being a person of Asian descent, i understand the cultural context from which movies like this arise. i can also see how this humor will either be incomprehensible or offensive to unfamiliar viewers.
that being said, even though son ye-jin is my fav korean actress right now, and the "man's man" inside me might be giddy at the fact that she momentarily wears a bikini in this "film" - like Brian T. said, the misogynistic and patriarchal undertones of the movie are just too blatant.
we Asian people can do better. as Asian men, we can do better for our sisters, mothers, daughters - than to assume roles like the father and son-in-law characters in this film.
