Synopsis: This story starts from “What if I’m a father who lost his daughter to a tragic accident?” While the world is filled with stories about revenge and forgiveness, what if we were the victims? Would we be able to forgive and forget so easily? What if the things that happened on the screens actually happened to us and involved my family such as my daughter? How would a father feel if he loses his daughter and neither the law, or the police can do anything about it? What else would he be able to do?
Musings: This is definitely a “What would you do?” drama special as we follow Lieutenant Jae Ho as he investigates the crimes against his daughter and the people involved. A happy story or ending, this is not but maybe a cautionary tale of how no matter how much we try to protect our children, sometimes we can fail and the sadness as well as sorrow that can overtake you can and WILL control your life. The sad thing was to find out that the criminal was being protected by Jae Ho’s superior. It made you wonder just how much he knew. The movie is filled with violence, as you can imagine so stay clear if you are squeamish! The revelation at the ending: unexpected.
I enjoyed seeing Yoon Tae Young again. From the wonderful father in King’s Daughter to the underutilized Jo Sang Heon in Night Watchman’s Journal. It is really hard to believe how well an actor he is but gets so few roles. I’m still waiting for his career to soar and soar. If anyone ever finds “Late Night Hospital” with english subtitles; let me know!
Next month I will concentrate on some of the movies that I liked that are also readily available on legitimate streaming websites like Netflix, Hulu, SoompiTV, and DramaFever.
I’m available on Twitter. Thanks to all of you Twinkles out here who are taking the time to read! If you have a suggestion for a future review, just leave me a comment! I’m always happy to have movie suggestions.
