"'Korean society continually asks you the question of, "Whose side are you on?" and forces you to really come out and reveal what stance you have whether it’s politics or whatever,' Jung said. 'And I really feel like that also shows quite a violent side of society.'"They don't shy away from politics either:
“When you take a look into the South Korean society, there are a lot of other issues beneath the surface,' he told me. 'There’s a lot of class struggle and economic struggles and generational conflicts as well.'
The refusal of Korean society to address these very real issues in favor of 'communist vs. anticommunist' rhetoric has left Korean youth pissed off. (In the film, Jang describes the three big issues facing Korean youth: no money, no culture, no time.) They are tired of the zealous performative nationalism and capitalist-driven misery imposed on them. In fact, they threw a president out of office over it."I can't claim to understand the entirety of the political situation in South Korea, but the song and video are rad.
