At first glance, Blessedness: Monsters and Specters feels complicated and difficult, and not easy to summarize. Since the plot unfolds from concept to concept instead of story or emotion, it feels foreign. It is hard to connect the dots of the three chapters – monsters, specters, and blessedness. Narrations with prophetic phrases or abstruse contents frequent, and scenes of fantasy or unreality, sometimes even stage shots emerge to disturb the narrative. Thethree main characters in this film, Seong Sim, Eun Su, and Seong Cheol are helpless beings in front of reality. Seong Sim and Eun Su are gay lovers rejected by this society and their love for each other have failed.
