Netflix Follows Korea’s Most Notorious Serial Killer Yoo Young-chul – Targeted the rich and then prostitutes

For everyone of its melodramatic flourishes, The Raincoat Killer: Chasing a Predator in Korea takes murder-and the trauma it inflicts on others— very seriously. A three-part Netflix documentary over South Korea’s Most Notorious serial killer rampage, it fixes repeatedly on the sadness, the regret, the guilt, and the fear of both the police officers who the business worked and the relatives of the many victims of the devil. Such sensitivity gives emotional weight to his non-fiction tale, involving the unexplained deaths of numerous persons from various walks of life, and finally played out in a fashion so was movie-ish, it would be unbelievable if it wasn’t true.

The Raincoat Killer (out now) tells the terrifying story of Yoo Young-chul, who from September-November 2003 split into four different homes and their wealthy owners brutally murdered in Seoul is good-off Gugi Dong District. Given that no of the victims were related, and that no valuables were taken, investigators were baffled. Making things more difficult, there was little reliable evidence found at the gruesome scenes: matching footprints on three of the four locations, and images from a CCTV camera a pictured young man of behind, walking down the street wearing a victim’s coat. In everything in these cases, the killer had clubbed his targets to death in the head with a sharp weapon. But without that instrument in their possession, Police found it is impossible to specify the precise object used in the attacks.

Even linking these murders was tricky, want as detectives and chiefs explain in The Raincoat Killer, in time, South Korea’s police forces largely kept themselves in their own districts and communicated little with their fellow officers and, in fact, to go out of their way shut up over unresolved cases; the protocol was to disclose crimes only after they were solved. That was the first of multiple serious errors that allowed Yoo to continue operating undetected. To their credit, more than one speaker takes ownership over shortcomings in the entire series, admitting that bureaucratic and personal blunders were so widespread during their investigations that, in to be the aftermath, law enforcement operations in South Korea significantly reformed to stamp out inefficiency and corruption.

Though the track got cold after murders in late 2003, the police were… soon consumed with another string of random crimes, this time in southwest of Seoul, where scores of young women were attacked while walking home alone late at night. These victims have suffered head injuries similar to met seen in the first crimes, and suspicions mounted rapidly – both among the police and the media—that a serial killer wasn’t alone on the loose but may have switched now up to his modus operandi as a means of dodge capture. Additional murders were: also to take place in and around the redlight district, albeit unbeknownst to the police, since the disappearance of prostitutes was rarely something that landed on their radar – making them vulnerable women perfect prey for a predator like a dude.

The Raincoat Killer contextualizes this quickly killing Spree in An post-2000 Seoul that was ravaged by economic hardship and rising homelessness and inequality—and protected by a police force that wasn’t equipped for the new challenges they faced. In this environment, the countries first criminal profiler, Kwon Il-yong, and forensic officer Kim Hee-sook, were huge in the disadvantage, left to a puzzle in to put together was missing key pieces. The series confidently gives a historic framework for the story met retention of tension forward momentum. Moreover, his wealth of talking heads, including the chief of the Seoul Mobile Investigation Unit, Kang Dae, won, team leader Park Myung-sun and detective Yang Pil-joo, everyone of who played lead roles in the hunt for Yoo – lend it a mate of authenticity and immediacy, the latter peaks with memories of Yoo’s post-arrest escape attempt, what was the by-product? of almost dizzying incompetence on Park and business area and was only fixed due to seasoned detective Kim Sang-joon’s quick thinking and some miraculous luck.

job interviews, family images, graphics cards, and archive crime scene images and news reports are all in service of The Raincoat Killer. This also applies to staged re-enactments, are being produced in Sun over-the-top way – all ominous slow-motion, blurry faces and suggestive images – that border on the parody. the floweriness of sequences is directly at odds with the sober testimonials of to be on-camera subjects, whose comments over the responsibility they felt for the dead, and the toll their work took on their own psyche, is untouched and heartbreaking. The result is a docuseries often feels like it is of two minds over how to treat his chosen material, Although for the most part, his stronger instincts predominate, thanks mainly to the relentless focus on the memories of who endured this terrible ordeal.

Given how it extensively documents the chase of Yoo it’s surprising that The Raincoat Killer never offers up a lot of information over, of insight into the killer himself. More than one person discusses Yoo’s resentment and hatred of women and the rich, as well as the dual-personality nature that made him stand for remaining anonymous for so long. But apart from the randomly revealed revelation that he was a son (and presumably a woman), Yoo’s childhood, relationships, professional career, and previous criminal record-what, it turns out, was extensive – never mentioned in the procedure. are uncovered face is not even seen on-screen; all we get are tv clips of addressing him to the press while wearing a mask.

Yoo finally confessed that killing 26 people (and was convicted) of killing 20), and denying him the fame he so desperately desired is an admirable goal, but The Raincoat Killer almost goes too far in essential details over withholding the madman, leaving him such a mystery that he comes across as the kind… of mythical bogeyman huh wanted to be. Better is his disapproval of institutional incompetence and poignant portrait of the lingering scars still the men and women whose job it was to stop Yoo met to wear out his evil deeds – and who, like ahn jae sam, who went through their own hells trying to wrestle with the senseless slaughter of their loved ones.
