They are great actor and actress. This movie full of betrayed. I like the gun battle part. kekeke. escaping and chasing part between Macao Park and Wei Hong man were so cool! Btw, Kim Soo Hyun kissed 2 times here. Enjoy the movie^^
The movie started with a group of Korean thieves Popie (Lee Jung Jae), Yenicall (Gianna Jun), Chewinggum (Kim Hae Suk) and Zampano (Kim Soo Hyun) stealing antique vase. Later, they contacted by Macao Park (Kim Yun Seok) in which he proposes a highly lucrative new job in Macau. They leaves to Hong Kong with Pepsee (Kim Hye Soo) who was released from prison on a special pardon.
A few years back, Popie, Pepsee and Macao Park perform a thieves gruop to steal gold bars. But Macao Park's cable snapped in a elevator shaft and he disappeared with the gold bars. Pepsee was arrested shortly afterwards.
In Hong Kong, another separate crew awaits for the Korean thieves. The four Hong Kong thieves consists of Chen (Simon Yam), Andrew (Oh Dal Su), Julie (Angelica Lee) and Johnny (Kwok Cheung Tsang).

Furthermore, the diamond is stashed safely in the suite room of a Macau casino & resort. Macao Park also lays another bombshell. He can easily sell the "Tear of Sun" diamond for $20 million dollars.
