Mongjunggi, or Wet Dreams, opens with four boys discussing masturbation. Swimming in a pool surrounded by bikini-clad women the boys discuss how many times they came the night before and who were the objects of their fantasies. Now, at first this film seems like the Korean cousin of American Pie, but the boys in this film are not high school graduates about the enter college nor are they high school kids, they are in fact junior high school students. Junior High that wonderful time in a boy's life when he first discovers girls and decides to stick his weenie into pieces of fruit and bowls up cup ramen. A wonderful time in which boys pretend to stumble to "accidentally" grope the behinds of shapely women and to intentionally slip and look up the dresses of young teacher trainees. At least this is the world of Dong-hyun and his friends.
In 1988, Dong Hyun and his friends are trapped in a hormonal hell that is exacerbated by the fact that they attend a school for boys. They spend their days fantasizing about girls and reading pornographic literature. They attempt to hit on girls at the skating rink and ask them if they want to "root", but the experience left them having to go home in nothing but their tighty whities. Their little world of puberty-induced frustration is given a jolt with the arrival of a pretty, young teacher trainee Kim Yoo-ri, Kim Seon-a, who is teamed up with their scruffy math teacher who was once her math teacher and for whom she harbors a major crush. After her arrival, the boys, especially Dong-hyun, try to win the affections of their young teacher, but they are definitely not beyond trying to peep up her skirt or coping a feel when she is drunk.
Although Wet Dreams has a few quite humorous scenes, such as the one with the white out, it is basically another dull film in a dull genre of films. However, it is good for a couple of laughs if nothing else, and I definitely mean nothing else. In 2005 a sequel to this film was released, Wet Dreams 2, in which four girls are the main protagonists. Maybe it will be better, but can one really have that much hope for a film titles Wet dreams?
