Hyojadong ibalsa

AKA: The President's Barber

Country: South Korea

Genre: Comedy, Historical Drama



The President's Barber reviews the years of Korean history under the dictatorship of Gen. Park Chung Hee. This is a fictional story told by a barber's son, Nak-an, who is born in 1961 when a student rebellion toppled South Korean President Syngman Rhee. What followed was Park's 18-year rule of South Korea. The filmmaker presents various sides of Park's rule, including the torture and executions carried out under the national security law, but also Park's efforts to lend momentum to the technical development of South Korea. The film captures the human toll of Park's reign, but also has touching moments of humor and absurdity.
