The Thieves


Popie (Lee Jung-jae) and his infamous band of thieves – sexy acrobat Yenicall (Gianna Jun), beautiful safe cracker Pepsee (Kim Hye-soo), muscle man Zampano (Kim Soo-hyun) and long-time thief Chewingum (Kim Hae-sook) – are offered the chance by master criminal Macao Park (Kim Yoon-seok) to travel to Hong Kong to steal the Tear of the Sun diamond from a notorious crime boss. As preparations get underway and the day of the heist approaches, personal histories and animosities begin to surface, too, leaving the success of the entire project hanging in the balance. With an all-star cast and a pulse-pounding plot, was the second highest grossing film of all time in Korea in 2013.
