Having once done time behind bars, CHA Tae-sik now leads a quiet life. His only connection to the rest of the world is a little girl, So-mi, who lives nearby. So-mi’s mother, Hyo-jeong, smuggles drugs for a drug trafficking organization and entrusts Tae-sik with the product. When the traffickers find out they kidnap both Hyo-jeong and So-mi. Mistaking Tae-sik for another mule, the brothers that lead the gang—Man-sik and Jong-sik—promise to release Hyo-jeong and So-mi if Tae-sik makes a delivery for them. Tae-sik makes the decision to face the outside world in order to rescue So-mi. However, the delivery was part of a larger plot to eliminate a rival drug ring leader, Mr. Oh, and Tae-sik is arrested. At the same time, Hyo-jeong’s disemboweled body is discovered, and Tae-sik realizes that So-mi’s life may also be in danger. He fights off half a dozen detectives and escapes from the police station. Now on the run, Tae-sik pursues Man-sik and Jong-sik. In the process, he discovers that their drug ring operates around kidnapped children. Stumbling upon a factory where the brothers have children’s organs removed to accommodate the drugs, Tae-sik rescues one child just before surgery and becomes enraged at the prospect So-mi may already be dead. Tae-sik prepares for a battle with Man-sik and Jong-sik, putting his own life at risk…

  • Little Wonders - The Child Actors of South Korea

    2011/10/08, Source,
    Sim Eun-kyeong - "Hansel and Gretel" The way people perceive of child actors can be guessed by the term itself. "Child actor" instead of "actor", as it is for everyone else. Whether the world likes it or not, Western cinema, and mainly Hollywood, is the one that is available everywhere and so in our faces that we are often having trouble finding anything else. So the usual idea people have about child actors as well, comes from Hollywood. We see children as adorable amateurs who can't really act, but are still endearing and cute for trying. We usually tend to forgive or ignore their performances in works because they seem to have no guidance or much effort put in them,...More
  • The 3 Means of Success For Hot Stars

    2011/10/01, Source,
    There was an article a few days ago in the korean Osen portal, on Kang Dong-won, Won Bin and Gong Yoo and 3 common elements between them which contributed to their success. Being someone who has quite positive feelings for all three of these beloved actors, I decided to write an article inspired by the one found in Osen. Well-timed transition from television to movies So the one obvious common strategy between these three is that they started with television. Dramas are a good way to gain popularity, raise the level of offers you get and generally get noticed. All three gentlemen started with them and gained recognition and mainly fame through them. But television is a good way to pigeonhole ones self,...More
  • Be Aware for the UPCOMING MOVIE 'Arrow, The Ultimate Weapon'

    2011/09/30, Source,
    Park Hae-il Will SURELY Pierce the Hearts of All Women in the US! Don't miss your opportunity to watch 'Arrow, The Ultimate Weapon' Releasing in LA (September 30th) and Nationwide (October 7th)! Succeeding over Won Bin's "The Man From Nowhere" in 2010, Park Hae-il's "Arrow, The Ultimate Weapon" hits straight to the top of the box office :) Here's a brief synopsis: Nam-Yi uses an arrow that is only 1/3 of the traditional arrow size and weight, making it superior in velocity, force, and range. His arrows make it hard to detect the shooter's location, thus ideal for an ambush. On the other hand, Jyu Shin-Ta uses an arrow that is 24 times heavier than the traditional arrow, tearing apart targets with just one shot. Different features and actions that are performed by each bow will keep you on the edge of your seat with action that has never before been experienced in Korean film history,...More

Your reviews
excellent movie by ilovehockey

his movie was terrific from start to finish. Although, it is clear that this film definitely took the ideas from two mainstream Hollywood movies: Taken and Man On Fire, which in turn; were taken from The Professional aka Leon, it was still a very well written movie. It combined drama, suspense, action, and thrilling sequences. Won Bin, was absolutely wonderful in this and I think he definitely played into the character to make it that much more believable. I'm not particularly a huge fan of when a movie steals an idea from another one and remakes it, but if it is done well, then I have to be well impressed. And impressed I was. The little girl in this movie, did a very fine job in making her seem like the cute and innocent girl that she was portrayed to be...but, with a little bit of spunk. A movie well worth watching. I would give it perfect marks if it were not for the fact that this was a remake. Otherwise, it was a movie that I will see many times over.
