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. Hong-Gi mocks Do Chul's obsession with good-for-nothing boxing career. Written by

This movie is at the extension of "Beat", Sung-Su Kim-Woo-Sung Jung combination's 1997 hit. Of course, this movie is a bit different from "Beat". Jung-Jae Lee, another Korean stud actor, joined the combination and the female character, Mimi, has less value than Romi. Also the ending is also not as tragic as "Beat". However, "Te yang eun up da" still talks about depression of youth and their struggle for a better tomorrow in Wang-Kar Wai like cinematography. This movie is less violent and dynamic than "Beat" but the drama is more intense. Do Chul, a boxer, has a dream to be a champion but he's got some dieseas that makes him nose bleed during the game and faints him. Hong Ki has a dream to be a millionaire and owns some buildings but all he can be is a hoodlum. They know that it's nearly impossible.
Many people assert the importance of keeping the dream and the hope. This movie asks if it's wise to go for the dreams when it seems impossible in reality. However, the movie doesn't give audiences the answer.
