| Nothing extraordinary,still makes a good impression on you
I am quite a regular viewer of Korean film and watched nearly 50 movies already( I am not a Korean though lol)...but this film meant something different to me.

it was my first dong-il shin film.although it was an independent film under budget constraint,the director made the best out of it quite comfortably.the acting of the two lead characters have been up to the mark.the characters were well developed but in the end the story lead to an uncertain ending.

It is a story of an immigrant Bangladeshi worker karim(Mahbub Alam)who came to Korea for a better fortune just like other guys from south-east Asia.He eventually met a girl named Minsuh(Jin-hee Baek) and both of them had a good friendship.but things turned out to be different later on.this film reflects the hardship of immigrant workers in Korea and has been a realistic portrayal of generation conflicts among the families like minsuh's.

for the viewers of korean film this is sure going to be quite an enjoyable experience and it's a MUST SEE for all bangladeshi's.i rated it 9/10.
