Synopsis[edit]

Tae-soo is a tough and loyal man who grows up to become a gangster meanwhile Woo-suk is a smart guy with firm moral values, who grows up to become a prosecutor. Hye-rin who is a beautiful and spirited daughter of a very wealthy casino owner, is a classmate of Woo-suk in college. She was introduced to Tae-soo via Woo-suk and they subsequently fall in love.

This drama was the turning point for the young budding democracy in Korea as it dealt with the Kwangju rebellion in 1980. What happened was the subsequent massacre of hundreds of innocent people. The horrific scenes of those people being murdered touched off a deep sense of shock and grief for the Koreans at that time. After this drama went on air, there were more films that were made dealing with this very subject, such as The Petal (1996) and Peppermint Candy (2000). It also put ex-President Chun Doo-hwan who was responsible for the massacre, into jail.
