Coming to Netflix on Nov. 27, “The Call” is a South Korean mystery thriller film about a woman in the present who happens to answer a phone call from a woman living in the past.

“The Call” stars South Korean actress, singer and model Park Shin Hye. She has gained recognition for her roles in numerous TV dramas, including “Memories of the Alhambra”, “Pinocchio”, and “The Doctors”, and also starred in the zombie thriller film “#Alive”.

Unlikely friendship

Park Shin Hye plays Seo Yeon, who somehow receives a mysterious phone call from a woman living in the past — 20 years ago.

This woman, Young Sook, is played by Jeon Jong Seo, who is best known for the critically acclaimed South Korean psychological thriller film “Burning”.

Seo Yeon and Young Sook quickly become friends despite living in two time periods.

That is, until a future that should never have been revealed is exposed (and a past that should never have been reversed) and their friendship heads towards a catastrophic ending.

Streaming on Netflix on Nov. 27.
