[ K ] My Name

So satisfying to watch My Name. Just love the cinematography, the pace, the sound editing and the fighting. Han So Hee, best remembered (previously) as the mistress in The World of Married, is the crazy femme fatale caught in a web of lies. You won’t want to cross her. Even the villain(played by Hee-Soon Park) is so handsome and somewhat likable/emphatizable. To label this as a homage to Hong Kong gangster/cop movies will be unfair because Korean have always done violence very well, just think Chaser, think Tazza. It is more like a reminder that a genre that was once so synonymous with HK shows can only be seen elsewhere now. Hard for me to watch My Name and not be reminded of the Infernal Affairs trilogy.
