Young Ki (Jo Jin Woong) is a mobster who dreams of one day living a perfect life.
However, he has been lurching from one calamity to the next. His latest disastrous attempt to strike it rich saw him steal a large sum of money from his boss, which he then used to fund a catastrophic stock investment that has left in knee-deep in debt.
He is also in trouble with the law and must perform community service as part of a criminal sentence.
However, this is when he luck changes – and when he meets a man named Jang Soo (Sol Kyung Gu), an affluent lawyer at a busy law firm.
Jang Soo has had a terrible shock – paralyzed from the neck down, he has now discovered that he is also terminally ill and has just a few months left to live.
He makes Young Ki an unconventional offer. If the mobster helps Jang Soo tick off all the items on his bucket list, the lawyer will hand over his entire life insurance fund to Yong Ki – a multi-million dollar sum.
Young Ki agrees – and the pair’s chaotic journey of discovery begins!
This movie was based on the 2011 French film “The Intouchables.”
“Man of Men” is a 2019 South Korean movie that was directed by Yong Soo.
