Min Ji-won is a sophomore sociology major who lost her memory on a high school trip years ago. She suffers from heart problems
too. Her only friend is a fellow sociology major who claims not to have known her before she lost her memory. Then she starts
to remember fragments of her life as her former friends mysteriously die from drowning. She starts having nightmares involving
a woman and starts seeing the same woman dripping water. She investigates to find the truth of what happened to her on that
trip and the ghost that is involved.
TEH GHOST is another moody horror film from South Korea. It works better as a mystery than a scray film. It is a little

SPECIAL FEATURES: Extras are brief. They amount to two brief promotional featurettes (six minutes of cast interviews and
two minutes of behind-the-scenes), TV spots, the original theatrical trailer, and the usual Tartan Asia extreme previews.
