When Untold Scandal director Lee Jae Yong announced he and other directors would adapt the monstrously popular online comic Multi Cell Girl into not only a film (Dasepo Naughty Girls), but also a series for cable TV and another for the new DMB (Digital Mobile Broadcasting) system, people were quite surprised. The comic is not only popular for intelligently capturing teenagers' views on sex, school, and relationships, but also because it is incredibly frank and even a little vulgar about subjects that are often considered taboo by Korean network standards.
Dasepo Girl Series features a brother with only one eye and his transgender sister, plus a poor girl literally wearing poverty on her back and her escapades into the world of sex with adults - and those are just a few of the many unique characters populating Mosseulmo (Useless) High. The series was first screened at the Bucheon Film Festival in July 2006, and later the series of 15-minute episodes were broadcast on cable channel Superaction. Produced by Kim Ui Seok of Sword in the Moon, the series stars Kim Eun Joo of What's Up, Fox?, Kwak Ji Min of Samaritan Girl, Yim Sung Un of Yeon Gaesomun, and a host of new faces.
