A Second Chance....
3 August 2012 | by (India) – See all my reviews

This one should work for all who are accustomed to Korean crime dramas. They are often considered to be heavy handed , but to be honest that has almost always worked for me somehow , specially because of the genuine performances by the main characters involved.

The story is simple. Its about an ex gangster who is free from prison after serving ten years. All he wants is a second chance in life. A chance for a little bit of happiness and peace for the ones he loves.

But a constant threat always looms over his family and threatens to awaken the demon inside him.

(Decided to write this short review seeing there was just one other seriously misleading review for this genuinely decent movie)
