Review

Punk bands from Seoul are invited to the largest hardcore punk music festival in history which will be held in Tokyo. They have fun with like-minded musicians and a small but passionate audience but also have a hard time. After pouring out all their energy on stage, they travel long distances to get to the next performance and even make and serve food at the performance venue/restaurant. Still, they’re happy because they’re with friends. Back home in the Hongdae area, they are still active but seem lonelier and angrier. They spit out words of rage and ridicule and exhaust all their energy on stage but it’s not getting through. Although they don’t see a bright future for themselves in this documentary, the band members’ diverse personalities and their pride in proving the reason punk music should exist captivates to the audience.
