Punch (완득이)

Directed by Lee Han (이한)

Screenplay by

Drama

107min | Release date in South Korea :

Synopsis
Based on a novel, this is a movie about a poor and rebellious Wandeugi, meeting an oddball teacher and growing up.
"Punch" is an acclaimed coming-of-age film based on the enormously popular novel by Kim Ryeo-ryeong and play produced by Kim Dong-soo. It’s a timely text presenting the possibilities of the One Source Multi Use (OSMU) products. 18 year old Wanduk and his family’s tale is portrayed with a jaunty, dramatic rhythm. Wandeuk’s father is afflicted with kyphosis—commonly known as being hunchback. His live-in uncle isn’t completely normal either. What’s more, his mother, who makes an appearance in his life out of the blue, is Filipino. All of them, however, are precious to Wandeuk. And so is his homeroom teacher, Dong-joo, who is every bit the troublemaker Wandeuk is. They are constantly bickering and fighting as though they are enemies, but become more inseparable than family. "Punch" begins firmly rooted in the coming-of-age genre, but turns into a family drama and a social drama dealing with such crucial issues as the generation gap, education, disability, and multi-culturalism. It does all this and imparts some valuable lessons while providing entertainment and inspiration. (JEON Chanil)

    "Captain America" strikes again… After weeks of cycling the crown the Korean box office has finally awarded a second term at the top.

The film, which recently broke the April ticket tally in the States, now moves onto 2.6M admissions in Korea and has grossed over $303M worldwide. Its nearest rival came in the form of the French-American thriller "3 Days to Kill", directed by Joseph McGinty Nichol (aka "McG") with the story itself by Luc Besson, which managed second place with only 117,175 admissions to its name,...More

    "300" falls to "Elegant Lies"… "300: Rise of an Empire" fell from grace this past weekend as "Elegant Lies" opened strong with 447,454 admissions (26.5%). Lee Han's last film, "Punch", attracted over 5 million filmgoers back in 2011, and now his latest has made the most of its 555 allocated screens to claim the top spot in week one. Last week the fantasy war epic "300: Rise of an Empire" took gold with over 6K admissions, however after that initial excitement the adaptation fell one place with just 303,280 (20.4%) to its name. Murro's hyper-stylised retelling of the Battle of Salamis now sits on an admissions stack 1.3 million high after two weeks in the chart,...More
