Synopsis
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…

  • Kanryu Currents in Japan, Past and Present

    2012/03/11, Source,
    Tokyo-based journalist, translator and filmmaker Jason GRAY examines the ebb and flow of the Korean Wave in Japan over the past ten years, pinpointing the highs and lows. The Korean wave of popular culture in Japan, referred to as "kanryu" or "hanryu" in Japanese, has had an interesting ebb and flow over the past decade. There were earlier booms here including traditional Korean ballads ("enka") in the late 70s, the Seoul Olympics in 1988 and the South Korea-Japan co-hosted World Cup in 2002. Japanese cinema exhibitors saw their first genuine Korean smash with Kang Je-gyu's "Shiri" (2000), which earned JPY1.8 billion (US$22.1 million) - an impressive result to this day. As we'll see, KANG is unique in that he figures into pre, peak and post kanryu cinema,...More

Your reviews
excellent movie by ilovehockey

T
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.
