MAN ON HIGH HEELS (하이힐) 2014

MAN ON HIGH HEELS (하이힐) 2014

2014, 125 min, Digibeta
Directed by Jang Jin
Cast: Cha Seung-won, Oh Jeong-se, Esom, Ko Kyeong-pyo, Ahn Kil-kang, Lee Eon-jeong

After a three-year hiatus, Jang Jin (WELCOME TO DONGMAKGOL), one of Korea's most inventive writer-directors, is back to subvert the tough-guy detective genre and established notions of Korean masculinity. Detective Ji-wook (Cha Seung-won) is the most bad-ass cop in town, never missing an opportunity to beat the crap out of the bad guys. But deep inside, despite his uber masculine good looks, Ji-wook is tired of being a tough boy. Tortured by the unavowable desire to be a woman, he decides to get a sex change. Things get messy when a gang that Ji-wook had busted starts hurting people close to him: time to prove that, even in high heels, he can still kick some ass.
