I watched this movie a while ago and never knew that I actually knew a lot of the actors in this movie! I need to watch this again...
It was my favorite Jun Jihyun role too! She was such a badass, @KpopBeat.
@danidee i think that is why I loved it so much. it did have the same feel
I LOVED THIS MOVIE. My favorite character was Chewing Gum. It kind of reminded me of a very Korean/Chinese Ocean's Eleven.
loved that movie
