London Korean Film Night: Fasten Your Seatbelt (2013)

5562

Actor Ha Jung-woo’s debut feature as a film director, Fasten Your Seatbelt is set inside the business class cabin on a Bobby Airlines flight from Tokyo to Seoul. This plane is full of absurd character, both crew members and passengers such as a businessman, a monk and a paparazzo. The main character Ma Jun-kyu (Jeong Gyeong-ho) is a huge hallyu star having starred in the film Mr. Profanity and hurriedly caught this flight after his scandal with a Japanese pop group member had made tabloid headlines. Everyone boarding the flight including the flight attendants recognise Ma Jun-kyu and interacted with him in an over-the-top, unreasonable manner. After the plane fails twice to land and is detoured due to stormy weather, panic begins to set in. To make matters worse, Ma Jun-kyu himself faces a psychological breakdown of lifetime on board. Will he survive this trip and safely land to see another day?
