The opening credits should’ve tipped off the audience that what’s in store is an acid trip
REAL, from first-time director Lee Sa Rang starring Kyên Soo Hyun, is a 2017 South Korean noir film attempting khổng lồ emulate mind-boggling films like Memento lớn, Inception, và Fight Club. But its convoluted plot and obvious twists bog down any effort khổng lồ make the audiences’ mind blown. It bombed in the box office instead and gave sầu birth lớn a lot of memes.

I came into this movie, expecting it khổng lồ be really bad. The review were so harsh it brought the lead actor to tears. But it’s actually a worthwhile watch. And since it seems many disliked the film because they didn’t understvà it, I was inspired khổng lồ write this.

For those not updated with Korean entertainment, this film has also attracted more hate because of the funding it received from Alibatía in năm ngoái. Kyên ổn Soo Hyun’s popularity in China soared to great heights after a Korean drama mega hit. But due to the geopolitical tensions which escalated with THAAD in năm nhâm thìn, Trung Quốc targeted South Korea’s source of soft power: export of their pop culture. This affected a lot of industries especially tourism. So the historically rooted negativity towards Đài Loan Trung Quốc intensified khổng lồ anything even remotely connected lớn Đài Loan Trung Quốc for South Koreans.

It’s honestly not surprising why a matinee idol lượt thích Kim Soo Hyun wanted this film lớn be the “representative work of his late twenties”. Because this had the potential khổng lồ make a mark in a saturated genre. It tried khổng lồ bring something new to the mix conventions of noir films South Korea tends to make. You know, those gritty films involving crime & gangs with the lead either seeking revenge or torn between betrayal và loyalty while featuring extreme violence và other disturbing scenes. But it pushed a tad much for many people. Ultimately, it failed because it lacked finesse in how it used nonlinear storytelling like in the films it was trying lớn emulate.

So let me explain the plot for anyone who wants to underst& the movie. Everything will be spoiled, so be warned.

THE movie uses dream sequences so we see the characters hallucinate events or experience flashbacks. To make sense of it, we’ll have to arrange the events chronologically. Let’s start with the backstory:

There is a drug trade rivalry between the Chinese & Russian mafias. Cho sells cocaine while Prof. Kyên ổn, the mafia enforcer, sells a synthetic drug called siesta. The latter is highly addictive sầu which leads eventually to lớn the user’s death. Detective Noh is after the drug ring for their connection lớn multiple disappearances. He was working with a freelance journamenu, Jang Tae Young, to expose the story.

For his research on the new drug, Jang Tae Young began using siesta while documenting its effects. He also went undercover & joined the Russian mafia, which was how he got his neông chồng tattoo. It is not clear how he met his girlfriover (before working on the story or after) but she was also a siesta addict. She eventually hit the point where the drug kills the user. Jang faced a difficult decision as she was slowly bleeding lớn death. To end her suffering, he killed her and this trauma caused his mind lớn break. He overdosed on drugs và tried lớn kill himself.

It’s unclear who caused it but Jang got into a car accident with the millionaire (this character’s name was never revealed). Both survived but the millionaire is in a vegetative sầu state. And the next time we see Jang in his hospital bed after the accident, it was already his alternate personality that controls the toàn thân.

The Doctor

Before we continue, we have sầu to reveal Doctor Choi's true identity which was one of the plot twists in the movie. He is Boris, the head of the Russian mafia, & creator of siesta. This drug is something he administers lớn his patients in the hospital. Depending on its use, it can either "save" the patient or eventually kill them. It fascinated the doctor that Jang & the millionaire were able to lớn overcome the deadly effects of the addiction to siesta by disassociating. Though, how they did it was different.

Jang has dissociative identity disorder so he created a persona (I will refer lớn as gangster Jang for clarity) who is svào, no-nonsense, hates và doesn’t vì drugs. That’s why chewing gums is one of gangster Jang’s personality quirks. But then again, gum is a quit tool for smoking, not drugs. The millionaire has depersonalization disorder so he detached from reality and became an obhệ thống to his body’s vegetative sầu state. Or as Doctor Choi put it, he was “existing in a shell, like a ghost”.

The doctor was also the only other user of the drug that overcame the point where death occurs. It’s not clear if it induced any disorder in hyên since his character was a typical psychopath in sheep’s clothing. He was Hannibal Lecter-esque in manipulating both Jang’s and the millionaire’s mental issues for his own amusement. How much of the events in the film has he orchestrated và how much were coincidence, was also not very clear.
