  • The Character Of Ahjussi, And My Gangster Like Lover

    Ahjussi (아저씨), also known by it’s English title The Man from Nowhere, is an action packed, thriller film starring Won Bin as the movie’s protagonist, Cha Tae Sik. The movie was released on August 4, 2010 and was directed by Lee Jeong Bum. The story begin with Cha Tae Sik, the owner of a pawnshop, who lives by himself and leads a quiet life. He is a quiet man and does not have any friends except for a little girl, Somi, who lives next door with her mom. Somi frequents the pawn shop, often selling her belongings in an effort to save money towards buying something. Somi’s mother is a heroin addict and often neglects Somi telling her to “go play outside” when she wants to indulge in her drugs. When Somi’s mother steals drugs from an organized crime group, they come and abduct them both. The movie follows Tae Sik’s journey towards finding and rescuing Somi. This movie was Korea’s highest grossing film in 2010 and I definitely see why. This plot in this movie progresses quite well and it is very engaging without getting boring. The action in the movie does include gore but not to the point where it becomes unwatchable. As someone who doesn’t like overly gory films, I found this movie completely bearable when it came to the bloody scenes. The main character, Tae-sik, is also quite intriguing because in the beginning of the movie we only see him as this quiet and lonely pawn shop owner, but it is later revealed that he was once a happy man. He had a wife with whom he was expecting…
