At school, Jeong-gwon is second to none in fighting. Seong-hyun is also a famous fighter. But Gyeong-roh on the other hand is just a slick. These three called themselves the °No Touch Clan" since they are the untouchables in town.

After graduation these inseparable three start their own lives until Jeong-gwon returns to their hometown. Jeong-gwon, who became a real gangster, has just finished his time in jail.

But it is not just Jeong-gwon who has changed. The town itself has changed too. Buildings are going up on every corner as Mafia groups enter the town, trying to get hold of concessions and power.

A peaceful town is now swarming with gangs and groaning in chaos with these three friends accidentally getting caught in the middle of all this mess. (Source:

Okay, the movie was really interesting. I loved the action and the dialogue. Hey, Park Gun Hyung and Lee Cheon-hee weren't bad to look at. *whew!* I love a good student/mafia movie. LOL! My only beef....what in the hell was wrong with the ending? All of a sudden the tough guy is a weenie. Near the end, we learn some not so nice things about him. The ending was totally messed up...if you watch you'll see. So in all, the first 1.5 hours were wonderful and then *poof* the whole movie went to crap at the end.
