Program Note
In 1999, a robber breaks into a supermarket in small town, killing an elderly woman and running away. The police identify three boys as the culprits and quickly close the investigation. Soon after, Hwang Juncheol (Seol Kyunggu), who is newly appointed as the chief of the squad, is convinced that Choi Woosung (Yu Junsang), a high-ranking police officer, and his team manipulated the case for a quick result. Hwang attempts a reinvestigation and retrial with his unique persistent and robust investigation capacity. Based on a true story, The Boys is the latest feature by Chung Jiyoung, a director known for creating compelling films that blend fact and fiction. The movie unfolds a small hero narrative that warms the hearts of the weak while enhancing the genre′s fun by moving back and forth between the past and the present. Star-studded casts stand out, including Seol Kyunggu, Yu Junsang, Jin Kyung, Heo Sungtae, and Yeom Hyeran. (JUNG Hanseok)
