  • Throughout 1987: When the Day Comes we mostly see Investigator Park through the eyes of his victims- as a crazed psychopath who cannot be stopped and cannot be negotiated with...a fitting metaphor for the South Korean dictatorship as a whole.

  • 1987 shys away from the bullet points that historians have recorded in favor of the unremembered individuals whose actions contributed to free elections in South Korea.
