Six years after her son went missing, dedicated mother Jung-Yeon still hasn’t lost hope – even after her husband’s shocking accident while rushing to follow up on a potential sighting. Although she’s in mourning, drowned in despair for her losses, she doesn’t give up. Just when everything feels like it’s in vain, she hears about a young boy living in a fishing community outside the city who seems to resemble her lost son. Facing strange surroundings and corrupt cops covering up child abuse, Jung-yeon may not be able to handle all the obstacles in her way, let alone fend for herself.

User Reviews: I must have watched over 50 Korean movies but this is my first time writing a review for one. The tragedy is that I am writing a review for the worst movie in that lot. Korean movies are generally fantastic for their unabashed violence and realistic portrayal. Bring me home is a disgrace to Korean cinema. The entire plot can be explained in a single sentence, Woman walks around like a zombie for 2 hours. That’s the whole movie.
Generally Korean Cinema is so good that you will find more than a few subtitles for every movie. This one is so bad that they couldn’t find anyone who was willing to sit through it and transcribe the audio. The only subtitles available for this one is the Google translated one. Google translate is a fantastic tool to be honest. If the character is saying, "What is your name?" Google translate will translate it something like, What name is you?
The basic plot of the movie had potential but the lady who plays the lead is so dull that she kills off any desire you would have to watch it. If I was her child even I would want to get myself kidnapped just so that I wouldn’t have to spend another day with her. Lets hope this is her last movie ever. Nothing good can come from her continuing to act. She is like the Paula Patton of Korean cinema. Just a serious waste of 2 hours.
