Dae-Ho is an unproductive bank clerk who is late to work every morning and the object of his manager's frustrations. He was a fan of TV wrestling as a child, but can't get out of a headlock. He finds a local wrestling trainer and through a series of events eventually starts to train. He is slowly transformed as he begins his second job as the cheating villain wrestler known as the Foul King. He starts to stand up for himself in odd ways that are not really in his own best interest. Events get out of hand as conflicting influences come together.

20 Movies to Approach New (South) Korean Cinema (20 movies items)

"Usually people mention Jee-woon's first movie ("The Quiet Family"), but I think this second one was better thought and funnier. It's a classic zero to hero story, except it's actually a zero to...still zero sarcastic comedy. A curiosity: I think this was the first movie featuring the always-fun-to-watch Song Kang-ho in a leading role. He was in a lot of movies in this list and basically in every historically-relevant-to-give-birth-to-the-new-korean-cinema movie; he's probably the biggest south"
