But one day, to the surprise of his colleagues and his enemies, he suddenly decides to quit his job for a woman (Lee Mi Yeon). Seen as the ultimatebetrayal, Hyung Do is immediately hunted down by his former employers. Will he be able to escape with his life, much less with his love? (Souce: Hancinema)

Again, I just love So Ji Sub in these types of movies! He does badass so well! I know people want him to do romances but I want him to do what makes him happy because he does this type so well. This is not for the faint at heart because it is about a group of contract killers so there is a lot of blood and killing. I enjoyed from start to finish! What a ride! My man in action again!

This movie is sleek and smooth, very polished from all ends, compact, simple and slow. It's hard to find anything to complain about, but there is nothing much to praise either. It's not a great movie, but it isn't a bad movie either. This is a good choice when you want to watch something entertaining, with hints of mystery and tragedy but nothing too serious. A Company Man is vague.

This is a story about a man and only about him, strictly from his perspective. It's as if the movie was written for So Ji Sub and if you are his fan this is a must see. But then again, if the main actor was someone else I would say the same thing. There is nothing special about the plot, but it's well thought with no holes or loose ends, the script and directing are flawless, acting is great too. There are no over the top bloody fighting scenes, no gore, no bloodbaths. Alongside the action there is a wonderful love story, it brings a certain balance.

The ending reminds me of a computer game, that's when I realized that this movie is soulless. It didn't stir any emotions in me, the plot is predictable and if you have watched enough Korean gangster movies you will guess the plot twist too. But as mentioned before, acting and scenery are superb so it's still worth watching just for the fun.
