Is about what you would expect from the blob on the back explaining it as Korea's Charlie's Angels. Lots of stupid stuff, some of it funny, some of it awesome, all of it weird.
The tone of the movie is inconsistent and switches randomly from very silly to trying to be dark. The plot convoluted, poorly explained and paced, something the characters even comment on and try to explain to each other, though it still doesn't help the audience.
The movie is also very sexist, though not objectifying like the American Charlie's Angels, but instead applying Asian stereotypes to the girls making them talk about boys, like shopping, jewelry, act air-headed and giggle a lot.
It is a trope-fest, and is only for people enjoying seeing countless references to other better movies, and every trope imaginable invoked and abused. Fun, if you are into that kind of movie.
