I will not tell the whole story, just the very long introduction. 😊 I want to keep some of the story for you to experience. I want you to join Yong hoo as try to find what he have lost for a long time.
Yong Hoo, which was played by Park Seo Joon, did a really good job with his role. The pain and anger can be felt and seen through his facial expressions so well. He was so good in showing the conflict between believing or not that you would symphatize with him. Overall he really did a good job with his role.
For ever great hero there is a very bad villian. And Woo Do-hwan as Ji-shin did has part so well that you would really hate him. The way he gives his evil smile will make you both scared and in love with him. The chemistry of both actors is what made the film amazing. With a dash of calmness and knowledge that Ahn Sung-ki who played Father Ahn’s role. A great movie must have a well transitioned sequence with a touch of excitement, action, anger and moral story. By the end of the movie you might even question yourself, “What are you willing to sacrifice just to get what you want? And at the end, are your sacrifices worth it?”
It kinda reminds me of Constantine but with a twist. 😉
