Not good
23 May 2005 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

In the future, not too far away, Madonna wins the election in the USA and becomes the President of the United States of America. Strange? Obviously not if you are the leader of Korea. Suddenly all Korean pop singers are potential candidates for the next presidency and therefore dangerous criminals. The "Emergency Act 19" declares pop music illegal and starts a nation-wide search for pop stars and starlets. To make matters worse, the secretary of state (or some other guy who gives out orders, it really doesn't matter) has the obligatory rebelling daughter who immediately starts a campaign to save her beloved stars. The movie itself suffers from, well, everything. It starts with the lack of a plot line and doesn't end with the lack of decent actors. The girl, although treated as the main actress, has the charm of a brick and about the same significance. Kim JangHoon, the main singer-turned-actor, does mainly swear and complain. Along with singer Hong KyungMin, he participates in one of the most boring scenes in the history of movies. Why would anyone spend money on such a movie? Well, Shinhwa fans would. Or fans of Baby VOX, KangTa, Harisu, ClickB and various other Korean stars who have about 30 to 60 seconds screen time each. If you are madly in love with Hyori, you will gladly fast forward through the two hours of boredom. The scenes with the stars are all somewhat cute and surely watchable for fans, but it would be a torture for anyone else.
