aas original japanese version is much better

Clarkdale44 For me, its a complete disappointment.. I thought he would be able to make a perfect plan for their escape but he actually sacrificed himself to save her!! WTF.. Its total wastage... He had a perfect genius brain, he could be successful later... What a bummer.. wasted his life for a girl who never acknowledged him. I will give it 3/10(Wastage of my time, i regret every minute)

Lana Hassan The movie is incredible ... I really enjoyed it ... Intelligence isn't everything !

Capricorn0Angel ALL HAIL THE STORY-WRITER AND THE SCRIPT-WRITER!

I thought it was him vs detective, but.... I thought I am clever enough to follow and predict the plot, but... I thought he never have a sincere love for her, but... I thought he doesn't make it all up alone and still needs cooperation, bravery, and good acting from Hwasun and Yoon-a, but...

All he alone has done is truly a perfect love-based mathematics. Perfect number.

[SPOILER ALERT]

  • but I'm still wondering, why he didn't sink the dead body like what he just did, without having to kill another person and make this 2nd dead body found by those polices?

is it because he doesn't want there is even any single probability that Hwasun will be caught? So he did it all in order to make sure that he is the one that later will be punished? And he even made Hwasun hate him so she will not feel burdened if Suk go got caught by the police instead of her? the loveliest man on earth, you Suk Go!

X Is this remake of Suspect X? If Yes, I won't waste my time for a remake..

black_blood wow..the movie was too good..
