The President's Last Bang Film Poster


Darkly satirical comedy, as director Im Sang Soo revisits South Korea's murky past, in this film about the 1979 assassination of President Park Chung Hee (Jae-ho Song). Summoned to dine with his employer, cynical Korean CIA chief Kim Jae Kyu (Yun-shik Baek) arrives to find the president accompanied by his corrupt advisers and party sycophants. After years of being progressively sickened by Park's immoral lifestyle and corrupt administration, not to mention having just had a medical check-up from hell, Kim decides to do something about it, and with the aid of his trusty but brutal henchman Ju (Han Suk kyu), takes matters, and Park's life, into his own hands.
