'The Wig (Unrated)'
(Chae Min-seo, Yoo Seon, Sa Hyeon-jin, et al / DVD / NR / (2005) 2008 / Cj Entertainment)
Overview: A young woman fights for her life against cancer and due to her chemotherapy treatment looses her hair. In an attempt to make her feel more comfortable when going out, her sister innocently gives her a wig. Little do they know, due to a tragic and deadly history, the wig is irrevocably cursed. As the dark and troubling past of the wig unfolds, horrific terrors begin to invade both their lives.
DVD Verdict: OK, so the premise is beyond easy cheesy: A young woman is struggling against cancer and her sister decides that she should take her home so that she really can enjoy what little time she has left rather than to spend it in a hospital. So she buys a wig for her so that she can go out without having to feel ashamed of herself. BUT, what she doesn't know is that the wig is cursed!
Told ya!!! That said, 'The Wig' is about both sisters as it seems for most of their lives, the two young women have nurtured a loving sisterly relationship - one that has only grown stronger in the face of adversity, that is - until this one fateful day.
When Su Hyon (Chae Min Seo, from Champion and Aegis) loses her hair due to the chemotherapy treatment, Chi Hyon (Yoo Seon, from The Uninvited) decides to give her younger sister that ill-fated, yet beautiful wig. Immediately, Su Hyon begins to change in ways her elder sister never expected.
While the wig rejuvenates her body and spirit, it also begins to take over her mind, as Su Hyun starts to transform into an entirely different sort of woman. Clearly, this is no ordinary hairpiece. Soon enough, sibling rivalry erupts as the two compete for the love of Chi Hyon's boyfriend, a complicated love triangle that climaxes in surprising ways.
It's obvious that the wig seems to feed on the memories of its possessor, but why? What secrets does it hold?
