Storyline

A quartet of disaffected Korean youths have robbed a Seoul gas station. Later, while hanging out in a Chinese noodle shop, they decide to rob the same gas station. After taking the gas station over, their wacky antics ensue; forcing the manager to sing, kidnapping customers that complain about the service, and staging fist-fights between street gang members and gas station employees; all of these reflect their own gripes against society.

a must see!!
24 August 2002 | by (California, USA) – See all my reviews

other's have very nicely described what this movie is about, so I'll keep it simple. This movie got me hooked into watching other great korean movies like "chin goo(friend), my sassy girl....etc. it's was very funny and entertaining to me, who wasn't too exposed to korean cinema.
