A Korean Skyfall - Simply Awesome
7 August 2013 | by (UAE) – See all my reviews

This is one of the best movie I have seen in recent years and I don't think it is less than Skyfall..... specially the cinematography is awesome and special effects are so amazing that we see rarely and only in big production house movies.

The main characters are smart and beautiful.. and Director didn't forget to put an emotional touch of unspoken love in the movie.... the background music is impressive and go along with situations and action sequences and at several points it charge you specially towards the ending.

Movie will keep you entertained and busy.. with duration of around 2 hours, you won't feel losing interest at any point.

Above all, the Director Mr. Seung-wan Ryoo really knew the art of making a true entertainer.

I have become a true fan of characters and of course South Korean Cinema too!
