Sorry, NG guys/girls I had to remove this movie for a while.
I replaced movie file with new one.
I thank all of you who have enjoyed [Hot Fish- Same but different...] until now.
Hi, I'm amalloc of SamBakZa.
This one is not funny, and may be hard to understand to who don't know about Korea.
But I think the message is very simple. I hope you'll be able to enjoy this.
The title is "Hot Fish - Same but different..."

Another great flash

I first saw this on your website after I discovered your "There She Is!!." I've been trying to translate the Korean flash until today. Great work!

Hope for the Future

SamBakZa, I'm sorry to hear that legal implications prevent you from sharing this beautiful work of art with the world. Truly it is inspirational, and it strikes me as one of the best works of animation I've ever seen, both asthetically and poetically.
Especially poetically. If nobody else, your message to the world has reached and touched my heart.

I wish there was some way I could help you to spread this message to others, to share the spirit of diversity, comraderie, and appreciation across the world. Perhaps, I shall find a way...but for now, I hope it suffices to say that, your words have not gone unheard, or fallen on deaf ears.

Never give up the hope that you may change the world, for you can never fail to leave an impact on someone's life.

absolutely brilliant. You are in my opinion the best flash artist I've ever seen. So much emotion involved in each one of them.

Different, but Awesome!

Graphics: The characters and the backgrounds were drawn in the familiar way that was used in the other great Flash by SamBakZa - the hilarious “There She Is!”. So there’s no question that this was a Flash that was just as good, considering this Flash artist’s skill. It could’ve used some color on its part, but that would’ve been icing on this cake. In addition, this was very fluid animation, very smooth and, in general, a great Flash in terms of technique.

Style: The plot was a bit strange, I must agree with everybody else about that. With the transition of scenes between the humans and the animals, I really didn’t know what to think. Even with the transition between scenes caused a bit of confusion on my part, I still got a sense of what you were trying to convey in your flash. And regardless of this hindrance, I really liked the general message that this Flash gives. Although the whole Flash was mainly in Korean, the quotes still projected a message that is so true, so heartfelt…it gives one a warm feeling inside after watching this. Never have I seen a Flash that made me feel this way…

My two cents about this Flash's plot: Like everybody else, many students wish to do well on the SATs. A boy, seeing that a girl hasn't done as well as she thought on the SATs, comforts her by giving her a bag of fish. Using the fish as an example, he says that life has many things that make us different, that make us keep on going, no matter what has gotten us down. As to amplify these point, there's this alternate universe (courtesy of SamBakZa) that shows bunnies and cats in similar situations.

Sound: Let me get one thing straight - even after all the praise that I have given this Flash, I am not a Korean. However, the tone of this music was so touching, that, even without understanding the words to the song, I could understand the feelings being expressed with the song. This was a truly magnificent song; I swear, this song was practically MADE for this Flash. Thanks to you, SamBakZa, Jeo Qu-Cheon is now a respected Korean singer in my book.
