This week, we are looking into the latest Korean movie release, Decibel (데시벨). The action movie takes us on a suspenseful journey as a former navy commander (Kim Rae-Won) receives a phone call from an anonymous man. The caller states that he has set up bombs in locations filled with people, including a soccer stadium and a water park. The bombs are "sound bombs" that will detonate when nearby ambient sounds surpass 100 decibels. Will he be able to stop these terror attacks?
