Review

My Punch-Drunk Boxer is a feature version of the short film with the same title and received favorable reviews at several film festivals. An old boxer Byung-gu was a promising but unsuccessful boxer, and he has a punch-drunk syndrome. He seeks a comeback by doing chores in the gym, but few believe that he will return to the boxing ring again. He is desperate to complete his own boxing style called "pansori boxing." Minji, a newcomer at the gym, volunteers to be his supporter. The film, pushing the story to unexpected categories by featuring an unusual character, seems like a nonsense comedy, but the character’s words and actions are consistently out of beat, which makes the atmosphere not similar to any previous film. Crucially, the film allows us a little magic to fall into a sadness which can be sympathized by the ones who never been a winner. [KIM Youngjin]
