I watched this movie years ago and completely forgot about it. Once it started, it looked so similar to something I'd watched before and alas by the end of the movie I remembered everything. Since i watched it so long ago and obviously I'd forgotten most of it, it was nice to experience the whole thing yet again. I didn't even realize my now favorite actors were in the movie.
The story read more seems kind of simple and straight to the point but I think the back story is what truly carried it because it is one plot twist you definitely don't see coming. Throughout the movie you're just left wondering "why". The acting was so marvelous I commend Lee Min Ki especially because he portrayed his character the best in my opinion. Every role complemented each other no-one was outshining another which made it seem much more realistic.
I don't remember the music honestly I was too busy trying to figure out the end game.
Seeing as technically I unintentionally re-watched it, I wouldn't mind watching it again with someone. I'm a huge fan of psychological dramas and movies. Things that make you think like "damn what could I have possibly done if I were in that situation?"
I definitely recommend this movie the acting is superb the story is simple but complex in its own way and it really makes you question yourself and how you would react to certain situations. But I have to say for me personally by the end of it.....................i think they deserved everything they got.

I decided watching this movie because of Lee Min Ki and Shin Min Ah...they were the only ones I knew from the cast list.I wasn't expecting much.

The STORY isn't something new...some unbeliveble survival contest with 8 people who love money or need it desperately.I really didn't think much of it...just a movie so I an make time move faster.
This is were The CAST enters.The acting was great in my opinion.Park read more Hee Soon was amazing....he made me tremble for 55 minutes.The actors did a great thing in entering their characters feelings and emotions and I was really caught in Lee Min Ki and Jung Yu Mi relethionship.It was so twisted and heartbreaking...once again you discover how important your own life is.
The MUSIC was nothing special...I barely remember it...but this kind of film doesn't need movie because the scenes are strange and complicated enough.So I really didn't need any kind of music to enjoy it.
I would totally REWATCH this movie!It was so interesting and emotional that I'm sure I won't get bored from it.

This movie tells a story that uncoveres the fact that anyone, I mean ANYONE, can turn crazy because of things that happened in his life.
I can't say that this is one of my favorite movies but I can assure you that is worth watching...if you want something phisological and action packed.

It has that darker tone even though This one is more lighter than A Million.

    Hey ... In this movie 2 times they mentioned about a 'green color dry nut'... but until the end there is no explanation or connection.
    Does any one know ?

      it's what people call bystander behaviour, as no one was willing to take the first step, no one helped also known as difusion of responibility. The people dont want to be harmed themselves so would rather just do nothing.

      This is quite bad in China as kind hearted people who do go and help those in need they, themselves are then blamed for causing the accidents "if it wasnt you why are you helping" attitude and its sickening - if an old lady fell over you can't even go help her cause then you'd be blamed for it. Of course this isnt everyone, can't generalise to the whole population but it does happen often.
