Teen girl loves her teacher in winning Korean period piece
THE HARMONIUM IN MY MEMORY (1998): Sweet, simple, efficiently directed tale of a naive country girl, circa the late 1950's, who gets a crush on her newly-arrived teacher, an engaged, educated city boy who at first dismisses her silly efforts to impress him as so much childish infatuation, but soon comes to realize, thanks to a convenient development in one of the secondary characters, how much she really cares.
Excellent use of rural Korean backdrop and music, with a wonderfully believable performance by Jeon Do-yeon as a rural beauty coping with the bittersweet pangs of a seemingly hopeless crush.
