Making its Korean theatrical release next month is director Shin Dong-Yeob‘s latest film, which pretty much takes everything Phil Joanou did for Three O’Clock High and sets it 15 years later with an epic, grittier, grimmer toned feature thriller well-suited for fans of Korean cinema. Formerly titled The Punisher, Days Of Wrath sees actor Joo Sang-wook as a vengeful man unable to let go of the tragedy and victimhood of his high school past, brought on by his former bully who has since moved on to a more transient and fruitful life despite his forgotten evil ways.
Back in his high school days, Joon-Seok (Joo Sang-Wook) was bullied by Chang-Sik (Yang Dong-Geun). Because of this, Joon-Seok’s high school days were like a nightmare. Now, Joon-Seok finds it difficult to live a normal life due to the bullying. Meanwhile, Chang-Sik, who has forgotten what he did to Jeon-Seok, lives a relatively happy life. He is about to marry Ji-Hee (Lee Tae-Im). Joon-Seok will pay him back for all the misery.
