I'm Cyborg But That's Ok

First of all, I feel betrayed by my own stupid idea hehehe...may be I shouldn't believe all the bias review that seems to me like they were trying to make it look bad...or maybe it's me who being always in a different point of view with everyone...after reading so many reviews about this movie that make it sound not cool at all...I've decided not to watch it until now...but after watching it...I guess all **I mean some of them**the reviews was not telling the truth about what the movie trying to tell us.

This is what I think, well it's depends on what u guyz think wouldn't know what a pshyco thinking, or what they manage to do, how they create an illusion around them, how they satisfied their needs and how they describe about life...this is what the movie trying to tell us...well of coz this is not the love story that you wanna watch if u're so into the typical type of storyline...but still u can find one in the movie without trying to show it clearly...come on how do u think a pshyco express their u tend think they really understand what is love...instead of referring them as pshyco now i think these pshyco people is actually  having a great life in their own way ^___^.

Besides, at least I get the idea why they manage to gain all the attention and you really think it's because Rain was in the cast? well one of the reason maybe...but the actors line is quite great...the other pshyco patient make it even interesting...

If you think you gonna watch it...first you have to put aside all the reviews you have read...and stop hoping for a similarity in a up a little bit...only that way you'll understand what they trying to tell you....especially the ending part hahaha it's supposed to be 18+ so if u're not getting the idea that means u're still underage Big Smile

Finger tingling, hearts throbbing,

When love is at stake,
It's OK To Be a Cyborg!.


Introducing the best couple of the Mod Asylum.

Thinks she is a cyborg/ Cha Young-goon.

Incredibly slender with really big eyes, Young-goon. She always carries a bag that is bigger than her, filled with PC mouse, a radio, has daily underwear, dentures, a clock etc. Because she thinks she is a cyborg and cannot eat, she carries around a lunch box full with batteries and worries about new ways to recharge herself. She enjoys talking with the vending machine and the lights and sneaks inside a grandfather clock without hesitation. She is the most unique patient, even in the Mod Asylum.

Thinks it's ok that she is a cyborg/ Park Il-soon.

Tall and innocent with a warm smile, Il-soon.
Due to a painful memory when he was young he wears variuos masks and thinks he might vanish one day. He steals other people things, traits, specialities and identities. And thus, he is all around talented man recognized by the patientsa of the Mod Asylum. He is pure hearted man who thinks he can do anything for the new patient, Young-goon.



The film opened in South Korea on December 8 2006, and was the number one movie at the box office in its opening weekend, grossing $2,478,626, mostly on the strength of director Park Chan-wook and the star-power of Rain (Bi). However, in its second weekend, it plummeted by 76%, and by its third weekend it was pulled from most screens.

By its third weekend, I'm a Cyborg, But That's OK sold approximately 780,000 tickets. In contrast, Park's films JSA, Oldboy, and Sympathy for Lady Vengeance all had easily sold over 3 million. As such, I'm a Cyborg, But That's OK is regarded as a box office flop, although still critically acclaimed. This includes winning an Alfred Bauer Award at the 57th Berlin International Film Festival and being selected as the opening film for the HK International Film Festival. Also, at the 43rd Baeksang Award in Korea in 2007, Rain (Jung Ji-Hoon) and Im Su-Jeong were nominated for New Best Actor and Best Actress. Rain won the award while Im Su-jeong lost to The Fox Family' Park Si-yeon.
