This movie has actually a really great story. When I read the synopsis i really wanted to watch this. Especially since it is very hard to get an english version of the webcomic this movie is based on. But after I did see the movie I came to the conclusion that I kind of liked this movie with its heroes and the villain and their interaction but on the other side I kind of didn't. Maybe because I expected more. This more isn't about the story here, don't get me wrong. I kind of feel cheated in a way I don't feel that often. I feel like I didn't see all, like I just stand in front of a dark window desperately pressing my face on the glass with my hands trying to not let any light in so that I can see better, see more. I have a feeling that this story had very much more to tell.


This movie concentrated on the heroine who wanted to get revenge for the murder of her family. The portrayal of her desperation to get the murderer was well done by Kim Sun Ah. I liked her really much and understood her desperation. I could identify with her. On the other hand there was the villain who was a real creep. He gave me the shivers and I certainly hope I will never ever meet someone like that (actually I hope such a guy will never ever exist).
To get the villain the heroine needs help because she is sitting in a wheelchair and that makes it difficult to chase after a perfectly healthy young man. That is when the Five are formed. 3 men and 1 women who help the heroine to get the murderer in exchange for the heroines organs. Each team member does have someone who urgently needs an organ transplant. It is a situation where you will get a live if you offer another. The movie gives us to every character an introduction. So that you can actually see their loved ones and understand their desperation.
In this situation obviously their must be some conflicts and the movie shows us glimpses of those. But overall it is mainly about the chase.

And I think that is actually the point that made this movie for me not a great movie. it is still good. Thrilling and entertaining. But I actually would have wanted to see more of the conflicts in the group. I would have liked it if the process of bonding between the heroine and the 4 team members who only want her organs was shown in more detail. I know what you will say: to show that in a 2 hour movie is just wishfull thinking. The time girl, look at the time. And you're right. That is why i hereby declare that I will root for more screen time in form of a drama series. Where all of the characters can shine and enter our heart on an emotionally level. I really do hope this takes place because I really want to know more about The Five.

Considering my wanting of getting more of the story maybe you shoud give this movie a try. It may not be perfect but it is certainly a good movie.

I was waiting from along time to watch another work for my favorite actress at all "Kim Sun Ah" , and I can't believe the coincidence when I found the raw for this great movie ..

- First of all the "OST" : is something I'm sure that you w'll love.
- The second is the "Cast & The Acting " : all the characters in the movie are real , my point is that you can easily feel them and feel there emotions , the characters in the movie are so simple , they only think in a way to save the people they love's and live with them in happiness , and that happened after they meat the main role "Eun Ah - Kim Sun Ah" and crosses with "Oh Jae Uk - Ohn Joo Wan"
- The third is the "Story" : which was written in genius way make you stay focus on the screen from the first second until the last one.

when the staff list beginning I came to MDL to but the movie on "My FV list" and I give it 10 of 10 ~
And for those reason you w'll watch the movie again and again ..
