IMDB Rating: 6.9 57 votes
Plot: The Go Go 70s movie transports viewers back to the 1970s in Korea - a very unusual period, one marked by repressive, autocratic dictatorship, but also by a tremendous surge in youth culture and a youth-driven renaissance in pop music.

Sang-gyu (Cho Seung-woo) is an ambitious vocalist of provincial trio wandering through a run-down American military camp decided to join other small band leading by talent guitarist Man-sik (Cha Seung-woo) to form their own rock band, 'The Devils'. The group scores an immediate, smashing success in old-fashioned, cramped with clampdowns Seol, and even greater popularity with the addition of a fashion-conscious dancer, Mimi (Sin Min-ah) who is captivating the audience with her splendid fashion and fringed, sexy dances. They are standing in the center of the banned night culture enjoying the explosive popularity of first night clubs full of young people rocking to the new music, enjoying the soul.

  • The movie is based on real story of Korean indie-rock group The Devils, who were the first in Korea to introduce American culture.
  • Man-sik character is played by charismatic indie rocker Cha Seung Woo, lead vocalist of The Moonshiners and former guitarist of punk band No Brain.

(overall rating: 6.1 out of 5 based on 3 reviews)
LoveHKfilm, by Kevin Ma source: http://www.lovehkfilm.com/panasia/go_go_70s.html
«Go Go 70s work best when Choi focuses on the music. Even though the music, comprised mostly of Korean covers of well-known American soul music, is average at best, Choi captures the live performances in a dynamic fashion, keeping the camera active within the crowd to give it an effective, "you are there" feeling that turns Go Go 70s temporarily into a concert film.»
Variety, By DEREK ELLEY source: http://www.variety.com/review/VE1117938817.html?categoryid=31&cs=1
«Cha is much more charismatic than the putative lead, Jo, while Shin, stunning when shimmying, doesn't have much of a role. But pic's raw energy and helming by Choi Ho (tough crimer "Bloody Tie") deliver the goods in the final act.»
eFilmCritic, by Jay Seaver - 4/5 source: http://efilmcritic.com/review.php?movie=18740&reviewer=371
«The seventies and eighties were likely a time of greater social turmoil in Korea than the sixties were in the U.S., and stories about kids who just want to rock and roll during this time period aren't destined for completely happy endings. "Go Go 70s" doesn't shy from that, but it also never loses sight of how, no matter what's going on right outside the club, the music itself can make you feel like anything is possible.»
Quiet Earth, by agentorange - 6.7/10 source: http://www.quietearth.us/articles/2009/06/22/NYAFF-Korea-does-have-Seo~~~-GO-70s
«Watching The Devils rise to prominence, enduring vicious crackdowns by the junta on long hair and miniskirts along the way, we realize we're watching a film about the fall of a military dictatorship and that this band's story represents an entire country challenging Korea's crumbling conservative conventions.»
