Mr. Go (미스터 고)

미스터 고 (Mi-seu-teo Go)

Directed by Kim Yong-hwa (김용화)

Screenplay by

Comedy Drama

Release date in South Korea :

"Mr. Go" is a co-production between South Korea and China.
Young circus ringmaster Wei Wei has only bat-swinging gorilla Ling Ling to depend on as her only family member and friend when her grandfather dies in the Great Sichuan Earthquake, leaving behind an insurmountable debt. When a loan shark threatens to sell Ling Ling and the circus kids to cover the debt, Wei Wei has no choice but to allow Ling Ling to be scouted in the Korean Baseball League by the materialistic sports agent Sung.

Ling Ling, now dubbed ‘Mr. Go’, becomes an instant hit with fans and leads his team Doosan to a miraculous winning streak. No pitcher can stand up to Mr. Go’s powerful single-handed swing, and they watch helplessly as the ball flies out of the park. His popularity grows so immensely that even the fans of his opposing teams cheer for him, and single handedly attracts worldwide media attention to the league. Wei Wei and Sung are stunned and blinded by the sudden success, and neglect to detect Ling Ling’s worsening knee injury, just as Japanese clubs are drafting ground breaking trade propositions…

  • [HanCinema's Hall of Fame Review] "Shiri"

    In the Spotlight this Week: "Shiri" (1999) by Kang Je-gyu Kang Je-gyu's "Shiri" was a landmark feature that stands as Korea's first real blockbuster. The film sold over 6.2 million admissions during its run in 1999, an astonishing feat that broke the shackles on big-budget Korean films and represents a critical moment in Korea's film history. Kang made his debut three years before "Shiri" with "The Gingko Bed" (1996), a fantasy romantic epic that was heralded for its special effects and was also one of country's most successful films at the time. Since "Shiri", Kang has chosen to remain in the filmic fog of war, directing both the acclaimed "Taegukgi" (2004 - 11.7 million admissions) as well as the less successful "My Way" (2011 – 2.1 million). Kang may have fallen from grace somewhat with his last film "My Way" (which failed to make a profit on its $24 million production costs; the film made only $16M) and with this year's fantastical flop "Mr. Go" (which he produced), however Kang's filmography still remains an impressive one that has helped challenge and re-define the conditions and profitable potential of the once illusive Korean blockbuster,...More
  • [HanCinema's Hall of Fame Review] "200 Pounds Beauty"

    In the Spotlight this Week: "200 Pounds Beauty" (2006) by Kim Yong-hwa Earlier this year Korea put out its first 3D tech-tank with "Mr. Go", an expensive experiment that was truly fantastical but still failed to capture the imagination of the Korean public. The film recovered just over a third of its $22.5 million price tag, and some might ask why such a gorilla was even allowed out of its cage in the first place. In 2011 Kim also help produced "My Way", another apparent cash cow that failed to come in for the slaughter. So while big-budget blockbusters may not appear to be Kim's forte, he did managed to find the right stuffing in his comedies "Take Off" (2008) and "200 Pounds Beauty" (2006),...More
  • [HanCinema's Box Office Review] 2013.08.30 - 2013.09.01

    The French-American caper thriller "Now You See Me" walked away with the bulk of the ticket sales this past weekend, displacing the Korean features and their impressive reign during the month of August. Louis Leterrier's internationally cast hit claimed 626,867 (25%) in a tightly contested scrap at the top, bring its total tally in Korea to over 2 million admissions. Huh Jung's "Hide and Seek" narrowly missed out on a third consecutive top finish, but did manage to add 563,251 (22.8%) ticket stubs. Huh's debut film has now collected over 5 million admissions since its release earlier this month,...More
