Sort of like the Korean Oliver Twist with more bullwhips

Not sure why there are no reviews for this excellent movie. It's the story of two childhood friends Tae-ho and Jong-du growing up after the conclusion of the Korean War.

Tae-ho and Jong-du are 18 years old and are struggling to find a way to survive. They start a shop selling stolen army supplies and try and prosper. Many challenges are encounter amongst them mob interference and the befriending the many other orphaned children littered thru the streets all trying to survive.

It's a pretty good movie yo, it's got a love interest and this crazy bull whip. If you like people muttering in Korean with English subtitles underneath them, then this is definitely up your alley
