Storyline

In busy downtown Seoul, a thuggish young man notices a fresh-faced college student who sits on a bench. He stares then sits next to her. She looks at him as if he's vermin, rises and walks to another bench. He sits staring. Her boyfriend arrives, she points to the stranger, the boyfriend shrugs and puts his arm around her to walk away. The stranger starts to leave as well, turns, goes to them, takes her face firmly in his hands and kisses her long and hard. The boyfriend tries unsuccessfully to break them apart, then soldiers beat the stranger. She demands an apology. He is silent. She slaps him and spits on him. They leave. The next day, he sets out to ruin her. How can this end? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

This film is real magic
26 November 2010 | by (Switzerland) – See all my reviews

There's very little form of representation I'd like more than movies. I saw 'Bad Guy' by chance a few years ago. I had never heard of Kim Ki-Duk before,but just by watching few seconds into the film I started to think to myself – this film is real magic – And it is a real incantation every time I see it now. I enjoy movies, because they are a personal vision of a life through the eyes of an oneself, as in a mirror, which is a kind of an image of the one looking. If you are concerned with knowing, thinking and intend to know yourself, you look into this 'mirror' and it gives you an insight in how to measure yourself; dipped in dark, in an imminent move out, ready for take-off, like on a plane, for somewhere. Thank you Kim Ki-Duk.
