I'm a Cyborg, but That's OK

A madcap fantasy from the inimitable director of Lady Vengeance and Old Boy.
Young-goon (Lim Soo-jung) is a cyborg, and needs an electrical current to survive. It makes perfect sense to her, therefore, to cut open her wrist and plug herself into the mains; to eschew food in favour of licking batteries; and to only befriend other machines. The world at large seems to find her behaviour odd, however, and duly confines her to a mental hospital... There, she strikes up a touching bond with Il-sun (Jung Ji-hoon), who has an uncontrollable tendency to steal other people's souls. A musical romance unlike any other, with extraordinary visual ideas (hold on for the airborne Alpine yodeling sequence) and lovely performances from two of South Korea's most revered pop culture icons.
