I'm actually Korean but write this opinion without my nationality. I watched this impressive movie and even though my English isn't good enough trying to comment about this because this movie rated so low. Do not believe the rate. I don't know why this movie rated so low. Actor and actresses plays really well and story also really good. Watch this movie first and then feel this sad movie, Ziyi Zhang's act was so amazing. And she is so beautiful in the movie. Dong-gun Jang's act also really good except that he plays as playboy(花花公子) :( It's Chinese movie but directed by Korean. The collaboration seems really good. I hope this kind of movie comes out more and more.
