London Korean Film Night: Friend (2001)


As teenage boys, they fight together, fall for the same girl and form rivalries that will haunt them for the rest of their lives. Joon-suk is the leader of the gang and he looks after Sang-taek, the timid bookworm. Dong-su is the brooding rebel and Joong-ho is the clown. A few years later, Joong-ho and Sang-taek go onto college and eventually lose touch with Joon-suk and Dong-su. Now in his twenties, Sang-taek reunites with the drug addicted Joon-suk and hears that Dong-su is in jail. To his surprise, his first love, Jin-sook is now living with the violent tempered Joon-suk. Years elapse again and now Joon-suk has inherited his father's organization while Dong-su has become his biggest rival. Sang-taek visits them again before taking off to study abroad and cannot help dreading the outcome for his dearest friends.
