당신의 눈과 귀를 의심하게 할 취향저격 ‘판소리 복서’, 그가 온다!
한때 복싱 챔피언 유망주로 화려하게 주목 받던 전직 프로복서 ‘병구’(엄태구). 그러나 한 순간의 지울 수 없는 실수로 복싱협회에서 영구 제명이 되어버린 그는 ‘박관장’(김희원)의 배려로 체육관의 허드렛일을 도맡아 하며 살아가고 있다. 다시 복싱을 시작하려는 마음은 있지만 설상가상 뇌세포가 손상되는 ‘펀치드렁크(punchdrunk)’ 진단까지 받게 된 ‘병구’. 어느 날 ‘병구’가 뿌린 전단지를 들고 체육관을 찾은 신입관원 ‘민지’(이혜리)는 복싱에 대한 ‘병구’의 순수한 열정을 발견하고 그의 든든한 지원군이 되어준다. ‘민지’의 응원에 잊고 있었던 미완의 꿈이자 자신만의 스타일인 ‘판소리 복싱’을 완성하기로 결심한 ‘병구’는 생애 마지막이 될지도 모를 가장 무모한 도전을 시작한다.“

A disgraced, terminally ill boxer meets a girl and strives to return to the ring for a final bout. That may sound like a familiar inspirational sports melodrama formula, but writer-director Jung Hyuk Gi's My Punch-Drunk Boxer adds an offbeat tone and an unexpected musical element into the midst – pansori.
Pansori is a traditional form of musical storytelling that is performed by a singer and a drummer. Im Kwon Taek famously depicted this Korean folk art form in his films Sopyonje and Beyond the Years. Bringing together two unlikely worlds, My Punch-Drunk Boxer introduces the curious concept of "pansori boxing." Protagonist Byeong Goo (Um Tae Goo) used to train by shadowboxing to the rhythm of the pansori drum played by his girlfriend. The two shared a dream of excelling in pansori and boxing, but mistakes and tragedies cut their dreams short.
When we meet Byeong Goo, he is a glumly awkward 29-year-old who has been diagnosed with CTE. With the neurodegenerative disease advancing quickly and his days numbered, he meets the cute and perky Min Ji (Hye Ri) at the boxing gym he works at. Supported by Min Ji and his coach (Kim Hee Won), Byeong Goo picks up pansori boxing again and aims for a comeback, no matter the risks.
My Punch-Drunk Boxer was expanded from a short that director Jung Hyuk Ki shot in college as his graduation film. Both melancholic and uplifting, the feature film version very much retains a quirky indie vibe, and Um Tae Goo creates a distinct presence as the oddball hero. Whispering out lines in his unmistakable scratchy voice, the actor manages to appear physically intimidating yet bashfully awkward.
The most striking part of My Punch-Drunk Boxer, though, is the way pansori is organically integrated into the film. Besides the drumming in the story, there is also occasional pansori narration that acts as rousing background music and voice-over storytelling. Presenting its unconventional idea in unassuming manner, My Punch-Drunk Boxer certainly has me convinced that pansori boxing would make a great training regimen and performance art.
