The themes covered are pretty cliched, to be honest. It is based on the true story of the Korean researcher who falsified his research results on stem cells, but to avoid being sued for copyright, it is merely inspired by the true story.

I was expecting a movie that would perhaps be more reflective or insightful about what allowed the researcher to deceive Korea and the rest of the world for so many years, but I guess the focus of the movie was really on the whistleblower himself, and his internal struggles with revealing the truth.

Park Hae Il impressed me with his doggedly determined character. I myself watched it for Yoo Yeon Seok, but I wasn't that impressed by him either, regardless of the fact that he was a secondary character to Park Hae Il's PD character.

On the whole, it is an exciting thriller but I was disappointed by it.

As a big Yoo Yeon Seok fan, I was very much looking forward to watching this.

I honestly got very bored and couldn't even finish it. Was I expecting something more "thrilling" than what it was? Probably.

I really wanted to enjoy it.

The disappointment is real.
