Dasepo Naughty Girls (다세포 소녀)
Director: E J-yong (2006, 111 mins)
Thursday 9th July 2009, 7:00pm
Venue: Multi-purpose Hall, KCC
Based on the popular Internet novel, “Multi-Cell Girl”, the film takes place in “No-Use High School”, a school renowned for its sexual aberrations. The student body is comprised of sexually ambiguous teenagers, and the student president and vice-present flaunt their taste for S&M. Independent study and supplementary classes are done on homosexuality and transgenderism, and teachers and students alike leave school early because of sexually-transmitted diseases. But amidst this environment, there are some that just can’t adapt. Among them: “Poor Girl”, a student who earns money for her family by sleeping with older men; “Anthony”, a luxurious pretty-boy from Switzerland; and “One-Eye”, the school’s sole virgin. Poor Girl falls in love with Anthony at first sight. Meanwhile, Anthony is struck by One-Eye’s brother “Two Eyes” and feels confused about his sexuality.

E J-yong was born in 1966 in Seoul. He studied Turkish at Hankook University of Foreign Studies. After graduating from university, he started studying filmmaking at the Korean Academy of Film Arts. He first became known for his short film, Homo Videocus (1990) which he co-directed with Daniel H. Byun (Byun Hyeok), and which won the Prix Recherche and Prix de la Jeunesse at the Clermont-Ferrand Short Film Festival, and the Best Short Narrative award at the 1992 San Francisco Film Festival. In 1994 his documentary project, The Story of a City, was stopped in mid-production due to problems with the production company. Finally breaking his long silence in 1998, he presented his feature film debut An Affair, which won great acclaim both from audiences and critics for his fine, sophisticated sense of directing. The film, which resurrected the career of actress Lee Mi-sook, was presented at the third Pusan International Film Festival, and went on to become the seventh highest-grossing Korean film of the year.
