One summer, Yo-won fails her major and just gets fired from her part-time job, while Min-sun, an aspiring actress, gets humiliated in all kinds of ways by her academic advisor. Tired of the usual obvious advice people give, they drop everything and leave on a trip to Gangleung. But, then they discover a couple of revolvers in their borrowed car - the two revolvers that Detective Kim, from the Violent Crimes Division, and Nalchi, a middle boss in the organization, lost while gambling. The girls assume the guns are fake and pull the trigger - and the window shield goes out. From then on, their plans go awry and the two girls keep getting swept up into strange events. They meet up with Young-mi, a country tearoom waitress who has a complex about her looks, and Jin-a, who dreams of revenging herself on the guy who toyed with her and led her on. When these girls, attracted by the revolvers, get together, events snowball out of control. Written by
I was a little leery when I found out the dvd had been released only four months after the movies theater run, but the movie isnt bad. Its basically your typical womens road comedy, in this case involving 4 korean women who through circumstance come into possession of two guns, become robbers, and are chased by gangsters while becoming friends and working thru personal issues. The humor is light and broad, but viewers might be put off by some violence which is a bit harsh for this type of movie, though for me watching the goofy gangsters smacking each other around was fun (as well as their verbal banter- they pretty much steal the movie from the leads). I recommend horror movie fans check out Kim Min-Sun and Lee Young-Jin (two of the actresses in this movie) in the schoolgirl ghost story Memento Mori.
