YesAsia Editorial Description

Premiering at the Director's Fortnight of the 2014 Cannes Film Festival, director Kim Seong Hun's crime action thriller brings new meaning to having A Hard Day. Lee Seon Gyun (Helpless) stars as a beleaguered cop whose attempt to cover up a crime throws him unwittingly into the middle of an even bigger crime conspiracy. Impeccably paced and chockfull of twists and turns, A Hard Day sends audiences on an intense and unpredictable roller coaster of action and suspense.

Homicide detective Ko Gun Su (Lee Seon Gyun) just lost his mother and his team is under internal investigation at work. While driving back from his mother's funeral, he accidentally runs over a man on a remote country road. Ko hides the body in his own mother's coffin. A few days later, he is shocked to come across the victim's profile in another ongoing case, which may eventually lead back to him and his desperate cover-up. Before Ko can figure out what's going on, detective Park Chang Min (Jo Jin Woong, Hwayi: A Monster Boy) suddenly appears to threaten him. Park knows the truth – and he wants the body back.

This edition includes commentary, deleted scenes, Cannes footage, VIP premiere, trailer and other special features.

■ 줄거리

까칠한 가해자와 위협적인 목격자가 만났다!

어머니의 장례식 날, 급한 연락을 받고 경찰서로 향하던 형사 ‘고건수’(이선균). 아내의 이혼 통보와 갑작스런 내사 소식까지… 스트레스 폭발 직전의 감정 상태로 어두운 밤길을 달리던 건수는 실수로 사람을 치는 사고를 일으킨다. 순간 당황한 건수는 시체를 자신의 차 트렁크에 싣고 장례식장으로 향한다. 되돌릴 수 없는 상황! 어떻게든 이 상황을 모면해야 하는 건수는 누구도 찾을 수 없는 곳, 바로 어머니의 관 속에 시체를 숨긴다.
장례를 마치고 경찰서로 돌아온 건수는 하필이면 자신이 저지른 뺑소니 사건에 대한 수사를 맡게 된다. 그리고 사건의 모든 것을 알고 있다는 목격자인 것 같은 의문의 전화를 받게 된다. 그 목격자는 바로 형사 박창민(조진웅)으로 뺑소니 사고로 사망한 이광민의 시체를 자기 눈 앞에 데려다 놓으라며 계속해서 협박을 하고… 수소문 끝에 박창민의 마약과 돈을 이광민이 가지고 있었다는 사실을 알게 된다. 박창민이 그토록 이광민의 시체를 원했던 이유는 마약과 돈이 들어있는 금고 열쇠가 이광민 몸 안에 있기 때문이다.
이제 이광민의 시체를 박창민 앞으로 가져가야 할 상황! 고건수는 이 상황을 어떻게 헤쳐나갈 것인가? 되돌릴 수 없다면 끝까지 간다!

Professional Review of "A Hard Day (Blu-ray) (Korea Version)"

November 5, 2014

This professional review refers to A Hard Day (DVD) (2-Disc) (Korea Version)
Korean writer director Kim Seong Hun returns with A Hard Day, his first film since the offbeat 2006 comedy drama How the Lack of Love Affects Two Men. A dark, twisting thriller, the film is a change of pace for the second time helmer, and despite a lack of big name stars was somewhat of a sleeper hit at the domestic box office, pulling in over 3 million admissions after having premiered at the Director's Fortnight of the 2014 Cannes Film Festival.

Actor Lee Seon Gyun, a Hong Sang Soo regular who recently featured in the likes of Our Sunhi and Nobody's Daughter Haewon, headlines as corrupt homicide detective Ko Gun Su, under investigation by internal affairs for his misbehaviour. As the title suggests, Ko does indeed have a very bad day through the course of the film, which opens with him running over and killing a man while driving to his mother's funeral on a dark and stormy night. After somehow managing to hide the body in his poor mother's coffin, he thinks his worries are over, until he starts getting threatening calls from a man claiming to have witnessed the event, and learns that his victim was in fact a wanted criminal. Desperately trying to cover things up, Ko lot worsens when the voice on the phone is revealed to be that of detective Park Chang Min (Jo Jin Woong, Hwayi: A Monster Boy), who has his own sinister motivations for getting his hands on the corpse.

The above synopsis only really serves to set in motion an increasingly complex and deadly chain of events, and A Hard Day is a film which it's best to go into knowing as little as possible. While there's nothing new here, Kim Seong Hun drawing heavily on familiar genre tropes, as well as a wide variety of other films, in particular the works of the Coen Brother and Hitchcock, it's an unpredictable tale, with plenty of unexpected reversals and surprises. This is mainly due to a sharp script, which Kim apparently spent several years perfecting, and which expertly suspends disbelief, keeping the viewer guessing and ensuring the film is both coherent and taut throughout despite frequently falling back on manipulative coincidences. Although upon reflection it doesn't make too much sense, the film is a huge amount of fun and a wonderfully tense ride while it lasts, thanks in no small part to a pitch black streak of cruel humour - indeed, the film arguably works best as an ever-escalating comedy of errors, never giving the viewer or its amusingly tortured protagonist a moment's rest. Clocking in at nearly two hours, it's a touch on the long side, though Kim works in enough violence and flashes of well-choreographed action alongside the creatively cruel laughs, ensuring that the pace never slackens, and there's a pleasing lack of the usual melodrama or filler material.

It also helps that Ko Gun Su serves as an interesting protagonist, and that the film never tries to crudely shoehorn in any redemptive character arc or any cheap doubt as to his guilt - much of the film's suspense comes directly from the fact that his ever-intensifying mess is entirely of his own making. Lee Seon Gyun is excellent in the lead role, and does a great job of making Ko somehow likeable despite his endless list of flaws, and Kim's script successfully strikes the difficult balance of making it highly enjoyable watching him squirm while at the same time hoping he'll somehow wriggle his way out of the dire situation. Jo Jin Woong is also excellent as the villainous Park, exuding over the top menace and unpredictable pantomime evil, and the film gets a great deal of mileage out of the battle and shifting power struggle between its two combatants. Though this might not sound like too glamorous a selling point for the film, the effort Kim has obviously put into his script really shines through, and reminds the viewer again of the importance of good writing, a fact sadly lost on so many filmmakers.

Certainly, it's this which gives A Hard Day a lift, and boosts it from being a solid genre entry to something more special, as well as a breathless couple of hours of mean-spirited fun. Hopefully marking a more permanent return for the clearly talented Kim Seong Hun, there's plenty here to impress, and the film is well-deserving of the cult status it seems to be quietly achieving.

Editor's Pick of "A Hard Day (Blu-ray) (Korea Version)"

Picked By Rockman
See all this editor's picks

December 18, 2014

He deserves it
The concept of A Hard Day is summed up fairly well by its simple title; a "hero" (more on those quotation marks later) runs into a series of bad luck that eventually snowballs into catastrophe. A story like this has been done so many times that it qualifies to be its own genre, but one thing sets A Hard Day apart from its genre counterparts: a mean sense of humor.

It's the night of his mother's funeral, but detective Ko Gun Su (Lee Seon Gyun) has something else on his mind: a sudden raid on his team from internal affairs. On the way back to the police station, Gun Su accidentally runs over and kills a man on a dark road. After getting rid of the body in the nick of time (in an absurd but nail-biting sequence), Gun Su receives a blackmail call from a mystery man who claims to have seen the crash. The man wants the body back, and he's willing to put Gun Su through hell for it.

With a morally reprehensible human being as the protagonist, the joy of A Hard Day comes from the thrill of the ride rather than its outcome. The audience doesn't have to sympathize with Gun Su or care about his survival to enjoy the consistently inventive script by writer/director Kim Seong Hun. Like looking at a well-built set of dominos or moving through a haunted house, the fun is in anticipating what Kim can come up with to get Gun Su out of trouble. Kim's script isn't clever in the traditional way. Instead, its brilliance lies in Kim's ability to generate suspense, shock and humor, as well as the way he carefully balances the three things – sometimes within the same scene.

For a film about corrupt cops committing and covering up heinous crimes, A Hard Day is a surprisingly effective crowd-pleaser thanks to its dark humor. None of the film's major characters can be considered good, but part of the humor comes from the audience knowing that the anti-hero deserves to have all his plans go wrong (and some of them do in spectacular fashion) and that he deserves to get his comeuppance. A Hard Day taps into the audiences' cynical side, daring them to have a good time through such a dark story.

A Hard Day can be described as a film that emphasizes form over content. It offers nothing new in the latter, but it does so many things right in the former that it reminds us the importance of good filmmaking craft. There are many great, original stories out there waiting to be told. However, judging by A Hard Day's box office success in Korea, it appears that audiences sometimes just want familiar stories that are told well.
