Choi Ik Ho (Lee Jung Jae) is a former footballer and mixed martial artist who finds himself dragged into a deadly game run that could cost him his life.
The suspense begins when his brother and coach disappears and is presumed dead. The police suspect foul play and arrest Choi Ik Ho.
Enter Ace (Shin Ha Kyun), a shadowy figure who tells the former sports star that the only way to save his brother and stay out of jail is to follow his instructions – and those of another mysterious individual named Soo Kyung (BoA).
Choi Ik Ho soon discovers he is trapped in a deadly gambling ring operated for the behalf of some of South Korea’s richest people, who bet on the success (or failure) of his rescue efforts.
Things come to a head when Soo Kyung tells him the only way to save his brother and clear his name is to complete a potentially lethal mission in a packed soccer stadium during a crunch match.
“Big Match” is a 2014 South Korean thriller movie directed by Choi Ho.
