< see more 'Mother (Korean film)' questions
a question by May 29, 2011
Both "Mother" and "Lady Vengeance" feature a scene in which a confessed killer has to reenact the crime in front of a huge crowd. Is this something they actually make people do in Korea?

Tell you the truth, there was a movie called "The Chaser" that portrayed something similar and the public was outraged by the results. I really cannot answer that question for sure, but I know there were laws that were changed there recently including the legal age to engage in sex (used to be 20 before) which was portrayed in the Korean film "Green Chair"

I also thought it was peculiar when, after the car crash when the cop puts the handcuffs on Do-joon, he says "you have the right to remain silent." Do they really have Miranda rights in Korea, or is that a bit of subtitle editorializing?

I may ruffle some feathers here, but in Asia, especially in the early days, they did do such atrocities (Philippines is a prime example). It was a way for the movie to express that part of their country.
