Plot & Details
A ruthless gangster who uses his brutality to rise through the ranks suddenly finds his life complicated on all sides in this hit Korean crime drama directed by Han Jae-rim (Rules of Dating) and starring Song Kang-ho) (The Host). In-gu (Jae-rin) is a low-level gangster who's more than willing to crack some skulls in order to get an edge on the competition. Lately, In-gu's life has been a steady regiment of roughing up rivals with steel pipes, and busting up construction sites with baseball bats. Upon recovering from his battle wounds, In-gu stumbles out of the smoky karaoke rooms where he spends the majority of his time, and makes his way back home to visit with the family. In-gu's daughter detests her father for strong-arming her teachers with cash and threats, and his wife has made it clear that he's no longer welcome in what was once the couple's bed. Soon, a rapidly snowballing series of events both at home and at on the job find the hapless gangster beset by intense complications that could finally drag him under.
