Dir. Lee Han. 2011, 107 min. With Yoo Ah-in, Kim Yun-seok. A neglected and hot-tempered 17-year-old and his abrasive schoolteacher form the unlikely pair that anchors this charming ensemble drama, which unfolds in the busy streets of Seoul. A commercial hit in Korea, Lee’s fourth film is layered in thematic details that lift it beyond the narrative conventions of the coming-of-age genre—a funny, reserved, and genuinely heartfelt picture.
