YesAsia Editorial Description

It's never too late to become a Dancing Queen! A big hit at the Korean box office, Dancing Queen stars diva Uhm Jung Hwa (Seducing Mr. Perfect) and acclaimed actor Hwang Jung Min (Moby Dick) as a middle-aged couple whose marriage hits a rut when they each rediscover their dreams. Directed by Lee Seok Hoon (2 Faces of My Girlfriend), the crowd-pleasing, heartwarming blockbuster is a delightful mix of relationship drama, zero-to-hero comedy, and even political satire!

Spunky housewife Jung Hwa (Uhm Jung Hwa) was a dance club legend back in the day, but that's all in the past. She's now a mother and married to Jung Min (Hwang Jung Min), an unsuccessful lawyer who suddenly turns into the toast of the town after he rescues someone. Jung Hwa gets the chance to relive her dreams when she's selected to join a sexy girl group, which she does without telling her family. Jung Min, meanwhile, runs for mayor and becomes the hot favorite. But how will he - and the public - react when Jung Hwa's secret occupation is revealed?

Professional Review of "Dancing Queen (DVD) (Taiwan Version)"

June 18, 2012

This professional review refers to Dancing Queen (DVD) (First Press Limited Edition) (Korea Version)
Korean comedy Dancing Queen has already emerged as one of the year's biggest hits, following popular film and television actress Uhm Jung Hwa (Seducing Mr. Perfect) as a housewife who gets the chance to relive her dreams of becoming a singer. The film was written and directed by Lee Seok Hoon (2 Faces of My Girlfriend), who spices up the story with other genre elements, a witty but grounded script and plenty of bouncy music. Starring opposite Uhm Jung Hwa is acclaimed actor Hwang Jung Min, who recently impressed in Moby Dick and Ryoo Seung Wan's superb The Unjust.

Uhm Jung Hwa plays Jung Hwa, a housewife and mother who has spent most of her life supporting her husband Jung Min (Hwang Jung Min) through law school. A former nightclub singer and dancer, she still harbours dreams of making it big, and is given the chance when her audition for a television talent show is spotted by an agent, who offers her a place in a girl band called Dancing Queens At the same time, Jung Min's career suddenly takes off after he inadvertently saves a man from being hit by a train, and he ends up as one of the leading candidates in the mayoral election. Of course, having a sexy dressing singer for a wife doesn't really fit with being a politician, so Jung Hwa is forced to keep her new life a secret from him and her family.

It's easy to see why Dancing Queen proved so popular at the Korean box office, as it's a film which successfully manages to mix together a variety of genres in entertaining and smile-inducing fashion. Similar in feel to 200 Pounds Beauty and recent blockbuster Sunny the film balances comedy, romance, underdog drama and even political satire, enough so to give it far wider appeal than its chick flick sounding premise might suggest. Lee Seok Hoon does a great job as both writer and director, with a script that never patronises the audience and manages to come up with a feeling of genuine heart and spirit. The film is certainly a lot of fun throughout, and though predictable there's a lot going on and plenty to hold the interest.

The film is in its own way quite clever, and the political satire angle both adds a few laughs and a welcome touch of social commentary, helping to give it a real sense of currency. This blends comfortably with some more basic humour, Lee packing in slapstick and creative farce style comedic set pieces along the way as Jung Hwa amusingly tries to keep her double life hidden. The musical side similarly adds liveliness, with plenty of pop tunes and flashy stage numbers, and the film is energetic and colourful.

This aside, the main reason why Dancing Queen works so well is its character driven approach, Lee wisely devoting a fair amount of effort to making Jung Hwa a likeable, sympathetic, and most importantly, believable protagonist. Uhm Jung Hwa was a perfect choice for the role and is on fine form, showing determination and strength with just the right amount of ditziness. Hwang Jung Min also impresses, and the film is all the better for giving nearly as much respect and focus to his career and problems. Their relationship is unusually fleshed out and convincing for this type of film, and the story is very much about two people trying to fulfil their dreams, as well as trying to make their marriage and lives together work. Although things unsurprisingly build to an over the top set piece finale, Lee never loses sight of this, and the film is actually quite moving and rewarding in its wrap up.

There's really a great deal to like about Dancing Queen and though not offering anything new, it's the very definition of a feel good crowd-pleaser. Well made and benefitting from a strong central pairing in Uhm Jung Hwa and Hwang Jung Min, it's a couple of hours of unpretentious and amiable enjoyment, proving again that no-one makes genre-blending films like this quite as well as Korea.

Pop or Politics (A) Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
In “Dancing Queen” both Jung Min and Jung-hwa use their own names as the main married protagonists. Jung-min sort of returns to his ‘O Superman’ persona, considering his instant public appeal after saving a drunk man from being killed by a train and then pressed to vie for city mayor for his good public deed. And…Jung-hwa gets all 90s retrospective and joins a mature girl band called Dancing Queens. But Jung-min struggles to pay the rent, being unsuccessful as a public civil lawyer, and getting strapped for cash to maintain family life stability has to loan money off his father in law, which annoys Jung-hwa. Hairdresser Jung-hwa, a once nightclub techno dance queen and Madonna of Korea (which JHU really was in the 90s) likes to dance party often with her hairdresser mate Myeong-ae (Mi-ran Ra), who was also in a pop music act. Reminiscing over old times, Myeong-ae tries to convince Jung-hwa to enter a M-Net ‘Superstar K’ show to re-invigorate their pop dreams. At first Jung-hwa declines, but after her little daughter considers her mother having zero inspiration and getting fat by eating too much ramen, worries Jung-hwa’s lack of responsibility and so reconsiders Myeong-ae’s offer and signs up for Superstar K. On the night of the show both fail to impress the judges as a singing dance duo (with judge Hyori Lee saying ‘no’ to Jung-hwa Uhm). But as Jung-hwa had impressed a music agent in her 90s dance heyday, he sees the show and asks Jung-hwa to join his new sexy girl pop band ‘Dancing Queens’.

As Jung-min saved a man’s life he becomes ‘hero of the day’, and his public image causes backroom politicians to consider Jung-min as a good public figure and opposition candidate for new city mayor office elections. But a media stratagem for this lesser candidate would then deem him to fail to an already chosen politician ‘readied’ as new mayor. So fall guy Jung-min will be shown as a great people person for TV media, but end up falling short in a voting scam. Still, Jung-min as it tough anyway, as he can’t pronounce big important words like ‘meetropolitan’ correctly (in Korean of course) for a TV politic show, but ironically Jung-min’s heartfelt passion about family life - having to raise his own kids, knowing the exact price of milk and in debt by loaning money off Jung-hwa’s dad (yes, he identifies with the ‘real world’) - wins over the show’s audience and TV viewers and Jung-min’s passionate spontaneity challenges the opposition candidates.

Pop or Politics (B) Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
But at a bar when Jung-hwa’s music agent gets frisky with her for one instant, both are photographed ‘embracing’ (Jung-hwa in ‘gerroff!’ mode; agent in ‘I’m sorry I can’t help it’ mode) by a disgruntled DQ member sore at being replaced by Jung-hwa and wanting to get even. This ‘trashy TV drama type scandal’ then puts Jung-min’s chance to be mayor (albeit rigged) on even dodger ground (a politician’s pop dancer wife having an affair? Oh, iffy time!), and causing Jung-min to confront his wife about his dreams and her own.

Although “Dancing Queen” as pop music focus, it’s also a feel good movie with a heartfelt decent message about social fairness. Its bubbly kitchen sink grind of ‘ordinary’ family characters, who raise kids, cook, wash, break wind, suffer debts, bemoan with quick-wittedness and humorous cheer. DQ is also very comic strip slapstick, like when Jung-min and Jung-hwa attend a political event where ‘Dancing Queens’ are also booked to perform there. So to sing/dance and avoid embarrassing her husband, Jung-hwa as to sneak away from Jung-min into the ladies toilets to change into her dancing gear and then perform on stage, hoping no political officials realize Jung-hwa’s a member of a sexy girl band. Rapid idiosyncratic bits, too, are funny - such as one of Jung-min’s lawyer clients so distressed by a novel character suddenly dying, wants to sue the author. Yes, DQ is harmless superficial vacuous fun, but Jung-min and Jung-hwa’s dreams of rising above mundane existence to bring some adrenaline boost and purpose in life, humanize the daft mediocrity. They portray two pedestrian people transforming into pedestal warriors for mass media consumption (well Jung-hwa tries to convince her daughter she can turn dreams into reality) but attempt it with heart and style. Although Jung-hwa and Jung-min strive for restrictive goals, they bumble and humble it towards a fulfilling upshot. Faced with manipulation, scandal and humiliation its no easy route.

DQ wants to be a people’s film playing Jung-min’s self-humiliation to indirectly shame unnecessary corruptive powers. Does it matter if a mayor’s wife is a pop dancer? If genuine, course it doesn’t! But final words of ‘trashy TV dramas generally get the best ratings’ (think political points here) and Jung-min’s passion that parents don’t own their kids and so shouldn’t govern their dreams, likewise a populace shouldn’t be pigeon holed with limited dreams also, makes for thoughtful satire.
