The Right Eye is a scary Korean urban legend about a young woman who receives a cornea transplant. They say this is the urban legend that inspired the horror movie “The Eye”.
There was a young woman in Korea who was blind in one eye. Eventually, she received a cornea transplant. The operation was a success and she was released from hospital.
However, a week later, she stopped going to work. Her friends couldn’t get in touch with her. When her parents called, she didn’t answer her phone.
Eventually, her parents got worried and went to her house. They knocked on the door but there was no reply. They called the police and they broke down the door.
They found the young woman lying on the floor in a pool of blood. She had sliced her own wrists open and bled to death. Her parents were devastated. They couldn’t understand why their daughter would take her own life.
The police noticed that all of the mirrors in the house had been smashed. All of the reflective surfaces in the house had been covered as well.
When they came across the young womans diary, they found something strange scrawled on the last pages. Over and over, she had written:
“My right eye is staring at me, my right eye is staring at me, my right eye is staring at me, my right eye is staring at me…”
