Teaser for Kim Bum and Kim Kang-woo’s Psychometry

Ah, this title makes more sense: Psychometry is the paranormal crime thriller starring Kim Bum and Kim Kang-woo that formerly went by the (vaguer, less interesting-sounding) Miracle. While Psychometry is fairly literal as far as monikers go, it does seem much more fitting to the murder-investigation plotline.

The teaser’s out, which hints at an entertaining movie—maybe not the most original, no, but suspenseful and intense, and hopefully well-acted. Kim Bum is the mysterious young man at the center of our paranormal premise, because he’s got the uncanny gift of psychic reading. Kim Kang-woo is the dogged cop who’s on the tail of a serial child abductor whose most recent victim turned up dead, and the investigation leads him to suspect Kim Bum, a graffiti artist who paints an alley mural that’s suspiciously similar to the murder scene.

The trailer hints at an underlying motivation for our cop, who is fueled by the need to save missing children. Kim Bum at one point uses his powers to read his past: “Is that why you’re chasing him so hard? You think if you find those kids, your kid brother will come back alive?”

That freaks the cop out, needless to say. Till then the delinquent was just his suspect, but after he cottons on to his talents, he pleads with him to help. Time’s ticking, and they need a lead. Tick-tock, tick-tock.

I’m pretty sure I’ve seen bits of this story in multiple other projects before, and it does have that touch of familiarity. So I wouldn’t go into it expecting major surprises or unexpected twists. On the other hand: Kim Bum and Kim Kang-woo, facing off, lookin’ fierce, and then joining forces. Really, do we need more reasons?

Psychometry releases in theaters in March.

Haha, I didn't watch the drama either! But so glad I read the recaps - the "constipated monkey" comment (ep 15's recap) was hilarious. xD

Will wait for this. I don't care the already seen, been there. There is that dangerous atmosphere and 2 hot guys on my screen. Kim Bum is becoming really good with dark and fantastic characters.

This is my take too. Even if the plot is recycled the two hot men being all intense is enough for me.

Have to agree with you on Kim Bum!! Loved him in Padam, and he looks so good in this trailer!

Dark & fantastic is right!

he does look good and I mean it is like there is balance now between sharp & manly and the innocent youthful prettiness.

and it definately suits him better being sort of veiled, mysterious, above normal, rather than just one of the "regular drama guys". He is sort of like the Korean Elijah Wood or something.

Is Kim Bum going to make a career out of playing magical creatures? Not that he's done a bad job at it so far. I'm just asking.

I'm not a KKW fan but I love Kim Bum. Kim Bum + I like the premise = I'm in. And in keeping with Korean film, I'll expect a twist in the end that will either piss me off or make me scream. Or both.

His special psychic powers reminded me of a character in an American series "Heroes", Isaac who has precognition powers manifested thru his visual arts.

Kimbum!! I like how he choose his role lately. Pretty face and good acting in an interesting role. I'll take that anytime. But this is a movie, ugh, I don't know when will I be able to watch it with proper english subtitle.

Man - I'll watch this just for the eye candy. Good grief they're pretty.

Strangely (?) enough, I just decided to watch Mawang today with its heapin' helpin' of psychometry. So far, so good. I read spoilers on Thundie's Prattle, but that hasn't ruined anything.

It's not just you! He really has grown hot, and I have my fingers crossed for That Winter, The Wind Blows giving him an actual love storyline - can't wait to see him in a proper first lead role one of these days!

OMG Kim Bum and Kim Kang Woo? So innnnn!

Btw, I felt so .. eerie reading the synopsis because I had a very similar dream to this where I drew a picture of someone on a train station wall, and then they turned up dead at that train station. And then cops arrived and somehow I got linked to the investigation.... It's so weird................

Hmmmm - Korea's been coming out with a lot of good movies lately, no? The premises are definitely more interesting than the ones China have been coming up with i think.

I've seen so many Ip Man / wing-chun / origins of kung fu movies come out recently that i can't differentiate them anymore.
