The Korean film "Tabloid Truth," which was released Feb. 20 in South Korea, will be released Friday at the Pearlridge Consolidated multiplex. The action-mystery has a great plot and unpredictable ending. I personally enjoyed the film for its story and how well it developed throughout the film. Here is the synopsis provided by CJ Entertainment:
A scandalous rumor about up-and-coming actress Mi Jin is included as a gossip item in a stock market tipsheet and propagated by the tabloids, causing her to take her own life. Woo Gon (Kim Kang-woo), the actress’s longtime devoted manager, who dedicated everything to building her career, initiates a vengeful investigation to expose the sources of the malicious rumor. With unexpected assistance from tabloid distributor Mr. Park (Jeong Jin-yeong) and legendary wiretapper Baek Moon (Ko Chang-seok), Woo unravels the opaque and lucrative world of secret tips and salacious rumors.
