Jong-du, who has three previous convictions, pays a visit to the family of the victim in the hit-and run accident for which he served time and meets Gong-ju, the daughter, who has cerebral palsy. Jong-du is fascinated by her at first sight and visits her again when he knows she is alone. Trying to reassure and pacify the terrified young woman, he loses control and tries to rape her, stopping only when she faints. But he has left his workshop phone number in her room, and Gong-ju knows where to find him. To Jong-du's amazement, she calls him and invites him to visit her again. Over a series of clandestine meetings, the handicapped young woman and the feckless young man come to fall in love with each other. However their love is not one that is understood by anyone else.

    • [HanCinema's Hall of Fame Review] "Castaway on the Moon": Fantastical!

      In the spotlight this week: Lee Hae-joon's "Castaway on the Moon"... Lee's sophomore film gets straight to point and jumps off. Kim Seung-geun (Jeong Jae-yeong) owes $210,308 to "Happy Cash Private Loans", and he's about to commit suicide by jumping into the Han. He hangs up the phone and plunges into the murky river without further ado; a leap of faith that was not, however, enough to break his pitiful contract with life. He soon wakes up washed up on a small, uninhabited, island smack in the middle of Seoul's Han. Soaked and shell-shocked, Kim tries to get off the island to head towards Korea's famous, and gold-cast, '63' building on Yeouido: Seoul's steepest structure that would surely do a better job than that backstabbing bridge,...More

    • [HanCinema's Box Office Review] 2014.01.17 ~ 2014.01.19

      "Frozen" enjoys a solid start while "The Attorney" celebrates 10M tickets…  After four consecutive weeks at the top of the pile, Yang Woo-seok's "The Attorney" has finally given way to Walt Disney Picture's "Frozen" (1,036,102 admissions). The Oscar nominated animation has already grossed $759M worldwide and arrived on Korean shores to the delight of more than a million filmgoers. "Frozen" captured 41.4% of the market share to dislodge Yang's true-life drama and deny it a fifth straight week as Korea's number one. However that didn't overshadow the fact that this past week saw "The Attorney" breach 10 million admissions (10,162,511 - $69.5M), and it now joins an elite, and ever-growing, list of Korean films who have achieved such an incredible feat,...More
