High school girl Ryeo Won is not happy about having Baek Young who has short hair, wears uniform pants, and acts all tough as her seatmate. She is unsure if Baek Young is a lesbian or a transgender, but she doesn’t understand why “she acts like a boy.” Whether Baek Young knows how Ryeo Won feels or not, she starts opening up to her. This moves Ryeo Won’s heart. One day, RyeoWon’s best friend Hye Ri confesses that she has a crush on Baek Young. “Do you like her as a girl? Or because she is like a boy?” Filled with prejudice, Ryeo Won throws a question to Hye Ri and interprets her feeling the way she wants. However, how can we simply explain these strong emotions that Ryeo Won, Baek Young, and Hye Ri are each experiencing? ”Casually, for the Worse” presents a different kind of queer film that depicts queerness which is not black and white like butch/femme, homosexual/heterosexual, and transgender/cisgender. In addition, the film doesn’t define Baek Young’s identity, Hye Ri’s sexual orientation, or Ryeo Won’s opinion. In fact, putting a label on it may not really matter.
