I Haven't Done Anything
OH Tae-kyung, once an up-and-coming actor, starts a YouTube channel as a breakthrough. He starts to produce content where he grants people's wishes, borrowing a concept from the movie “Oldboy”. Becoming a flop, and close to becoming just yet another broken toy, one day a subscriber asks him to uncover the story of a man standing alone with a picket sign saying “I haven't done anything yet”. Tae-kyung's insistence and shameless pig-headedness will be a gate to a whole new adventure for us.
Besides a great sense of humour, director Park Sang-min has excellent editing skills, taking us on a frenzied journey along the charms of personal internet broadcasting, full of twists and seemingly trivial and empty moves. Masking his filming style with a clumsy streaming tone (such a risk for his first feature film), Park makes the story burst forth full of curious characters, multiple chats, predictable trolls, diverse emojis, multi-screen galore and plenty of stickers, all to bring us closer to the story, all to get more subscribers to the channel.
It would be fun if it wasn't almost tragic: the immediate takes the place of the genuine, and the next action erases the previous mistake, the rush of online content. But come on, let it flow, it's hilarious. A funny, although at times serious statement about the YouTube culture (or is it a bubble?). An unexpected comedy where nothing is what it seems.
