New thriller film 'Toilet' accused of reenacting a controversial, real-life crime + director responds
Film director Lee Sang Hun's upcoming thriller 'Toliet' has been accused of reenacting a controversial, real-life murder case from 2016.
On August 10, the 'Toliet' staff revealed the official release date set for this August, as well as the movie's main poster.
Shortly afterward, the film caused an uproar on online communities, as onlookers claimed the story was based on a 2016 murder case which occurred inside a women's public restroom near Gangnam Station. If true, it is highly likely that the movie may be a reminder of a painful event for the victim's families. Also, the phrase on the poster reads, "Everything happened due to impulse and spontaneous rage."
