I watched this film with such excitement. but I'm quite disappointed of what I saw after expecting so much from the trailer.
First I'm Korean myself and was surprised to see such high CGI effect movie from a Korean director.
Although D-war had quite great CGI , haeundae was the first disaster movie from Korea.
The first part is just drama style comedy plot, which is not that great. It get's boring, and I tend to forget that I was watching a disaster movie. About hour later the movie past, first real disaster occurs. When the tsunami hit Haeundae, it was quite something, the effects were well done, and outlined the problems that would occur well. But I'm disaspointted to see only one disaster occurring. After all this wait in the movie, there's only about 10 minutes of the tsunami. Rest is just back to normal drama plot.
