Storyline

In-hong is drafted into the army by force to fight in China during the Qing Dynasty. During the struggle to survive in the battlefield, he meets Bo-won and Gyeon. Three men return to Korea to find no means to make living, and decide to form a con ring. Their cons range from selling a chicken as phoenix and disguising an ordinary sword as one that belonged to the great Admiral Yi Shun-shin. Soon, they become wanted by the authorities. The trio continues their scam under the radar. When their attempt to steal from the richest man in town, SUNG Dae-ryun, fails, In-hong sets up another con. He spreads the rumor that gold has been found in Daedong River, and lures SUNG into the trap. Written by CJ Entertainment

Good enough
14 September 2016 | by (Greece) – See all my reviews

So, the story is about a con artist and his mates, who are famous for their scams, and they prepare for the big one, to sell the river. Now, the movie was mainly promoted and anticipated due to Xiumin of the famous boyband Exo. However, fair warning here (might be a spoiler) he dies halfway through the movie, which promotes the main character to begin his big con. But up until that, he's acting is good enough, though the main character of course steals the show with his charms and acting skills. And that results to his acting to support the whole movie from one point till the ending. The action is great and not too tiring, and the funny parts are there, though there aren't many, especially after their friends death. Also, the cons are quite interesting and entertaining, but the main plan wasn't that good. So, 5 out of 10.
