The literal translation means The Technicians but the movie is also known under following English titles - The Con Artists and Criminal Designer, which kinda fits considering the plot.
I wouldn't say it was the best movie I have seen, it was kinda predicable and sorta slow here and there. Yet, it's not bad to look at Kim Woo-Bin.
I'm still happy I saw it. I saw the first screening of the day so it was very cheap and it was only 4 other people at the cinema so it was very calm.
There were many different effects used and it kinda felt like a typical Korean story with the "Maffia" involved.
