A smuggling story about betrayal, friendship, and justice

As the title goes, it's a story about smuggling. But more so, it's a story about betrayal, friendship, and justice. The story was well-written and some scenes can be improved but all in all, I can say this is a good watch. Could have been better but definitely not a waste of your time.

Around 30-40 minutes into the movie, I was ready to quit watching. But I can't believe that an all-star-cast will just have a nonsense movie. So I persevered. Around 20-30 minutes after the hour, it gets exciting. As the American saying goes, now we're cooking gas lol. It might be a slow start but it really gave a satisfying ending. We already know that the cast are high-caliber actors and actresses so their performance is to a T. The story is well-made. The first part was a bit slow but it might have been caused by poor English subtitles as well. Good thing I know a Korean or two so I was able to persevere lol.

The slow start also made me not expect any big twists. But fortunately it did. And surprisingly, things turned out really well. The diving scenes were really majestic. And the fighting scenes are good. What more can you expect from Zo In Sung? Though I wished they had made more fighting scenes.

My wish now is to see Yeom Jung Ah and Zo In Sung work together in a project where they interact more, which, unfortunately, this film didn't give.

An entertaining show abt smuggling..

I love Kim hye soo and I love everything she is in... She has capability of making a show worth watching.....
As you can predict from the star cast, the acting part was not lacking in any way...
The story may seem a bit lacking for the first 10- 20 minutes but but but don't quit.. keep watching....
Omg this was such a fun show... The ending was really satisfying..
I don't really wanna say anymore coz tht would be giving out spoiler.
But I DEFINITELY RECOMMEND this.
Worth watching
