The Korean is a movie that requires attention to what is said, action of characters and above all focus. If you have an attention spam of a gnat, don't watch this movie. If you are person who enjoys reading mysteries or fiction books then you will find the Korean interesting. If you are a person who likes things in black and white, clear cut no room for gray areas then Korean is not for you. The use of going back into time is a good tool to explain "nothing is what is seems." There is one scene where the plot seems to drag a little and you wonder if the Director could have shot the scene different. However overall, a good movie, one that on a lazy Sunday or Saturday, watch and enjoy.
