- Song Kang-ho once again impresses with his natural and groundreaking act. Every other actor gets to perform very well.
- The film has a perfect blend of comedy and drama. While the former does make you laugh, the latter too makes you emotional and moved at times.
- The editing is very neat as the film never bores at all.
- The cinematography is excellent in certain sequences.
- The story is very well written and the satire is praiseworthy.



THE PRESIDENT'S BARBER does justice to what its leading man Song Kang-ho is capable of. It's an important film which needs to be seen!
