[HanCinema's Film Review] "A Company Man" on the Edge of Freedom... 2013/02/16, Film:"A Company Man"Director/Writer:Lim Sang-yoonStars: So Ji-sub, Lee Mi-yeon, Kwak Do-won, Lee Kyeong-yeong & Dong JunReview Score: 3.5 / 5

Writer/director Lim Sang-yoon's first feature may not have set the box office on fire when it was release in the latter half of 2012, but what stands out most here is his creative competency and mastery over the more technical aspect of cinema and narrative. The popular So Ji-sub plays Hyeong-Do, a highly trained and slick assassin who comes to question his role and future within the underground company he has so faithfully served,...More
