Plot

After losing his job at a scrap metal yard, Kyu-Nam (Ko Su) finds a new job at a small pawn shop named Utopia. He is immediately drawn to the family atmosphere at Utopia, working with his new boss Jung-Sik (Byeon Hie-Bong) and boss's daughter Young-Sook (Jung Eun-Chae). Unfortunately for Kyu-Nam, his moment of happiness will only be fleeting.

Cho-In (Gang Dong-Won) lived through a brutal childhood. He has had to use a prosthetic leg since an early age, grew up with an abusive father and lived with a mother who at one point attempted to kill her own son out of despair. Cho-In also possesses an awe-inspiring supernatural gift. Cho-In can control other people's minds when they are within his field of sight.

One fateful day, Cho-In walks into the Utopia pawn shop to steal whatever money exists in the safe. Not expecting much resistance, Cho-In is surprised to find one man at the Utopia pawn shop is able to break free from his mind control abilities. That man is Kyu-Nam. Cho-In then resorts to killing the owner of pawn shop to make his escape. All of this is captured on CCTV.

An epic battle will soon occur between these two people with supernatural abilities and nothing to lose.

Sofi @Eulaliee I believe that the wooden doll represented his "dream" self/life. I mean in a way that he had a dull and dark life and he could only see himself being happy in that wooden doll (that's how he wanted to be, like that doll happy); this is why he was so connected to the doll. at the end we see that that the way he is positioned when he dies is the same as the wooden doll, I guess that meant that he finally ended the cruel life and reached his dream self/life.

qbee I love this movie! its everything i look in a great syfy movie! a must watch!

Eulaliee I love this movie but there's one thing that I'm still trying to figure out. I've seen this movie about five to six times already and still, I can't find what the significance of the doll meant. The doll with the red jacket that Cho-In paints and leaves in his display of giant buildings and small cars in that action figure city of his in the hotel room. At the very end when the doll appears between Manager Lim's legs and then the camera scrolls up to Cho-In's body, which was lying in the same position that the doll was too.

What does it mea? Anybody knows? I'm guessing it meant that he wanted to be a hero, right?

Loan It reminds me of the movie, Unbreakable. This movie itself is unique and different. 고수씨's character has too many lives, yet he ultimately made into something incredible. I recommend this!!! Check it out!!!
