Storyline

Su-hyun wants to leave the syndicate and opens a small restaurant. Helping his life-long friend from an orphanage, he gets arrested for a murder that he didn't commit. To catch the real killer, he hurts himself in prison and is transported to the hospital. Sung-woo is a homicide detective. His wife has left him, and his son's life is in jeopardy. He can't afford to pay the hospital bills, not to mention the liver transplant needed to save his son's life. To make matters worse, he gets reprimanded at work for walking out on his undercover post, which led to the death of his partner. Having gotten drunk out of guilt, he creates a scene at the funeral for his late colleague and gets kicked out, only to end up becoming a hostage of a jail breaker, Su-hyun. Written by Anon

Stylish buddy cop action movie
17 August 2006 | by chemical404See all my reviews

This one really cant be called 'another Korean drama'. First of all its action movie, then a bit of comedy and drama. Basically its a buddy cop movie. Just in this case there is good guy - yakuza type criminal, and the bad ass cop. Maybe this movie is a bit too cynical, like most critics say, but i think its a good thing (at least no unnecessary tears like in most over-melodramatic Korean movies). Anyway, first of all, and above of all in this movie is style. You gonna love that bad guy with a coat;) Stylish editing, stylish camera work.

So if you want something entertaining and fun to watch don't miss this one.
