(Korean with English subtitles) This hit inspirational movie follows an autistic young man, who finds solace only in running. His mother is the caring force that never gives up on him.

The film pokes fun at the classic film 'Rain Man' in the scene where the coach tries to get Cho-won to solve maths equations. Cho-won can't solve any difficult equations in his head, and it's literally raining in the foreground. See more »
Korea is definitely the most interesting movie producer for the time being (and will probably expand even more in the future!), they keep pumping out masterpiece after masterpiece in all different genres recently (taegukgi, my sassy girl, old boy, memories of murder someone?). And this time a hearth warming story about a autistic boy called Cho-won who loves running more than anything. I wont in detail go through the story, you simply have to experience it yourself. But i can say as much as this movie contains everything which makes a movie in this genre good. You will laugh, you will cry, you will get that warm feeling inside your spine.
RUN and watch this! You wont regret it. Go! Go! GO Korea!
