Su-ta is an aggressive and egotistical film star who has been pigeon holed into violent gangster film roles and his real life bar room brawls only seem to add to his fame. On set Su-ta cause a serious injury to another act in a stunt forcing the production to shut down as no other actor is willing to work with Su-ta. Gang-pae is the real life version of Su-ta's screen roles and has quickly made a name for himself in the criminal underworld. Being a huge secret film fan Gang-pae bumps into Su-ta and confesses the desire to be an actor. Eventually Su-ta decides to offer him a role but Gang-pae has one condition, that the fights are real and not faked.
This is a great debut film from one of Korea's rising directors, Jang Hoon, who has recently direcrted Secret Reunion with Song Kang-ho which is playing at this year's London Korean Film Festival at the ICA.
