Then everything changed when he meet Han Kang Sik, prosecutor who has the power of the king, but then Tae Soo see what's behind the curtain, the movie reflected the power of the prosecutors on the 90s.Written by
I thought it was a great satire of modern Korean history, with a tongue-in-cheek approach. It was well filmed and acted, with a great soundtrack. One thing though, the subtitles were horrible (ie. missing translations, etc...), would have been nice to have a better translation. I hope the director releases the extended cut on blu ray (supposedly has more scenes with the gangster friend, wife, and last act). The movie may not be for everyone, but I really enjoyed it!
