becomes the classroom monitor when the teacher leaves, he intends to
rat out Jae-min (Min-sae Son) for talking—unless Jae-min surrenders his
birthday gift, a brand-new PlayStation. Jae-min hopes to turn the
tables with fellow student Joon-young (Min-seok Kim), who wears the

with a rather blunt final image that displays Ahn’s dim view regarding
the corruption of power. A U.S. premiere. MOST, Saturday, May 3, 4:15 p.m.
