There ar four characters in the film, Pungsan, Beesang, Beeyoung the Beesang's younger brother, and Taebong. They are traveling to find those who are stronger than them, and their fights are so severe that it naver permits one slip. Although those duels of these street fighters on the rooftop of city buildings are similar to the city chivalry shown in Arahan Jangpang Daejakjeon by Seung-Wan Ryoo, the martial arts is more emphasized here. The director said he was influenced by Musasi Miyamoto, but it is a new verison of this genre trancing Hong Kong and Japanese style crossing the nationality. (Lee Eun-ju)
