A famed daily sitcom that drew in huge ratings over its 167 episodes, Unstoppable High Kick
is a funny, offbeat comedy following the lives of the sprawling Lee family. It jump-started the careers of many now-famous actors, most notably Jung Il-Woo (Return of Iljimae
) and Kim Bum (Boys Over Flowers
and The Woman Who Still Wants to Marry
), and was popular enough to spawn a spin-off series, High Kick Through the Roof
. Part situational comedy, part family drama, it follows the loves and lives of the quirky Lee family through three generations.
Lee Yoon Ho (played by Jung Il Woo) is the resident "bad boy" of his high school - famed for his love of motorcycles and the unstoppable "high kick" with which he defeats opponents in his frequent fights. His younger brother and best friend Lee Min Ho (Kim Hye Sung from Kingdom of the Wind
), on the other hand, is a straight-A student who would rather spend his time building models and running web blogs. The two brothers are opposite in every way, but stand by each other through everything, as Min Ho deals with bullying and Yoon Ho fields an intense crush on his female teacher.
Their father (Jung Joon Ha), meanwhile, is a shiftless dreamer who lost his job due to wild investments and now allows his domineering doctor wife (Park Hae Mi) to bring home the cash. Grandfather Lee Soon Jae is the heart of the family, a feisty, money-hungry patriarch with a ridiculous addiction to pornography. Uncle Min Yong (Choi Min Yong) is a recently-divorced teacher who's enjoying his newly single status by toying with both his co-worker and his ex-wife. These are just a few of the characters in this warm-hearted, often witty story about the ups-and-downs, love triangles, and generation gaps of an unusual, rambunctious family.
