    Director Kim Jee-woon [Chae Ki-won/10Asia] 10: Then what were Soo-hyun's tears in the end about? Pity for himself for having become the devil? Kim Jee-woon: Probably several things.

And within time span of less than a year, he has quite quickly taken on three roles starting with MBC TV series "Personal Taste" where he plays Tae-hoon who clings onto the woman he has a crush on, then "Best Theatre - Lunch Box" an MBC Sunday drama series whose title is translates into 'lunchbox', and movie "Acoustic",...More

Bittersweet Life by blanca

his is a good movie although it's quite violent! I guess I got accustomed to seeing wholesome K-dramas lately! LBH is a great actor & I started following his projects from then on!

Wow! A very sadistic yet interesting movie. Well, Lee Byeong Heon plays totally great. I the scene he comes out from the mud. Brilliant! And yeah, it has a tragical ending.
This movie is god but sad ending :S
