The President's Barber (2004)

15 05/05/2004 (KR) HistoryDramaComedy 1h 56m

A time when a bad haircut can get you killed.


A well-meaning but politically naive barber gets pulled into the inner circle of the South Korean dictator Park Chung-Hee, with rather baleful consequences for his hapless family. This sharp political satire covers roughly twenty years in South Korean political history, from the viewpoint of the barber's son.
