This is about two young men who want to find the meaning of their lives. Do Chul is a boxer who never wins a game. While trying to make some money, he gets involved with Hong-Gi, a small-time crook. They somehow make friends and hang around together, but their views toward life and the world are almost opposite. Do Chul despises Hong-Gi's blind materialism.

I'm glad I threw away my reluctance to watch this film, what a treat. There was never a dull portion of the movie, kept going and sucked you in...great directing and flow here. The intensity between the main characters was incredible...credible acting and emotion which I like to see in a film (who doesn't??). Mimi (I knew it was Go Eun Han the moment I saw her walk out of Hong-Gi's room) was a good addition to the group as a "crutch" to Do Chul not to mention nice eye-candy ;) Her acting was credible as well for her early acting career at the time (debut movie?). All-in-all I highly recommend you watch this movie, you won't be disappointed...even the mediocre subtitles (at times and depending on which version you picked up) cannot ruin the intensity of this movie.
