About This DVD

Blood is thicker than water, or so the saying goes. Dramas like Bad Family and Goodbye Solo and films like Family Ties, however, show that the Korean concept of family, at least from a pop culture point of view, is changing rapidly to encompass non-traditional models. Even before all these works portrayed the alternative family, a little indie film with unknown actors called Five is Too Many was already making splashes at local and foreign festivals for its breezy, cheerful atmosphere and mixture of intelligent commentary with irreverent characters. Directed by first-timer Ahn Seul Ki, a former film critic and director of short films like Inflexible Vending Machines and The Comprehensive Dictionary for Living, Five is Too Many won the Audience Award at the 2005 CJ Asian Independent Film Festival.
Dong Kyu is your average student who ran away from home. He's currently staying at his friend Cheol Min's house, but after getting fired from his part-time milk delivery job, he finds a new way to make money: reporting companies that use illegal disposable goods. While taking pictures of a takeout house where Shi Nae works, Dong Kyu is accidentally hit by a stone she threw, falls unconscious, and loses his memory. Now Shi Nae has to take responsibility for her acts, so she takes him in. Soon the little room she lives in accumulates more unlikely guests - a fast food stall owner, a girl from Yanbian with an over-the-top accent, and more. These complete strangers come together into some semblance of a family. With all the usual and not so usual family problems!
