Yet the film leaves you with an odd sense of emptiness.

Sporting perpetual bruises on his face, he spends his free time reading martial arts manuals and taking fighting lessons from various adults in town, in a desperate attempt to learn how to defend himself. One day, at a private reading room, he comes across an eccentric old man named Pan-su who possesses an amazing skill for fighting.
It's not that he is powerfully acrobatic or unnaturally strong, it's that he is a seasoned expert in down-to-earth, realistic modes of fighting. Pan-su somewhat reluctantly takes Byung-tae under his wing and starts to teach him what he has learned about fighting and about life.
Nonetheless, people in the film industry were sounding alarm bells by the end of the year.
