As a hardcore Starlight, I watched this movie for one reason: Han Sanghyuk starred in it. So I went into watching the movie thinking to myself, "I wonder how much airtime Hyuk will get, and if watching this will even be worth it." Little did I know that this would end up being one of the best movies I've watched thus far!

The story line was great to begin with; humorous and read more playful, but it still contained just enough amount of seriousness that kept you interested and in pace with the movie. It never seemed to slow down for too long, or get boring or draggy, which is something I often times encounter while trying to watch something.

The acting was also spectacular from all characters. The antagonist, protagonist, the secondary characters, the high schoolers, everyone fit well in their character and delivered their part well.

The music, although not something I really paid attention to during the movie as I was too captivated watching what the characters were doing, seemed to fit well enough and further enhanced the scene it was placed in.

Overall, I say well done for this production. I could easily watch this again and love it just as much as the first time. :)

You noticed that on the posters they used a Samsung phone, but in the movie the phone that was stolen was an IPhone !?
"Catch Him to Survive" is fun, without many action scenes, what would seem to be something simple to recover ends up complicating more and more, the cast is to be congratulated, the antagonist, protagonist, the secondary characters, the high school students , All fit well in his character, read more actuantes gave life to the script.
The story despite being simple, was very well written, humorous and with the right dose of seriousness that kept him interested and in pace with the film.
Soundtrack was in short according to the scenes, perhaps a slight insignificant loss in certain scenes that did not harmonize that much. Overall, a medium film, the story was the downside, although well written is simple.

Both are short, humorous dramas that star rowdy high school students getting into trouble due to their over-confidence.

    I don't think it was that funny, I think Won Tae's gang were irritating
