Then, the film is fast-forward a few years when Nak-an is quite older. He is outside with kids from the neighborhood when they start calling his father “hair man.” Nak-an runs and tells his father who goes out to find the kids. He starts yelling at the chubby kid, but his father soon comes who Han-mo knows. He stops yelling at the kid and goes back to his shop. He then explains to Nak-an what the colors stand for on the barber pole: red and blue for blood and white for bonds. He tells his son that barbershops use to be doctor’s offices and so barbers and doctors are brothers. Next, a CIA agent comes to his shop and tells him to look out for a suspicious person at 12 a.m. that night. Han-mo wakes up and finds a man on the roof who he …show more content…
He became extremely busy being the caretaker of the President. When he arrived back home, there was a crowd gathered to greet him. They gained many new clients at the barber shop because people then knew he was the President’s barber. Then, the Marxus Disease started to spread across South Korea. North Korean spies were thought to be spreading this disease so anyone found with it was taken by the CIA for questioning. Nak-an was eventually taken for questioning about being a spy.

It is October 26, 1979 when the President is shot to death. Han-mo goes to the funeral and is very upset. He then remembers what the herb doctor in the mountain tells him about the dragon’s eye and sneaks one night to get the President’s eye. He and his wife then make the drink exactly as the doctor says to try to heal their son. Nak-an slowly began to walk again and the films ends with him riding his bike. Overall, I truly enjoyed watching this film. The other two films we have watched have been documentaries so this was a nice change. Even though this was a fiction film, I surprisingly learned quite a lot from it. It was similar to Forrest Grump which I found interesting. I am curious as to if the film makers had seen Forrest Grump and wanted to make a similar film. I also have a hard time putting my finger on the genre because of the content. I would classify it as an informational comedy. This is my favorite film we have watched so far and hope the next one is similar to this
