About Decision to Leave

Decision to Leave was previously listed on the list of 15 preliminary candidates for the International Film category, but was not included in the final nominations. Decision to Leave is a melodramatic thriller about detective Hae Jun (Park Hae Il), who is tasked with investigating an accidental death, feeling suspicious and interested in Seorae (Tang Wei), the wife of the deceased.
