Popular film from one of the most talented veterans of South Korean cinema
19 June 2007 | by (Paris,France) – See all my reviews

As a perennial crowd puller, South Korean cinema is absolutely mind boggling. This is true because no two Korean film are similar. This implies that Korean filmmakers still continue to have countless wonderful albeit ordinary day to day stories up their sleeves which they transform into charming films at regular intervals. Bongja, directed by an experienced Korean helmer Park Chul Soo is one such film. In this film as the credits roll and images make their appearance viewers can easily perceive that it is a film made on HDVD format later blown on a 35 mm print. This is just a small technical observation. The real icing on the cake comes in form of an off the wall performance by the title character of this film. She is an ordinary young woman leading a difficult life as she is troubled by the absence of a soul mate. Her life takes unexpected turns when she comes across a funny duo : an idiotic policeman and a rakish girl. PS: should you like this film, start collecting all of Park Chul Soo's DVDs.
