Program Note

Underdog is an animation made by two directors, Oh Sung-yoon and Lee Choon-baek, director of Leafie, a Hen into the Wild (2011), which has rewritten Korean animation box office history with 2.2 million admissions. Having taken 6 years to complete, this animation is about the dogs’ journey to find real freedom, happiness and their true selves. The long preparation time and efforts are reflected in the excellent quality of the graphics, the distinctive individuality of all the dogs, especially lead character Moongchi, Jjang-a and Gaeko. The voice-overs by actors like Doh Kyung-soo, Park So-dam, Park Chul-min, make the story three dimensional in giving a voice to the characters. As the title suggests, this film delivers both deep emotions and a sense of fun through a group of alienated characters in their journey to find a beautiful world together. Underdog showcases a new realm of Korean feature animation both in subject matter and expression. The dogs’ journey to their utopia, and the scenery they witness on the way foresee the recent reality that war has ended and is heading for peace. (MO Eun-young)
