  • Review

    Tears of the Idol mixes Jeon Sangguk’s novels: 『Tears of the Idol』 and 『Cry of Piglets』. The film shows the relationship between the boys who want power and a teacher. A series of the accidents that occur while taming the repeater student, Gi-pyo, is an allegory of the violence of a totalitarian order of the time in Korea. Song Gil-han added keen insights of the time while Im Kwontaek added simple, determined visual expressions to the original work. Adding to the intense subject are the awareness on the issue and how the scenes are directed. The sense of space is exceptional. The camera that moves in and out of the classroom and how it condenses and reveals the minds of the high school boys are impressive. When Gi-pyo is pushed to a corner, he hurts his stomach himself, leaving an unforgettable impression.
