About the Film:

Part of Seoul Cinema 2015 

Directed by Jang Jin. South Korea, 2014, 125 mins. Korean with English subtitles.

In Jang Jin’s masterful transgender cop thriller, Ji Wook (Cha Seungwon) is the ultimate hard man—a battle-scarred cop who gets his man by any means necessary. He is revered as a legend in the police force and at the same time feared among the mafia for his brutality in cracking down on crime. Yet, beneath this cool, macho appearance is a secret that Ji Wook has been hiding from the world for years: she’s a woman trapped in a man’s body. But just as Ji Wook finally makes up his mind to live as a woman, a criminal gang he once dismantled sets out to get their revenge and he has to take them down once more. Matters are complicated by Ji Wook’s colleague, Jangmi (model-turned-actress Esom), a female cop working to trap a serial rapist, who is also harboring feelings for Ji Wook. Man on High Heels delivers all the shocks and ultraviolence we’ve come to expect from Korean crime thrillers, but with a truly subversive twist.
