In order to make attorney at the law firm where he's a lowly assistant, Tae-soo (Ahn Jae-hong) is given the daunting assignment of keeping a failing zoo afloat for three months while the equity firm that took it over finds a buyer. That's no mean feat when it turns out the Dongsan Park establishment has sold off the majority of its main attractions. Aware of the time crunch involved in trying to import additional creatures, Tae-soo attempts to make a go of it by recruiting the remaining skeleton staff to pose in furry suits that can sort of look convincing if viewed from as far a distance as possible.Written by
Yes it certainly feels that way and the tone may be too varied, from earnest too completely silly and anything in between. But when it is funny (humans in animal costumes), it really is laugh out loud funny. Maybe I was in the right mood, or maybe this just has a certain quality to it. I'll opt to give it the benefit of the doubt and say it has quality. Certain things remain predictable, but the movie playing almost everything as straight as possible really lends to the heightening of the humor it has within. I'm more used to the thriller and action output that comes from South Korea, but this was a welcome change - one that really can work for you - with a really neat and nice message.
