I am a fan of Jang Hyuk and use to be fond of Sung Yu-Ri as a singer and a actress, so it was inevitable for me to miss this flick. This is sort of a road movie because the character don't seem to go in a particular direction most of the time. And meet by coincidence a few times. And the two characters are facing different struggles, one facing death real soon because of problems with his heart but does his daily routine of driving around a cab anyways and the other has emotional scars and is looking for her past. This is a slowly moving movie that takes quite a while to get to the core to the story, if there is a core. But I guess that is to show more of each characters personality traits and what they are going through even more. And to increase the silent depressing emotions of it all. On the road the two character share there scars and start to help each other overcome their struggles a bit even if it's nothing grand. Sung Yu-Ri is born in Korea but she does a good job acting like a Korean-American that is from America and pulls of the bratty trait well. There isn't any action in this and excitement or tension and the characters just look so darn dull. So it can bore the hell out of some audiences. But the circumstances they are in it's understandable, but the characters look so bored it's very possible the audiences will as well. It's a slow and quite, dark and melancholic drama indie flick that take place in Korea. If you like these quite and depressing movie that doesn't have a direct direction but has a bit of heart when it comes to relationship between strangers. There might be a chance you will like this one or it will bore you to tears.
