OK guys, this is what the movie's about-, 13 July 2010
Author: wax_noodles from United States

It's hard to see how well made this movie is if you didn't grow up in Korea. The movies doesn't provoke much thought but the director obviously put so much thought into the details of the movie.

To understand the movie, here are a few basic facts: 1. This movie isn't set in 21st century. It takes place in 1983, when Korean students were free to where ordinary clothes to school as opposed to uniforms. Therefore, the characters will be more "old-minded" and more conservative than present day Koreans. 2. Korea is an extremely hierarchical society. This was much worse during the 80s than it is now. 3. Back then, students weren't respected much as individuals(they still aren't, but it's getting a bit better). There were two extremes, the "model students" and the "faulty students,"(direct translations) and everyone else was just somewhere in between.

The hierarchy of high school students goes Kids with rich parents(because the parents can give money under the table to teachers or can pay for gangsters to protect their children)>the good fighters>everyone else, including the model students

The main fight in the movie is about the place of the "King" of the high school. The King is basically the school prom king+the bully of the school. The power of the King stronger was stronger back then because most of the schools were divided in boys and girls schools and the hierarchies were more intense.

A few comic factors in the movie have to do with the fact that Koreans like to ignore the truth and make themselves(and the stories they tell) seem bigger than the truth. That's why the stories the boys tell each other about the fights are so comically exaggerated. In real life, the exaggerations wouldn't be near as great, so it's pretty sarcastic for the director to express it that way.

The movie's also funny in the fact that the Kings are usually very (overly) serious about the power they hold. Basically, actual kings in real life/Joongpil equals beer-bellied middle-aged men who still think they're hot and hold a lot of authority over other people/Homer Simpson of The Simpsons.

I don't know how the Eng subs are because I watched it without any, but I can assure you that the subs can't capture what the Korean in this movie feels like. It's hard to translate this movie because most of the language that gives this movie it's spunk is slang used by high schoolers.
