A washed-up boxer, Jo Ha, has lived his life relying on nothing but his physical strength. His champion glory lasted only a moment, and now pride is all Jo Ha has. He runs into his mom who left him when he was little and comes to live with her and Jin Tae, the younger brother who always seems awkward except for when he plays the piano. The autistic savant, Jin Tae, shows brilliance in playing the piano and video games and cooking ramen. He is at first scared of his older brother, who insists on swinging his fists at people for what he wants. Reunited with each other, the two brothers learn what it is to be a family.
Cast & Credits
The acting was great. I have come to realize that characters with Autism in K-drama's and movies are the best I have seen yet. Park Jung Min who played Jin Tae is a great actor with a very wide range of skills from his other role. His big and small actions spoke to me the most in the movie because he captured the general sense of Autism with another small world of complexity (basically, I loved his portrayal of an autistic character with believable tendencies and savant syndrome).
I have to say Yoon Yeo Jung is probably one of my favorite aged actresses because she can do anything but the character that is headstrong but fragile and tries to hide hardship is my favorite of her characters. She did it again in this movie and I really hope she does many more.
The only one I had a problem with was Lee Byung Hun. Don't get me wrong, it wasnt his acting I had an issue with, it was the character. The character begged for more complexity. His character was dynamic but it took me so much to understand what he was doing and for his change to happen that, it didn't sit well with me. You may disagree and I don't blame you, it's just what I feel.
I love classical music so this was an amazing assortment of pieces. The music was great and I really enjoyed it but it gave off the old vibe again which I really hoped it wouldn't but it worked with how it was shot. I have to say, the music will certainly not turn you away from this movie.
Overall, I will most certainly watch this movie a couple more times to catch other aspects I may have missed and maybe I will come to understand the character I didn't so much like a bit more. I think you should watch this if you liked My Annoying Brother, I obviously did (at first for D.O. but later on for the plot).
