Brief Synopsis :
Kwak Kyoung-taek, a director known for brooding and melancholy tales like the box-office hit "Friend" and last years "Champion" returns with "Ddonggae (Mutt Boy)" a comical story about lovable losers in a small Kyongsang Province town.
Ddonggae, a slang meaning mutt or mongrel in Korean, is what everyone calls Chol-min (Jung Woo-sung), a charming slacker of a character who sometimes doesn't seem like he's quite all there. With his sleepy eyes and wild hair, Ddonggae wanders around town like a sulky hound dog in search of his master.
He might seem a bit slow, but there's one thing Ddonggae does better than anyone around. Like a superhero who doesn't seem quite aware of the powers he possesses, Ddonggae transforms into a lightning-quick fighter when threatened. Our hero is soon joined by other warriors/losers of the neighborhood, to form a parallel-universe Justice League.
