First off don't watch this if you're expecting a high action gangster movie with a fast pace.
It's more of a drama with little bits of action in it. But still a touching movie with very strong character development. You start to grow an attachment to some of the characters in it because it is very well done in that sense. It is worth seeing for that reason alone. Not to mention it also has some funny scenes as well.
The only thing it really lacked was an original plot. It has been done before but I still quite liked the movie although nothing spectacular.
I like Korean gangster movies because they are more emotionally involving and this one was for sure so check it out just don't get it expecting lots of action, blood etc but also don't fret because there is some in it.
