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)

  • Ha Jeong-woo, Ha Ji-won Voted Most Popular Movie Stars

    2012/05/21, Source,
    Ha Jeong-woo and Ha Ji-won have been voted the most popular actor and actress in Korea in an email poll by the Chosun Ilbo and the nation's largest film ticketing site MaxMovie. Some 25,784 people voted from April 18 to May 5. The two drew 10.1 and 13.7 percent of the votes respectively. But Song Kang-ho and Jeon Do-yeon were chosen as the best -- as opposed to most popular -- actor and actress, with 18 and 23.3 percent. Since the poll targeted online users of MaxMovie who had been to the cinema at least once last year, it probably reflects moviegoers' preferences more accurately than other surveys,...More
