Go To

Aachi and Ssipak is a 2006 animated South Korean film, directed by Jo Beom-jin and animated by Studio Flying.

In the future, poop has become the main energy source. All citizens are implanted with anal identity chips at birth; and when they defecate in public stalls, they receive an addictive, hallucinogenic popsicle called a juicybar as a reward. If too many are eaten, juicybars can cause people to transform into small, blue, and stupid mutants. These mutants have been organized by a Hitleresque charismatic leader named The Diaper King, into a revolutionary cell called The Diaper Gang and they are constantly hounded by police forces, aided by an unstoppable government cyborg. Everyone wants to control the juicybar supply. The police, the mob, and the Diaper Gang. Jimmy the Freak, a drug-addled porn director, stumbles onto a means of tricking the system into over-dispensing juicybars and he hands this information to the leader of the Diapers. They then recruit porn star/wannabe-actress Beauty (a woman imbued with the power to defecate several times a day) to be the vessel for a blessed anal chip and soon accidentally lose her to Aachi and Ssipak, small time hoodlums who make a living stealing juicybars from other people. This results in the police, the mob, and the Diaper Gang to chase after them.


With over the top Gorn and Toilet Humor, it's definitely not for kids.

An English Gag Dub was made by the makers of Dick Figures. It will be divided in 18 chapters, with one chapter released weekly on Mondo Media's YouTube channel. The full movie can be bought on iTunes.

Aachi and Ssipak has examples of:

  • Action Survivor: Beauty is definitely one but even the two main characters tend to try to escape more than they actually fight (see Dirty Coward). Most of the death and bloodshed is between the antagonists.
  • Adorable Evil Minions: The Diaper Gang are short, blue, have squeaky voices, and even have funny little motorcycle/robot-legs to ride in. One would almost feel sorry for them as they are killed violently but it's just too Bloody Hilarious. That, and they are psychotic killers.
  • Back from the Dead: Jimmy the Freak and Geko. Well, sort of.
  • Advertisement:
  • Badass Preacher: Diaper King think's he's a messiah and is one of the few people who can go toe to toe with Geko. And actually succeeds in killing him, twice
  • Bad Boss: Diaper King and chief of police.
  • Batman Cold Open: The film starts with the Diaper Gang getting killed by Geko. The title characters show up a few seconds later and have little to do with the previous scene aside from running over a half-dead mutant.
  • Big Brother Is Watching: The government has the ability to monitor people's defecations. This allows them to track down Beauty.
  • Bilingual Bonus: Aachi and Ssipak have names that sound a lot like Korean swear words. The equivalent would be an English language movie named "Dammat and Fook".
  • Black Blood: Geko due to being a cyborg-zombie.
  • Better to Die than Be Killed: Faced with imminent death at the hands of two hideously modified blue mutants, the Chief resolves to kill herself with her own pistol. Completely subverted when one of the mutants slices her arm off before she can pull the trigger.
  • Butt-Monkey: Jimmy the Freak can't seem to get a break, even after death.
  • Cool Bike: Almost everyone has one. It's an After the End movie. What did you expect?
  • Cool Shades: Geko and Aachi.
  • Crapsack World: With the world reduced to using crap as a fuel source. It's as bad as it sounds.
  • Damsel in Distress: Beauty.
  • Determinator: Geko the cyborg cop.
  • Dog Food Diet: It's implied that the blue mutants feed Beauty dog food so she can defecate and make more Juicybars.
  • Dirty Coward: After Geko knocks Ssipak unconscious, Aachi threatens him and then promptly runs and hides behind his motorcycle.
  • Disturbed Doves: Parodied.
  • Dub Name Change: The English dub changes Beauty's name to Beautiful.
  • Enfant Terrible: The chief. Though she could just be a psychotic woman with stunted growth. Considering Korean society's obsession with cuteness and youth, she is likely supposed to be a satire of that aspect of the culture.
  • Everyone Calls Him "Barkeep": Only Aachi, Ssipak and Geko are named. Everyone else goes by their title (even Beauty).
  • Evil vs. Evil: The Diaper Gang vs. The Government vs. The Mafia
  • Fiery Redhead: Aachi.
