Note about CUT: - Cut - A successful film director and his wife are kidnapped by an extra, where the director is forced to play his sadistic games. If he fails, his wife's fingers will be chopped off one by one every five minutes. -Cut” is the story of a hotshot film director (Byung-hun Lee, “Joint Security Area”) who comes home only to get knocked out. He wakes up to find his wife strung up by wires and her fingers super glued to a piano, while he has a rope tied around his waist to limit his movements. The culprit is an actor, a faceless movie extra, who has gotten it into his head that the director has had it too good for too long and needs to be taught a lesson. A poor, self-pitying piece of scum who wants to exact revenge on the handsome and talented director because his own life has been filled with misery, the villain is cruel for the sake of being cruel, even offering the director an ultimatum: kill an innocent child, or watch the villain chop off his wife’s fingers one by one. - Strange dance routines -life put in jeopardy when an extra comes to his house and he is tied up in a room, if he doesn’t follow extra’s directions, he cuts off wife’s fingers one by one.
