A life-threatening hide-and-seek between a psychopathic killer and a deaf woman, Midnight, will be released on June 30. The story is about a girl with hearing impairment, Kyung Mi (Jin Ki Joo), who witnesses a murder at midnight and becomes the new prey of the serial killer, Do Shik (Wi Ha Joon). The release date has been confirmed and the main poster is released for the first time, raising expectations.

The released main poster catches the eye with the appearance of the two characters facing each other, and the blue color reminiscent of Midnight makes viewers feel cool. Jin Ki Joo, who portrays Kyung Mi, is staring somewhere with an anxious and fearful expression, while Wi Ha Joon, who portrays Do Shik, throws eerie gazes, creating contrast and stimulating curiosity.

The words, "The hearing-impaired eyewitness becomes the target of a serial killer" convey the birth of their unique thriller, and adds anticipation as it predicts that they will provide extreme tension through a fierce chase.
