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)

At a glance, there doesn't seem to be much difference between movie theaters and bookshops these days. The best-seller shelf in stores selling novels is often stacked with publications that have been adapted into movies, while film posters promoting the original books are exhibited all over. Of course, films inspired by literary works have been around for years, starting in Korea with Lee Gyeong-son's "The Pioneer" (1924), which was based on writer Lee Gwang-soo's eponymous novel,...More
  • [HanCinema's Film Review] "Elegant Lies": The Life(s) Left Behind

    2014/09/20,
    In the spotlight this week: Lee Han's "Elegant Lies"... Suicide, particularly that of Korea's youth, is a troubling thread woven deep into the South's cinema; a zealous zeitgeist of modern Korean cinema that reflects a troubling truth. This sensitive (and statistically significant) subject matter has been present in a remarkable number of modern films, and earlier this year director Lee Han treated us to perhaps the most cathartic and cinematic daydream of suicide and bullying this side of the Korean wave,...More
