Synopsis by Josh Ralske
Jung-won (Park Shin-yang) falls asleep on the subway one evening. He wakes up to find the train at the end of the line. He bolts off before the doors close, then turns back and sees two little girls still on the train as it pulls off to the railway yard. We learn that Jung-won is an interior designer. His rather controlling fiancée, Hee-eun (Yu Seon), gets a very modern table for his apartment with spotlights over each of the four chairs. The next day, Jung-won learns that the two little girls he spotted were later found dead on the train, apparently poisoned by their mother. Jung-won's dismay only increases when he sees the two girls again, this time slumped over his new kitchen table. Terrified, he begins spending his nights at the home of his father, a pastor at a church. Jung-won goes to see a psychiatrist about renovating his office and runs into one of his patients, Yon (Jeon Ji-hyeon of My Sassy Girl). He feels strangely drawn to the withdrawn young woman. He soon learns that she suffers from narcolepsy, and when she faints in his presence, he takes her to his apartment, where he's shocked to find that Yon can also see the ghosts of the two girls. Yon separated from her husband after the death of their young child, and she is testifying in the trial of the woman responsible for that gruesome death. Jung-won finds himself getting more and more obsessed with Yon, and learns that she has a strange and dangerous power. The Uninvited was the feature debut of writer/director Lee Soo-youn. The film was shown at the 2004 New York Korean Film Festival.
