| Memorably Terrible
This film managed to be worse than it's predecessor.

How, you may ask when the first film had crappy effects, cheesy dialogue, no plot and laugh-free? By adding lots and lots of dead little girls, of course!

There's no attempt at historical accuracy and the acting is below average. Oh Dal-su is a kind of actor who Koreans instantly laugh by him just standing in the scene. But even he can't really save this crap.

A lame "action moment" happens when the hero uses a grenade to create diversion and get away while actually not harming anyone. Then it happens again. And then it happens again! And holy cow, it happens again!!

The twists aren't really predictable but that's because the film cheats and slavishly ticks all the clichés of this genre when it's obviously inappropriate

I guess the first film was harmless (despite being really bad) with some dumb laughs here and there but this one manages to be offensive too.

Warning for real bad after-taste since this is the first comedy I've seen where many many young girls end up severely poisoned if not dead already.

Thumbs way down. The competition is pretty high in Korean cinema when choosing the worst film of the year, but I know this one will be there since it's memorably terrible.
