Storyline

1st Street is a curious neighborhood untouched by the aids of modern living like proper plumbing and Internet. Pilje cruises into 1st Street with the intention to drive out its inhabitants and make way for a huge redevelopment project. As soon as he gets there, his plans start to unravel. He meets Myeongnan, a female boxer with the dream of becoming an East Asian boxing champion, and a host of colorful characters who turn his life upside down. Myeongnan works hard to attain her dream, training constantly and doing most of her talking with her fists. Myeongnan and Pilje clash, and he often finds himself on the receiving end of her ferocious punches. Instead of shunning the outsider, Myeongnan and the rest of the villagers warm to him. He is even thought of as Superman by the children of 1st Street after he enables the village's water supply and performs roof repairs. Pilje is drawn to these colorful misfits and begins to rethink his plans to destroy the zany town that they love. Written by CJ Entertainment

it's good
17 April 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I have to say that this movie is good. I think that the story line and the character context is very good in this movie and it shows how characters develop their personality as the movie goes on.

In the beginning of the movie, the character Pil-je (Chang Jung Lim)was a douche-bag. I hated this character because he was like 'mr know it all'. So i really hated this character. As the movie goes on, I started to like this character a lot. The reason being is because staying in the slum, he grew a friendship with them and turns out that he's not a bad person. Making friends with the people in the slum shows what a kind person he really is. I also found this character really funny, he made me laugh out loud. (Literally)

The kids were superb actors. They really showed emotions on the screen. They even showed respect to Pil-je who was bossing them around and giving orders but they called him 'superman'.

Now I'm going to be honest. I didn't care about the whole boxing thing. About Myung-ran (Ji-won Ha) becoming the Asian champion, it really didn't matter to me. I was just concentrating and fascinated about what happened in the slums.

So overall this movie is worth watching. Recommended. 8/10
