It makes me weird why they put PUNCH for its international title, just put WANDEUKI (taegukki?) its more suitable! Maybe its a metaphor, that boy use his punch to change his life! (right?).
What a superb director and screenwriter?! They can put on many character and they developed them well until we get nailed to know each character's story. This movie actually not depict a life of zero-boy who become hero after joined kickboxing (cliche?). This is heartwarming movie, mixed of many theme - drama,comedy,lovey dovey,religious,action. Whaaa... they did so well.
Its hard to find a live action movie without antagonist (except ghibli) nowadays. I recommend you this stuff. I tell you some synopsis, its about a poor-stupid boy who have no friend,no girlfriend,money,no mommy and his main plan how to get all that important stuff. Exciting... do I make you excited?
