Action Drama Science-Fiction

118min | Release date in South Korea :

ByungGu(SHIN HaKyun), an ordinary young man living in Korea, believes that all of the earth's social ills are the evil work of aliens. That's why he knows that unless he can meet the prince from Andromeda before the total lunar eclipse, planet earth will be in grave danger. To meet the prince, he must find an extraterrestrial living on earth. So ByungGu kidnaps the most logical suspect, KANG ManShik(BAEK YunSik), the president and CEO of YooJae Chemical Company. Thus starts the battle between ByungGu, who's trying to uncover a secret alien plot to destroy the earth, and CEO Kang, who thinks ByungGu is nuts and is trying desperately to escape from him. Only four hours remain until the total lunar eclipse. When the eclipse is over, time will run out for planet earth. Can ByungGu single-handedly save the planet?

  • [Guest Film Review] "Save the Green Planet"

    2018/02/17
    Probably one of the greatest accomplishments of contemporary Korean cinema, "Save the Green Planet" is a great movie that manages to combine slapstick comedy with science fiction, film noir, thriller, and horror, with exploitation elements in the most impressive way,...More
  • [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

    Jang Joon-hwan's daring debut "Save the Green Planet" (2003) is both cruel and unusual. Violence, torture, aliens and the end of the world are all juicy prospects for cinephiles and sci-fi fans alike, but often the results are B-grade and gaudy. Jang's film, however, is a delightful and unique merger of ideas that are well sutured and sharp; a welcome and edgy edition to modern Korean cinema's impressive filmography. This cult classic is over ten years old now but Jang's opening act still endures and is aging well. Enjoy! [SPOILERS],...More
  • [HanCinema's Film Review] "Save The Green Planet"!

    2011/02/26
    Scriptwriter and director Jang Joon-hwan first made a name for himself with his 1995 short film 2001: Imagine and in 2003, he directed his first full-length feature "Save the Green Planet". Although the film failed to have an impact at the box office, it came highly recommended by the few moviegoers and critics who did decide it was worth a watch. I admit that I to came across this film as a recommendation, and to be quite honest, I am still on the fence about it.,...More
