K-movie Feels:

Story: This movie can be triggering as it deals with very dark topics, so watch at your own risk. It talks about sexual abuse, bullying, abandonment, murder, abuse of power, mental illness and etc. This movie is a roller coaster of emotions. The plot of the story was heartbreaking and so painful. The plot twist at the end, I didn’t see it coming.

Acting/Cast: Pero kahit na disturbing or uncomfortable para sa akin yung plot at story, ang galing naman ng aktingan sa movie na ito. The whole cast was phenomenal. Yung kumulo ang dugo ko sa ibang mga characters dahil sa galit ko sa kanila.

Park Jin Young’s Acting: Jinyoung’s performance was so good that I really want to urge everybody to watch this. He was stellar in his dual role, the emotions that he went through and was able to portray, I felt them. He deserve an award for this movie.

Overall: If you’re simply a fan of Park Jinyoung, or like a revenge flick… you’re in for a big surprise.


My Rating – 8.5/10 – (Extremely dark, violent, triggering but exceptional acting from the whole cast. )
