He's On Duty / SOAS Screening
2010. Directed by Yook Sanh-hyo , starring Kim In-kwon, Kim Jung-Tae, Shin Hyun-Bin , 110 mins.
Bang Tae-sik is a perennially unemployed South Korean man who, based on his physical appearance, could pass for a foreigner. He is as a result often confused for an outsider and, having nothing much to do, he takes advantage of his own situation.Tae-sik adopts a fake foreign accent and pretends to come from Bhutan. Very clumsy, the newly named Bang-ga gains confidence little by little and becomes more and more influential among his friends and co-workers. He also starts romancing the lovely Jang-mi who works in the same factory as him.
