Screenplay by ,


127min | Release date in South Korea :

Lee Jong-se (Ahn Sung-ki) is a comedian working in a third-class cabaret with a dream of becoming a movie director. He goads Moon Do-seok (Bae Chang-ho) who runs a barber shop in the rural area to join him in a film, saying that he would put him in his movie. Moon Do-seok has always dreamed of becoming an actor and he immediately sells off his barber shop to follow Lee Jong-se around. Lee goes to a movie theater to catch a movie and coincidentally sits next to Oh Seon-yeong (Hwang Shin-hye). All of a sudden, she begins to kiss him during the movie. As it turns out, Oh Seon-yeong was running away from gangsters. After the movie, she decides to follow Lee to his house and hide out. Three people get together now and rub shoulders to make a movie themselves. One day, Lee is rehearsing for his stage at the cabaret and a soldier who escaped from the army (Son Chang-min) gives him a gun. Knowing this, Oh Seon-yeong instigates Lee and Moon to rob the bank, insisting that they need money to produce a movie. Eventually, the group robs the bank and becomes wanted by the police. They are on the run when a car mechanic (Kim Se-joon) recognizes their faces. Moon Do-seok accidentally kills the mechanic and Lee is on the run. He wakes up right before he is caught by the police. He realizes that all this was just his dream that he dreamt on a chair in the barber shop.

    • [Hancinema Film Review] "Gagman" + Full Movie

      Lee Myung-se started his career under Bae Chang-ho, for the films "Hwang Jin-ie", "Our Joyful Young Days" and "Dream - 1990". Thus, and having repeatedly cooperated with him and his "permanent" protagonist, Ahn Sung-ki, it was almost inevitable that he would cast them both for his directorial debut, a rather unusual comedy titled "Gagman",...More
    • [Interview] Bae Chang-ho

      Bae Chang-ho was the most commercially successful director of the 1980s, who made a number of chic melodramas about the new sensibility of the young generation. His debut film, "People in the Slum" (1982), and following films, "Whale Hunting" (1984), "Deep Blue Night" (1985), and "Our Joyful Young Days" (1987) all generated enthused reactions from not only ordinary moviegoers but also hardcore film maniacs. "Deep Blue Night" was shot mostly on location in the US at a time overseas shooting of even a few scenes was not an easy task. Despite these successes, Bae refused to dwell in one place. Since the 1980s, he pushed on in his artistic explorations, even enduring box office failures. The hit maker of the 1980s transformed himself into a maker of low budget, independent films such as "My Heart" (1999) and "Road" (2004). His early works showed elaborate filmmaking techniques that were second to none among his contemporaries, but his later works are more characterized by simple and down-to-earth approach to story telling and image capturing. He once taught in college, but left his teaching position, frustrated by artistic stagnation,...More
    • Classic Korean Movies, Just in Time for the Holidays

      2010/12/09, Source
      By Mark Russell With Christmas fast approaching, I am always sure to have some DVDs on my gift list. And with more and more classic Korean movies being issued on DVD, the selection keeps getting better for classic Korean movie fans. These days, when I go to film festivals, whether in Korea or any part of the world, I find myself increasingly drawn toward the retrospectives. Sure, it is fun discovering the latest and hippest new movies being made. But for me, I really enjoy re-discovering older movies, from 40 or 50 or more years ago,...More
