Emergency Act 19 (Korean) 2002

After some musicians won the elections for president in some countries in europe and in the US, the korean president enacts “Emergency Act No. 19″. Now all singers are outlawed and hunted down by the army. Two young male singers, Ju-hyeon No and Kyeong-min Hong, are hidden by some of their fans…

Most of these scenes in the movie are very funny and humorous, but don’t expect any intense drama there. In addition, the film also contains some interesting political metaphors that may not appear too meaningful for outsiders who know nothing about the politics in Korea.
