The movie ‘The Victory’ is released through Netflix.
‘Competition’ (director Kim Hyung-joo) is a film depicting the unavoidable match between two Korean Go legends, Jo Hoon-hyeon (Lee Byung-hun) and Lee Chang-ho (Yoo Ah-in), who were both master and disciple and rivals. It is the second film by director Kim Hyeong-joo, who previously presented ‘The Sheriff’, and the first film in which Lee Byung-hun and Yoo Ah-in work together.
Hoon-hyun Cho and Chang-ho Lee, who conquered the world when Go was hotter than the World Cup, are still legends and still active.
Lee Byung-hun, who plays Cho Hoon-hyeon, recognizes the talent of 10-year-old Lee Chang-ho right after achieving the world Baduk grand slam, and lives with him as a disciple and teaches him. Yoo Ah-in plays the role of Lee Chang-ho, a disciple who struggles hard to overcome his teacher Cho Hoon-hyeon, who is like a huge wall.
The appearance of the two actors in the still photo, which captures the moment just before the historic match between the teachers and students begins, creates tension with an atmosphere that seems to have returned to the 1990s.
Lee Byung-hun’s second film after ‘Squid Game’, Yoo Ah-in’s movie ‘#Alive’, series ‘Hell’ and movie ‘Seoul Grand Operation’ meet viewers all over the world again through Netflix. ‘Competition’ is produced by Wolgwang, the film company that made ‘Duke’, ‘The Prosecutor’, ‘The Sheriff’, and ‘Suriname’.
