Overview

After his business goes bankrupt, CEO Kyung-min kills his wife impulsively. He seeks out his middle school friend, Jong-suk, who works as a ghostwriter for an autobiography, despite his dream of writing his own novel. For the first time in 15 years, Jong-suk is taken aback by Kyung-min’s unexpected visit. And they bring up their reality and memories that they wanted to hide.

Review

This animation film made by Yeon Sang-ho has been recognized not only in Korea but also all over the world. The story’s availability and solidness has lent itself to being retold recently in a live action series. When it opened at the theaters in 2011, it drew the public’s attention in that this animated film was only for adults. After his bankruptcy, Kyung-min impulsively murders his wife and runs to his friend, Jong-suk. They reminisce about Chul, their hero during their middle school days. They were the “pigs” in the lowest rank of the power pyramid who had to cowardly accept the violence but Chul was a “monster” who defied that violence and fought back with even more violence. This cruel view of “survival of the fittest” is also reflected in Train to Busan and The Hell. In this sense The King of Pigs can be said to be the summary of Yeon’s film world in the early days.
