Strange and outrageous film
When I first watched this I thought 'what is this film'? I mean, all the characters are over the top, the emotions were so unreal, the situations so stupid (and often hilarious when it was intended to be to serious) that I didn't know what to feel. I was in serious doubt that this film could have been a Korean classic! Then the last 5 minutes changed everything you felt about the film and it all made sense! The film is indeed a classic and worth watching!

It's about a man and how one mistake in his life caused so much death and sadness in his family. It goes through various surreal situations which made me laugh. There seemed to be some frustration that I felt since the actors were like in a comic book yet portrayed a serious topic which shouldn't have been funny at all, yet you laugh anyway...
