He's the only son of a mother who runs a hair salon while also being the "best fighter" of Moonduk High School. His name's Joong-pil, and his days are really tough. But the most important part of his day is going to school. Firstly, to meet the expectations of his followers and to frequently make his presence known, he has to fight other groups trying to take over his position. He also has to look after the rooftop of the school building which is used as their hideout.
But one day, Cupid's arrow unexpectedly strikes Joong-pil's heart who before had nothing to worry about and fear. It's Min-hee, the prettiest girl of the neighborhood girls high school, Jeonglan. But not long before his pink puppy love starts, his cozy life becomes threatened by a newcomer. One day, Joong-pil hears that a transfer student named Sang-man suddenly appeared like a gushing storm and wants to take over the school. Not only the students, but even his righthand man Soo-dong try to incite a fight between Joong-pil and Sang-man, which would become a legend in itself. But strangely enough, Joong-pil seems to avoid getting into a fight with Sang-man. But two kings can¡¯t exist in one land, and the showdown draws closer...

Okay, this was toooooooo cute. I loved the story. Okay and I just love Ryoo Seung Beom.

The action wasn't all that but it really wasn't about that. The "king" of the school falls in love with a nerdy girl from another school. He slowly changes and does whatever he can to meet her and be with her. I really think the changes were a bit much for him because I don't really see that in modern society a person would change that much. But it was nice to see a guy go all out for a girl that wouldn't be a typical ideal for a guy of his stature.

There were many funny moments, this was a comedy ya know? Bong Tae-gyu was a hoot, as usual, who was a porno fiend. He and his friends made their own porno comics and sold them to other students. The antics they went through was hilarious.

This was a happy movie with an interesting twist at the end. Not what I expected but it wasn't a crappy ending....thank the Lord!!
