to develop Gangnam into the new Seoul.

This film dramatizes events

that took place in Gangnam.

All characters and situations depicted

in this film are a work of fiction.

This region is all Gangnam.

It's got easier access to Seoul

than other satellite cities.

It's the golden goose.


The land is pure gold

it looks ripe for picking.

How did you like Northern Seoul?

Too close to North Korea.

As a business move

it must be out of their reach.

Let's go with this one.

Put together an epic plan, Moon.

GANGNAM BLUES Uncut version.



Son of a...

Hold up, man.

Honey, come here!

Wanna be taken away?

There's nothing in there.

Shut the f*ck up.

Hey, you!

Jong-dae! Run!





- Shit!

- Run!

Son of a bitch.

Stop there!

Fucking asshole.



Look at it

don't you see the scale?

You take me for a blind?

What did you say?

You messed with the scale!

You little shit!

- F*ck, man.

- "F*ck"?!

Hey! Bro!

Don't, just chill.

You fucking shit!

Written and directed by YOO HA.

So fucking cold,

why is the spring so cold?

Fucking hell...

Building Demolition Notice.

Where are we supposed to go?

Why should we leave?

We gotta hold out

I can't stand it!

Another way to use a bulb!


You'll get electrocuted.

Better than freezing to death.

Fucking hell...

When will we sleep

in a warm house?


Why don't we work

at a factory in Seoul?

Idiot, they won't hire

anyone without an ID.

We could go out with a bang.


Let's rob a bank.

It'll get us a nice new home.

A private room for sure.

In jail.

So fucking cold...

Who the f*ck? Sons of bitches!

- F*ck off!

- Who the f*ck are they?

We told you to leave months ago!

F*ck off!


Mister, stop!

- Mister!

- Stop it!

It's our home!

You wanna get yourself killed?!

That asshole... Pull him down!

Shit! Son of a bitch!


I'm relieved already.

Sit down.

Jang Duk-jae, the muscle

Yang Ki-taek, the brain.

Nam Soon-chm, the manpower.

As you may have heard,

just crash the convention.

The election must be interrupted.

Yes, sir.

Once you wrap this up,

you'll get the West Seoul

business permits.

There'll be plenty of work.

Councilor Suh.

After the job's done,

how should we divide the permit?


This is all for the good

of our country!

Let's talk about that later.

Split the permit

equally between you three

I got work in MD

so come see me too.

Raise your glasses.

Jang and Yang are involved,

so do it right.

We gotta get into

Seoul this time.

Please reconsider.

About what?

With politicians involved

I don't think this is our fight.

Kil-su, we just need the permit

from councilor Suh.

Grow some gangster balls.

Son of a bitch!

They got work tomorrow.

As you were.

You fucking pest!

How dare you raise your hand!

Fearless young fucks.

Please forgive us

something came over us.

Fucking idiots

I'd like to see you try again

let's see it!

I'm on the phone, asshole!

What about Younghwa boys?

Okay, I got it.

Afternoon, boss.

Got everyone?

I could only gather

40 or so, boss.

No more?

Even if we get the young'uns,

there's no more.

Who are they?

They're nuisances

from the shantytown.

We brought them for re-education.

Put them on the bus.



Come to Seoul with me.

My stomach...

So much money

for filling in for a fight.

More than what we make

in a month.


Now that we're homeless

should we join the gang?

Dream on.

- They don't accept ragmen.

- You can take a beating.

If you take all their hits
