Bicycle King Uhm Bok-Dong is a movie about Uhm Bok-Dong (Rain), the ‘Oriental Bike King’ who swept the entire East Asia by winning first place in the All-Chosun Automobile Competition for the first time as a Korean, beating out Japanese players in an era where hope was lost during the Japanese colonial period.
Uhm Bok-Dong (Rain), who delivered hope to the nation as much as Sohn Ki-jung at the time, is not well known about him. As a result, interest in the new character that ‘Bicycle King Uhm Bok-Dong’ will show has been pouring in.

Jung Ji-hoon, who plays the main character, Uhm Bok-Dong, and Lee Beom-soo, who appeared as producer and actor, said that they wanted to introduce the character of Um Bok-dong to the audience. He said he wanted to tell the story of Um Bok-dong, who gave hope to our people through his pure passion and effort for bicycles. However, contrary to their words, ‘Bicycle King Eom Bok-dong’ combines a fictional story with a real person, Uhm Bok-Dong, by introducing a fictional independence movement organization, the Patriotic Troupe, who aspires to independence instead of focusing on the character Eom Bok-dong.
