An Introduction To The Witch Part 1: The Subversion

Her foster mother has dementia, and she herself suffers from severe episodes of migraines. Ja-Yoon lands in a national singing contest during her search for money and hopes she receives some fortune through it.
During the contest, she showcases her special telekinetic talent by levitating the microphone. This act immediately grabs the attention of Dr. Baek and Mr. Choi who formerly thought Ja-Yoon must have died in the lab accident.
During the second contest, she escapes an abduction led by Dr. Baek’s men and successfully flees to her home. Meanwhile, she is again attacked by Dr. Baek’s people who keep her foster parents as hostages and ask her to surrender.
Helpless, she gives herself to the armed men to save her parents but her emotions awaken her superpowers and she releases herself from them with supreme speed and power. The situation leaves her in awe because she herself was unaware of her powers. After that, she decides to go to Dr. Baek who is another character in the movie.

She also learns that she has some killing disease which has shortened her lifespan. She is kept on medications that slow down her symptoms.
Meanwhile, she breaks out of the lab one more time and decides to get herself examined by the doctor. She learns that she needs a bone marrow transplant which compels her to meet with Dr. Baek again.
In another attempt to escape the laboratory, she kills Mr. Choi and Dr. Baeks gets killed due to an accident.
