The slow death of a nightclub band in Korea
8 September 2002 | by LagomorphSee all my reviews

A frequently-comedic drama about a night-club band undergoing a slow disintegration, as the members beat each other up, drink themselves into unconsciousness, and leave to pursue more glamorous careers in things like bus driving. This is a smart social commentary and character study, definitely worth watching.
