The covered and the found.
12 September 2000 | by (London, UK) – See all my reviews

This movie has been looked away for many years because of Korean Audiences' ignorance. I firmly assert that this movie could be the most bizarre and flawless over the Korean film's history. We can find easily the features of Kim. For example, Almost lines are made up of a literary style. However it looks very seriously intended.
