cao In response to Chris: The puzzling ending is indicating how many lawyers were supportive of of the main character. To some extent, you could see how alone the young prosecutor was at that moment and if I were him, I would wonder whether I was doing the right thing. For the purpose of the movie, it shows that at that point (several years after the trial of student activists), South Korea has become something different - that the voice for civil rights has become more common and the voice of the power has been weakened. That is my reading of the ending.

Chris Very powerful movie. It was sad to see human treating each other like this, but in the transformation of the main character from someone just looking to get rich to a passionate advocate and social reformer gave plenty of room for hope. But I didn't understand the final scene (I don't think this is a spoiler) where they were reciting names at the trial. What did that mean? Except for that puzzling ending I really thought this film was great.

Siwan? Looks like Siwan is getting more and more serious with his acting career. I might give this a shot.

Dawn I haven't even see it but I know it's gonna be good.

SuperGirlInLove Siwan! Siwan! Siwan! Fighting! Fighting! Fighting! Love You Oppa! :D
