The New York Asian Film Festival runs from June 22-July 8 on the other coast. Most of the films are new and unseen in the U.S. and will be screened at the IFC Center and Japan Society. For ticket information, go to subwaycinema.com. I’m dying to see Dasepo Naughty Girls by Korean director E. J-Yong. Its synopsis?
Based on a hugely popular webcomic, this musical (!) about Dasepo (“Useless”) High School, revolves around the plight of Poor Girl (KIM Ok-bin), a new student who has poverty, literally, hanging off her back. She’s in love with “the transfer student from Switzerland” Anthony (PARK Jin-woo), but he’s in love with Double Eyes, the sister of One Eye (LEE Kyun), the class cyclops. One problem: Double Eyes is actually a boy. Another problem: a cult is abducting students and forcing them to dirty dance for the Erotic Goddess. Third Problem: the headmaster is hypnotizing students and installing an “Instant Virgin Chip” that turns them into church-going nerds. For the kids of Dasepo High, who are constantly ducking out of class to hit the VD clinic or meet a customer, this is the ultimate insult. Who will save these perverted pupils from being transformed into model students?
Not convinced? Watch the film’s batshit-keyrazy trailer.
