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)

  • [HanCinema Korea's Diary] Where did it all start for you?

    2012/03/10,
    If you had asked me five years ago about Korean cinema I would not have been able to name a single film, let alone any actors,  directors, or anything close to the mark. Korean cinema in all its richness and fluidity was unknown to me and its riveting array of melodramas, thrillers, and comedies were well clear of my cinematic radar. Then, in 2007, I had my first taste of it when I came to Seoul on a brief two-week trip. In a dark and crowded apartment, I took up the chance to watch an unknown Korean horror titled "Red Eye", and that marked my first step towards becoming a true Korean cinephile,...More
