Who thought bodyslams could be so inspirational? From director Kim Ji Woon comes The Foul King, a winning, no-holds-barred comedy starring Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance's Song Kang Ho. The film revolves around mild-mannered bank clerk Im Dae Ho (Song Kang Ho) who finds himself on the brink of a definite midlife crisis. At home, he has to suffer through constant badgering by his father, and at work, he just can't seem to bring himself to ask out the pretty colleague he's been pining away for all these years. Even worse, as the bank's worst-rated employee, he can't help but catch the unwanted attention of his ruthless boss (Song Young Chang), an intimidating bully who likes nothing better than to punish his underlings by putting them in inescapable headlocks! Clearly, Dae Ho is looking for some sort of escape from his stress-filled existence.
However, salvation finally comes in the unlikeliest of sources when Dae Ho happens upon a gym offering lessons in professional wrestling techniques. Initially, Dae Ho approaches the coach with the intention of discovering a way to escape his boss's brutal headlock, but as he starts to remember the heroes of his childhood, he becomes totally engrossed in the world of professional wrestling, finding it to be the confidence-boosting cure-all to the bulk of his various troubles. As he begins participating in low level wrestling matches on the indie circuit, he takes on the persona of the Foul King, a villain who'd do just about anything to beat his opponents. But when Dae Ho finds himself matched up against an up-and-coming professional wrestler, will he follow the script, take the fall, and put the emerging superstar over? Or will he try to win the day? Whatever his decision, the climactic match is an exhilarating bout that will leave audiences cheering! Thanks to a solid script and a wonderful performance by Song Kang Ho, The Foul King amounts to an oddly charming, fun-filled comedy with plenty of heart and soul!
