Dispatch; I Don’t Fire Myself, which won the Best Acting Prize at the 21st Jeonju International Film Festival, confirmed its release in January 2021 as an Artbuster that opens the New Year.
The movie is about the journey of Jung Eun, who was sent to a subcontract office, as she tries to go back to the original office after a year. Jung Eun, who was considered an excellent employee at work, suddenly faces a resignation under instruction. Having been offered to instate her if she works at a subcontract office for a year, Jung Eun accepts the offer but soon faces an entirely different kind of challenge.
The new still photos show Jung Eun staring somewhere in a blue work suit, and the sight of her hanging on the line upside down suggests that there will be an unexpected challenge on Jung Eun’s journey to find her place.
Yoo Da In, who showed outstanding acting in films Re-encounter and The Snob and the drama Into the Ring, plays Jung Eun that proudly stands up to unfair dismissal, dispatch and gender discrimination, and chants a cheerful cheer for the world that takes away the place of sincere people. Oh Jung Se, who worked on three hit dramas (Hot Stove League, When the Camellia Blooms, It’s Okay to Not Be Okay) this year alone, plays Jung Eun’s only supporter Mak Nae, and will become a warm hug for all those who are struggling in this cold world.
Dispatch; I Don’t Fire Myself will look back on what has changed since the death of Jeon Tae Il, a workers’ rights activist who committed suicide by burning himself to death at the age of 22 in protest at the poor working conditions of South Korean factories, and become a movie that delivers the energy to “protect my work and tomorrow” from the beginning of next year.
