Rough Cut 2008 (South Korea), also known as A Movie Is A Movie is South Korea drama premiere on Sep 11, 2008
Gang Pae has risen to the #2 rank in his mafia organization by using unflinching violence. Even though he has made his name by his violent nature, Gang Pae has a softer side and loves nothing more than to catch a matinee showing all by himself. Meanwhile, Su Ta is a popular actor who has a similar violent edge. Su Ta has already knocked one actor out of commission while filming a fight scene.
One night, Gang Pae hears that Su Ta is drinking in the same bar and he orders one of his men to get Su Ta's autograph. The short-tempered Su ta refuses and this leads to a confrontation between Gang Pae and Su Ta.
A few days later, Su Ta critically injures another actor while filming a fight scene. Filming now comes to a halt, because no other actors are willing to perform alongside the short-tempered movie star. Su ta then thinks backs to his confrontation with Gang Pae and recalls Gang Pae mentioning he performed as an extra in a film before. He then contacts Gang Pae and offers him the co-starring role. Gang Pae is willing to take the part, but only if they are to do the fight scenes for real.
