 The reasons why every summer Korean horrors populate the big screen can be traced down to the success of Park Ki Hyung's Whispering Corridors, and of course the enormous influence Nakata Hideo's Ring had on Asian horror films. But Korea's homegrown horror genre dates back a lot further, and one of the most intriguing early entries of the genre is Lee Yong Min's 1961 horror A Devilish Homicide.

 Although the 60s golden age saw its share of Dracula-themed horror films, the majority focused on family themes, like the rivalry between sons or daughters and evil stepmothers (in some way re-adapted masterfully by Kim Ji Woon in A Tale of Two Sisters), or between wife and concubine. Often set near the end of the Joseon Dynasty, just as the country was starting to be influenced by Western customs, many of these films were inspired from novels or legends of the time. A Devilish Homicide stars horror queen Do Geum Bong as the dead wife of Lee Si Mok (Lee Ye Chun). Si Mok finds a portrait of his wife in a gallery. His first instinct is to bring the painting home to his painter friend Chun Cheol (Chu Seok Yang), who in a rush hides him and the painting under a bed. While hiding, his friend gets killed by a mysterious woman, and all Si Mok can do is run away to avoid any trouble. But when he brings home the painting, strange events start taking place, such as the reappearance of his dead wife.
