San-hae has a habit for chasing unreachable dreams but never attaining them. His best friend, Sang-chul, is yet to find direction in his life but always lives by his life motto: to live and die for his friends. Dong-leung, a naive and timid student, consistently lacks the courage to live on his own and always submits to his father's orders. Although radically different in personalities, San-hae, Sang-chul, and Dong-leung are the best of friends. Then one day, while gambling on a card game, they inherit a run-down bar. Initially excited about their earnings, the three friends later realize that running a bar is far from easy. Then San-hae comes up with an idea to bring in customers; he decides to create a bartending extravaganza entitled "The Show", a brand new concept in Seoul during the 1970s.

Hm. This movie was actually pretty boring at the beginning. It was rather stupid. Sang-chul and his farting was ridiculous, NOT funny. If that was supposed to be a comedic wasn't.

There was a supposed romance between Sanae and Yun-hie but I felt nothing. He started out indifferent towards her. I have no clue when it became love. It was too weird. All of a sudden it was a Romeo and Juliet love story but I can't figure out when it happened. It wasn't a fun romance that left a bitter taste in my mouth.

The bottle tricks...were okay. Some came out clean where the others were fumblish.

Okay, this movie, after I've read what I've typed....sucked! Suck is a harsh word. This movie just wasn't fun like I hoped it would be.

Watch at your own risk. You've been warned.
