Yoon Jong-bin_The Unforgiven _2005

Yoon Jong-bin_The Unforgiven _2005

If it's common to find examples of women playing the main role or important roles in the domestic film scene, then an example of the male culture, excluding the subject of so-called gangster movies, would be The Unforgiven (2005, directed by Yoon Jong-bin), which gives a realistic rendering of the Korean army, an epitome of the traditional Korean male culture. As a critique on the army as a kind of surveillance system that reflects a side of the contemporary society, his film gained much popularity and invitation to film festivals both domestically and internationally. The organization called army which exists as the vestige of a divided nation, trap young energetic men within the fence and limits a free way of thinking. As a contemplation about the reality of this society through the invisible violence and irrationality in a sealed-off space, The Unforgiven was highly-acclaimed due to the fact that it was produced during the university days of the director. Even more surprising is that the director was invited to Cannes Film Festival with his graduation project film at the age of 27. His film has been awarded at film festivals, such as Busan Film Festival. His second feature film Beastie Boys (2007) also deals with a unique subject.

As a story about men who work in the 'host bars' on Chungdam street, the movie deals with a male culture that specifically caters to women. The selection of the subject of 'hostbar' culture which reverses the so-called room salon that many men seek, roots from the culture shock the director, a Busan-native, experienced on Chungdam Streets in Seoul. He produced the film by working as a waiter himself, observing the everyday life at the host bar. The director's attitude carves out maleness or the male culture in entirety, and this is worth the spotlight even just in the dimension of the subject matter. The director who's just over 30 has the attitude of the observer who reflects the shadows casted on the superficial flashiness of Chugdam area, the Korean mecca of consumerism. Yoon makes his audience look forward to his next soar.
