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.
