Description: Adolescence is one long, drawn-out nightmare for Byeong-tae. Quiet and introverted, he makes a perfect target for his school’s vicious bullies, all the more so when they catch on that his father is a policeman. Badly beaten up on a regular basis, Byeong-tae seeks a capable teacher in matters of physical combat. His quest remains a dead end until the day the mysterious Oh drifts into town. Little is known about Oh other than that he has a shady past and seeks to leave Korea as soon as he can. That, and the fact that when push comes to shove, Oh’s placid and distant front dissolves and his true nature as a fighter of unmatched skill and effectiveness comes ferociously forward. Initially, Oh rebuffs Byeog-tae’s pleading for lessons, telling him that it’s best not to fight at all. But as it becomes clear that the peaceful path won’t work, Oh begins to tutor the young man, not in specific techniques so much as in the underlying psychological necessity for great fighting skill – fearlessness. Cast: Jae Hee as Song Byung-tae (Hee Jae), Choi Yeo-jin as Young-ae, Baek Yun-shik as Oh Man-su, and more.
