Enrolling into a commercial high school in Busan, Jjang-goo joins a school gangster club called ' Monster '. It wasn’t something he volunteered for; rather, it was natural to join such a club at that time. Like a rite of passage, he becomes a man through the process. Actor Jeong Woo, who acts as Jjang-goo in the film, came up with the idea, and director Lee Seong-han completed the scenario to show another growth story of a man. Such a story is similar to what was previously seen in "Friend" (2001, Kwak Gyeong-taek) and "Once Upon A Time In Highschool" (2004, Yoo Ha). However, instead of incorporating a direct and rough portrayal of violence, Wish calmly shows how violence is permeated in everyday life and how violence is indistinguishable from everyday life in Korean society.
