Yoga Institute aka Yoga Hakwon

 Yoga Institute aka Yoga Hakwon

(Korea 2009)


Hyo-jung visits a mysterious yoga institute run by an ex-actress. At the intensive training course, a young yoga master, Nani (Su-yeon Cha) explains to Hyo-jung and four other girls that only one person who masters the course most successfully can get the secret of ultimate and immortal beauty.

There are five rules for them to follow during the one week course: 1. Do not eat, 2. Do not take showers within an hour after class, 3. Do not look into a mirror, 4. Do not go out of the building, 5. Do not call anyone.The Girls start to break the rules....

I know some of you have problems with zshare so heres a few pointers that may help you.
Zshare does not work on ps3 now since sony updated the firmware.
Also make sure you turn off any ad blocking software that is running on your browser otherwise you wont be able to click the "close to Play " part on the ad that starts the movie.
If you cannot see the progress bar at the bottom of the player or cannot see the "close to play" part on the ad, try holding down CTRL and pressing the + or - buttons to resize your screen .
If you cannot play the Movie at all try changing browsers Ive been told that google chrome seems to be very good with zshare, Firefox and Internet Explorer work fine for me.
Lastly if the worst comes to the worst you can always download the movie by clicking " download video" link on the player.

Couldnt get it to work under firefox even after disabling ad block plus. And couldnt get it to download either. Might i recommend a site to upload to. I like believe it allows you to watch movie from site..It has a 30 second wait though..
MovieFan1 (3/25/2010 @ 1:24 am)
Thank You once again for uploading this great movie! I am very glad that this movie is not using DivX Webplayer though.

illuminati (3/25/2010 @ 3:09 am)

What a cool Movie.I think Korean Movies are my favorite.8/10
Mika (3/25/2010 @ 7:26 pm)
Pretty good movie. The ending was a little weird and it wasn't as scary to me. The story was interesting though. Beauty does come with a price.
Rainbow (3/26/2010 @ 12:05 am)
Koreans never cease to surprise me. Even though this isn't all that scary, it sucks you in and keeps you wonderin. The ending was kinda confusing(like a lot of korean movies) but it doesn't take away from the movie that much. I'd say its worth watching.
Jessica (3/26/2010 @ 12:37 am)
I don't understand the end :(
Laine (3/26/2010 @ 1:01 am)
thanks for the movies..
z share is way way better than divx.. :)
ANGRYCAMEL (3/26/2010 @ 3:00 am)
The ONLY thing that pissed me off about this movie is;
that the scenes are TOO DARK for you to see what's actually going on!You've got to really brightened up your screen or you'll just have to FIGURE OUT what's happening.I find myself straining my eyes out many many MANY times during the course of watching this.With that out of the way,about this movie;It IS a VERY GOOD horror thriller.
Happy-abel21 (3/26/2010 @ 3:37 am)
Really good Movie.I found the subs and quality to be excellent too.I find the Korean movies to be so much better than the Japanese ones now.
Tora (3/26/2010 @ 7:13 am)
Hmm, the main character was sort of a b****. The movie was pretty good, and I agree that it was pretty dark to see some of the scenes.
OMG (3/26/2010 @ 8:05 am)
please do not accept those advertisement that have a video that plays by itself because if that video was a advertisement on the player it will never stop playing and its fucken annoying.
OMG (3/26/2010 @ 8:06 am)
even if you "Close the video to play" that stupid video advertisement will still playing but just not seen.

The end was a bit confusing , but it does make you think.The women where so beautiful in this too and the yoga moves were very cool.Was the mirror symbolic at the end you think?
Inf (3/26/2010 @ 9:47 pm)
For those who is annoying by the commercial playing by itself.
Do not stop or rewind or anything once you close the icon at first. And then the commercial won't play in middle of movie. Ok
fans of asian horror movies

how lucky they are to be consumed by beauty while much of the world is consumed by war, hunger and poverty.
Bailey (3/27/2010 @ 4:10 pm)
Dark, strange and confusing
plop888 (3/27/2010 @ 5:17 pm)
I also thought the film was shot without enough lighting or whatever. The director was using darkness to underline the darkness of vanity. He forgot that we need to see what's happening. I'm a long-time student of yoga, & I don't think they portrayed this science [yes, it is a science] properly. Yoga means union in Sanskrit, ie: to be one with God. It has nothing at all to do with vanity, except to transcend it.
@Laine, for me, Divx works way better than Zshare. The picture & sound are better. It's all about bit-rate.
Thanks for posting.

great dark film .. quite confusing
Hikaru (3/27/2010 @ 9:10 pm)
I don't know why most of the people here say that this one was really good. I really hoped it would be okay.. but.. it wasnt. I'm kinda disappointed. I dont know what the movie was all about.. it was so damn boring and I really hated the nonsense screaming..wth? it really annoyed me, especially the end..what the hell happened? and again the piggy-like screaming o.o... well all in one I give it a 2 out of 10
Kim (3/27/2010 @ 9:59 pm)

Kathyleen (3/28/2010 @ 3:50 am)
Didn't do it for me. It buffed so many times too.
Meri (3/28/2010 @ 10:45 am)
I wasn't disappointed in this one nor was I bored at any point but it still wasn't an amazing movie. It could've been clearer and the ending could've been better but I don't know if it'd work so well if it was. Anyway, the movie was great, the idea was somewhat original.
hana (3/28/2010 @ 2:19 pm)
Thanks alot for all these movies admin, but zshare is horrible, and I can't view any of the movies on it. I've followed all your steps for fixing it, it just doesn't want to work. Next time please choose a better hosting website, I hate being dissapointed like this. Thanks.

I thought this Movie was very good.For you people complaining , what are you talking about? The movie plays fine, it looks fine oh and its free.I really liked the actress who played the girl with the pet mouse, she reminded me of the ginger girl that was in whispering corridors wishing stairs.

Really Nice movie.Korean Movies are the best.
darkness2013 (3/29/2010 @ 8:31 am)
you people don't get it. the screaming is the soul in agony. The Suffering.
at the end her soul was taken and was reborn thru the light at the end of the tunnel.she was reminded that she was that she was in a world of illusions made by the devil, showing the devils face on the poster. GREAT MOVIE!!!!THANKYOU!!!
someone (3/30/2010 @ 1:56 am)
AWW plz help the video won't play T-T
Inf (3/30/2010 @ 8:28 am)
Watch twice and still love it..It is going to be a while for a next asian horror.
Mustang (4/1/2010 @ 5:07 am)
Great movie, entertaining. what more.
mwahria (4/1/2010 @ 6:15 pm)
just so-so... it wasn't that non-sense at all.. the idea of the story was great.. and the lesson was very tangible.. the thing was that it was poorly done.. the lighting for example was poor and it wasn't too expressive.. it has failed to make heart-stopping scenes... the audience wasn't able to attach themselves in the movie...

but for the record, it was another interesting story.. the actresses were very pretty, Yoo-Jin especially.. as what I have interpreted.. I think it was like selling the soul in exchange of beauty. The desire for beauty made the women vulnerable that they've fallen preys to the devil. Why Kahn Min-Hi doesn't age? Because she preys on the souls of her 'students'. Maybe that's why Kim Sun hwa acts weird.. maybe because she lost her soul already.. lured her old friend Hyo-jung to the Hakwon for being so mean to her in the past..

The ending.. I think it's just for the purpose of hanging the ending... To say that Hyo-jung was wrong for thinking that she had already escaped the Hakwon..Evil Kahn Min-Hi still lives..

It was, after all, fun decoding the story.. there's still a lot to think about 6/10

Channy88 (4/3/2010 @ 3:49 am)
Annoying characters at times but this movie def motivated me to take up some yoga classes!!=)) 6/10
aznpryde (4/3/2010 @ 8:37 pm)
it doesn't work but is the movie really good
Rick (4/3/2010 @ 10:13 pm)

Trying to explain what I gathered from the ending. The Yoga Academy was basically a trap or ploy. The women came because they wanted more beauty than what they already had. Most women think that they are unattractive even if many find that they are attractive. So the Yoga academy was the perfect trap for women desiring more and lasting beauty. Now, it was a trap because the women didn't get what they expected. At the end while in the subway, we see the women who attended the academy. I believe that these are the women's bodies, but not carrying their souls. The women failed to realize the beauty of their own souls and basically got their souls removed from their bodies. They were focused too much on outward beauty than inward beauty. Remember "hamster girl"? Remember how much more prettier she was in the subway? That was the new her, but her body had a new soul, something darker. The main character (the t.v. personality) at the end was realizing (in horror) what had happened to the other girls. Remember, she saw them bloodied, butchered and so forth at the academy. Now she sees them in the subway looking beautiful (walking with that stiff, upright walk) and can't believe it. These girls were taken over by "The Goddess of Beauty". The posters in the subway of "The Main Image We Know As The Goddess" is shown to show that the main character will be haunted and that even though she escaped the Yoga Academy, she hasn't really esaped.

These are just my opinions and observations. Hope this helped.
MisterBoo (4/7/2010 @ 5:13 am)
Umm..this one's more of a self reflection for women. Not really a guy's cup of tea. Guys wouldn't be able to relate to this. On the plus side, thanks for the yoga moves. LOL

What the fuck just happened? I thought I was about to watch a movie...but I guess they don't make those in Korea. Instead, I sat for two hours watching a dark screen with flashes of girls walking through various rooms that have no business connecting with each other.

that was a 3/10
story was good in the beginning
some dark crap happened in the middle
and the end all just tangled up in the old "wthell story is messed"

only watch if u have nothing else to choose from. the scares dont make sense. not scary at all. i was falling asleep from all the lengthy suspense moments. theres just too many suspenseful moments that lead to nothingness.

Just checked the movie and it seems to be playing fine, make sure you have any ad blocking software on your browser turned off or maybe try using google chrome browser.I think zshare may of gone down for a hour or so as a few people have said about this error.Let me know if its ok now please.
CyreneQ (5/12/2010 @ 7:54 pm)
So that's how you become pretty. Who wants to sign up? lol

The movie was okay. Everyone had the same sounding scream - got a bit annoying. Like everyone said, it's very confusing in the end. I thought only one person can achieve beauty...why did everyone live in the end? What's the point of not breaking rules then?

I've watched the korean region 3 dvd. It is so much clearer than this. Much better lighting and quality makes the film so much better. I reccomend it to people with multi regional dvd players. Eugene, Cha Soo-yeon and Lee Young-jin are so beautiful! :D
face (6/5/2010 @ 3:13 am)
In some strange way, this movie affected me more than I thought. The kundalini is like new age, and most people believe that if the kundalini is reached, it leaves the body vulnerable to possession. I thought this movie was a great play on the religious psyche as well as the regular human mind. Great work, 9/10
I'm deeply disturbed!!!!!
aldo (6/8/2010 @ 6:22 am)

Bloodless (6/24/2010 @ 3:18 pm)
i think the ending is really sad because this movie shows what goes on in the women world, we girls torture ourselfs to be the perfect women, we are allways trying to be prettier, i mean even if we are drop dead gorgeous we only see the flaws, i loved this film even do it was really sad... moral of the story beuty comes and goes...

HadaObscuraENID (8/2/2010 @ 2:12 am)
First of all thank you for uploading ^^. (Thank you really very much for this site!)

About the movie: I’m afraid I agree with the people saying that is disappointing, not really scary, and I think I agree with *MayEdward*.
Although I couldn’t watch the last 10 minutes (lack of time I think, not problems with the player this time. I have some, but not as much).
Have you people watched “SUSUK”??? It’s a movie from Malaysia, from some years ago (I think it is here too, although I watched it in “YouTube”) and it’s the same idea: the horror and darkness about the price of beauty, selling your soul for beauty and fame and success, etc.
I found Susuk much more interesting, and I like it very much! (from the best Asian movies I have seen). To me Susuk is very excellent and very recommendable.
This one starts well, but I kind of imagined something different when I read the argument here so that’s why it was a little disappointing to me, but not as disappointing as The Cut or Shadows in the Palace (one of the worst movies I have ever seen).
Korean films were my favorite until I saw those 2 movies (The Cut and Shadows in the Palace) and some others that disappointed me too.
But some months ago I saw “Living death” and I liked it very much.(that movie gave me hopes about korean terror/films… like not everything is lost).

*About an explanation* for this movie, although I missed the last 10 minutes, for the comments I read, and because of the other many Korean films I have seen:
I think it is nothing more than a possession, as usual in Korean films.
The dead actress possesses the main character. To me that is really obvious when the ghost/devil says to her: “Now your soul will be vanished….” And then when the other lady says to her: “She will gain youth and you will gain beauty”. To me is obvious, her body is going to be possessed for the devil/ghost of the dead actress.
And she was possessing the lady who dies maybe (the lady dead by a car), so that’s why she tells her about the “yoga institute” for she can have more bodies/victims.
The spell and possession maybe have a short length, that’s why she kept recruiting girls, to find a new body.
(She has to keep looking for new bodies every now and then).
But is just a guess, I could be wrong.
And yes, obviously the screams / whispers / cries were the souls, all those trapped souls from the girls that didn’t achieve the ‘kundalini’ or whatever, etc. (all the other victims), but I found those screams too RANDOM, and even kind of annoying, and also boring after hearing so many times.
The idea of the movie was kind of interesting (price of beauty linking it to the yoga institute, Hinduism beliefs, etc.) but the story (the dead actress, the main character, etc.), the development, etc. … not much.

And it’s not original, I saw that in Susuk and I think is a story repeated many times (perhaps is a common idea /story repeated in many cultures), doesn’t even some fairy tales speak about that? Price of beauty, etcetera?
And novels, of course…
Dorian Gray? (but with the difference that he was a male! Not just “female” would sale their souls for eternal beauty/ eternal youth!)
Vampirism… etcetera.
P.S. To plop888: *Yoga DOES HAVE to do with vanity.* Maybe for you and for Buddhists / Hinduism it doesn’t (maybe the “true” yoga, the true sense of yoga), but it does. Mainly in rich or famous people (from what I have seen on TV or whatever) yoga is one ‘sport’ to keep healthy and beautiful, and thin, etc. etc. etc.
I think is very common in Hollywood for example. And regarding Asia, some weeks ago I knew about some korean singer that supposedly said she practice yoga and that’s her ‘secret’ to keep her figure and great body (she is very thin).

P.S.2 And yes, the food girl also reminded me of HaeJu from Wishing Stairs. (HaeJu is one of my fav. characters in Yeogo Goedam saga).
And the "most pretty" girl (the one who wanted to look herself in the mirror I think) reminded me of SoHee the girl who dies in Wishing Stairs too.

Sorry for my bad english.

I think I would be enchanted to have people like MayEdward (May and Edward?) in my forum… T___T only that it’s in spanish, because I’m a spanish speaker… u_u
