Seire is the period of twenty-one days in which people are supposed to take utmost care in their behaviors and strangers are not allowed to visit to protect a newborn baby from bad luck. The film SEIRE takes an idea from this folk belief. Woojin, who has just became the father of a newborn baby, hears that Seyoung, whom he had once dated, has died. He goes to her funeral without telling his wife, and comes across Yeyoung, Seoyung's twin sister. Following this encounter, Woojin and his family experience a series of horrific misfortunes.

    "A first-time father experiences a bad case of the “baby blues” in Korean writer-director Park Kang’s engrossingly steely feature-length directorial debut Seire. Named after the three-week period during which, according to traditions, a newborn is especially vulnerable to misfortune, the film balances psychological probings and potentially supernatural elements in deliberately disorienting and accomplished fashion. "

    "Superstition and fatherhood collide in Park Kang's crisply staged and chilling indie horror debut Seire.... Kang has a firm command of the tone of his tightly paced story.... [N]o matter how perceptive you think you may be as a viewer, the film's gleeful climax will be a welcome and wicked surprise."
    Pierce Conran, Screen Anarchy
