Storyline

Jang Mi-Rae (Kim Hwan-Hee) is an introverted and timid high school student. The other students in her class treated her as an outcast. At home, she lives in fear of her violent alcoholic father. She escapes into her online role-playing games and story-writing. Things appear to look up when popular female student Baek-Hab (Jung Da-Bin) approaches her to become friends. But Baek-Hab has her own selfish reasons for befriending Mi-Rae. Mi-Rae also befriends a young man whom she knows through online games. He spends his days giving away free hugs in a park in the hope to meet someone from his past. As they spend more time together, Mi-Rae slowly moves out of her shell and gains the courage to face the challenges before her. Written by nmak-1398

Good Enough
20 September 2018 | by pennyelenabooksSee all my reviews

Student A is an odd movie. First of all, the cinematography was wierd. Not when it came to the whole gaming universe, but the overall shots were filmed oddly. Also, the story got a bit odd as well at some point and they didn't explain why that happened. Nevertheless, the performances, especially from the leading lady, were really good and the story was interesting and dark. Unlike what the description provide as information, the plot presented some hard aspects of a teenager's life, like her father abusing her or being bullied at school. So, overall, 6 out of 10.
