Full of cliche-ridden things, but still not bad.
10 November 2020 | by kimsuzi08See all my reviews

Though Covid-19 beats the theater screening, I, on the side of the audience, like the situation a bit because of a lot of small movies and re-released masterpieces. If there were no pandemic, I wonder how this movie is scored and evaluated.

This movie seems not as good as much as I expected. It is full of cliche-ridden lighting and editing. I like the way that they harvest the MacGuffins, but the purse of the story's development is somewhat messy.

I'm really sorry to say to the staff, ironically, I prefer the video that three main actors sing the song "What's the matter" in Yu Huiyel's Sketchbook.

The best part of what I like is the balance of the characters. No one stands out but there's a suitable tension between them to lead the development.

Sometimes, I used to feel tired in self-purification of society. I'm getting used to getting rid of it or running away. There is a Korean proverb that if a monk doesn't like the temple, he needs to leave. This movie makes me repeat the verse. Why does the monk have to leave? Is it okay even if the temple is filled with villains? This movie throws a pebble into the calm lake of my mind.
