glance at me
like a sick dog would.
[unsettling music]
My mom was burying strange objects
before she passed away.
[tense music]
Is this about
the red hair accessory again?
I already told you.
They didn't find such things
where she died.
Why did she take me to that place?
Why did my mom pass away?
Why are you asking me?
You were the one who was with her.
I've been seeing weird things ever since.
I could only see them
in the mirror at first.
But now I can see them without it.
I'm terrified.
Shut up.
Do you want to be admitted
to a psychiatric hospital?
Don't you dare utter such things
ever again.
- [knocks on door]
- [Haesang's Grandma] Come in.
Young Master Yeom is here.
Have you been well?
I'm sure you didn't crawl back here
just to ask me that.
Tell me. Why are you here?
[Haesang] It's something my mother had.
I was too young back then
to remember exactly where she buried it.
[Haesang] But she buried
this piece of pottery before she died.
And this.
She had this hair accessory with her
until the moment she died.
Are you sure you don't know
anything about them?
Get out.
[suspenseful music]
I said get out of my house this instant.
The guest is leaving!
Don't just stand there.
Take him out of here.
[music intensifies, fades]
[assistant] What did you say to her
to make her so enraged?
Why does she become so upset
whenever I bring up my mother?
This won't do.
I need to ask her again.
It's best
that you just leave today.
You know her temper.
Are you coming
on Ujin's death anniversary?
You can meet her then and ask.
It's chilly. You should go inside.
[pensive music]
[music intensifies]
[music fades]
- [door slides]
- Goodness, when did you come home?
Look at you.
- [Gyeongmun] Is that makeup? This hair
- What is this?
Where did you get these clothes?
What is this?
I leased a small clothing store
near the subway station.
What? Where did you get the money?
I took your grandmother's inheritance.
I also didn't want to accept
anything from her family.
But it'd be weird not to take it
when she offered.
Plus, your dad never paid child support
the entire time I raised you.
We're entitled to this money.
298,230,100 WON
Sanyeong? What brings you here?
[tense music]
[Gyeongmun] Look.
Her house
and the money in this bank account
amount to 1.3 billion won.
We don't need to suffer anymore
with this amount of money.
Like you said, we can--
Can you please stop?
[breathing heavily]
[music fades]
[Sanyeong breathing heavily]
[ghostly voice]
Do you want me to kill her?
[ominous music]
[breathes shakily]
Gosh, hey--
[Gyeongmun] Sanyeong. Hey.
Sanyeong, is this something
to be that upset about?
- What's wrong?
- [knocking on door]
- [banging on door]
- I did this for us.
- Sanyeong.
- [doorknob rattles]
- Gu Sanyeong.
- [tape screeching]
Sanyeong, open the door. Let's talk.
What are you doing?
I did this so you wouldn't suffer.
That's why I accepted it.
[knocking on door]
Sanyeong, let's talk.
[Sanyeong panting, whimpering]
[Gyeongmun] Sanyeong.
[Sanyeong sobs]
- [knocking on door]
- [Gyeongmun] Sanyeong.
- [knocking continues]
- Gu Sanyeong.
- [Sanyeong sobbing]
- [doorknob rattles]

[Gyeongmun snores]
[Sanyeong breathes deeply]
[breathes deeply]
[soft scoff]
[Gyeongmun exhales softly]
[Gyeongmun groans]
[exhales deeply]
[pensive music]
[Haesang] It was my mother who had
these objects in her possession first.
She buried them somewhere
before she passed away
at the bed and breakfast in 1995.
She wanted to get rid of the evil spirit.
That was it.
This was how she could get rid of it.
The pear seed hair accessory
and the pottery piece
had something to do with a young girl.
They probably belonged to Lee Mokdan
who became a juvenile ghost.
I need to seal them
with a Line of Prohibition in a place
where the evil spirit killed someone.
[associate] That's just your assumption.
And didn't you say Professor Gu Gangmo
was possessed?
Do you seriously believe what he wrote?
He was the one
who knew the most about evil spirits.
[suspenseful music]
[associate] I'm more curious
about his will and letter.
Why did the evil spirit
drag you into this?
Getting rid of the evil spirit
is more important than that.
[associate] Haesang, you should stop here.
Or you could also meet your mother's fate.
[Haesang] No.
[exhales deeply]
I have finally uncovered a lead.
I can't stop now.
[doorbell rings]
- [lock beeps]
- [door buzzes]
Professor Yeom.
[Haesang] Is this mine?
I'm so sorry.
When did you take it?
You spent this much money?
[paper rustling]
This is the five million you lent me
and the money I spent yesterday.
I added the interest too.
Where did you get this money?
What happened yesterday?
Nothing. Nothing happened.
[pensive music]
She's definitely hiding something.
[associate] Where are you going?
I need to know
what happened to her yesterday.
But you don't even know where she was.
[Haesang] I'll trace her steps
with the credit card details.
Did you see my dad yesterday
when you visited the house?
How is he?
If you're so worried,
you should visit him yourself.
I told you I didn't want to go there.
[birds chirping]
[assistant] Did you call for me, ma'am?
Look into Haesang.
- Ma'am?
- I want to know what he's up to
and whom he's meeting these days.
[suspenseful music]
I told them to look
into Young Master Yeom's whereabouts.
What about that detective?
Are they still meeting?
Not often, but they're still
maintaining a relationship.
Have someone tail that detective.
Yes, sir.
[Hongsae] Hello.
- [door closes]
- Good morning.
Sir, do you know what happened last night?
Tell me what happened. Tell me.
What was so important
that you put aside what I asked you to do?
- You see--
- Didn't I tell you
to search the storage for a lead?
I did look.
But there was nothing helpful and--
You also left the storage door unlocked
when it wasn't even our precinct.
I'm sorry, sir. But it wasn't intentional.
I had to rush to a prior engagement.
It was my mistake.
Prior engagement, my foot.
Detectives should always
devote themselves to the job.
I've been doing everything
you wanted me to do.
I've been sleeping here
and working like a dog.
You're being quite heartless
when I was away for just a bit.
What if the culprit had appeared
while you were away?
Is there even a culprit
in this case you're digging into?
Everyone says that it was suicide,
but you're insisting that it was homicide.
Are you talking back to your senior?
[Hongsae] No, I'm not.
I'm just saying this for your sake.
Do you know what your colleagues call you?
The Rookie Shaman of Violent Crimes.
[officer] Hey, watch what you say!
So what if you have
a talented detective like me by your side?
You don't even make proper use of me.
You want me to find a lead in the storage?
- What can I find in that Let me go.
- [officer] Hey.
What could I possibly find
in that garbage?
[Munchun chuckles]
Talented detective, my foot.
I heard you joined
the Police University as the top student
but graduated at the bottom.
[sighs, scoffs]
Who said that?
Hey, you loser.
Listen carefully to me.
You couldn't find a lead
because you weren't looking for it.
You should've been as desperate as you are
about getting a promotion.
Why are you suddenly
bringing up the promotion?
Just shut up and listen!
[somber music]
You're a detective.
It's your duty to relieve
dead victims' grudges in their stead.
You need to have that sense of duty.
And I do.
Why are you talking about grudges
in this global day and age?
It's our job to catch culprits
based on objective causal relationships
and let the law punish them.
Good for you, Mr. Global.
Forget it.
I'll look for the lead myself.
[tense music]
Good luck with your global cases.
- [Hongsae sighs]
- Sir, don't be so upset.
[Munchun] Take back
all the meal tickets we gave him.
[door opens]
[door closes]
[Hongsae groans]
[Hongsae sighs]
Never mind.
Was it you?
What do you mean?
Did you tell him that I graduated last
and was desperate for a promotion?
Everyone knows about that.
[soft chuckle]
Anyway, it wasn't me.
It really wasn't me.
What's this? A murder case?
Mind your own business.
I was here yesterday.
What? Seriously?
Why would I lie to you?
I was at this wine bar yesterday.
She was found last night
in the women's bathroom
on the same floor as the wine bar.
[tense music]
- Cause of death?
- We're waiting for the autopsy result.
But the examiner thinks
it was a sudden death
due to cardiac arrest.
- A sudden death?
- Yes.
- So it wasn't a homicide?
- But there's one strange thing.
- What is it?
- [officer] Look.
Someone seems to have dragged her
into the stall.
They tried to hide her?
Then it's a homicide.
[officer] There's something else.
Among the victim's belongings,
an expensive luxury bag disappeared.
This was a limited-edition luxury bag.
The bag had the victim's initials, LJR.
[music intensifies]
[officer] Hey.
- Hey.
- What?
What do you mean?
You said you were there
at the wine bar yesterday.
Did you spot anything strange?
No, I didn't.
Darn it.
[tense music continues]
What could it be?
Here. Good luck.
[Hongsae] I'm the only one
who has uncovered this lead.
I will solve this case.
- [clanks]
- [groans]
[water sloshing]
[Sanyeong] I want to be alone
for the time being, so don't contact me.
[distant birds chirping]
[distant bell jingling]
[birds chirping]
[distant bell jingling]
[somber music]
I know I don't deserve this money.
[teller] Here is your withdrawal.
But I've never
felt this way before.
[inhales sharply]
[Sanyeong sobbing]
[sobbing continues]
[somber music continues]
[Sanyeong sniffles]
[window rattles, creaks]
[Sanyeong] Semi, let's meet.
I'll explain in person.
Semi, please call me.
[water rippling]
[Sanyeong sighs]
[ominous music]
- [switch clicks]
- [Sanyeong grunts]
[Sanyeong groans]
- [hands swiping]
- [bedsheet swiping]
[thumps on drawer]
It's still dusty even after cleaning it.
[music intensifies]
[ghostly voice] Vanity, third drawer.
[breathing shakily]
Why are you doing this?
[Sanyeong] Why are you doing this to me?
[tense music]
[drawer rattles]
[music fades]
[ominous music]
- [bucket clanks]
- [cleaning supplies rattling]
[music intensifies]
[drawer rattles]
- [drawer rattles]
- [music fades]
[suspenseful music intensifies, fades]
Jeez, I haven't seen
one of these in a long time.
This is very old.
It's urgent. How long will it take?
It won't take long to scan them.
- One moment, please.
- Okay.
[suspenseful music]
[keyboard key clacking]
[music fades]
[clacking continues]
[ominous music]
"The realm of hungry ghosts is
one of the Six Paths in Buddhism."
"Being hungry and thirsty,
hungry ghosts always covet."
"The realm was created by human desires."
Hungry ghosts?
[Semi] How pitiful.
How could I not have a spare dress shirt
when I have an interview in two days?
[Yoonjung] My husband is too competent.
We're pushing back our honeymoon
because his company needs him.
Cancun, just you wait!
Lucky you, Seo Yoonjung.
[eerie sting]
[suspenseful music]
[valet] Hello, sir. I'll park your car.
Did something happen here?
[officer] Copy that.
[music fades]
[Hongsae] Excuse me.
This place is off-limits. Please leave.
Haven't we met before?
[Haesang] In Gwangcheon.
Weren't you with Detective Seo Munchun?
Why are you here?
Someone died here, right?
The blood vessels in the deceased's eyes
had probably burst.
Who told you that?
It was a hungry ghost.
- What?
- A ghost.
[footsteps approaching]
He's not involved in this case.
You shouldn't have let him in.
- Please escort him out.
- Yes, sir.
The possessed individual will continue
to kill until their desires are satiated.
[officer] Please leave.
This case won't be the last.
He's just as crazy as her.
Sanyeong said the same thing.
[Hongsae] You don't have any CCTV footage?
[manager] No, and it's not just our bar.
They took all the footage
from this floor, the hotel entrance,
and the back door.
I see. Thank you.
The other detectives don't know yet
that the killer was at the wine bar.
I still have time.
[exhales deeply]
[suspenseful music]
[indistinct chatter]
The crime took place
in the women's restroom.
The estimated time of the crime
is between 7 p.m. and 10 p.m.
Usually, men avoid committing crimes
in the women's restroom in that timeframe,
given the high number of people
who come and go.
The killer is likely female.
[suspenseful music continues]
Gu Sanyeong couldn't have done it.
She left early
and wasn't carrying the handbag.
One of them is the killer.
This bar was full of random people.
An acquaintance wouldn't have picked
such a revealing place.
She committed the crime
out of the blue to get the handbag.
She could be naturally impulsive.
Or she could have been
under stress recently.
[switch clicks]
[Hongsae] Given the nature of this case,
it's highly likely
that she has committed theft before.
I can narrow down the suspects
by looking into previous similar cases.
[officer] Sir, are you still here?
What about that kid?
Come on. He's not a kid.
He's a competent detective.
Don't worry about me and just go.
Is that for me?
[bottle cap rattling]
[officer] I'll be off then.
- Okay, thanks.
- Bye.
[door opens]
- [door closes]
- He's not a kid.
He was a top student
at the Police University.
[Haesang] The possessed individual
will continue to kill
until their desires are satiated.
This case won't be the last.
[pensive music]
[suspenseful music]
- [fly buzzing]
- [groans]
[staff] What?
[staff gasps]
[Hongsae] "Bloodshot eyes."
"Cardiac arrest." It's the same.
[mouse clicking]
[passerby screams]
[Hongsae] Even the detectives
couldn't spot the similarities
since these cases occurred
in different precincts.
So how did he know?
- [doorbell rings]
- [door closes]
What's this about?
There's something I need to tell you.
Is it urgent?
I'm with a guest.
- Uh
- Is that Gu Sanyeong?
What brings you here, Hongsae?
- Do you know each other?
- Yes, we went to the same high school.
I don't mind if she stays.
I had something to ask you too.
I was about to call you.
- [Hongsae] This is actually better.
- Let's go upstairs.
[Hongsae] Okay.
Have a seat.
Please continue talking about
those angry or hungry ghosts,
or whatever they're called.
Hungry ghosts are just that.
They're hungry.
They were also called scrounging ghosts
or begging ghosts.
They were so common to people
that mid-Joseon scholar Yu Mongin
wrote about them in his book, Eou Yadam.
Are you telling me
that this ghost from the Joseon dynasty
is killing people?
Simply put, yes.
"Killing people"? Has someone died?
Yes, it happened
during Yoonjung's after-party.
A woman was found
in the restroom on the same floor.
And he's telling me that a ghost did it.
[tense music]
By the hungry ghost
that you just mentioned?
You two get along well.
[Hongsae] And you?
Did you see anything strange that day?
I think
one of our acquaintances is the killer.
- What?
- Do you have a suspect?
Do you perhaps
have any photos?
[Hongsae] What if I do?
- Then can you tell me who the killer is?
- Yes.
If a person is possessed by a ghost,
I can recognize them from a photo.
Do you have any photos
from the after-party?
Right. Yoonjung's social media account.
[Sanyeong] One minute.
[tense music continues]
Is the suspect one of them?
It's highly likely
that it was one of the women.
[Hongsae sighs]
Continue swiping and check the next photo.
I don't see it here.
I'm sure you don't.
[Hongsae] Thank you for your time.
Do call me if you remember
anything strange from that day, Sanyeong.
[Sanyeong] Are you sure
that the killer was our acquaintance?
- Why do you ask?
- Two people are missing.
What do you mean?
I don't see Yoonjung
[suspenseful music]
and Semi in these photos.
[intense music]
[music fades]
[suspenseful music]
Do you have any photos of them?
Yes. I'm not sure about Yoonjung's,
but I have Semi's.
It has to be a recent photo.
[Sanyeong] We've been too busy
to take any photos lately.
But it can't be Semi.
She's not someone who'd do that.
[Haesang] Where are you going?
To see Semi.
I'll come with you.
What about you?
[Hongsae] No, thanks.
I'll carry out
a more rational investigation.
[officer] Why are you asking
about the lawyer who died in the restroom?
We have already concluded the case
as a sudden death.
So he just suddenly died?
Were any of his belongings missing?
[suspenseful music]
Who told you that?
- Sorry?
- His luxury watch was missing.
That's why we wanted
to investigate this case as theft.
But the deceased's family claimed
that he had a habit
of taking off his watch when drunk.
He was heavily intoxicated that day.
Plus, his wallet full of cash
was left untouched.
So we just reported the watch as missing.
I see. Thank you, sir.
- [door rattles]
- [knocking on door]
I don't think she's home.
[line ringing]
Let's check
where she used to work part-time.
There you are.
Hey, that's a gorgeous blouse.
They say she hasn't come here in a while.
- [line ringing]
- Is she still not picking up?
[operator] Your call cannot be completed.
You will be redirected to voicemail
We can get rid of the hungry ghost, right?
Just like
how you can get rid of my evil spirit,
can you do the same for hers?
an evil spirit is a ghost
that harbors a grudge against someone.
I can cast it away
if I relieve its grudge.
However, a hungry ghost is different.
Hungry ghosts are created
by the individual's inner desires.
There's nothing we can do.
In that case
what happens to someone
possessed by a hungry spirit?
A friend of mine couldn't stop coveting
what others had.
He couldn't take it anymore
and committed suicide.
We have to hurry up and find her.
[Sanyeong breathing anxiously]
The evil spirit showed me
the hungry ghost realm.
I went to your place to tell you that.
Why would it do that?
I have no idea.
That's why I'm worried.
Let's focus on finding your friend first.
[Sanyeong sighs]
I have no idea where she could be.
[line ringing]
Try to think of all the places
she normally frequented.
Our phones.
We downloaded
a location-sharing app in the past.
I may not know her exact location,
but I'll know where she is
if her phone is on.
[suspenseful music]
Do you think you could lend me
your formal attire?
What? Lend you my formal attire?
I'll be careful and take it
to the dry cleaner before returning it.
I have an interview in two days
but I don't have time to shop for one.
Could you please help?
Let's get our facts straight.
It's not that you have no time.
You have no money to afford one.
[music fades]
[fly buzzing]
[officer mutters]
[officer] That case was heartbreaking.
She was still so young.
Her wedding was just around the corner.
What a shame.
Did any of her belongings go missing?
I don't think so.
Not even one?
[officer] No, none.
High heels, a handbag, and a watch.
High heels, a handbag, and a watch.
There was an item missing
in each of these cases.
So why not this one?
[suspenseful music]
She was engaged.
[suspenseful music continues]
Professor Yeom, she's somewhere nearby.
I'll look over there. You can go that way.
[suspenseful music continues]
[music fades]
[tense music]
[fly buzzing]
I visited your wedding venue
to investigate a case.
That place is quite popular.
[Hongsae] I heard they were fully booked
until next year.
But one of the brides-to-be
scheduled to get married there
suddenly passed away.
I heard that was how you were able
to have your wedding there.
We were lucky.
[interviewee] Or maybe we weren't.
As you can see,
we didn't have the money for that place.
Yoonjung's father's business went under,
so we're selling this place too.
The wedding invitation gathering
and the after-party too.
I told her we should book a cheaper place.
But Yoonjung insisted,
saying she didn't want her friends
to think less of her.
Was that your wedding gift?
Yoonjung insisted that I take it.
What if you keep it for yourself?
Take my handbag for example.
I bought it for the honeymoon.
So how could you just take it?
You would've kept it had I not called you.
[Semi] I already told you.
I only took it so I could find its owner.
[footsteps approaching]
[passerby] I'm serious.
[Semi] Hey, where are you going? Yoonjung!
I didn't know it was this difficult
to borrow some clothes.
[fly buzzing]
What's with this annoying bug?
Semi, are you okay?
What? How did you know I was here?
Where's Yoonjung? Where is she?
In there.
[foreboding music]
[fly buzzing]
[chokes, gasps]
[intense music]
[passerby coughing]
[Sanyeong] Snap out of it.
Seo Yoonjung!
[passerby whimpers]
What do I do?
Hey, snap
[passerby wheezing]
[music fades]
[shouts angrily]
What are you doing?
[vase rattling]
[yelps, breathes shakily]
No. No, no.
[Yoonjung breathing heavily]
- [footsteps receding]
- [breathes heavily]
Hey, where are you going?
I'll call for help.
[tires screeching]
[loud thud]
[passerby screams, whimpers]
[intense music]
[breathing shakily]
[music fades]
- [officer] Stop.
- [keyboard key clacks]
Have you identified her?
I did identify her
through the reservation list.
She's currently hospitalized.
Apparently, she attempted suicide.
Talk to her doctor
and see how she's doing.
- Yes, sir.
- Next.
- [officer] Wait.
- [keyboard key clacks]
[officer] Who is that guy?
That's Lee Hongsae. Right?
Did he purposely keep his mouth shut
when he knew about this?
[door opens]
[officer] Let's go.
We should report to our chief.
Let's go, you punks.
You shouldn't have done that, you punk.
[door closes]
[heart monitor beeping]
You've heard
of ancestral rite tables, right?
Our ancestors
pitied all the hungry ghosts,
despite not knowing who they were.
They prepared feasts to console them.
They did not have much,
but they still knew how to share.
But current society
has become more heartless.
And the hungry ghosts
have become more rapacious.
They look for people
who are just as desperate as they are
and possess them.
Yoonjung committed
an unforgivable crime.
don't we all have desires?
We all desire to be more comfortable
and happier.
[pensive music]
There's something I haven't told you.
I used your credit card
to buy pretty clothes.
I didn't have a care in the world
and had fun that night.
The evil spirit told me
that I was satisfying my own desires.
Back then, I could confidently say
that I had no such desires.
But I received
my grandmother's inheritance.
The amount
was far beyond what I could comprehend.
That's when I finally realized
that this
was what I had desired.
[pensive music continues]
I didn't know at first.
But perhaps
this is the real me.
I told you.
That the evil spirit would use
your weakness to its advantage.
You should stay out of this.
From now on,
I'll catch the evil spirit on my own.
- Hello, sir.
- [Professor Jang] Hey, Professor Yeom.
I found the person
who made that Line of Prohibition
with the small blade.
[phone vibrates]
[photo studio owner]
This is Minju Photo Studio.
Your photos have been printed.
[photo studio owner] Here you go.
[sucks teeth]
Some parts of the scanned files
turned out dark.
There was an issue with the machine.
We redeveloped them too. They're in there.
I see. Thank you.
[ominous music]
[Haesang] Have a seat.
[Haesang] Hello, ma'am.
My name is Yeom Haesang.
[shaman] Yes.
I made this Line of Prohibition.
When and whom did you make it for?
It was about a year ago.
It was for a close acquaintance of mine.
Professor Gu Gangmo.
But was this the only one you found?
I made five of these.
Why do you think he needed them?
I'm afraid I don't know.
He needed to find five objects
and identify the evil spirit.
That's all he told me.
[ominous music]
[doorbell rings]
[doorbell rings]
[door buzzes, opens]
[footsteps thudding on stairs]
[Sanyeong] Professor Yeom?
[shaman] These lines are used
to keep out bad luck.
Maybe he was trying to prevent
bad energy from entering.
Have you ever made these
for someone else as well?
[Haesang] What about
[shaman] Yes, I did.
I made five of these
for this woman as well.
[suspenseful music]
You. Who are you?
[associate] Can you see me?
Did you come here for me?
I thought the evil spirit showed me
the hungry ghost realm because of Semi,
but I was wrong.
It was actually pointing to you.
Who are you?
What do you know?
I don't know anything.
[associate] It's the truth.
I only saw the name.
The name?
Whose name?
[suspenseful music continues]
[associate] The one
who turned you into an evil spirit.
Their name.
[shaman] She visited me
a long time ago
after an introduction from Professor Gu.
[music intensifies]
[music fades]
[closing theme music]
[Chiwon] Are you Detective Lee Hongsae?
[Chiwon] We just need to know
what Detective Seo Munchun is up to.
Why should I help you?
High-level information
that could aid in your promotion.
[Sanyeong] I need to know
who they are and why they died.
[teacher] Do you know Ujin?
[Sanyeong] They all died because of him.
They wanted me
to chant a sutra for the deceased child.
[Haesang] I think
there was an evil spirit in our house.
- [Sanyeong over phone] Hello?
- [Haesang's Grandma screaming]
[Hongsae] Did you really not know
whose house that was?
Are you hiding something from me,
Professor Yeom?
Is this about
a juvenile ghost?
