This is not a pretty story, this will let your heart sink.

This movie amazed me, the trailer looked good and the movie delivered it! The story isn't unique but they worked it out greatly. It kept my attention from start untill finish and I was blown away. Every minute in this movie will make your heart sink deeper.
The acting was amazing, the mother (kim hye soo) delivered it and acted read more top notch! She convinced me and did a splendid job. Also the rest of the cast were brilliant.
The music was perfect and fitted every scene.
I would rewatch this movie with friends, I really enjoyed it

Watch this if you like action, a good storyline and great acting.
Skip this if you want romance and don't like blood.

This movie for me is almost flawless, the story is showing us how's the life of a girl when everything goes wrong.
With this movie you won't waste your time it lets you with a weird mood, maybe you're confused, sad and overall a bittersweet ending, nothing is perfect just life as life it is.
If you're expecting romance or a comedy you're in the wrong place so go and search other, read more this isn't a light movie it's kind of heavy in some aspects but I don't regret watching it, very good movie.

The acting of the movie is perfect I mean everyone was so good and I wanted to watch this for Park Bo Gum but when I saw Kim Hye Soo I was blown away she has been always one of the best korean actress in her range but wow just wow for me this was almost her best role, Kim Go Eun keeps being the actress which I keep looking for. The rest was great as usual but the funny part is that I think someone watched Park Bo Gum and Go Gyeon Pyo and thought, omg let's put them in reply 1988.

The music well it fits the movie nothing outstanding.

Rewatch value it's a movie you can rewatch and I will with my dad when someone subs this to spanish or I'll do it myself, well this isn't the kind of movie to watch if you're bored.

If you liked Hwayi you will love this movie, kind of similar just that this movie is with female leads and hwayi is more about a boy.

Both stories are full of blood and crime that involves childrens, also both have the same cult action atmosphere.
Recommended by Belmani
- Both movies are about kids being raised in a bad environment

- both children kill

- there is lots of blood

Hwayi is a little bit more on the "child" side with the monster that Hwayi sees, while on the other hand it is more serious in China Town. But in the end both movies are perf. :)

    8/10. Only because this kind of movie isnt really my style. Still i cant deny that this is a great movie. The storyline, although hopeless and depressing, was good. The cinematography also matched it perfectly. The acting was superb. This movie really showed KGE's versatility as an actor. And of course, we have Bo Gum as a bonus. ;)

    Psychological, powerful movie! Really great acting and hits you right in the feelz. Great complex relationships between the characters and very human understanding of life and the underground world. Highly suggested. Did I mention the acting?

    I don't know what to say about this movie. It didn't inspire me to be anything but just made me melancholic. It was a definite ending, there is really nothing you could do for her to relieve her of her situation. Rather, it was more of a glimpse into her vantablack world. Great cast, overall.

    Started just to "stalk" Kim Go Eun and see all her works, since she was so charming in CITT & currently Goblin. I've only watched light rom-com dramas, all her other works are so out of my comfort zone, that I was kinda hesitant at first. Surprisingly, I actually enjoyed watching this. Reading the comments and reviews may scared you. Though imo, it wasn't as horrid as I thought. Just really, really sad.

    This was... awesome. And horrible. And I gave it a 10 while I wanted to give it a 1. My poor heart.

    I started watching this because I wanna see more of Park Bo Gum, but this ended up reminding me of my love for Kim Go Eun. She really is a great actress, no doubt.
    And so as the other actors in this movie. Casting was really great.
    And it has a very realistic ending. I actually didn't know what to feel after watching it. This is one of those movies which would make me lie down and ponder about life after completing it.

    Too gruesome for me. Watched only halfway.
