Synopsis: 

More than 25 years after the assassination of dictatorial South Korean president General Park Chung-hee, an irreverent and darkly comic film has been made about that fateful night. In 1979 a number of demonstrations against Park (Jae-ho Song, Memories of Murder) were brutally crushed by the military. The head of his secret service, Kim (played by Baek Yun-shik, Save the Green Planet!), has other concerns: he is fed up with arranging presidential trysts with sexpots and his liver is failing from the demands of being Park's drinking buddy. Im Sang-Soo (A Good Lawyer's Wife) wrote and directed this astonishing work, set in a Korean safe house and filled with efficient character sketches of the corrupt president's inside circle.
