Cine-Cafe Mornings

At 9:30 a.m. on Wednesday

Samsung Raeminan Cultural Center

This charity movie session will screen the 2004 black comedy "The President's Barber". Starring Song Kang-ho and Moon So-ri, the movie combines fact and fiction to recreate Seoul in the 1960s and '70s. It takes that politically volatile period that includes the nation's chaotic first presidential election, ceaseless civic demonstrations, the authoritarian rule of Park Chung-hee and a McCarthy-esque fear of everything Communist and filters it through the experience of Han-mo (played by Song), a simpleminded barber who owns a shop next to Chong Wa Dae. Becoming the barber for President Park and his staff members fills Hanmo with pride, but the duties end up involving the barber and his family in internal political struggles. The film also draws a parallel between the barber's growing relationship with his son (Lee Jae-eung) and the transformation South Korea undergoes under Park's authoritarian regime. Admission to each session is 10,000 won, which will be donated to a local charity organization. Located near Anguk Station on subway line 3. Details: 011-748-1972 or Open the link
