    A thriller tinged with mystery, as well as a subtly philosophical drama, Me and me offers a fascinating story that constantly surprises with its many surreal twists and turns. The prolific actor Jung Jin-young (The King and the clown) gets behind the camera with this daring first work, both in terms of direction and script, which he wrote himself. The excellent Cho Jin-woong (A Hard Day) proves to be extremely convincing in a complex role that required an actor at the top of his art...
