“Forgotten” is a South Korean film written and directed by Jang Hang-jun. The film was released in 2017 in South Korea and was later released in the U.S in February 2018. 

This film surrounds a character named Jin-Seok and his small family of four that moves into a new house in 1977. Everything was pretty normal, though after only a couple days of living in that house Jin-Seok’s brother (Yoo-Seok) was kidnapped on the street and shoved into a van.

After 19 frantic days of the family searching for Yoo-Seok he reappears out of the blue with no recollection of what happened during the time he was abducted. Yoo-Seok seems different to Jin-Seok as if he was a different person now. With this suspicion arousing in Jin-Seok he decided to look for the truth behind the bizarre kidnapping of his brother revealing mind bending truths. 

This film is an excellent choice for those who like psychological thriller and mystery themed movies. It is currently streaming on Netflix with a runtime of 1 hour and 48 minutes.

This movie is rated TV-MA and contains violence, murder, and suicide. Personally, I believe that this movie can be viewed by those ages 16 and up. 

Overall “Forgotten” is a great must watch thriller movie.
