In this arguably the funniest and silliest Korean movie in recent memory, man-child Man-seob returns to college after completing compulsory military service. Restless and bored, he campaigns to convert a tennis court into a jokgu (a volleyball/soccer hybrid invented in Korea) court. A tournament is organized, and Man-seob aims to shine on the battlefield and score the heart of a gorgeous girl along the way. Hilarious, satirical, athletic, with a spark of romance, The King of Jokgu reignites all the youthful passion lost in everyday life.
