Our Twisted Hero (Hangul우리들의 일그러진 영웅; RRUrideul-ui ilgeuleojin yeongung) is a 1992 South Korean film directed by Park Jong-won. It was chosen as Best Film at the Chunsa Film Art Awards.[2][3] It is based on the book Our Twisted Hero.


A man traveling to the funeral of his fifth-grade teacher recalls his life at the time. As a city boy transferred to a country school, he encountered an unexpectedly old-fashioned hierarchical bullying system. When he tried to create a rebellion against the system, both those oppressed by it and the teachers and parents opposed him. When change finally came to the school, it was in an equally harsh form.[4]
