Yangachi? Is it worth watching?, 25 May 2002
Author: Yongwook Yoo from Montreal, Canada

In order to understand every piece of this movie, one concept of Korean underground culture needs to be remembered- a Yangachi/Yang-ah-chi/. Yangachi is a hard-to-define persona, but can be said to include various outcasts in school, in social group, or in all kinds of modern people's entity made by usual interactions. Yangachi is intentionally declining to assimilate to major trend, and strictly following their own ways. They will make a sleazy crime like blackmarketting, drug packaging, extracting from small business owner, protecting whores from 'naughty clients', even meddling with local gangster('Jopok' in Korea) business. Most Korean youngsters have some fantasy toward yangachi, but totally banned from becoming by school, or by parents.

Jungle Juice is a bravado movie of two natural-born yangachis in Korea. Two yangachi friends show every possible stupid action, and every imaginable extremity in order to boost up the viewer's laugh. They try to draw viewer's attention as possible, and manage to act like their behavior is not far from normal way of life. However, the laugh is not for what the yangachi do, but the colored characters they assume. They are yangachi of yangachi, a marginal mutant rather than original yangachi itself, and this mediocre characterization produce some kind of 'alienation' between screen and viewers in order to produce awkward laughs.

Another crazy genre of comedy simply focusing on the colored dialogue and slap-stick action which are nothing new now. Very hard to grasp for foreigners who lack the knowledge on the underground culture of Korea.
