When I finished this movie I didn't know how to rate it. It took me about a day to realize how amazing and wonderful the movie is. So colourful yet so dark with great acting. The plot is not unique - she is a detective and he is a criminal. Their love is forbidden. Nothing special yet. But the performance is very good. They make you feel the love between the two main characters without a single kiss. The word 'love' is not mentioned even once but you know that their love is great and beautiful. The slow motion delivers more emotions than every word. The fight scenes were like dancing. So beautiful. The last scene teared my eyes and I don't usually cry so easily. It wasn't like fighting it was more like making love.
Great OST! The love song duet gives me goosebumps every time I hear it.
A thing that I didn't like is that they made Ha Ji Won's character too simpleton. She could have been more girly, I think.
And 'Sad eyes' was more beautiful than her. Fact!
I'll stop here - it IS a masterpiece but it's not for everyone. You have to feel it. I believe many people can't understand it. I can't fully understand it too.
The main heroes have pretty much the same style. They are blade master thieves who like to wear black coloured clothes, to cover their faces with masks and to 'fly' under the light of the moon. Both of them are popular with their sad eyes. They are people who violate the law. Both dramas are filled with action and involve a somewhat tragic love story, set in different centuries in Korea.
