Disappointing, Earnest, Young, Boring music, Uneven singing

See it if You want to see young artists in an earnest attempt at drama. If you have never heard of this story, this is at least a beginning.

Don't see it if you really want to know about the Comfort Women. The crawl at the opening curtain had more information than the ensuing 110 minutes. Read more

Uneven singing, Pedestrian music/lyrics, Interesting theme, Committed acting, Lacks impact

See it if you are interested in learning about horrible Japanese exploitation of Koreans, especially women.

Don't see it if you expect in-depth understanding of the topic, non-stereotyped characters & strong emotional impact that should occur with such a subject.
