Storyline

Song Byungtae is an outcast at his school, whose daily routine consists of being pounded around the clock. To break free from this vicious cycle, he reads books upon books on martial arts and fighting techniques, but to no avail. Then, one day, he stumbles upon a strange man dwelling in the largest suite of Daemyung Study Room. The man is a master of fighting, armed with wise sayings begot from experience and the charisma of a true champion! Finally, the master has arrived! Oh Pansu.

Fifteen years ago, he was a renowned fighter, nationally recognized as one of the greatest brawlers of all time.

Karate kid meets Ichi the Killer
16 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a fantastic movie filled with plenty of action and humor. To sum up, I'd say it kind of like a cooler, more realistic, much much more violent version of the karate kid. This is one of my all-time favorite films. The characters were well cast and each has their own back story which pulls you effortlessly into the centre of the storyline. While you wont have to leave your brain at the door, you also wont need to pay attention to every single detail to thoroughly enjoy this movie. The director used a very interesting style of point of view filming which makes it seem as though you are growing with the main character through his experiences of his everyday life. This movie deserves a solid 10 in my opinion, as I can find nothing that should have been done differently.
