Stripes on Friday ran a story titled, "USFK morgue incident inspired S. Korean horror movie" that outlines the way that the movie "The Host" is based on a real-life pollution case whose convicted perpetrator remains in his old job here.

The film attributes the birth of a mutant monster in the Han River to chemicals dumped by U.S. Forces Korea personnel, a McGuffin some interpret as anti-American

Fourteen days after it opened, "The Host" has now been seen by 7.63 million people and is setting new standards for the Korean film industrychosun
