a BARUNSON E&A production

This book recounts my conversations

with Su-rin over the past 3 months.

Su-rin helped the suspect in the

'Hwano Island Kidnapping' to escape.


Rage spread over the island

and attacked the child.


In this book I will tell

the unfiltered story of Su-rin.

I sincerely hope this might help you

to understand her at least a bit.

From the preface of VANISHING TIME

by MIN Kyung-hee, child psychiatrist

Do you really need to shoot it?


Are you worried

I'll show it to someone?

Don't worry.

It's only for me.

I just don't want to miss

a word you say.

I've got a bad memory.

That's why.

I used to...

live alone with my mom.

When I was in 4th grade,

mom got married,

and passed away soon after.

Since then, I've been

living alone with him.

After summer vacation

in 6th grade,

we moved here

because of his work.


This is Oh Su-rin,

who just transferred.

She's new to this island

so be nice to her, okay?

Yes, ma'am.

Oh Su-rin!

Oh Su-rin!

I'm not Oh!

I'm Park Su-rin.

I'm on the night shift from today.

Call if you need anything.

Five, four, three...

two, one.


Too many things happened at once.

50 I wanted to run away.

Ways to get into another world

I wanted to be anywhere but here.

I had out-of-body experiences.

Practice helps you get better.

You're amazing!

I always failed. T. If you turn off the water

in the restroom...

She's strange.

- What's a worm hole?

- Who cares?

That's when I met Sung-min.



Your shoelace is undone.

You're the new student in Class 1?

Oh... I'm in Class 2.

I'm Yeo Sung-min.

- Do you live here?

- Yeah.

- Then are you an orphan?

- Huh?

Why do you ask?


Recently there have been accidents

near Tunnel construction site.

Explosions have caused

dangerous things to happen

such as collapsed pigsties or

flying stones.

So keep away from the site.

That out-of-body experience on her blog.

I did it.

- Go to hell.

- Don't lie.


When I opened my eyes,

I saw myself sleeping.

Then what did you do?

I went flying.

Here and there.

This prick said he saw you puffing.

What? You blockhead.

He said he was out-of-body

after reading your blog.

That's all bullshit.

I made it up.

What's with her?

- She seems angry.

- Maybe because of you.

Why are you following me?

I'm out of my body.

I'm out of my body.

Out of my body...

This is stage one, isn't it?

I wasn't supposed to

be able to move...

but I could move my fingers.

So I raised my arm.

Then my arm

came out of my body

and I was floating!

You were just dreaming.

No, when you dream,

you have no control.

But then I thought of flying

and I really flew!

How long did it take you

to succeed?

About a week?

That's ridiculous.

I tried so hard but always failed.

That's because you didn't believe.

Believing strongly you can do it.

That matters most.

I read your whole blog.

Why don't we try it?

Inviting the guest.


You made all these?

Yeah, memorize them

all before we start.

I'm ready


Inviting the guest

this afternoon

Don't say you're scared

and run away


Is it here?

The ghost?

- Why? You scared?

- No.

But do we really have to

go through here?

If we open the front door,

we might run into the ghost.

Anybody in?

Have you met my mother?

Did it answer?

Let's trade.

Read mine first.

Let me grow to 6ft.

Earn $10 million before age 30

to live off the interest.

What the heck?

I said to write a question!

- Can't I make a wish?
