Gamgi shows us that Koreans are Good and the US is Evil
23 February 2014 | by phjscottSee all my reviews

I must be out of touch with reality but I have to ask, why is the South Korean President portrayed as a supplicating B!%ch in this movie?!?!

The movie has a double standard which says: "If the Koreans dealt with the situation on their own they would do so in a much more humane manner than they are forced to by external pressure from the USA". They blame the inhumanity on "forces beyond their control" until some become courageous enough to stand up to the Imperial power. WHAT?

We have here a standard tale of infection and quarantine, rendered quite nicely and realistically from the perspective of the South Korean people. We get a great snap shot of South Korean society experiencing the dreaded infection crisis.

All of a sudden the Americans are in charge!!! WHY? AND, they are portrayed as the heartless, evil "managers" of the situation. The Koreans seemingly have plans to contain the outbreak when all of a sudden BOOM! USA wants to smack down the whole effort and kill anyone that disagrees "for the sake of the entire world" or my favorite "the whole world is watching you Korea".

I thought this was a well done representation of a disease crisis outbreak. I am a big fan of the Zombie and Post-Apocalyptic Genres. However, I was insulted by this simpering deferment that represented the South Korean people as beholden to the will of the US military. Is this really how S.Koreans see themselves in the event of a catastrophe? That the US/UN is going to swoop in and call the shots because of their inadequacies? The feel of the movie suggests that this attitude of officials like the S.Korean President is somehow acceptable. If I was Korean I would be insulted by such obvious and blatant social conditioning and/or stereotyping.

As a movie about human beings dealing with crisis, particularly where it focuses on the main characters, is engaging. Hyuk Jang and Soo Ae, along with Min-ah Park are all EXCELLENT. I love the story of them getting to know and love one another to the point of dying for each other. Their relationship makes it all worth while.

The nonsense spewed from the officials like the Mayor, President and US overseer is simply outrages. It shows either a complete departure from reality OR is in some way an acceptable "realistic" portrayal that S.Korean audiences would find believable/realistic, and that makes me sad.

Also, the subtitles sucked in the version I watched but the fact that I made it through the whole thing speaks volumes about the good parts of the movie as a whole. Maybe if I spoke Korean I wouldn't be as harsh on the officials. For all I know they were telling the USA guy to eat a dick the whole movie and it just got mis-translated.
