"No hereditary guilt, no hereditary guilt. If there is money there is no sin, without money it becomes a sin…"

Gunshots ringing!
Kang Hyuk's cry echoes across the country through the media such as TV, and Kang Hyuk makes the final choice with his gang…


A perfect blend of true story and fiction.
We challenge new box office myths with wild male action and differentiated humanism!

The movie <Holiday> is based on a true story, but it will add to the fun of the movie by adding a lot of fiction.
With the support of the city of Iksan, Jeollabuk-do, the 10,000-pyeong prison set built for the first time in Korea and a perfect reproduction of the time in 1988 will add to the realism of the play. The chase and escape plays will captivate the eyes and ears of the audience and show the essence of the 'human action noir' movie.
In addition, as it is based on a true story, it will attract the attention of the media and audiences from the stage of film production and cause a great topic. It will deliver an upgraded impression.
Now, the movie <Holiday> is about to challenge the 10 million box office success that <Silmido> and <Taegeukgi Flying> achieved with rough male action and differentiated humanism from existing movies!

有錢無罪, 無錢有罪!
His cry becomes an echo of the truth that reflects this era!

In October 1988, at a family home in Bukgajwa-dong, four fugitives, including Ji Kang-heon, confronted the police and held hostage for 16 hours. At the last moment of the hostage play, they shouted "有錢無罪 無錢有罪" to the police and the media surrounding them.
They weren't saying they were innocent. Just 'a world where people are not treated because of lack of money, a world where money can buy prosecutors and judges, a world where even if you commit a crime, you are innocent if you have money, and guilty if you don't have money'. was what I wanted to pay.
Although Ji Kang-heon was a criminal, his words raised an alarm in our society rotting due to corruption and aroused great sympathy for the common people, the weakest in our society, who have suffered from a sense of relative deprivation.
And even after 17 years have passed, the words he left behind in our society, which are still unchanging, are still echoing as echoes of the truth that reflect this era.

Even for a second… I want to die breathing fresh air!
The song of freedom sung at the end of one's life 'Holiday'

Ji Kang-heon, who could not even graduate from elementary school due to poor family circumstances, dreamed of becoming a poet and possessed persuasive skills. Above all, the fact that he did not touch the hostages with a respectful attitude during the hostage play several times, advised a fellow fugitive to surrender himself, and that the last hostage, Ko, tried to protect Ji Kang-heon, etc. became
On October 16th, he had a hostage play at a family house in Bukgajwa-dong and confronted the police, and he asked the police to play 'holiday' by the pop group Bee Gees. But, ironically, the song the police sang to Ji Kang-heon was the Scorpions' 'holiday'.
Why did Ji Kang-heon ask to play Bee Gees' 'holiday'?
Perhaps it was because he wanted to dream of freedom, even for just one moment, while listening to 'holiday', just like he said, "I want to die breathing fresh air for even one second."
Production company Hyunjin Cinema plans to use Bee Gees' 'holiday' as an insert song for the movie, and Ji Kang-heon will be able to hear Bee Gees' 'holiday', which was his last wish, even in the movie.
