The original story is about four friends who grew up together from high school. Two of the friends, Dong Su and Lee Jeong Suk, find different paths in life and become rivals. The sequel will be a continuation of the story. Sung Hoon, the son of Dong Su (not in the sequel), meets Jeong Suk in prison and is involved in a series of incidents.

A film that is so my cup of tea, I want to write a 'Thank you' letter to the writers, directors, editors and Kim WooBin, who was the reason I actually payed attention to this and decided top watch it.
Speaking of Kim WooBin, I would like to start of with a few sentences to praise his acting here. The director of the movie praised him in an interview about his acting read more skills and how he worked in action scenes, and I would like to praise him on that as well. A role like this - tough gangster - fits him better than a forever-stuck-in-high-school ones and I am now looking forward to his next movie, in which he will be as bad ass as in this one.
Continuing about the cast - PERFECT! Even minor characters were executed perfectly and extremely believably and really made me believe in what they were doing.
As for the plot, as in what they were doing, I have not seen Friend 1 yet, but I will see it very soon, and even though I didn't know the full back story, the flashbacks and back-stories helped perfectly, drawing the full picture. The plot was not messed up with billion parallel stories and was easy to follow, if one paid attention. Plus, the story-line made me think of several rather philosophical issues.
Might seem odd, that a movie about Korean gangsters can do that, but it made me think about a lot of things. When friendship and loyalty is pushed a side to gain power and money; when a line can be drawn in mad run for the previously mentioned; what is family - blood related one's, or those who run. starve and fight with you - these were the questions I thought about and couldn't come up with an answer, as that's how philosophy works.
Maybe if YOU, will watch it, you will find the answers of these questions or ask your own, but, indeed, this movie can not leave you indifferent.

      Yes, there are parts of the sequel that won't 100% make sense if you don't watch the first one.

    It's confusing with all the flashbacks.. also It wasn't that good at all. The acting was the only thing I can give 10/10! Overall is a 5 imo I expected more from this movie ;;

    I recommend watch first Friend (2001) and right after that this one...impact is better and you can feel underflows of second movie clearer. They are tied so tightly.
    Acting in both is good and directing is brilliant. You can see changes of time and in people and what despite that is sitll same.
