Bland and narrow as it gets
11 October 2014 | by KineticSeoulSee all my reviews

This is got to be one of the most self-indulgent movie I have ever seen. Well self-indulgent for the actor Song Seung-hun. It's pretty much that "oh I can't live without you girl" premise to elevate his popularity with the female audiences. The story is straightforward, I don't even think there needed to be a military background or anything like that. Everything is very predictable for the most part. It's sad when the protagonists are more dis-likable than the side characters. As a matter of fact, the actor and actress that had the side or supporting characters roles did a much better job than the primary. Overall, this is a forgettable flick. And I can see only one reason this movie could sell tickets, it's to see Song Seung-hun with his shirt off. There is little to almost nothing in it for the guys to enjoy.

2.5/10
