YesAsia Editorial Description
The career of director Lee Jae Yong is amongst the most unique in Chungmuro, and his new film Dasepo Naughty Girls is nothing different, a quirky comedy adapted from a sexually explicit (the film is a little tamer, but still very raunchy), hilarious and extremely popular online comic. Mosseulmo (lit. useless!) High has a peculiar curriculum, giving a new meaning to sexual education. Its students struggle week in and week out in between S&M lessons, mass venereal diseases and teachers dating minors. Amongst all those strange characters is a girl so poor she literally wears poverty on her sleeves (Kim Ok Bin of Over The Rainbow), a one-eyed outcast (Lee Kyeon of Yeon Gaesomun and Hello, Francesca) and her stunningly beautiful sister (who, go figure, takes a leak with the boys. I wonder why...), a chubby teacher who likes to dress like Sailor Moon while dating his students, and that's only the tip of the iceberg. They study (very little), they date (a lot), and in between you also get your dose of dance skits. It's like Sex is Zero meets Bollywood!

Professional Review of "Dasepo Naughty Girls (DVD) (Limited Edition) (Korean Version)"
This professional review refers to Dasepo Naughty Girls (VCD) (Korea Version)
Although Dasepo Naughty Girls, based upon a sexually explicit online comic called Multi-Cell Girl, to an extent marks a surprising change of direction for Korean helmer Lee Jae Yong, best known for dramas such as Asako in Ruby Shoes and The Affair, it can perhaps be seen as a continuation of his exploration of the same issues he tackled in his saucy and sumptuous period drama The Untold Scandal. The two films certainly have a lot in common, poking fun at the hypocrisy regarding morality and sex often inherent in Korean society, as well as its treatment of outsiders and the ever growing gap between the rich and poor. In Dasepo Naughty Girls, Lee approaches these subjects head on, and with a surreal, sugar-coated style drenched with camp craziness and packed with off-the-wall musical numbers, making for a viewing experience that is strangely innocent and sweet considering its constant taboo-baiting.
The film does not have much of a plot as such, and basically revolves around a number of students at a high school aptly named 'No Use High' and their encounters with sexually transmitted diseases, underage prostitution, strangely alluring transsexuals, demented cross dressing gangsters, and even aliens. These include the poverty stricken 'Poor Girl' (played by Kim Ok Bin, also in Over the Rainbow), a rich transfer student from Switzerland (Park Jin Woo, My Little Bride), and a virginal Cyclops (actor Lee Kyeon of Yeon Gaesomun and Hello, Francesca), all of whom run into a variety of wacky scrapes and compromising encounters.
Director Lee does try to work in a plot in the later stages of the film, involving students at the school somehow being brainwashed into working hard and abandoning their promiscuous ways, though this is drowned out by the constant barrage of risqué gags and mock-karaoke music videos. Inevitably, as with any film which is basically a series of scatological comic sketches, there are a fair few which fall flat, and as such the pace is somewhat variable, with a rather dry section in the middle where most of the jokes seem to revolve around excessive mugging by the young cast.
However, for the most part Dasepo Naughty Girls is both funny and inventive, with some genuinely hilarious scenes, especially those involving Anthony's struggle with his feelings for a transsexual school girl/boy. Although a lot of the film's jokes are based around slapstick humour and crude sexual gags, Lee also runs a nice line in social commentary, some of which involving class attitudes and materialism is surprisingly scathing and subtle, while others are simply bizarre, such as Poor Girl having a small grey figure called 'poverty' hanging on her back for most of the running time. And then there are the frequent appearances of weird stereotypes from various religions who run across the screen waving their arms.
The film works well as a satire of modern Korean society, with its bubblegum flavour proving arguably more effective than other more po-faced efforts. What is perhaps most surprising about the film is that it features not one iota of nudity or indeed any scenes of graphic sexuality of any kind. Whilst this may unfortunately prove to be a turn off for viewers expecting another Sex is Zero, to be honest, the inclusion of any skin in a film which revolves around such a young cast would have turned it into something rather more creepy, and would largely have missed the point. As a result, the film has a strangely naïve and moral heart, and has a genuinely uplifting and positive feel, an impression furthered by Lee's lively direction, along with the insanely bright and cheerful set design and the bouncy musical interludes.
Whilst Dasepo Naughty Girls, like other hard to categorise Korean films such as Save the Green Planet, runs the risk of being alienated due to its surreal approach, it works well on many different levels and deserves to attain some kind of cult status at least. Although at times unfocused, it is certainly original, and makes a brave stab at tackling the usual issues seen in Korean cinema in a decidedly refreshing manner.

In the early going it appears likely that Lee Jae-Yong's adaptation of popular online comic Dasepo Naughty Girls might just do the impossible and dethrone Yudai Tamaguchi's Cromartie High School in the absurdly hysterical high school comedy department. Shot with a candy-coated color scheme and leaping from a song and dance number featuring a fetching swarm of pink clad go-go dancers to a mass exodus for the doctor's office on news that a teacher has tested positive for syphilis to clandestine video game prostitution to ... well, you get the picture. Dasepo Naughty Girls begins as a rapid fire candy fluff spin on high school life that is every bit as absurd, high energy and sketch oriented as Yamaguchi's Cromartie, only this film boasts much higher production values.
But Korea just wouldn't be Korea if its films followed their expected arcs, and over the course of its run time Dasepo finds an unexpected heart, moving from full throttle comedy with flourishes of character to an odd little character piece sprinkled liberally with bizarrely comic touches. It is a cheery, good-natured bit of work considerably less Naughty than you'd expect from a film featuring liberal doses of both transvestite and transexual characters - "saucy" would be a better description - and more than a little different than you may expect, but it is, nonetheless, a very good time. I just wish those go-go dancers got more screen time.
Plot? There really isn't much, particularly in the early going. What there is is a stack of characters, each of which are given their moments in a series of comic sketches. There is the pretty, shy girl who wears her poverty as a literal monkey on her back. There is the wealthy, ridiculously over-groomed, Swiss exchange student. There is the cyclops, his pre-op transexual sister, the supply teacher with a fondness for frilly underpants and spanking, the transvestite mob boss, the secret Eros cult, the evil principal with his secret plans to enforce virginity and good study habits, and so much more. The film skips easily from character to character, from moment to moment, passing only long enough to deliver the requisite punchlines before moving on to the next scene. In the early going it is essentially rapid fire sketch comedy and as with all films of the type, some sketches work better than others but the overall quality is unusually high.
As the film progresses the focus gradually begins to narrow until it eventually keys on two primary characters, with forays into other territory becoming increasingly limited. The poor girl is forcibly "adopted" by the aforementioned transvestite gangster and the two of them together subsequently kidnapped by the secret Eros cult, triggering a string of events that gradually teach our young heroine to take a degree of pride in herself. On the flip side, pretty boy Anthony, so used to having everything he wants, needs to be taken down a notch or two, a task achieved by having him fall in love first with Cyclop's transexual "sister" Double Eye and subsequently with the terminally shy impoverished girl. Yes, the situations these characters run through are ridiculous in the extreme, but Lee is smart enough to treat the characters themselves - if not the world they live in - as real people, and the performances are strong enough that they actually work, and work well, as real people dealing with real issues that do actually effect the masses in our considerably less technicolor and relatively transvestite-free world. By gradually toning down the insanity as the film progresses - though it never comes even remotely close to disappearing - Lee may back off on the humor quotient, but he greatly raises the lasting value of the piece. Continuing full out may well have yielded a few more laughs but likely would have also reduced the film to a piece of disposable fluff, funny the first time but offering little on repeat viewing, but as it is, there's actually a bit of meat to dig into - not a three course meal, by any stretch, but certainly a tasty little snack.
Lee's script is a smart piece of work, the humor frequently laugh-out-loud funny, the pretty young cast also very talented, and the whole piece edited together with a crackling sense of style and an innate understanding of when to push things along hard and fast, and when the work is better served by slowing it down and letting it breathe. The sex-comedy angle is considerably less prevalent in the finished film than was suggested in the marketing materials - if you go looking for titillation you will be disappointed - with Lee consistently choosing to mock attitudes toward sex rather than spread flesh on the screen.
On to presentation. The Korean DVD release features a completely unique and absolutely fabulous piece of packaging. Pull this thing out in public and you will draw a crowd. Both attractive and functional, the packaging is a three-part design with two thick slabs of bright neon plastic on either side of a glittering double sided DVD tray. The three pieces are held together by a single bolt at the top that holds the neon pieces in place while allowing them to pivot out of the way so the discs can be accessed. To keep the protective pieces from swinging freely, the entire package is then housed in a clear plastic slip case. I've never seen a package quite like this before and it's fantastic.
Disc one contains the feature itself, presented in an anamorphic transfer in the proper 2.35:1 aspect ratio. You get 5.1 and DTS soundtracks and excellent English subtitles. The transfer is clean with excellent contrasts and colors that really pop off the screen. Disc two features the set of special features, none of which include English subtitles. There is the normal range of production interviews and behind the scenes reels but the interesting piece, even without subtitles, is the extensive collection of deleted scenes. When you have as many major characters as this film does, you inevitably end up shooting a lot of material with each that doesn't make it in as the final focus emerges during the editing, and there are a healthy assortment of those scenes included here, giving extended looks at a good number of characters given short duty in the film itself.

March 23, 2010
"Dasepo Naughty Girls" is a wild, bizarre high school comedy in which anything can happen ... and often does. There are goofy song and dance numbers, leering teachers, venereal diseases, potty humor, an otherworldly school principal, a cross-dresser, a hermaphrodyte, a cyclops, lots of saucy students, a mother engaged in a pyramid scheme comprised of selling pyramids, and, at the center of it all, a girl (Kim Ok-Bin) so poor that 'poverty' (looking like a washed-out plush toy) clings to her back.
As the poor girl, Kim Ok-Bin generates the only believable human interest in the film, but "Dasepo Naughty Girls" is not really about generating human interest; every time we begin to care about the fate of this (mostly) good-hearted girl, the movie shifts gears and serves up more low-brow comedy. The result is decidedly uneven; many of the jokes fall flat, much of the weirdness goes way over the top, yet the film's 'anything goes' spirit keeps the viewer watching to see just what kind of zany mayhem the filmmakers will serve up next. For those who aren't easily shocked, "Dasepo" is worth a look.

FANtastic Service Dasepo Style
This film is a challenging fantasy comedy satire surrounding the lives of school students in a free for all school based on a Korean manhwa (or manga) comic with a visually surreal style and is a very highly entertaining movie. Its high octane comedy features a mix of Japanese Anime, Korean high school jinks, 1960's psychedelica with an added dash of Lemony Snickets (a one eyed Cyclops is one of the kids!). It has great pace, style and a very funny script that should entertaine many people to come. Its a brave film, too, and will be viewed as another expression concerning the tough Korean education system (like the "Yeogo Gwedam" or "Once Upon a Time in High School") but with comedy satire instead of horror or politic. Dasepo Girl is also a musical of sorts, there being a number of character singing songs throughout, but not enough, I think, to suggest its a complete comedy musical. There is a good catchy opening theme (featuring some dancing psychedelic 60's girls) that gets you straight into the surreal mood of this pretty crazy film.
The main character played by young actress Ok-Bin Kim (Voice Letter) plays her part wonderfully as the povety stricken girl and she seems to have added yet another good movie to her resume. In the dance scene she certainly knows how to shake her thang! All the cast shine really well, too, and help give the film its zestfull atmosphere.
Although the DVD cover suggests promiscuous shenanigans of free sex, don't expect an high octane comedy like "Sex is Zero", but more of a film with subtle titilation and suggestive overtones played with farcical comedy scenes as it main ingredients. Its a tame pantomime type of sex comedy than a full on sex comedy! (So you won't necessarily have to hide the DVD under the bed when you get it!). Its rather mild considering its subject matter and although it seems to tackle the manhwa's controversial sub issues successfully, it deliveries them with comedy and irony in a lively style that won me over! Its a really fun film to watch and the cast and crew must have really enjoyed the whole jazz of the experience in making it. One scene with Ok-Bin's character and a male school girl cross dresser will be the talk of this movie, methinks, and its this highlight plus many other funny scenes that will recommend it in future.
Well, who is this film for? Considering all the comedy and the slapstick anime type visuals and it being based on a Korean manhwa, certainly for anime fans and fans of the comic, certainly those who like "Sex Is Zero", "See You After School" and "Conduct Zero", but maybe also for those who have had a romance go wrong (or watched too many saad moovies) as this funny, creatively zestful (certainally bonkers) film will change your spirits. Go on, give it a try....you know you want to! And what ever happens, I'm sure you will at least be whistling/singing (screaming) that catchy tune afterwards. Enjoy!
