Areum Parkkang
2015 | 93min 6sec | color | DCP | No Subtitles



Areum wants to date with someone. However, today another blind date failed. Her friends give her advice. You don't love yourself! You should dress up and take care of yourself! Is it the true reason why I am not loved? Because I'm not pretty?


Director's Statement

To AREUM, lookism is a subject to be laughed at, as well as it is also a subject of self-reflexion. She always has critical attitude on lookism, but she never sets herself free from other people’s eyes. This film, is also a procedure to self-realise the internalised lookism, even for the director, Areum Parkkang, who feels such beauty the society expects on women to be uncomfortable and unjust. Who makes an individual? We think the critic against lookism should begin with this question. We hope this performance is a realistic and practical report on lookism.
