Worth watching!

All right!Another really good Korean movie! The English subs as usual took a while to be released,so unfortunately a lot of people had to wait.I heard a lot online about people watching it anyway,and pretty much getting the point of it,but in my opinion one should wait for the subs.There's a lot of hilarious banter! Especially with the male lead!The female lead was breathtakingly beautiful!The story was mysteriously interesting enough to keep me hooked till the end. With enough twists to make you want the "good-guy" to come out on top.My GOD! Korean cinema has an amazing knack for storytelling unlike anything else,yet unique to themselves,and that's why I've become hooked on it!When a new one is released I obsessively check every day till I can see the next one.For anyone interested-Watch it,give it a chance,and you just might enjoy!
