Art of Fighting

Song Byungtae is an outcast at his school, whose daily routine consists of being pounded around the clock. To break free from this vicious cycle, he reads books upon books on martial arts and fighting techniques, but to no avail. Then, one day, he stumbles upon a strange man dwelling in the largest suite of Daemyung Study Room. The man is a master of fighting, armed with wise sayings begot from experience and the charisma of a true champion! Finally, the master has arrived! Oh Pansu. He's the legendary street-fighter who has taken to a life of hiding and pinching pennies, longing for the day he'll get to soak up the sun on the shores of Mexico. Fifteen years ago, he was a renowned fighter, nationally recognized as one of the greatest brawlers of all time. He's a man to get bored easily, yet he catches a glimpse of Byungtae's hidden potential. However, it's not an easy task to rid Byungtae of the fear that's been a part of him all his life. Would Byungtae, with his lack of experience and fighting techniques, be able to stand tall as a true fighter in this arena called life? What can Pansu do to help this unfortunate soul?
