After saw this movie more than 3 times, I can really tell that I fall in love with it.
I really like the historical dramas/movies, so I really enjoy him.
The story is original with swindling and thieving !

The main characters are very cool ! I think Yoo Seung Ho (Kim Seon Dal) suit so well his character, and Go Chang Seok (Bo Won) was so hilarous ! The chemistry between read more them was really great.
And "Gyon" was an very cute,adorable and cheerful character.
There acting was so great and the character are totally lovable!

It was an beautiful story with funny, serious and sad moments.
So, if you want had a good time go watch him!

    This was such a good, fun and interesting movie. Never boring. I wish it was a drama! Good actors and good storyline. I was apprehensive about the ending at the end--surprising but perfect! Rated it 8.7

    Seungho proved once again his versatility as an actor! This one was a better role than the magician one. Loved it

    I usually prefer when there is romance involved in a movie/drama, but I really loved this one. Time passed so fast and whithout realising it was almost the end. The cast did also a great job. This one is a great weekend movie
