About Rare Item
If it marked as a Rare Item, sometimes it might be a secondhand item in mint condition.
The Host director Bong Joon Ho presents a different kind of monster in a searing, subversive mystery thriller that rips through the facade of small-town Korea. Veteran actress Kim Hye Ja delivers a commanding performance as the devoted mother who goes to desperate extremes to protect her mentally disabled son, played by popular actor Won Bin (Taegukgi) appearing in his first film in five years. Premiering at the Cannes Film Festival, Mother opened in Korea to blockbuster reception, proving to be another commercial and critical hit for Bong.
Seemingly normal people and places peel away to reveal an unsettling portrait of small-town Korea gone wrong in Mother. When mentally slow Do Joon (Won Bin) gets arrested for murder, his mother (Kim Hye Ja) faces an uphill battle to clear his name. Everyone including the police are convinced that Do Joon is the culprit, but she knows that her son wouldn't kill. She begins to dig left and right to find the real killer herself, but her sleepy hometown holds many secrets that are best left unturned.

Hye-ja (Kim Hye Ja) is a long ago widowed mother who lives alone with her only son Do-jun (Won Bin : Autumn in my heart ). Although Do-jun is 28 years old, his mental capacity is far below someone his age and perhaps the reason for his many eccentric personality traits.
Late one night, Do-jun leaves a bar drunk and walks home. Along the way home, he follows a school girl down an alley, before a huge rock thrown his way chases him away. When he arrives home, Do-jun sleeps on the floor next to his mother like he always does.
The next day the police discover a murdered high school girl and a golf ball with Do-jun's name inscribed on it near the crime scene. With only this small bit of evidence, Do-jun is taken into custody and promptly arrested for her murder. His defense attorney looks for a quick plea bargain - which would require Do-jun to spend four years in detention - which isn't an option for Hye-ja and her only son. Faced with no other options, Hye-ja takes the initiative to prove her son's innocence.
