Compare with another Korean action film, I think this film is better than older. The thing give me the most attention is the main actor emotion and his acting. But I think, the director did not want to put all their attention on the main character but rather focus to doctor. So the main actor doesn't have many scenes. The best scene of main actor as I remember is when he take infor from gang and when he came from outside police station (Really I've looking for more action scene this time, but it was not.

Any way I'm looking for more and more tried from Korean action movie like this or better.
