Jung Jae-young and Daniel Choi in time slip thriller

And just when you thought you’d seen your last wormhole, here’s another set of time-travelers, coming your way. Jung Jae-young (Our Sunhi), Daniel Choi (School 2013), and Kim Ok-bin (Sword and Flower) star in a new sci-fi thriller movie called Eleven O’Clock, about a set of researchers who travel ahead one day in the future to find that twenty-four hours from now, they’ll all be dead. They return to the original time and then race against the deadline (hur, hur) at—you guessed it—eleven o’clock.

It’s a venture into uncharted genre waters for director Kim Hyun-seok, of Cyrano Dating Agency, who usually does comedies. I’m happy about the reunion with Daniel Choi, but a little sad it isn’t for a rom-com. Oh well, I guess there’s always a third time for that.

The trio star as scientists who inadvertently discover during a test-run time travel experiment that they’ll all be dead in a day’s time. What begins as a story about the sole survivors of an attack ends up a whodunit mystery, because they’ll soon discover as they go back in the timeline that one of them must be the killer.

The premise is kind of an everything-but-the-kitchen-sink scenario, with a ticking clock, a vaguely sci-fi space-like research facility shrouded in mystery, a time machine, and a murderer/traitor in their midst. Not to mention the strange And Then There Were None aspect to the mystery where they all end up dead, at least in one version of the future. While I admit the time travel part sounds pretty old hat, the one-of-us-is-a-killer thing always raises the hair on the back of my neck, especially when they’re trapped both by space and time. Hope the thriller packs some thrills.

Eleven O’Clock premieres November 28.

I really want to see this. That kind of whodunit premise always gets me excited.

Especially if the reason they're all dead is because they go forward, see they're all dead, go back to prevent it therebye inadvertently setting in motion all the deaths. Self-fulfilling futures for the win! Err, except they'll die, since how do you prevent the future death you know about it if knowing about it is what makes it happen, so the only way...

I know! They rush to create a machine that takes them BACK one days so they can skip the trip entirely.

Of course, the only way we know it's successful is that we watch a boring show where absolutely nothing happens...because if they go back a day and succeed, they would erase the reason they even know to go back one day...which sort makes going back one day impossible.

Ok, head ache.

My reaction to the description is "eh." Not very enthusiastic. My reaction to the thriller is a more mildly interested "hmmm." Not sure if I'll see it. Daniel Choi is great though.

Yeaaah, Daniel Choi in another rom-com. Anticipate Love was too short.

On the other hand, this sounds like fun, and those "locked room" mystery type things are always exciting for me, really. I would definitely love to give it a watch.

Well yes but Cyrano Dating Agency wasn't meant to be a thriller, so I don't think you can hold this movie to the same standards, but of course you can compare their lowest common denominator, Daniel Choi.

I thought I was the only that noticed that. I love Kim Ok Bin with the long hair style. NTL, I might watch this movie for her.

That sounds like my kind of thriller. I love the whole one-of-us-is-a-killer where even that murder doesn't know it'll be him. Kinda looking forward to this. I really like CDA, so I'm hoping this duo can pack another great punch.

Jung Jae-young has got to be the busiest guy with film projects this year. Love him and he is one hell of an actor.
Daniel Choi maybe not be the best actor out there but I love him to pieces. Glad to see Kim Ok-bin's return to the big screen.

JJY is one of Korea's best actors and I have yet to be disappointed with his work.

As for Choi, don't see what the deal is w/ him - he's an OK actor but not really good-looking (again, just OK).

Kim Ok Bin is the killer. She accidentally blows all of them up attempting to get brutal revenge on the agent who signed her up for 'The Sword and Flower.'

All I'll say is, yay for Daniel Choi being in more things (School 2013 made me a fan of every single person in the cast - and I was shocked to find that he was so young, ha! He plays older so convincingly.).
