Lim Dae Ho works as a bank teller while suffering through the grind of his miserable 9 to 5 existence. He is constantly bullied at work by his boss. Then one day, Dae Ho walks past a modest gym. The gym is for minor league professional wrestlers hoping to one day break into the big leagues. Dae Ho thinks back to his childhood days and his love for professional wrestling and in particular his love for the wrestler Ultra Tiger Mask. Dae Ho then decides to try out for wrestling. Although he's not talented enough to ever become a top wrestler, Dae Ho trains diligently at night. Eventually, he is turned into the villain known as "The Foul King". Edit Translation

Another Kong Sang Ho movie. His acting is confirmed to be good. No doubt a versatile actor. One of the best Korean actor.

The movie show a regular office workers that has been struggling and unhappy with job and life overall. Getting into evening sport somehow gave him sense of purpose and so much confident for his day job. Physical sport is not the strength of office worker, but his practice and determination put himself into the ring fight. He wasn’t the best, but he just keep going.

For people that have not gotten use to watching or involve in the ring fight, it might be hard to watch so much body slamming and hurting, wonder how a person can survive such horrible body damage.

Watch it as pure entertainment, its all just acting. It shows a day job office worker were able to stood up again his supervisor bully. He finally face those street bullies. . . He is still not perfect, still clumsy, still awkward toward ladies, still not success. I like that this movie is very raw and not making the main actor into a big hero or ultra unbelievable success.

Good watch
