Story: The story itself isn't what originally drew me to this movie. I just finished 'The King of Dramas', and after falling in love with Kim Myung Min's acting in that, I was eager to watch this when I saw it on Netflix. But while I was watching it, I was pleasantly surprised at how much I was enjoying it. It wasn't what I'd call a fantastic movie, but it managed to keep me glued to my screen the whole time. I loved how each character had their own little backstory and how they all seemed have a way of connecting with each other's.

One thing I really enjoyed about this movie was the twists. Some were incredibly predictable, and some were actually kind of surprising. It was a nice switch to watch something that wasn't totally predictable for once.

Acting/Cast: As I said, I recently discovered how much I love Kim Myung Min's acting, and this movie was no different. He didn't really have as much screen time as I was expecting since he was the male lead, but when he was on screen, he was impressive.

I'd seen Son Ye Jin in a couple of things before this, and while I wasn't really enjoying her acting in those, I loved her acting in this. She had this constant air of mystery and sexiness, and it was amazing.

As for the cast as a whole, I loved it. I really enjoyed the chemistry going on between them.

Music: I don't remember any music from this movie. I'm not sure if music would've made it better or if the lack of music was nicer, so I just scored it in the middle.

Rewatch Value: I could definitely see myself watching this movie again.

Overall: Overall, even though it wasn't totally fantastic, I really liked the movie. If there's one thing South Korea is good at, it's making me bawl while watching a movie about gangs.

The movie is ,in my opinion, good. I am glad that i watched it, but this one time is more then enough. Also when i watched it i didn’t really understand al of it, because of that the story line was a bit lost.
Sometimes you will certainly think: that is a little bit too coincidental! But the actors brings it so that it is credible. That is a really strong point of the movie. Also a very good choice of music makes it a very good movie. The action scenes are unbelievable good. With al the knives.
the police was a bit odd in the beginning. It was like they were "the bad guys" ! maybe it was (or is) in Korea just how it goes!? hope notXD also when you are looking for a
“feel-good”movie, then this is not the movie that you are looking for.
All in all it's a fun movie to watch once?.
