Can I be honest and tell yall that I actually watched this about two months ago with my friend via Rabbit’s cheap replacement. I figured in honor of Its Okay To Not Be Okay airing today that I would finally write this review even though I barely remember anything about it. BOOM!
If memory serves me right this movie premiered right after the whole Burning Sun scandal which made it seem like art imitating life. For the most part the movie was well acted, but the story was stretched a little thin. I definitely dozed off a bit and I’m sure my friend noticed.
The story starts with Chan Woo talking about the club that he wants to create and make it honest. He enrolled Eun Young into his plans and eventually was able to launch a bustling club. Unfortunately things go south quickly with a drug coverup and death of a celebrity. It’s easy to immediately identify who the bad guys were and the story proceeded to move in a straight forward, albeit kinda unbelievable way. There was a particular scene that I thought was absolutely stupid that it was comedic and I have decided that, that was probably what they were aiming for because that was definitely unbelievable in every portion.
The highlight of this movie as I previously mentioned is the acting delivery of the cast. Park Hae Soo was very charismatic and delivered quite well. I love Seo Ye Ji so much and even though there’s not much to her character here, I thought of it as a teaser for what her role in Its Okay To Not Be Okay would be like. I am a sucker for a good standoffish female lead… Maybe because it hits very close to home? Idk Hhehehe. Also the fits were AMAZING.
I did think that the scenes were beautifully shot and I like the cuts of the fight scene, but unfortunately without a very engaging story, you can only appreciate that much. Overall, like I said, decent movie with a really good cast. Not really worth recommending though.
Production Value: 7/10
