Office dir. Hong Won-chan (Midnight)

Lacking major stars, featuring a familiar serial killer story and coming from a first-time director, Office doesn’t immediately jump off the page, at least until you discover that director Han Jun-hee is best known for putting pen to paper on both Na Hong-jin’s The Chaser (2008) and The Yellow Sea (2010).

An entire family is murdered and the serial killings are traced to a company office. Detective Jong-hoon comes in to investigate.

The major name in the cast here is Ko A-sung, the young star from both The Host (2006) and Snowpiercer (2013). Beyond that, a number of talented performers fill out the ensemble cast, including Park Sung-woong, also appearing in Un Certain Regard title The Shameless, and ace supporting star Bae Sung-woo. - Pierce Conran
