Delightful festival of Korean-ness.
Last year I was incredibly fortunate to see this adorable movie when it premiered at The Korean Film Festival in Auckland. It was showing at The Academy, which is an informal art-house cinema in the basement of The Public Library. I was the only non-Asian person there too. For a “Frock Movie” fan like myself this was the most wonderful experience. The lush locations, hyper-color cinematography, the superb costumes and beautiful set dressing alone, make it a must-see. The surprising thing about the story, is that it is a comedy. I might not have realised this watching it with just English sub titles. The audience at the festival were laughing a lot. It appears it is a spoof of a traditional story which everyone knows. The script is very tongue in cheek and a bit anarchic. Think ‘Blackadder” view of historical events as a comparison. I wish this genre of films were more easily viewed. I am back in Cornwall now and there is no way I would have seen it here.
Retelling of a Korean folktale with twists
Like folktales that goes through the eyes from a different perspective like the “Three Little Pigs” taken from the Big Bad Wolf’s perceptive and the same going for “Little Red Riding Hood”. This one takes a Korean folktale and tells the story from Bang-Ja’s perspective while the high ranking guy is the evil one. And while Bang-Ja is in love with Lady Chun Hyang the high ranking guy who in the original folktale is like the charming prince just thinks of her as a piece of meat. And this story which is a twisted retelling of the folktale goes in a more depressing and tragic direction. While making this story out to be the true tale of what happened. Where none of the characters are likable and isn’t a tale for younger audiences. Most of the way through the movie shows Bang-Ja in love with Lady Chun Hyang. So in order to win her because he is just a lowly servant, gets training how to sexually flirt with girls from Old man Ma who has a reputation for sleeping with many women using certain techniques to attract them. It probably won’t work this day and age but it might have worked back then. But it was intriguing and kinda funny to see Old man Ma show the guy the ropes. And I think these types of scenarios made this movie a hit in Korea. While showing the realistic portrayal of thing, even if it isn’t moralistically right. The ending seems a bit slightly forced into to show how the original folktale came to be but it’s passable. This isn’t a romance flick but a erotic love story I guess. Overall this movie is alright it’s not a moving flick or a feel good one, in fact it’s a depressing one that has somewhat realistic but negative message at the end. Men are known for falling for a girl over their beauty over personality and that really shows in this one I guess cause there really isn’t anything likable about Chun-Hyang.
