Oh Dong-gu believes himself to be female. Although overweight and on the short side, he dreams of becoming the perfect woman someday. He devotes himself to mimicking Madonna’s singing and dancing after school. To cover the costs of transsexual surgery, he decides to enter a wrestling competition. But he feels terrible about the fact that he has to wrestle with naked men.
The film depicts the story of a boy who wants to become a girl in a fresh and unique way. The boy decides to compete in a Korean wrestling tournament to win a cash prize for his sex reassignment surgery. He joins a high-school wrestling team for hard training. At home, he is abused by his alcoholic father. The directors took a light and humorous approach to these serious issues and showed comical determination that could exceed brutal realities. Most of the characters in the film show some defects, which represent the directors’ love for humanity. [KIM Youngjin]
