BY HAN YUN-SUN / SOUTH KOREA
KOREAN / 2013 / 104 MINS

Dong-do (Lee Jae-eung), a teenage boy with a penchant for watching violent films, finds himself assimilating into a rebellious high school gang. However, when one of their members starts to view him as a romantic rival for the affections of Yeon Hee (Seo Joo-ah), he is overwhelmed.

In this charming character study of disaffected youth, director Han Yun-sun sheds light on the complexities of growing up and belonging. The film shifts gear as emotions spiral, revealing the sometimes deadly serious alliances and betrayals that exist in teenage subcultures. Han’s gritty adolescent film is universally relatable and is a promising debut for the South Korean director.
