    Brave Citizen Review

    In the dynamic landscape of Korean dramas and films, Shin Hye-sun has emerged as a prominent figure, captivating audiences with her exceptional acting prowess and daring role choices. From the turning point of her acting career, the hysterical portrayal of a modern man trapped in a woman’s body in Joseon era Korea in “Mr. Queen”, to her latest appearance in the adrenaline-pumping action film “Brave Citizen” alongside the rising star, former U-Kiss member, Lee Jun Young.

    This collaboration of two emerging stars is a recipe destined for success. ‘Brave Citizen’ unfolds as an engaging narrative featuring a former star boxer-turned-contract high school teacher, thrust into a confrontation with the school’s most formidable bully—a tale that pulsates with exhilaration and intensity. Shin Hye-sun portrays So Si-min, a cheerful, bubbly, and charismatic teacher at a private high school, aspiring for a permanent position within the institution. However, survival as a contract teacher in this environment requires turning a blind eye to the apparent bullying orchestrated by the school’s notorious thug, Han Soo-Gang.

    Brave Citizen portrays how bullies and patriarchal forces prey on those least able to defend themselves. The reaction of the school and its students regarding the violent, brutal bullying of Go Jin Hyung, mirrors a society clouded by self-interest. This is illustrate, particularly, in scenes where school authorities and teachers accept expensive gifts from Han Soo-Gang’s step-mother in a bid to silence their objections. Ironically, this particular school boasts a bullying-free environment and has been acknowledged for the same.

    Thus, the film exposes the entrenched status quo, highlighting the nexus between criminals, the state, and capitalist powers. Han Soo-Gang’s immunity from repercussions for his violence stems from his influential family. Si-min’s attempt to address school bullying falls on deaf ears, ultimately leading to Han Soo-Gang’s intimidation of his teacher and the unexpected appearance of the masked Vigilante in the school.

    Furthermore, ‘Brave Citizen’ disrupts the stereotypical portrayal of a male hero in cinema. So-min strategically employs society’s patriarchal assumptions regarding male heroism, not only safeguarding her identity but also effectively challenging Soo-gang’s deeply ingrained male ego. She embodies the voice of all victims, rallying the school community to courageously confront injustice. This underscores how a single courageous voice possesses the potential to dismantle an oppressive system.

    The film and well as So Si-min, undeniably, shines brightest in the action sequences. Reports indicate that Shin Hye-sun dedicated six months of training for her role as the skilled boxer, Si-min. This dedication culminates in the gripping final boxing match showcased in ‘Brave Citizen,’ where Si-min astounds viewers with her breathtaking aerial kicks and calculated punches in the showdown against Soo-Gang. The scene is charged with emotion, compelling viewers to fervently root for the triumph of good over evil. Lee Jun-Young’s portrayal of the ruthless bully is equally noteworthy.

    However, catering to action enthusiasts, the film tends to exaggerate certain events. A prime example is the highly anticipated showdown between the masked vigilante and Han Soo-Gang, heavily promoted as a much anticipated school event.

    In essence, the film promises a thrilling viewing experience for action enthusiasts. Its capacity to evoke strong emotions in the viewers towards diverse forms of injustice and its aim to raise awareness about bullying as a silent but destructive force, renders it a truly memorable watch.
