A man searches for his fiancée, who vanished without a trace just before their wedding ceremony—only to discover her shocking identity. HELPLESS is adapted from a mystery novel by Miyabe Miyuki, known as the queen of crime fiction in Japan. Lee Seon-gyoon (THE APPREHENDERS) stars as the veterinary clinic manager searching for his fiancée, Kim Min-hee (MOBY DICK) plays his fiancée with a suspicious history, and Jo Seong-ha (THE YELLOW SEA) plays Lee Seon-gyoon’s detective cousin, who helps out with the case. This is director Byeon Yeong-joo’s third feature after ARDOR (2002) and FLYING BOYS (2004) and her first attempt at a thriller.

Presented by the Smithsonian’s Freer and Sackler Galleries, with support from the Korean Cultural Center and the Embassy of the Republic of Korean, Washington, DC.
