Hit the Night

Bam-chi-gi

Jeong Gayoung

A young filmmaker is doing research for her new project. She approaches a nice boy and bombards him with questions about his love life, one question even more intimate than another. Hesitantly, he agrees to cooperate, even though after a while he starts to realise that this girl wants more than just answers.
In Hit the Night, Jeong Gayoung herself plays the leading role as the sassy, rather lonely young woman who apparently is not trying this for the first time. She slowly gets the man drunk, finding out just about everything about him (how often he masturbates, what he understands by love), but he remains more or less immune to her charms. She in turn is not interested in the nice guy she meets later in the evening in a karaoke bar.
In a simple style obviously reminiscent of the work of Hong Sangsoo, Jeong still manages to develop her own recipe; mildly melancholic, mixed with rebellion and a dash of feminism.
