London Korean Film Festival


Action-maestro Ryoo Seung-wan launched onto the Korean cinema scene in 2000 with this sensational debut that was made on a budget of just 65 million won (£45,000) over a period of three years as four short films that were then woven together.


In these four different parts, the film follows the lives of two young men – Suk-hwan (played by Ryoo) and Sung-bin (Park Sung-bin) – when Sung-bin accidentally kills another student in a brawl in a billiard room. Sung-bin spends seven years in jail, and is then sucked into the criminal underworld, while Suk-whan becomes a cop.
