Shoot Me in the Heart :- Watch Shoot Me in the Heart on YoutubeonFire, Soo-myeong (played by Yeo Jin-goo) is a sad, disturbed young man who’s being sent to a mental institution for his own protection. Seung-min (played by Lee Min-ki)…well, it’s some time into “Shoot Me in the Heart” before it’s made completely clear whether Seung-min is actually crazy. Seung-min claims to be the victim of some sort of elaborate conspiracy. A single phone call is all Seung-min needs to produce someone who can vouch for his sanity. Of course, that’s just what a crazy person would say, and we can’t listen to crazy people. It’s not like a sane person would react violently if they were forcibly restrained in a mental institution. On the superficial level, “Shoot Me in the Heart” is a heartwarming comedy about brotherly friendship in adverse circumstances. And to be clear, it acquits itself quite well in these circumstances. Yeo Jin-goo and Lee Min-ki have excellent rapport in spite of their differences. Seung-min effectively manages to get Soo-myeong to open up and accept that the emotions and feelings he has aren’t a danger. While Soo-myeong has had a tragic time of life, he is not a broken human being. …You can perhaps see how, in the context of a mental institution, the sociological commentary is hard to ignore. Frequently we get the sense that it’s not the inmates who are crazy, but the world. The underlying essential message of “Shoot Me in the Heart” is that friendship, emotional connection, and love are what people need to function.
