Son Rae Kim put on a great performance for a child actress
I read some of the reviews for this film and I agree, this is a pretty depressing and yet engaging movie but the audience will be left wanting more when the credits starts rolling and not because the movie is mind blowing or anything. And Son Rae Kim was just perfect for this role, she is a very good actress for her age and is looking forward for her to make it in the movie business. The other children in the movie did a fine job as well. But I am just curious why a big time actor such as Kyung-gu Sol played a very small part as Jinhee's father, when anyone else could have done the role since it doesn't even show his face. This is the first movie I saw about children in the Korean orphanage, and was well worth the time. It was sad watching the children in the movie struggling and doing there best to get adopted and to know the problem of many children ending up in the orphanages still goes on today.
