The King of Pigs

Kaboom Animation Festival

After 15 years, Jong-suk and Kyung-min meet up to talk about their turbulent high school past. Their meeting brings up dark memories of how they were treated back then: the kids were classified by their wealth, grades and stature. Jong-suk and Kyung-min were the “pigs” at the bottom, bullied by a ruling class known as “dogs.” The King of Pigs is a dark tale about class in South Korean society, and won three awards at the 2011 Busan International Film Festival.
