Review

High school girl Ryeowon is not happy about having Baekyoung who has short hair, wears uniform pants, and acts all tough as her seatmate. She is unsure if Baekyoung is a lesbian or a transgender, but she doesn’t understand why “she acts like a boy.” Whether Baekyoung knows how Ryeowon feels or not, she starts opening up to her. This moves Ryeowon’s heart. One day, Ryeowon’s best friend Hyeri confesses that she has a crush on Baekyoung. “Do you like her as a girl? Or because she is like a boy?” Filled with prejudice, Ryeowon throws a question to Hyeri and interprets her feeling the way she wants. However, how can we simply explain these strong emotions that Ryeowon, Baekyoung, and Hyeri are each experiencing? Casually, for the Worse presents a different kind of queer film that depicts queerness which is not black and white like butch/femme, homosexual/heterosexual, and transgender/cisgender. In addition, the film doesn’t define Baekyoung’s identity, Hyeri’s sexual orientation, or Ryeonwon’s opinion. In fact, putting a label on it may not really matter. [SOHN Hee-jeong]
