Director Jang Jin has made a career of cleverly subverting genre movie tropes, and
Man on High Heels is no exception. He blends explosive, often violent action scenes with sly humor in this send-up of the Korean gangster movie genre. Yoon-Ji is a macho homicide detective so tough he can defeat a room full of gangsters with his bare hands and emerge without a scratch. But he has one secret: Heâ€™s a woman trapped in a manâ€™s body and is preparing to get a longed-for sex change operation when a ruthless gang comes seeking revenge.
