[HanCinema's Film Review] "Death in Desert" 2016/03/19,
Do-kyeong (played by Kim Min-gi) is a doctor preparing to get married to the daughter of a colleague. Somewhat inconveniently, this happens simultaneously with his rekindling an old relationship with Ga-in (played by Ko Won). At the start of "Death in Desert", Do-kyeong passively aggressively calls the affair off after the extended opening sex scene while Ga-in increasingly pathetically begs for him to treat her like a partner rather than a sex toy. Rather tellingly, Do-kyeong manages to come off as the more sympathetic person in this situation even though he's the cheater,...More

[HanCinema's Film Review] "Total Messed Family" 2014/03/22,
Won-man (played by Son Byeong-ho) makes a living filing frivolous lawsuits and bullying people into paying him to go away. He is hated by, well, pretty much everybody, especially his son Cheon-bong (played by Kim Min-gi), who straight up fled the household to avoid dealing with Won-man's abuse. But the time is reckoning at hand- having exhausted the patience of all his non-relatives, Cheon-bong returns home with his hugely pregnant girlfriend. By the way, they still have vigorous loud sex every night.
This is all very much to the consternation of Se-joo (played by Han Bo-bae), the daughter of Won-man and younger sister of Cheon-bong,...More
[HanCinema Report] JIFF: Day Seven 2013/05/01,
Due to the sheer quantity of artistic and experimental films, I think I may have been pulling punches a bit with my reviews. Now, to be perfectly clear, My Place and Dancing Woman are both absolutely brilliant and unlike anything I've ever seen before- but as I come more and more to the end, I see clearly that the Jeonju International Film Festival has had as many hits as misses.
My first film today, "Total Messed Family", typifies a lot of that. It's a comedy about the reactions a family has when their son, a runaway, returns home with his pregnant girlfriend,...More
