Classic coming-of-age story
"Yalkae, A Joker In High School" begins as a comedy before radically transforming into melodrama for the film's final forty minutes. Fresh-faced Lee Seung Hyun stars as Na Doo-soo, the 'yalkae' or mischief-maker of the movie's title. Doo-soo and his buddy Yong-ho (Jin Yoo Young) are inveterate class clowns and pranksters forced to repeat their second year of high school. The film's first hour features lots of classroom comedy of a familiar sort. The comedy, however, sometimes leaves the viewer feeling uncomfortable as Doo-soo's pranks can be quite cruel. Bespectacled brainiac Ho-cheol (Kim Jeong Hoon), the hardest-working boy in class, is a particular target of the mischief-makers' bullying.
Doo-soo's irresponsible behavior eventually goes too far, causing the alienation of his favorite teacher, the souring of his relationship with the girl he adores, and dramatic unforeseen consequences for one of his classmates. The resulting melodrama can seem a bit over the top, but its simple, unsophisticated, good-natured earnestness eventually wins the viewer over and yields a satisfying ending. While the production values of "Yalkae", particularly its editing and incidental music, are of the bargain basement variety, its performances are convincing and its direction is sturdy. They don't make 'em like this anymore!
