There was nothing in the genres, trailer or summary that could have prepared me for the amount of emotions that came with this movie. The storyline is probably not going to be what you expect it to (if you've only watched the trailer). You know those movies and dramas that leave a mark? The ones where years later you've kind of forgotten most of the storyline but you still cant forget about certain scenes or the over all feel it gave you? This is one of those.

Even though I felt that it was lacking in something on the surface, that I couldn't quite pinpoint, it still had a lot of depth and talent in pulling the viewers heartstrings. The three main actors all did an amazing job which made the story more believable and worth remembering. Over all, it has that dark atmosphere running through almost the entire movie and even though it's more slow paced than the trailer made it out to be, it is definitely worth your time and it will most likely leave you wanting to re-watch it later on (or at least with a craving to recommend it to everyone you know).

Another day, another gritty Korean thriller, this time with friendships involved. I enjoy this genre that Korean cinema seems to do really well.

The narrative does keep to its intended track pretty safely - the antagonizing event strikes at a pretty predictable spot in the movie and the characters crack when they're expected to. But as is reflected in the story, the deviant streak that brews under the surface and suddenly erupts still takes you by surprise.

Where this movie excels is the casting - I think the casting reflected the characters and the actors' respective inclinations very well.

A pretty entertaining movie that leaves you with a little something to think about, but it does evaporate pretty quickly.
