About This DVD
Renowned Korean-Japanese director Sai Yoichi makes his Korean-language film debut with the hardboiled, hard-hitting Soo. Sai, who is billed under his Korean name Choi Yang Il for this film, is of course no stranger to gritty action, having directed Blood and Bones. This time, he takes the action one step further with Soo, an unflinching tale of violence and vengeance. Based on a comic by Shin Young Woo, the film stars Ji Jin Hee (Old Garden) in his first action role, along with Kang Su Yeon (Springtime of Mimi and Cheol Su), Moon Sung Keun (Hanbando), Lee Ki Young (Marathon), and Oh Man Seok (A Cruel Attendance). In a marked departure from his previous films, Ji Jin Hee takes on the challenge of playing twin brothers, one of whom embarks on a brutal quest for revenge, a process apparently too bloody for the ratings board as the film only managed to pass on the third submission. Dark, raw, and harrowing, Soo depicts revenge without the romanticism, serving up an intense, haunting story and punishingly realistic and primal action.
Twin brothers Tae Jin and Tae Soo grew up in the streets together, but they get separated when Tae Jin gets caught by a gangster for stealing. Years later Tae Jin (Ji Jin Hee) has grown up to become a police officer, while Tae Soo (also Ji Jin Hee) is now a top assassin. The brothers finally reunite after two decades of separation, only for Tae Jin to be brutally murdered in front of Tae Soo's eyes. Determined to avenge his brother's death, the guilt-ridden Tae Soo assumes Tae Jin's identity and sets out on a blood-slashing path for revenge and redemption.
