Korean dark comedy that isn't very entertaining, but has some clever scenarios which drives this movie
11 September 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie was pretty dull and the Korean humor in this didn't really work for me most of the time. But I give it props for having few clever scenarios which put a grin on my face. The thing is despite the premise sounding a bit interesting and all, although it has been done before just wasn't executed in a way where it's entertaining to watch. The main characters are not likable, just a bit on the crazy side. In fact almost none of the characters are likable. The movie is almost 2 hours long but shortening it to a hour and a half would have done the movie better. The main thing that is driving this movie is the few clever scenarios. The main thing that kept me watching was the wondering of how it was all going to end, the last 30 minutes sort of picks up and gives off few messages. Not a good dark comedy, but probably worth at least one watch.

5.8/10
