Invasion of Alien Bikini (에일리언 비키니)

에일리언 비키니 (E-il-li-eon Bi-ki-ni)

Directed by Oh Young-Doo (오영두)

Comedy Science-Fiction

75min | Release date in South Korea :

Synopsis
Directed by four filmmakers calling themselves Kino Mangosteen, “Invasion of Alien Bikini” arrives among a recent crop of B-movies that have been making a comeback this year.

A mixture of many sub-genres including sci-fi, romance and action, “Invasion of Alien Bikini” depicts a confrontation between a seemingly innocent young woman named Monica (Ha Eun-jeong) and a nerd named Young-gun (Hong Young-Guen) who fancies himself a crime fighting hero and even wears a superhero costume to disguise himself. When the two meet, Monica seems to be the victim of a mugging, but is actually being pursued by government agents who suspect she is being inhabited by an alien that wants to reproduce and take over the world. Young-gun takes Monica back to his apartment to help her recover, and that’s when the fun starts. The alien inside of Monica goes on the prowl to seduce our young hero, who, although attracted to Monica, wants to keep his virginity until he gets married with comic results as the two tussle over their conflicting desires.

Working with a low budget of 5 million won ($4,545), the members of Kino Mangosteen - Oh Young-doo, Ryoo Hoon, Hong Young-Guen and Jang Youn-jung - kept things simple by doing a lot of the work themselves. Oh wrote the screenplay, directed and participated in the editing process. Ryu was in charge of equipment rentals and Hong played the role of Young-gun in the film. Jang, who is Oh’s wife, produced the film and also served as a special effects makeup artist.

“Invasion of Alien Bikini” won the grand prize at Japan’s Yubari Fantastic Film Festival in February and was a sell out during all three screenings at last month’s Puchon International Fantastic Film Festival.

  • [HanCinema's Hall of Fame Review] "Save the Green Planet": The End is Nigh

    2014/07/05,
    In the Spotlight this Week: Jang Joon-hwan's "Save the Green Planet" Aliens, kidnapping, and torture make for terrific film fodder, but a balance must be struck in order not to over/undercook this volatile cinematic concoction. Too much comedy and the intensity may be compromised, and if the horror is left to broil the dish may become too dark to digest. We might assume that, given the country's hesitancy with science fiction, and its tendency to over-salt on silliness, that Korean cooks may be ill suited to even supervise such convergence. But a brilliant balance was indeed found when, in 2003, director Jang Joon-hwan made his daring debut with the delightfully delirious "Save the Green Planet",...More
  • [HanCinema's Film Review] The Halfhearted Sexual Revolution in "You Pet"

    2012/09/22,
    Film: "You Pet" Director: Kim Byeong-gon Stars: Kim Ha-neul, Jang Geun-seok, Yoo Tae-joon and Jeong Yoo-mi Review Score: 3 / 5 Also Try: "My Sassy Girl" and "Invasion of Alien Bikini" The Korean 'sexy-comedy' has always perhaps slanted towards the humour and light-heartedness of the spectrum; with laughable anecdotes and silliness pulling rank, or at least ratings, over the more scandalous elements in the genre. In Kim Byeong-gon's "You Pet", the director has minimised any possible provocative aspects of Yayoi Ogawa's popular Japanese Manga, from which the film was based but also given a distinct 'Korean-ness'. Still, it's hard to deny the film's, perhaps not so subtle, sadomasochistic suggestions as it plays with sexual power in modern Korea,...More

    2012/03/24,
    Oh Young-Doo's "Invasion of Alien Bikini" made its Korean premier at the 15th Puchon International Fantastic Film Festival, fitting nicely into the programs mesh of strange and bizarre films from around Asian. This over-the-top erotic comedy has been screened at a number of film festivals around the world, even being honoured with prizes at the 21st Yubari International Fantastic Film Festival in Japan as well as at the 44th Sitges Film Festival in Spain. With a working budget of $4,545, Young-doo's film did well within these constraints but was ultimately unable to find suitable glue to hold all the ridiculousness together,...More
