I'm a Cyborg, But That's OK


Meeting someone who shares your unusual view on life can make everything OK. Cha Young Goon (Im Soo Jung) is a young woman who works at a manufacturing plant assembling radios. But she secretly believes she’s a cyborg. When she tries to “recharge” herself by implanting electrical wires into her slashed wrists, it is viewed as a suicide attempt, and Young Goon is sent to a mental institution known as New World. There, she refuses to eat because she believes cyborgs don’t eat human food and instead licks batteries to get the energy she needs. She also spends her days intently listening to the radio for cyborg instructions and talking to vending machines and other electrical appliances. Young Goon meets fellow patient Park Il Soon (Rain), a former electrician who has been hospitalized for anti-social behavior and kleptomania. Il Soon believes he can steal other people’s souls, which he often parades around through his handmade rabbit masks. When Young Goon is on the brink of death because of her severe malnutrition, is Il Soon the only person who can figure out a way to save her? “I’m a Cyborg, But That’s OK” is a 2006 South Korean film directed by Park Chan Wook. The film won the Alfred Bauer Award at the 57th Berlin International Film Festival and was chosen as the opening film for the Hong Kong International Film Festival. Rain won the Best New Actor award at the 43rd Baeksang Awards for his role in this film.
