T.O.P Takes on Action in “Commitment” Written by Lo On July 31, 2014
Commitment was arguably the most buzzed-about Korean film of 2013. Partially because of the high concept of a reluctant teenager forced into espionage, but mostly because said teenager was played the one and only T.O.P.

Commitment is a violent, gory shoot-’em-up filled with injuries and murder and an alarmingly cavalier attitude towards death. It really only bothers with the modern politics of the North-South divide because it’s a convenient backdrop for the blood and gore. This is not said as a criticism but a clarification. Many were disappointed by the rather small part the politics played in the film
