Storyline

Set in 1994 in Seoul, a touching coming-of-age drama centered around the quiet, unexceptional eighth-grader Eun-Hee (Ji-hu Park). Struggling to make passing grades and subject to non-stop screaming at home, she spends her time finding meaning in the love and friendships of her peers, in shoplifting, and in karaoke bars. It's in her cram school professor Yong-Ji (Sae-byeok Kim), however, that Eun-Hee finds the answers that she seeks, as the two form an unlikely friendship. Written by brahamdali

Korean school girl and ordinary family
29 September 2019 | by lee211See all my reviews

Accurately represented conflicts between a Korean school girl and ordinary family in Gangnam district in 1994.

Korean family living in the same format of house as others. The purpose of children's life is captivated in school and cram school to be enrolled in the top university. Not much conversation between parents and children apart from school record. Therefore life in children is no fun at all.

Narrated well about how the schoolgirl tried to find the purpose of life and small fun things from the boring but unfair life.
