Crazy ideas are back! This time I picked a movie where the characters look like 25 years old and by that I mean everyone, including the parents! The story is set in a dystopian world but if you pay attention, it isn’t that different from the real one. Korean actors are well known for their youthful looks but their acting ability matters more. You also have to take in consideration if, by real standards, they are suitable to play a supporting role rather than a main role or vice versa. Check out my first crazy idea too: If Meet Joe Black were a korean drama.
In a future where people stop aging at 25, but are engineered to live only one more year, having the means to buy your way out of the situation is a shot at immortal youth. Here, Will Salas finds himself accused of murder and on the run with a hostage – a connection that becomes an important part of the way against the system.

- Korean version: I think that the time lengh it good enough but koreans have to add their clishes so it probably needs an addition of 15-20 minutes.
