[ominous music]
[theme music]
[ominous music]
aren't Mokdan, are you?
[thunder rumbles]
[breathes heavily]
[ominous music]
- [knocking on door]
- [Sanyeong gasps]
[Gyeongmun] Sanyeong, it's me.
Open the door.
[knocking on door]
[Gyeongmun] Sanyeong, are you in there?
[Gyeongmun groans]
It's frightening out here.
would Mom be here?
[knocking continues]
[Gyeongmun] Sanyeong.
I'm terrified out of my mind.
Sanyeong, it's me.
I'm scared.
[knocking on door]
Can you open the door?
I'm so scared out here. Sanyeong.
[Gyeongmun grunting]
- Sanyeong, I'm terrified.
- [knocking on door]
[knocking continues]
[breathing heavily]
[eerie music]
[Gyeongmun gasps]
Are you okay?
[Gyeongmun breathing heavily]
What happened out there?
All the tables were turned upside down.
[thunder rumbles]
[breathing heavily]
What's wrong? Let's go home.
This place gives me the chills.
Why didn't you pick up?
Why would you come here?
[Sanyeong sobbing]
A detective came by earlier today
and asked if you were okay.
Is something going on?
- [Gyeongmun] Tell me.
- Mom!
[Sanyeong panting]
You should go home.
I'll come home tomorrow, okay?
[breathing shakily]
It's dangerous at night.
[Sanyeong] So let's meet
during the day.
[suspenseful music]
[breathing heavily]
did you say that?
What do you mean?
That's exactly what your dad said to me.
YEAR 2002
[thunder rumbles]
[Gyeongmun] After my mother passed away,
I came here for the last time
to take you with me.
[suspenseful music]
[breathes heavily]
Let's go home, Sanyeong.
[thrilling music]
[Gyeongmun pants]
[breathes heavily]
[breathing heavily]
It's dangerous at night.
If you plan to leave with her,
do it after sunrise.
[thrilling music]
[breathes shakily]
- [sniffles]
- [lock clicks]
[pensive music]
- [young Sanyeong] I'm cold.
- Just a minute.
Your dad said
the same thing.
He said it was dangerous at night.
So why are you
saying the same thing?
[thunder rumbles]
Mom, come here.
[Sanyeong] Did you bring your medication?
[Gyeongmun gurgling]
[Sanyeong] Hold on.
Mom? Mom!
- [thunder rumbles]
- [rain pattering]
[Chiwon] Young Master Yeom.
- [knocking on door]
- Please open the door.
- Young Master Yeom!
- [Na Byeonghui] What are you doing?
- [Chiwon] Please open the door.
- Who was the dead girl?
It wasn't Lee Mokdan, was it?
What was her name?
[thunder rumbles]
Do you also want
[knocking on door]
to get rid of the evil spirit?
What are you trying to hide now?
What's it to you?
What's it to you if that ghost disappears?
I'm not hiding anything from you.
I told you everything.
The girl who died was Lee Mokdan.
That was her name.
[suspenseful music]
I knew it.
[thunder rumbles]
[books clattering]
What are you doing?
- [Chiwon] Bring the key! Quickly!
- [Haesang] Looking for a hint
that'll tell me who she was!
You'll die too.
[suspenseful music]
[thunder rumbling]
You'll die like the rest of them.
[books clattering]
I apologize, ma'am.
He barged in here all of a sudden.
Drag him out of here this instant.
Please stop. You're putting me
in a difficult situation.
[Chiwon] Please.
[tense music]
I'll figure out
that child's name even if I die.
[thunder rumbling]
I'll get rid of the evil spirit you made
with my own hands.
[thunder rumbling]
[tense music]
[thunder rumbling]
[Chiwon] What's the matter with you?
And why
aren't you coming home?
You also never pick up your phone.
What about you?
Did you really not know?
Did you really not know
what happened in this household
or why or how my mom passed away?
I told you before.
I don't know anything
about your mother's death.
[suspenseful music]
[rain pattering]
How did it go?
I couldn't uncover anything.
[thunder rumbling]
[thunder rumbling]
I once saw Sanyeong
getting mad at you in front of this house.
I didn't understand why at the time.
But now I know.
You can swear at them if you want.
They deserve it.
I could swear at them all I want.
But would that change anything?
I should focus on the investigation
with that time.
I'm going to thoroughly uncover
what your grandfather and father did
decades ago
and where their company spent their money.
If what you said is true,
we'll find an important lead
at Junghyeon Capital.
You're just like Detective Seo Munchun.
I'll look into Jangjin Middle School
and the remaining objects.
Let me know if you find anything.
[Sanyeong] I put her to bed
after she took some medicine.
I think she's better now.
Thank you for picking up so late at night.
[Sanyeong] She just woke up.
I'll call you back later. Thank you.
Mom, do you want some water?
Should I get you some?
This place
Do you remember this place?
Nothing has changed.
It's just as it was before.
[Gyeongmun] Sanyeong, I'm scared.
Let's go home. Okay?
No, Mom.
Don't be scared and look around, will you?
Dad missed us.
That's why he kept this place as is.
[Gyeongmun] No, you have no idea.
His gaze and expression at the time
I was terrified.
[Gyeongmun breathing heavily]
You're wrong, Mom.
Dad was sick.
[somber music]
He was taking this medicine.
What was it for?
For optic atrophy.
There's no cure,
and you end up going blind.
I went to that hospital and confirmed it.
[Gyeongmun] That can't be.
I don't believe it.
He couldn't tell you the truth
because it'd bring you pain.
How do you know that?
You said Dad said the same thing as I did.
That it was dangerous at night.
[somber music]
He probably said that
because of his illness.
But he must've felt the same way I felt.
I only said that
because I was so worried about you.
Did you only suffer
during your time with Dad?
Did you not have
any good memories with him?
[Gyeongmun] Right.
I was elated
when we first moved here.
I thought we'd be happy here.
YEAR 1999
How did you get this house?
I love it.
I'm sure he did what he could.
By the way, did Sanyeong eat anything
before going to bed?
She tossed and turned all night
and couldn't sleep much.
[Gyeongmun] So she needs to sleep.
- Make sure she eats when she gets up.
- [Gyeongmun] Okay.
[doorbell buzzes]
I'll go.
Who is it?
[visitor] Is Professor Gu Gangmo in?
[Gangmo] Why did you come here?
My family is inside.
[visitor] I had something to give you.
[Gangmo] What is it?
These were the items in the drawer
that the late Ms. Jeon
was looking through.
[Chiwon] Madam Na doesn't know
that I brought them.
Now that I've given you what you wanted,
please don't come back.
If Young Master Yeom finds out
what happened at the house,
he will be greatly hurt.
Please don't approach him ever again.
I beg of you.
I give you my word.
A camera?
About that camera
[suspenseful music]
Was it this one?
[ominous music]
I'm not sure. It looks familiar.
Who was he?
I asked your dad about him
because they looked serious.
But he never told me.
[ominous music]
Ms. Jeon passed away
while trying to get rid
of the ghost, right?
When she disappeared,
you sent me to pick up Young Master Yeom.
That's when I saw
how she passed away.
[Chiwon] Ms. Jeon.
He could die the same way.
You must stop him.
Don't run your mouth
when you don't even know anything.
[ominous music]
Don't you dare tell Haesang.
Got that?
[lock keys beeping]
[suspenseful music]
[keyboard clacking]
[Hongsae] Junghyeon Corporation.
Junghyeon Capital.
Yeom Seungok. Yeom Jaewoo.
At least give me something.
You should get some sleep, Mom.
Are you
looking down on me?
What are you talking about?
You gave Semi a ride when you got the car,
but I only got to ride it now.
No, I I was planning
to take you for a proper drive later.
Don't be like that.
You know you're the only one I have.
Then let's stop by someplace
before we go home.
- Where?
- Our café.
The café?
Are they already done with the renovation?
[Gyeongmun] It's not completely done yet,
but it's still good enough to show you.
[switch clicks]
[ominous music]
[Gyeongmun] What do you think?
I designed the place
as simply as possible to your liking.
Do you like it?
[Gyeongmun] What's wrong?
Do you not like it?
[somber music]
[Sanyeong] No. I like it.
Great job.
[Gyeongmun] Sit down.
Let me make you some coffee.
I came up with a name for the café too.
[Sanyeong] "Spring"?
It's almost the end of the winter.
Spring is around the corner.
I bet this place will look even prettier
from the outdoor terrace.
[Gyeongmun] Your coffee is ready!
[phone vibrating]
Did something happen?
Aren't you looking
for the remaining two
out of the five objects?
I want to help you.
Whenever I touched objects
related to the evil spirit,
I saw things.
Is that true?
Then why
are you telling me this now?
[Haesang] Can I really trust you?
Did you actually see such things?
I thought I was mistaken at first.
But I kept seeing them.
I think
they were the evil spirit's memories.
[pensive music]
When I touched the red hair accessory,
I saw a girl sitting in front of a mirror.
When I touched the black rubber band
at the reservoir,
I saw a woman who had hung herself
and the ocean.
[waves crashing]
And then,
I saw the blue pottery piece
at your house.
And I saw someone getting killed
in a shed.
If we find the remaining two objects,
we'll be able to learn more
about the evil spirit.
[pensive music]
I believe it's not too late.
We'll need a flashlight.
There are two remaining places
related to Professor Gu.
The first one
is the apartment which the librarian,
Chae Seorin, jumped from.
But the place is currently
under reconstruction, so we can't enter.
And the last one
is that place.
This area lost popularity
due to urban planning.
It has been abandoned
for more than a decade.
We need to search for it ourselves
since there's no custodian present.
[suspenseful music]
Where should we begin?
The victim hanged herself in the toilet.
Let's start there.
[suspenseful music continues]
I'm starting to remember less and less.
I can't tell if I'm me
or the evil spirit right now.
[Sanyeong grunts]
[Haesang] Is she the evil spirit
or Ms. Sanyeong herself?
Is everything she has told me so far true
or nothing but lies?
But for now, I need to use Ms. Sanyeong.
[Sanyeong] I don't care if you're Mokdan
or someone else.
The red hair accessory,
the blue pottery piece,
and the black rubber band.
I need to look
for the other objects, right?
Your coffee is ready!
[suspenseful music]
[Sanyeong] Spring.
Just think about Spring.
[pensive music]
[Hongsae] Embezzlement. Malfeasance.
Illegal loans.
And cold cases that were never taken
to court despite the suspicions.
This isn't it.
I'm sure there's something.
[suspenseful music]
"Investigation came to an end due to
the death of the suspect, Yeom Jaewoo."
[knocks on door]
[Sangmoon] Come in.
Hello, I'm Lee Hongsae,
Violent Crimes Investigation Unit Four.
- I know you.
- Sir?
[Sangmoon] You oversaw
Detective Seo Munchun's funeral.
Did you send him off well?
Let's sit down and talk.
CEO Yeom Jaewoo of Junghyeon Capital?
Yes, I remember him.
[Sangmoon] We met the day before he died.
I visited him at the hospital.
[Na Byeonghui] As you can see,
his health has worsened.
He can neither eat nor recognize people.
[pensive music]
He had
red bruises on his wrists?
That's right.
Apparently, they had to tie him down
due to his seizures.
[pensive music]
Professor Yeom's grandfather and father,
Yeom Seungok and Yeom Jaewoo,
both passed away at Sanae Hospital
at such a young age.
What brings you to our hospital,
Detective Lee?
I understand that you've been working here
ever since it opened.
I have a few questions about a patient
who passed away here.
I don't understand.
This hospital has a close tie
to Junghyeon Capital.
You've been receiving
development funds from them
since the days of its predecessor company,
Junghyeon Mutual Finance.
The total sum
amounts to over five billion won.
Why did they invest
so much money into this hospital?
The funds were for development purposes,
as the name implies.
[director] I don't know
what this is regarding, but please leave.
I have nothing more to tell you.
The statute of limitations has passed.
No one will get harmed.
I don't know anything. Please leave.
Director Lee.
It's best that you tell me now.
I could bring
a reporter with me next time.
I don't know anything.
I have absolutely nothing
to do with that incident.
[thrilling music]
I just did
what Madam Na told me to do.
That boy
was bound to die anyway.
[Hongsae] That boy?
[music intensifies]
- [door closes]
- [music stops]
There's nothing in the toilet or here.
There are no traces of anything
being buried or dug out.
[suspenseful music]
There's nothing on the ground.
We were mistaken.
Your grandmother's house
in Baekchagol Village
and the reservoir near the temple.
The objects were both outside.
But we're indoors here.
Blocking out bad luck
from the inside is a bit different.
When people built a new building
or moved into a new house,
they held a rite of enshrinement.
They hung an item under the ridgepole
as a way of inviting the household deity.
Whenever they had nightmares
or misfortunes around them,
they hung a dried pollack
so that the deity
would block out the bad luck.
"Block out the bad luck"?
It's similar to sealing an evil spirit.
[ominous music]
But I see no ridgepole.
I need to look inside the ceiling.
This is the wrong place.
[suspenseful music]
[Sanyeong grunts]
[suspenseful music]
[ominous music]
Ms. Sanyeong?
Do you see something?
Give that to me.
[Sanyeong in gasping voice]
What did you say?
[Sanyeong] Water
[Sanyeong screaming]
[tense music]
[Sanyeong panting]
I'm dying of thirst!
[store owner] What are you doing?
[Haesang] Please don't call the police.
I'll compensate you for everything.
[tense music]
[Sanyeong breathes heavily]
[Sanyeong] Water
[Haesang grunts]
[Sanyeong] Water!
[Haesang] That's enough!
[Sanyeong shrieks]
[breathing heavily]
[Sanyeong exhales]
I begged them
to give me
something to eat.
[Sanyeong panting]
I asked them for a sip of water.
I begged and begged,
and begged even more.
[victim breathing heavily]
[eerie music]
Seven days.
I stayed alive.
I survived for seven days
without any water.
But do you know
what those people said?
"You're still not dead."
[Sanyeong breathing heavily]
You all killed me.
You all killed me.
Yes, you're right.
[Haesang] We murdered and used you.
[pensive music]
But you're the same.
You used me too.
You used me
to get your hands on the five objects.
What'll happen once you find them all?
Hurry up and find it.
The last object.
Then you'll know.
[music stops]
[Haesang] I can only cast away the evil
spirit once I find the five objects.
But the evil spirit is using me
to find the objects.
Why would it do that?
[phone vibrates]
[Haesang] There were red bruises
on my father's wrists?
That's what the detective in charge
of your father's investigation told me.
That can't be.
My father didn't commit suicide.
I was told
that he suddenly collapsed at work
and never woke up again.
That was how he died.
At Sanae Hospital, right?
That was our family's designated hospital.
I heard
something strange there.
[suspenseful music]
[door opens]
What a lovely surprise.
I heard you had been waiting for a while.
You should've told me you were coming.
What's the matter?
Is something wrong?
What is this?
You need to hear this.
[Director Lee] Kim Ujin.
That kid had gotten into an accident
and was already in a critical state.
But Madam Na ordered him
to be transferred to our hospital.
How is he?
He's in a coma, but he's still holding on.
[suspenseful music]
He would've been better off dead.
[Director Lee] Sorry?
Don't come in.
[Director Lee] But Madam Na
Wait outside.
[door closes]
[heart monitor beeping]
[suspenseful music]
[Director Lee]
Then Madam Na came out of the room.
When I went in,
the boy
was dead.
And his pillow
was on the floor.
What is this?
[pensive music]
Who is he?
He's the director
of Sanae Hospital, where Ujin died.
You're wrong.
She would never.
Ujin's death was accidental.
He died in an accident.
That was what I thought to this day.
You should go. I don't believe this.
Mr. Kim.
He's lying.
Why would she?
I'll buy you a house,
so take that money and get lost.
Don't go around spreading nonsense
and never contact me again.
If you do,
I'll kill you.
[Chiwon] You should go.
[tense music]
[switch clicks]
[door closes]
[thrilling music]
[Haesang] That must've been it.
That must've been
when he found out the secret
that she had wanted to hide.
I'm sorry.
I'm truly sorry.
[breathes heavily]
Madam Na
How could she?
[Haesang] Mr. Kim.
The secret my grandmother
had wanted to keep
was about the evil spirit our family made.
Do you really not know anything about it?
Please tell me anything that you know.
[pensive music]
I signed this when I first met Madam Na.
Anyone who stepped foot in her house
had to sign one.
[Chiwon] I, Kim Chiwon,
promise never to disclose
any internal affairs
while working for CEO Yeom Jaewoo
and Junghyeon Capital.
If I were to disclose anything,
I will gladly receive
any disadvantages that may occur.
I had never broken that promise.
Your mother
always tucked you in early
in your bedroom on the second floor.
And she slept by your side.
[Chiwon] Do you remember that?
That's because
she didn't want you to find out.
Your father
always came home before sundown.
He never went out at night.
[Chiwon] Even during his business trips,
he never left his hotel at night.
Because the strange occurrences
always happened at night.
YEAR 1995
[Chiwon gasps]
[tense music]
[Chiwon] Why
Come and join me. It's good.
Don't mind him and just go.
[music stops]
[Chiwon] I just thought he had an illness.
I was worried,
but I didn't think much of it.
[pensive music]
But it was different that night.
- [thunder rumbling]
- [gasps]
[thunder rumbling]
[thunder rumbling]
[suspenseful music]
[breathing heavily]
will die.
[thunder rumbling]
[breathes heavily]
He threatened to kill my mother?
Because she was the person
he cherished the most.
[Haesang's father]
We've made more than enough money.
That's for me to decide.
That accursed evil spirit
wants to kill my wife.
Do you know why?
Because she's the one
you cherish the most.
What do you mean?
In return for giving us wealth,
we need to satiate
the evil spirit's desires.
Your most precious possession.
That's what it desires.
Is that what happened
to my father as well?
[Haesang's father] Did he kill someone
who was dearest to him?
And you let it latch onto me
even when you knew that?
But thanks to it,
we became wealthy.
[Haesang's father] That damn money.
It may be important to you,
but not to me.
I can't live like this anymore.
[ominous music]
[breathes shakily]
That shaman told you
how to get rid of the evil spirit, right?
If you ever want
to get rid of the evil spirit,
follow these instructions.
[Choi Manwol] You must be precise.
If you get any of the five objects
or its name wrong,
the person who attempted
to get rid of the evil spirit will suffer.
I need to know how to get rid of it.
[Haesang's father] Give me the paper.
[suspenseful music]
[lock clicks]
Are you sure
you won't regret this?
That safe holds the key
to casting away the evil spirit?
I need to find it.
No, Haesang!
Your father. He passed away because of it.
He didn't just succumb to an illness.
YEAR 1995
I'd like to meet his doctor.
Follow me.
[pensive music]
[Na Byeonghui] Keep an eye on Jaewoo.
[Chiwon] Have some water.
[Haesang's father gurgles]
- [clacking]
- [gulping]
[intense music]
[suspenseful music]
[Chiwon] Sir.
You need to eat something.
You've been refusing to eat or drink
for the past five days.
Help me
[Haesang's father mutters]
- Sorry?
- [Haesang's father] Help
[music stops]
[suspenseful music]
[Chiwon] He refused to eat or drink
ever since he opened that safe.
They even gave him an IV drip,
but he pulled it out himself.
[Chiwon] There was no use.
He didn't just die due to an illness.
He starved himself to death.
The evil spirit killed him.
It made him starve just like it did.
Excuse me. Weren't you Munchun's partner?
You oversaw his funeral.
Yes, that's correct.
I heard you were on leave,
but you must be working.
I had to read over some documents.
Are you here to see me?
Munchun had been looking
into one specific case.
It was the suicide case in Hwawonjae.
Does it sound familiar?
Yes, I'm aware of it.
He asked me to let him know
if I found anything unusual.
I was nearby, so I thought
I should at least tell his former partner.
[breathing heavily]
[breathing shakily]
[pensive music]
[breathes heavily]
[eerie music]
[doorbell buzzes]
[door opens]
Let's talk inside.
What's this about?
It's very important.
It won't take long.
Please sit here.
[ominous music]
Why are you here?
[Hongsae] Was it your idea?
Or was it the evil spirit's idea?
What do you mean?
What is that?
Why aren't you looking at me?
Are you unwell?
I'm really not feeling well today.
I think you should go.
I don't know what's wrong
but do call me when you feel better.
I have something important to tell you.
[phone ringing]
[ringing continues]
[ominous music]
[phone ringing]
[door closes]
[Sanyeong groans]
Gu Sanyeong, are you okay?
[Hongsae] What is it?
It's okay. I'm fine.
- Sanyeong, look at me.
- [Sanyeong] Please leave.
[Hongsae] Can you not see anything?
Is that it?
Look at me.
[Hongsae] I said look at me.
Can Can you not see?
[breathes shakily]
[somber music]
Come on, tell me.
I can't.
I can't see.
For now,
the blindness comes and goes.
But I'll eventually become
permanently blind.
[Sanyeong] It's unfair.
I still have so much I haven't done.
I thought that someday
I'd be able to live
doing all kinds of things,
just like everyone else.
I had that hope.
[Sanyeong] But you know what?
I can see with the evil spirit.
It says I'll continue being able to see
if it continues to live in me.
[Sanyeong] It kills people.
It's a horrible ghost.
But I still need its power.
[somber music]
You don't remember what you did
yesterday evening, do you?
[Hongsae] Those papers.
[Sanyeong sniffles]
What is this?
The detective who investigated
your paternal grandmother's case
visited me.
Among the testifiers
was a life insurance agent
who knew Professor Gu Gangmo.
He reported something strange
to the detective.
[suspenseful music]
How could you not even bother calling
to say you'd be late?
Follow me.
[Sanyeong] I signed these papers?
- Yes.
- What are they?
Gu Sanyeong.
The insured,
Yoon Gyeongmun.
My mom?
You took out a life insurance policy
that would give you a hefty sum
if your mom passed away.
The evil spirit's next target
is your mom.
[somber music]
No! What do I do?
- [Hongsae] Sanyeong, wait.
- [Sanyeong] Mom!
- Mom
- [Hongsae] Where are you going?
- Where?
- [Sanyeong] To my mom. I need to go!
[Hongsae] Snap out of it.
Let me go!
How can you possibly go anywhere
in this state?
[breathing heavily]
Take a breather.
Calm down a bit.
[Sanyeong sobs]
[sobbing continues]
Gu Sanyeong.
I must catch
that evil spirit that has possessed you.
[Hongsae] What'll you do?
Professor Yeom Haesang.
I need to see him.
[Haesang grunts]
The evil spirit took out
life insurance on your mother?
In return
for granting its host wealth,
the juvenile ghost
wants the person you love most.
I want
to get rid of the evil spirit.
[pensive music]
Since when did you have trouble seeing?
And what was with the moon drawings?
Moon drawings? What is he talking about?
You haven't told us everything, have you?
Tell us.
[Haesang] What's the matter?
Did the evil spirit
threaten to harm us if you disclosed it?
I don't care,
and I'll put up a good fight.
So tell me.
[Hongsae] The same goes for me.
Tell us.
Before Detective Seo passed away,
he grabbed a document
signed by my dad,
which confirmed the receipt of belongings.
That's probably not it.
I checked that form too.
There was another sheet of paper
behind it.
There were three Chinese characters
written on it.
[pensive music]
[Sanyeong] This was the first character.
But the other two were too complicated.
Isn't this "ho" for "house"?
You're right. A three-character word
that starts with "ho."
Did you say it was written vertically?
Is this it?
I think this is right.
The family register.
Detective Seo said that he had restored
the report on Lee Mokdan's case.
[Hongsae] Her family.
One of them is the evil spirit.
A female student
from Jangjin Middle School.
It's highly likely
that she was Mokdan's sister.
we don't know her name.
Can't we just get another copy
of her family register?
We need to know the domicile of origin
and the head of the household.
But that information
was omitted in the case file.
It was such an old case file after all.
What did you see
when you touched the glass bottle?
[Sanyeong] I saw glass bottles
with colorful powder in them.
They fell and shattered on the ground.
And someone holding
a glass bottle with red powder in it
was standing in front of your house.
If that's the evil spirit's memory,
then something must've happened
at that house.
And my grandmother
must know what happened.
What about Vice-president Kim Chiwon?
Did he say anything?
He just has a fragmented memory
of the evil spirit.
He said the instructions
on how to cast it away were in a safe,
but I'm sure it's fake.
[Haesang] My father was killed
while following those instructions.
And my mother probably did the same thing.
So did Professor Gu Gangmo.
[Hongsae] And Jangjin Middle School?
That school closed down in 2000.
Still, their information must've been sent
to the relevant office of education.
There may not be any staff records,
but the student records
are probably still there.
We haven't identified the evil spirit.
We need to know
whose student record to look for.
[pensive music]
Then it boils down to one solution.
Your grandmother.
We need to make Ms. Na Byeonghui tell us.
[suspenseful music]
It's our lucky day.
The Safe Day.
The Safe Day?
It's a day when you're safe,
even when the household deity's jar falls
or if a dead body is placed upside down.
[pensive music]
There's only one day in a year
when ghosts can't appear.
It's February 9th in the lunar calendar.
[Haesang] It's February 28th
in the solar calendar this year.
I think we can use this day
to our advantage.
[suspenseful music]
[doorbell rings]
[knocks on door]
Come in.
You have a guest.
It's you.
The dead professor's daughter.
[suspenseful music]
Don't just stand there. Sit down.
Why are you here?
Your grandson.
He's dying to know my name.
He'll come back here tomorrow
to ask about me.
[Na Byeonghui] Right.
The Safe Day.
A professor of folklore
would know about that day.
So what?
If this girl knows, then I'll know too.
[music intensifies]
[music stops]
Are you going to kill Haesang too?
Am I not allowed to?
I killed my husband and son.
Why would my grandson be any different?
- [thumps]
- [Na Byeonghui groans]
YEAR 1979
[Na Byeonghui's husband grunts]
What did you say?
I can't?
What gives you the right?
I've made more than enough money.
I'm finally going to get rid
of this annoying ghost
and enjoy my life.
Are you seriously content
with this chump change?
- [glass shatters]
- [Na Byeonghui shrieks]
Bring me the paper inside the safe
while I'm still being nice.
That crazy bastard.
After all that we did to get this far.
I didn't create that ghost
just to get my hands
on some petty money.
[Na Byeonghui's husband] Should I kill
this bastard then?
[ominous music]
Then give him another name.
And keep my real name to yourself.
what'll happen to me?
You'll live
if I live.
[tense music]
I'll live
if you live.
I'll keep that promise,
[music intensifies]
[closing theme music]
[Haesang] I found the last object.
[shaman] Ghosts are adept at deceit.
They often turn out to be traps.
Professor Yeom, it's happening again.
[knocking on door]
- [knocks on window]
- [Haesang] Please open the door.
The evil spirit will do
whatever it takes to stop us.
The evil spirit is about to kill my mom!
[Gyeongmun chokes] Run.
[under breath]
Run, Sanyeong.
