Synopsis: Upon his exit from a detention center, a young law-breaker meets the woman who gave him up for adoption at age 17.

"Good-looking, tightly written and edited ... Marbled with involving moments" -- Derek Elley, Film Business Asia

    I agree with Alby about the movie but meeting everyone afterwards was nice. Thanks everyone for making my 1st Meetup event so pleasant :-)

    This is the kind of movie that gets singled out for its acting and cinematography -- and not much else. Seo Young-joo is physically and emotionally perfect for the role, and the premise is interesting, but the movie makes waste of its parts by taking on more melodrama than it can handle.
