Korean gangster film. Byung-du, a gangster since school, is moving his way up the ladder, but finds his violent lifestyle at odds with those he left behind, like his family his former sweetheart Hyun-Joo and his old friend Min-Ho, who wants to make a film about gangsters but needs his help to make it authentic, Entertaining enough, though it felt like too many plots from too many gangster films were being squeezed in to one storyline...- and then squeezed out again. And not a patch on A Bittersweet LIfe for showing a conflicted anti-hero. So if you haven't seen that yet, watch that instead. .
A desperate young gangster moves up the criminal ladder while simultaneously trying to reignite relationships from his more innocent school days. It desperately wants to be the Korean GODFATHER, but the characters/scenario/milieu aren't unique enough to justify its epic running time.
