      James Marsh South China Morning Post Too often, Kim seems overly eager to sidestep Kiwan’s legal minefield in favour of a schmaltzy romance, where the forces of attraction are never any stronger than the couple’s shared nationality. Rated: 2/5 May 9, 2024 Full Review William Schwartz HanCinema As the titular Loh Kiwan, a North Korean defector attempting to survive in Belgium, there's not really much for Song Joong-ki to do except mope around looking depressed. May 5, 2024 Full Review JK Sooja Common Sense Media This dramatic thriller also wants to be a romance, but trying to be too many genres sometimes makes this film feel disjointed. Apr 17, 2024 Full Review Pallavi Keswani The Hindu A film that delivers less than what it promised. Mar 17, 2024 Full Review Roger Moore Movie Nation For a story with this much overwrought tragedy attached to it, I found (it) an oddly unemotional “weeper.” Rated: 2/4 Mar 5, 2024 Full Review Romey Norton Ready Steady Cut My Name is Loh Kiwan is a sad, heavy film to watch, it throws a lot at you as a viewer and expects you to listen, concentrate, and feel. Rated: 3/5 Mar 1, 2024 Full Review Read all reviews

      Di W The girl's story is somewhat fantastical, while the boy's story is more plausible. The narrative depicts the struggle in a worst-case life scenario and ultimately finding a way to live a normal life. In reality, the girl works for a gang and is involved with drugs, making it more challenging for her to escape the negative lifestyle. However, success is more achievable if one can climb out of the abyss. Therefore, I give this movie three stars, as it portrays the survival of individuals facing difficult circumstances in a dark and challenging life. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 04/24/24 Full Review Carlos T Filme: Meu Nome é Loh Kiwan Elenco: @hi_songjoongki @choisungeun.official @heeyaheeyaa Modelo: #drama #romance Duração: 2h 13m Ano: 2024 Minha opinião: Um drama que conta a estória Loh Kiwan, que conseguiu fugir da Coreia do Norte e ir para a China onde mora com sua mãe. Mas ela vem a falecer, mas antes pede para ele viver em um lugar onde pode utilizar seu nome, e onde da o titulo ao filme. Da China ele vai a Belgica e da entrada com asilo no país. Dado entrada, mas para resposta iria levar alguns meses. Aí pergunta como iria sobreviver até lá. E para complicar ele é assaltado e todo o seu dinheiro e documentos são roubados. E desta forma ele dorme em Laundry e depois em banheiro publico. Até encontrar albergue. Mas ele encontra a garota que lhe roubou e corre atrás, mas descobre que sua carteira esta com um gangsters. O nome dela Ma-ri, e ela tem um problema com dependência química e álcool. E como há vários norte coreanos. Ele consegue uma morada e um trabalho. E enquanto isso vai aumentando seu relacionamento com Ma-ri, mas com os problemas que ela vive, tem suas recaídas e seus maus relacionamento levam para o fundo. E existe mais problemas quando na entrevista para ganhar a cidadania colegas fazem mal testemunho. E ainda mais no dia julgamento que lhe poderia dar a cidadania ele sai para salvar Ma-ri dos Gangsters que depois dela não vencer uma disputa de pistola ela perde, e eles querem acertar as contas. Lo Kuwan aparece para salva-la e a envia para fora do país para uma ilha de seus sonhos. Ele fica, ganha a sua cidadania e ao final vai atrás de Ma-ri e terminam felizes para sempre. Roteiro e enredo morno. Tudo morno. Vale apena assistir? Não. Nota: 5 Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 04/16/24 Full Review Jasmine S I absolutely loved it. The acting was amazing. Scarry to believe this is real for so many but good to see it spoken about and shared even if it's from a book. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/26/24 Full Review Aros B It's a touching story of self redemption. May contain some spoilers You find 2 characters at the bottom of their lives trying to find an escape from what they've done in their past, they find each other by accident and help each other move on despite all the struggles in their way. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/23/24 Full Review Gia A best movie I've seen in 2 years!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/20/24 Full Review Bayara G Highly recommend. Some people only loves bloody actions, some naked bodies, some likes hilarious comedies without any common senses. But this movie is about human tragedy, struggles to survive a day, which can happen in anywhere in the world. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/14/24 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
