My movie review:
Incredible, I never expected to see such a movie. Just took it for granted as a thriller in the first place, while it s funny, it s tear jerking sometime, it s just good, very good actually. the queer factor development between two leading actors is slow, but convincingly stable and efficient. Song Kang-Ho is amazing as always, Gang Dong-Won just gave a better shot than he s in “Psychic”. I definitely will give it a 9.4 rank.
