Synopsis: Corrupt detective Han Jong Sik (Kim Seung Woo) takes care of a gang and gets kickbacks to save his daughter. One day he gets news from the organ transplant coordinator that they have found a heart for his daughter (kim Sae Ron). However, he finds out the donor is magician Na Sang Man (Son Byeong Ho) who he put false charges over and was in jail.


Musings: Rewatch this one? Oh No! Not me! But this was a pretty good movie from start to finish. My appreciation for Kim Seung Woo as an actor is in the stratosphere! Jong Sik is about as corrupt as you can get. All will have sympathy for his daughter, of course.

But the one who I must doubly applaud is Son Byung Ho as the horribly persecuted husband and father. What he brought to his character was simply sheer genius. Talk about cry me a river! You can’t help but cry for his character, wife and daughter. So can I consciously recommend this? If you have to have a strong mind and heart to get through this movie, then yes. Why? Because the violence, depiction of police corruption and other things that happen in this movie; not everyone can endure. But if you can, it is a GREAT MOVIE!
