The first time I heard about this movie, when my friends and I was talking about Korean movie in campus laboratory. They said that this movie was so damn sad and tragic. They recommend this movie to me but I didn’t immediately watch this movie because I was a little bit busy back then. A few months later, I watched EXO Showtime (one kind of boyband’s variety show in Korea) and they were crying while watching this drama. So I was curious and tried to watch this movie too. Are you looking for the review of this movie because of EXO too? Well, EXO is pretty popular these days.
Korea has a lot of good drama to watch. And Korean movies are as good as its drama. This time I wanna recommend you to watch this movie. Miracle in Cell No.7 [7번방의 선물: 7 beonbang-ui Seonmul, literally means "A Gift from Room No.7") from the beginning till the end, this movie tells about Korean law with some funny flavors ala Korean. This movie succeeded in pulling more than 10 million viewers. This movie became the 8th Korean movie because its profit is 10 times bigger than production cost. So you don’t have to think twice whether you should watch this movie or not.
