Did You Know?


Jung-jae Lee found the action sequences in Thailand more spectacular than he expected. He had to familiarize himself with a seamless sequence of moves and practice with the martial arts team for weeks. See more »

Alternate Versions

The film initially received an adults only classification when first submitted to the Korean censors. The filmmakers edited 50 seconds of footage to achieve a more profitable "15" rating. When the film became a massive hit, it was re-released (as the "Final Cut") with the initially removed footage reinstated. See more »

The Korean version of Taken meets John Wick
19 September 2020 | by Top_Dawg_CriticSee all my reviews

Wow this Korean film was surprisingly impressive! It's one of the best Asian films I've seen. What's even more impressive, is that it was written and directed by a newb/amateur Korean filmmaker, Won-Chan Hong. You'd think a seasoned filmmaker put this action-crime-thriller together.

The directing and cinematography was perfection. Camera colors, shots and angles were top-shelf. The writing - especially for an Asian action film, was excellent. A great story that was cleverly written, well paced within its 108 min runtime, and properly edited. It literally is the Korean version of Liam Neeson in Taken meets assassin John Wick. The action sequences were expertly choreographed. The score was great and fitting, without being overbearing. Casting and performances were outstanding. The little Korean girl was so adorable. Filmmaker Won-Chan Hong is certainly one to keep an eye on.

I'll definitely be watching this one again. It's a well deserved 9/10 from me. To see more of my 1000+ ratings and reviews, and to see how I critique films, simply click on my username.
