Tae Gun Ho is the best collection agent in his firm, admired by his colleagues and dreaded by those he visits. He’s known for gathering his debts by any means necessary, and keeps a cattle prod handy while on the job. Following a series of unexpected fainting spells, Tae is told by a doctor that he has liver cancer, and would need a transplant to have any chance of surviving beyond three months. And so he puts his professional skills to work, setting out to collect a different sort of debt by tracking down the recipients of organs donated by his late son. First among his sources for a liver is Cha Ha Yeon, a beguiling fraudster with a long list of enemies. Locating Cha turns out to be easy, since she’s about to be released from prison. The deal she proposes, however, which includes getting even with the sleazy crime boss who set her up, jeopardizes Tae’s future. He struggles desperately to keep Cha, and her liver, safe until the transplant — even while Cha has other plans. Edit Translation

I like crime drama movies but ones that usually involve romance. I was under the impression that Countdown would be that type of movie...

The plot was fast paced and kept me engaged in what was going on. Its pretty much just watching how the main male character tries to get this crazy con woman to the hospital so he can get his liver transplant (with her as a donator) but then all these things keep getting in the way (some crazy gangsters chasing after them and also a bigtime conman). It kind of seems like a good time right? Well by the end, the story just takes a on a more serious tone and leaves us on a bittersweet note.

One thing I thought the writers did well with, was the character development of the main female character. She was as awful as a conwoman can be but by the experience she has with the main male character, she changes little by little becoming more human. With that being said, I thought the acting was okay by the leads but they didnt impress me enough that I'll remember their characters or anything.

Overall this is good for a one time watch if you like crime drama movies.
