Great acting, scenes and filming – however as you pointed out there are too many characters, plus too much details in the story and what is happening so I feel very much like they are rushing through just to get all the "too much details and stuff" into this movie. I didn't even have time to recognize beautiful actress Kim Seol-hyun in this movie. It was simply put too much into too little time for so much information to be processed. One thing I like to point out is that I like the fact that they used actor Lee Min-ho in a completely different role then what we are used to see him in (usually very soft and sometimes almost a bit feminin because of his good looks), I loved seeing him in this role. Of course Kim Rae-won never disappoints, but I think because of the rushing through it all in this movie he didn't seems to fully into character. This movie had huge potential, but it was ruined unfortunately… I highly recommend the other two movies in this Director-screenwriter's Yoo Ha's "street series" trilogy movies. "Once Upon a Time in High School: The Spirit of Jeet Kune Do" (2004) is one of my all time favorite movies, and "A Dirty Carnival" (2006) is really good also with actor Jo In-sung who is phenomenal in this movie (again with a totally different role than what we are used to – even his walk is unique !).

It felt like 3 seasons of tv show in one film. I don't like it.
