About This DVD
Two young men, Seung-woo and Jae-hyun, serve as hosts or male escorts for a discreet private women's club in a post district of Seoul. In the backdrop of Seoul's fast-changing modern lifestyle, these two young try to live the upbeat life of the affluent crowd by raking in money at the club even though their personal lives become ruined by the day. A realistic look into the dark businesses that go on in the rampant city life of today's Seoul metropolitan.
Young, stylish director Yoon Jong-bin is releasing "The Moonlight of Seoul"
(aka. "Beastie Boys"), his second feature film starring Ha Jeong-woo. The
gleaming cast also includes singer-turned-actor Yoon Kye-sang and up and
upcoming actress Yoon Jin-seo. Director Yoon and Ha reunite for another guy
movie dealing with a provoking subject matter after their critically acclaimed
homosexual soldier story "The Unforgiven" (2006), which made both of them
landmarks on the cinematic map.
Away from army barracks, "Moonlight" takes us to the posh strip of Cheongdam-dong in the heart of downtown Seoul. When night falls, the glitzy Louis Vuitton road shop and high-end art galleries go into deep slumber and another world awakens. But "Moonlight" goes beyond your idea of a thrilling nightlife. It's about excessive partying in all its capitalistic glory: rich but lonely ladies (mostly 30-something businesswomen) flock to an upscale "room salon" (bar with private rooms) and pay for the services of strapping, young male hosts. These charming "eye candies", impeccably dressed and styled at a beauty salon, are available in all types ? funny, good-looking, talented singers or dancers. They pour drinks and entertain with witty lines, croon love songs and even put on little magic shows. This is the male version of "10 peuro" or 10 percent, an actual super luxurious room salon with hostesses who are literally in the "top percentile" of the beauty hierarchy.
Yoon Kye-sang stars as the handsome Seung-woo, the bar's "ace" or most popular host. But having grown up in a wealthy and now bankrupt family, he claims to be different from the others and thinks of the job as just a passing phase leading to something greater in life. Then he meets Ji-won (Yoon Jin-seo), a client, and the seducer becomes the seduced. Ha Jeong-woo stars as Jae-hyeon, a cheeky guy who manages the younger hosts. He's a veteran parasite who has women opening up their wallets with just a few words. Although Jae-hyeon lives with his longtime girlfriend (Seung-woo's sister), he shamelessly seduces other women and even brings them home. But maintaining a stylish lifestyle lands him in debt, and he must, as in host parlance, "go into construction" or schematically lure women for cash.
