Storyline

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.

Modern ways of laughing at unequal world
14 February 2020 | by ronaldhongkongworkSee all my reviews

Subtle way weaving many problems of today's world into this modern comedy.

Problems eg income inequality; excessive power of less than 1% in population; lack of social mobility & justice even for white collar workers shrinking middle class; overly land driven capitalistic economy; and more.

Very smooth and natural flow of the plot, with both laughters (and some earned tears) in a good mix.
