The film "Start-Up" introduces the perfect chemistry by Jung Hae-in and Park Jung-min.
"Start-Up" is the story of a bob-haired chef named Geo-seok (Ma Dong-seok), a half-baked rebel named Taek-il (Park Jung-min) and an eager rebel named Sang-pil (Jung Hae-in), who just throws himself into society.
Against his mother's advice, Go Taek-il leaves home and ends up working at a Chinese restaurant run by a huge man named Geo-seok. At the same time, his friend Woo Sang-pil starts working for private loan business. The two young men experience the ups and downs of being adults.
After winning six awards for Best New Artist at various film awards, Park Jung-min has managed to successfully undergo character changes in "Keys to the Heart" and "Svaha: The Sixth Finger". Meanwhile, Jung Hae-in has had pretty good reviews from "Pretty Sister Who Buys Me Food", "One Spring Night" and "Tune in for Love". These two appear as best friends.
Taek-il runs into people he would have never imagined after he leaves his home without a purpose and arrives at a Chinese restaurant. Sang-pil heads out into society in his eagerness to make money as quickly as possible. They are complete opposites of each other, but they think alike, and Park Jung-min and Jung Hae-in bring about energetic vibes into the film.
