TODAY’S NEW RELEASE: DASEPO NAUGHTY GIRLS
As the title may indicate, this is a little bit of a “naughty” film coming out of South Korea. Nominated for Best Director at the 2007 Baeksang Arts Awards and in 2008 at the Blue Dragon Film Awards, “Dasepo Naughty Girls” is a raunchy, fun-filled, Korean musical comedy. The film opens with a substitute teacher explaining that he is substituting that day, because the student’s real teacher has an STD which he explains can happen when you sleep with a teenage hooker. Yes, viewers this is the first two minutes of the film and the lines and the sex continue throughout the entire film. Think “Old School” Korean-style, with the same sense of humor, jokes and dirtiness. Although the film is all about the different cliques of students at No Use High School, it focuses on three particular misfits who are just searching for a way to belong and struggle with their own individual differences. I think my favorite character was the cross-dressing “Big Razor Sis” who loves to just have a great time and view life from a positive perspective. I hate to make this film sound deep, as it is not, it is definitely one of the most sexually-charged, strangest films I have ever seen. From bandits, to bad girls, to teachers being whipped by their students, virgins, and even a Cyclops, there is something that you are bound to get a kick out of in “Dasepo Naughty Girls” folks, so watch it tonight!
