Because of the Chinese, she always won the silver medal.One day, 현정화 and 라분희 make a with
team named ‘Korea’. Their different practice methods, life style, and way of talking

Nick Fury collect heroes one by one to make a team called the “Avengers”
Black Widow-assassin for male audience, Hulk-center of power, Captain America-old but strong,

but the team re-assemble. Triggered by the death of a man. the “avengers” win the war.
the plot is very simple. and story is a little important for me. but action scenes are very important.
Even though all of the heros get a share of attention, I was a fan of the Hulk.
