At a time when students had to fasten their collars and crease their slacks till they're razor-sharp, these four friends strutted around in their own custom-fashioned uniforms. They walked the streets with their heads held high, shoulders straight, and chests out, fearing nothing when they were together. Joon Suk, a son of a vigilant gang boss; Dong Su, the only son of an undertaker; Sang Taek, a diligent student; Joong Ho, who never keeps his mouth shut. Those are the gang of friends who share their fantasies about a naked woman on the porn magazine and their awe at Bruce Lee's Kung Fu. Each of their lives takes different turns as they grow up, and their paths cross in conflict with each other. Joon Suk becomes the leading henchman of his father's crime ring, and Dong Su is serving for Joon Suk's rival gangs. Sang Taek and Joong Ho find themselves helplessly watching their two best friends wield knives at each other. (Source: AsianWiki) Edit Translation

As I am going to watch Friend 2, it made sense that I at least watch the beginning. Not a movie I'd watch again because of the sheer brutality! The acting was excellent as you got to watch friends go down the path of a gangster (except for one) as well as the camaraderie and friendship as it morphed. But one thing for sure, if you are looking for romance, forget it. This movie is not for you. If you are looking for a movie that is definitely reminiscent of The Godfather, Goodfellas, you might be interested.

A very brilliant movie.

The storyline is perfectly done, it really build up our emotion to see the friendship of those 4 friends. The story is not lacking nor exaggerated. It also have unpredictable storyline which you cannot expect it.

The story have combination of action, friendship and a bit of suspense.

The acting also are superb. Jang Dong Gun played his roles well in this movie, one of his best performance.

Oh Young Su as a gangster & loyal friend also makes me cry for him.

What I like from this movie??

-the flow of the story

-the two main characters,(Jong Suk & Dong Su)

-the climax which brilliantly done.
