To Chinese restaurant delivery boy 'Ju', the only joy in life is spending time at the electronic game room.

However, the two are not only confronted by a gigantic force called the System, that attempts to stop them, but other obstacles that place their lives in danger... Written by Anonymous

Trivia

One of the songs played in the movie is called "Dreams Come True", by Korean trio S.E.S. The music was originally from a song by Finnish duo Nylon Beat, titled "Rakastuin Mä Luuseriin", but SMTown (S.E.S record company) took it (most likely without crediting Nylon Beat) and made "Dreams Come True" back in 1998. "Dreams Come True" is pretty much a modern classic in Korea. See more »

Not well-made Sci-fi movie, but...
23 September 2002 | by (jinju, south korea) – See all my reviews

This movie is known as the biggest budget movie in korean movie history. But the director, jang is not good at this kind of blockbuster movie. He is good at art film, so this movie is not well-made sci-fi movie. But from the point of art film, this is charming and attractive. I was very interested, but many of korean viewers were angered with this movie. I am very curious what response will happen if this movie is seen to other country's people. This movie is far from any kind of hollywood sci-fi movie. This point is a merit of this movie, but it might effect to fail in boxoffice.

In conclusion, I recommend this movie because of its unique style. If you are very anxious for unique and new style, this movie might be a kind of answer.
