As many other people who like kpop, this movie also caught my attention because Dongho is a part of the cast. I didn't know much about the plot when I clicked on the title of the teaser, so I didn't really know what to actually expect. It surprised me, in the best way 'surprise' can be taken. I think I can note that I would've watched this movie even if Dongho wouldn't read more have taken part in it. So, after I found it, I immediately started to watch it.

Amazing movie. According to the fact that I don't watch other movies like this on a daily basis (the genre stands pretty far away from my taste, but that's probably going to change from now on), I think it's a huge word for me to state that it's amazing, but it really is. Even though I didn't really understand all the words, just a few that I've learned from watching other films, dramas or variety shows, it really affected me emotionally. I teared up several times while watching it and it made me think a few things over, causing me to hug my mother a few minutes after it ended.

The story is really sad and it's terrifying to know that these situations happened in real life, not only once or twice. The cast is another thing; you can clearly see who's a senior to who. I think I can point it out that the best actor or actress in this movie is Yoo Sun. It's incredible how much emotion she brings to her character. As for the main person who lead me to this movie, Dongho, I'm also satisfied. A bit of practice and he's going to turn out an incredible actor, I'm telling you. The music gave me chills several times during the film, especially the intense piano sounds and such.

Overall, I think this is way far the best film of 2012, and not only in Korea.

I originally watched this movie because I saw that Dongho was taking part in it... but after watching it I can not believe how phenomenal the film was...
Firstly, the story line was not how I expected it to be, I truly felt the connection between the mother and her daughter. I almost felt as though I was in her situation and I could feel her pain... the story line was truly read more amazing.
Secondly, the acting standard was truly of the highest. The mother was truly one of the best actors I have probably watched, I mean I actually felt the woman's pain. The bad guys seriously I've never actually hated a character as much as these. I even felt connected with the cop. THAT'S HOW GOOD THIS FILM IS!!!
Lastly, I would watch it again because it was a master piece, and now is one of my favourites! I recommend it to EVERYONE.

    might contain spoiler

    but I didn't want to hide it since its an important issue

    This movie was really sad and its honestly terrifying tht all this is reality.
    It really made me think bout what a cruel injustice is happening in the world and this makes me sick. I hope the law in Korea in everywhere else gets adjusted. Rape is nothing tht can be forgiven and although I recognize her mums actions to be wrong but in all her helplessnes she doesn't know wht do to and I just can't imagine all the pain and suffering the victim has to go trough aswell as the victims families.
    The movie did an amazing job in raising the sensibility towards the unjustice of rape cases and raised the awareness of what is reality.
    Its nothing tht should be regared with just one thought alone but with deeper and real understanding.
    truly a masterpiece

      I gave it 6. It wasn't as good as I expected it to be honestly.

    it's a good movie; very educational in a way that it makes us aware that sexual assaults by minors are getting higher every year, and that this movie shows how parents especially mothers cope when their child becomes a victim of rape..i recommend this on film showings on schools to inform teenagers of what's happening now..
