MAN OF MEN
MAN OF MEN

Young-ki (Cho Jin-Woong) is a low-life gangster who wants to turn his life around and strike it big. Jang-soo (Sol Kyung-gu) is a ruthless, high-profile lawyer who discovers that all the money in the world won’t be able to cure him of his terminal illness.

Their paths cross when Young-ki is assigned to do court-ordered community service. Finding Young-ki’s unrefined manner refreshing and authentic, Jang-su asks Young-ki to help him complete his bucket list in return for a large portion of his life insurance money. In desperate need of fast cash, Young-ki accepts the offer but is unprepared for the consequences.

What follows is a light-hearted (at times bordering on the slapstick) but also profoundly life-changing journey into healing and camaraderie. Director Yong Soo’s debut film MAN OF MEN is a comedic crow-pleaser thanks to the masterful performances of veteran actors of Sol and Cho.
