Amazing performances, not so great plot
8 November 2018 | by DavidTheFoxSee all my reviews

Review: Although the script and idea were good, the movie overall felt pretty unachieved, with a main plot that felt unconcluded and forgettable characters with whom I felt no connection. With that being said the movie overall is okay to see in an afternoon where you have nothing else to do, the acting is top notch from both main actors, which present themselves as two promising stars in the Korean scenario, particularly the main actor Jung-min Park who also appeared early this year in "Keys to the Heart" with an absolutely fantastic role as a handicapped kid, now plays a completely different character being a unachieved rapper with a lot of unresolved childhood issues. Worth seeing for the performances.
