Coin Locker Girl

A child abandoned in a subway coin locker is sold to a ruthless and calculating loan shark and gangster boss dubbed “Mother” (Kim Hye-soo), who runs an organ-harvesting ring in Incheon’s Chinatown. Named Il-Young (Kim Go-Eun), the baby girl grows into Mother’s loyal right-hand enforcer and is groomed to be her eventual successor. But when Il-Young’s loyalty to Mother wavers, the clash between the two unleashes a merciless tidal wave of blood-soaked retribution and strife.

    Two great female leads, a very calm mood and a great colour design.

    Really enjoyed watching this little Korean thriller.

    Kim Go Eun never fails to amaze me with her acting, this is probably my fav movie by her so far. It was a heartwrenching story that captivated me from the first minute, the cinematography was dark and beautiful and the cast was a+

    On a side note i want to congratulate Bogum because he won me with this movie, i've never been a fan of the it boys acting but he proved himself with this film and i'm gonna watch his dramas because of this.

    La Corea más brutal retratada bajo el lente y pluma de un novato Han Jun-hee quien no le tiembla el pulso a la hora de retratar el violento mundo de la mafia coreana en una historia de venganza que se ve sustentada por dos pedazos de actrices, Kim Go-Eun y Hye-su Kim con dos personajes maravillosos e interpretaciones que ponen los pelos de punta y que son el punto más fuerte de esta emocionante película.

    This is the second Kim Go Eun movie I've seen and I must say that she is an absolute star. Her very first scene was amazing.

    I also want to give a little shout out to Go Kyung Pyo. Prior to watching this movie, I had only seen him act in Chicago Typewriter aka one of the best Korean dramas of this year (tied with Circle), and to suddenly see him play such a despicably low character was really shocking.

    My only issue is that the development of Kim Go Eun and Park Bogum's characters seemed too unnatural.
