The movie had a scene of Bae Suzy under the rain and she said it took her 10 hours to film. See more »
Obviously many Suzy fans did the reviews here LOL Anyway, here's my unbiased take on the movie. The male lead's known for being a great Korean drama actor. Unfortunately, even he couldn't carry the full burden of this awful movie. The female lead, though I'm not a fan should've considered the role carefully before taking on the challenge. Pansori is not your basic singing hence, not everyone's cut out for it or could it effectively. I'm a big Song SoHee fan & if you've heard her sing you'd know what I'm talking abt. Suzy's so-so voice & below average acting isn't fit for the role. No offense to her fans. Maybe if Suzy played the role of a karaoke try-hard wannabe singer it may have suited her better. Some people complain the storyline is boring, I don't think so. Historical movies or dramas in my opinion, are some of the best ones out there since it depicts & shares important events in a nation's culture & history.
