other great truth story from Korea...
3 May 2013 | by See all my reviews

When I see a lot of positive review and award for this movie I decided to watch this movie. Yeah, after a long time I don't see any good movie from Korea since All About My Wife,Suspect X and Werewolf Boy I finally got what I want! To watch the movie that can give us satisfaction and anything, give us something to think and what to practices in our life.

This movie is about our teen's problem nowadays, such as petty crime, pregnancy and responsibility to themselves and their family. I actually fell in love to Jung Hyun character, she is so sweet and adorable. She played her character as a young mother very well and that's what make this movie good. I'm really really love this movie because its story is so moving and heartwarming. It told our social problem in metaphor's way thats make it so great. Highly recommended for those who want alternative genre from Korea instead of their action thriller movie. Again highly recommended!
