Review

The future of Daepoong High School Wrestling team is grim. Coach Sang-gyu gave up his dubious wrestling coaching career and is working as a bus driver. Choong-gil wants to revive the team when another team member Seung-hwan wants to give up wrestling team. When alumnus Min-jae joins in there is a chance to rebuild the team. The coach persuades the school principal to give them the last chance to get ready for the tournament. Loser’s Adventure is a healing story of an abandonment era which is accustomed to giving up the future. Director Ko Bongsoo who was invited to the Jeonju International Film Festival in 2016 for Delta Boys(2016), focuses on the lives of losers who still tries to keep their dreams firmly. Loser’s Adventure combines comedy and sensitivity, and comforts those who try to seek their own path in hard reality. [JANG Byungwon]

DIRECTOR
KO Bong-soo
There is something common about Ko Bong-soo’s films. All four of his feature films are comedies, films praising minorities, and were introduced at the Jeonju IFF. From the Grand Prize winner of the Jeonju IFF 2016 Korean Competition, Delta Boys (2016), to Wish You Were Here, Ko depicts the weary yet indomitable dreams of the figures who are inferior in the secular sense. His figures do not give in to slander, scolding, and oppression and positively accept the life of a minority. Ko is a distinctive pioneer of comedy in Korean independent cinema who works on silent comedy and fake documentary. He is renowned for spending a long time with the actors, leading them to act the charming characters as if they walked in the character’s shoes. In his self-reflexive fake documentary Wish You Were Here, he unifies his artistic world by acting the role of himself.
