unusual attack on cute boys started on February 14 and subsequently,
on the 14th of every month, such an attack happened at different
high schools. Studious student Ki-bum decides to investigate
this matter and starts blogging all these terror events. He
predicts that the next victim will be either Siwon President
of the student body; Hee-chul President of the dance club
or Kang-In, Captain of the Judo Team.
This reviewer’s sister is a fan of all things
Korean. When she saw this DVD lying on the table, she exclaimed
in astonishment: “Super Junior!” Call him ignorant,
but this reviewer has no idea what or who this “Super
Junior” is, but it probably is related to the pretty
boys whose faces are gloriously plastered onto the DVD cover.
Without listening to what she has to add about the movie,
he popped the DVD into the player and what followed was a,
err, unconstructive 81 minutes.
story plot is silly beyond words: On the faithful day of 14
February, a school heartthrob of the male species was attacked,
and following that, the same attacks started happening at
different high schools every month on the same day. This becomes
a popular topic within the Neulparan High School student body,
and a group of students begin investigating the matter and
predict who the next victims will be. Sounds like a typical
high school drama series which teenage girls would enjoy watching
on TV? Wait till you find out what kind of attacks these flower
boys (good looking high school jocks) underwent. We’ll
leave that till the end of the review.
“Super Junior” is a 13 member boy band from Korea,
and judging by their good looks, this movie is obviously a
star vehicle for them, and a money milking machine. They can
now put in their resumes that they have “acted”
in a movie, so that they are more credible artistes, and can
earn get more young girls to pay for their albums. But because
one member got hurt in a car accident, the movie only stars
12 of them in various roles which, we hate to say it, do not
require much depth and skills.
this reviewer is of the male species himself, he doesn’t
see what the big deal is about all these K-pop cultures. Maybe
he isn’t a good looker himself, he doesn’t see
what the big deal is about having 12 good lookers to star
in a movie vehicle to boost their popularity. Maybe he is
just suffering from jealousy, he doesn’t see why teenage
girls would fork out money to buy boy bands’ albums
and for this matter, a movie DVD starring them. When you have
an eight minute music video incorporated into the movie’s
finale, you know this is definitely a picture targeted at
we haven’t touched on how the movie fares? Forgive us,
because we have been distracted by the fact that a movie can
actually be produced based on a plot which involves throwing
feces (yes, that’s sh*t) at handsome high school boys.
And yes, that’s the attack these pin up boys suffer
from. Poor them, other than some nice computer graphics to
create the glow around these pretty boys, most of the story
plot involves how they have to avoid feces thrown at them.
And you know things have reached its lowest point when someone
asks the attacker whether he uses his own feces for the attacks.
this reviewer thinks his sister was trying to warn him how
silly the flick is before he ran off to pop the DVD into his
