Warning: Do Not Play is a 2019 South Korean horror feature film about an urban legend concerning a scary movie that was supposedly directed by a real-life ghost.

Written and directed by Kim Ji-won (The Butcher), the movie stars Seon-kyu Jin, Bo-ra Kim, and Ye-ji Seo.


A would-be female filmmaker, Mi-jeong,  investigates the urban myth based around a horror film that was allegedly directed a genuine ghost. During her search, she meets Jae-hyeon, the real director of the movie…


“While Seo Ye-ji is engaging as a heroine who cannot help but driven her curiosity despite the sense of dread accumulating around her, Jin Seon-kyu looks suitably scared and disturbed as required, and Ji Yoon-ho is also solid in his small but crucial supporting role. In conclusion, Warning: Do Not Play is an enjoyable genre piece…” Seongyong’s Private Place
