Korean Thieves
Chinese Thieves


main characters
I like almost all the characters in here. They have their plots and interests. All are popular actors and actresses in Korea. I bet you know Kim Soo Hyun from "The Moon that Embraces The Sun" and Jeon Ji Hyun from "My Sassy Girl".

Kim Yoon Seok as Macao Park
Here is the boss and the master thief. He was involved in love triangle between Popeye and Pepsi. Macao Park planned to keep the diamond for himself. He is also was once as Popeye's partner. 

Lee Jung Jae as Popeye 
I think Popeye hates Macao Park. They becomes a rival after Macao Park run away with 68kgs of gold for himself. Moreover, he also likes Pepsi. 

Kim Hye Soo as Pepsi
After she get out from the prison, she joins back with the gang to steal a diamond. Macao Park and her have  a same love interest.

Kim Hae Sook as Chewing Gum
A middle aged mother and alcoholic woman. She finally found out her new love with Chen, Chinese Thief Leader.

Jeon Ji Hyun as Yenicall / Anycall
A sexy burglar and wire robber. She likes to seduce man. Her favorite quote is " Happy Ending is Mine". Actually, she is my favourite character. She is funny and so tempting.

Kim Soo Hyun as Zampano
A Korean-Chinese thief and the youngest. He has a love interest with Anycall. Anyway, fans of Kim Soo Hyun can see him speaking in Chinese. However, his scene isn't long but worthy :D

Oh Dal Soo as Andrew
A Korean-Chinese burglar. He joined the Chinese group along with Johnny (Derek Tsang). He is the funniest thief in my opinion.

Could I say one more time, I love all characters here. Also the high profile cast from Hongkong, China, and Malaysia. Simon Yam, Derek Tsang, and Angelica Lee.


Finally and finally i can watch this movie. i can't express how happy i am when watched this movie yesterday. trailer and movie are both great as i could imagine. i like The Thieves so much. although this is my first time watched Korean Movie in cinema, i enjoyed it very much.

At first, i am really having difficulties in reading subtitles. there was 2 subtitles, English and Indonesian. i'm confused, but in the end just read what you can see in the movie.

Name characters are earlier come up on the screen, so you don't have to ask "Who is she?" or "Who is he?". First scene is Popeye's group stole antique thing. Clean and impressive of heist scene ever. I like it. After Macao Park brought Chinese thieves, the scenes are more attractive than ever. Korean people who don't understand Chinese and Chinese thieves who gossiping Korean people. In the end, this scene becomes a comedy scenes as well. Then, the plot is going more exciting when each of thieves have their own agenda to keep the diamond for themsleves. Seeing their plan to steal the diamond, i feel like a little bit want to become a thief. The ending of the movie is also unpredictable.

Because I'm a fan of Kim Soo Hyun, I don't forget to capture my favourite scene of him. When he is kissing Anycall in the movie, I'm just fluttering. Blah, the kiss is absolutely great.

Comedy : Yes ! Thriller : Yes ! Love Intrigue : Yes ! Oh gosh, all are packed beautifully as you watch The Thieves. I'm serious. I surely recommend you all to watch this movie. The Thieves has the highest ticket sales in Korea. If you ask me if i would want to watch this movie again? I absolutely say YES !

An entertaining movie which is fun, clever, and thrilling. Must watched movie from Korean.
