Synopsis

Young-jun decides to buy a top grade MacBook, but he gets ripped off when trying to get a good deal. After reporting it to the police, but getting no help from them, Young-jun heads to China to try to catch the scammer.

Program Note

Director Back Seung-kee is famous for his persistence in minor career path with his Super Virgin (2012) and Super Origin (2016). His latest, Super Margin , seems to be pretty ‘back to normal’ at first as you can see in the title. The start scene looks also pretty normal. Young-jun(Son Lee-yong) just spends a ‘Peaceful’ day whilst a ‘Peaceful’ BGM is playing, with a ‘Peaceful’ atmosphere. Then comes the twist. He becomes the victim of a scam trying to buy a MacBook to write a script for his crush, Ji-na(Park Ji-na), for casting her in his own movie. Good bye to the ‘Peaceful’ norm. He flies to China to catch the scammers on his own. Too big a scale and budget for a peace of minor film? Don’t worry, it’s just a China town in Incheon, Korea. This kind of thick-skinned sense of the director is shown again in the scene where he shot the action sequence on the rooftop with a drone in the sky. The cut-out scenes which shows how delightfully the movie was taken will flow with its closing credits where you can be ‘Peaceful’ly seated after the chaos. (HUH Nam-woong)
