Directed by Chan-wook Park, Oldboy is based on a Japanese manga (comic). Dae-Su (Min-sik Choi) is an ordinary Korean businessman. After spending a drunken night on the town, Dae-Su is picked up by the police. While waiting to be bailed out, he is kidnapped and locked in a hotel room for 15 years without explanation. His only contact with the outside world is through television, which is how he finds out that his wife has been murdered and his daughter has disappeared. One day, just as suddenly as he was taken, Dae-su is set free with a wallet full of cash, a cell phone and a new suit. As he struggles to find out why these problems have befallen him, he discovers that the truth is worse then he could have imagined.
