Movie Review:

Melons, instant cup noodles, shell food and pull-up bars. What do these seemingly trivial unrelated things have to do with this movie? Well, more than meet the eye of the scriptwriter, Park Chae Woon. You would be amazed by his creativity for conjuring with such original ideas of showing these daily items as alternative means for sexual satisfaction and even to the point of references to the feminine genital. Otherwise, be ready to be slightly put off for the light-hearted audience. Watch, laugh and forget – the advice.

Set in Year 1988, so do not be surprised by the wardrobe selections for its cast. The 4 teenage actors, with “Dong Hyun” as the main focus, have certainly delivered an excellent performance as a bunch of typical adolescent high school boys (good buddies) who are certainly and obviously very curious of sexual matters and infatuation. Kim Sun Ah as Yoo Ri (the lead actress) is the pretty rookie teacher trainee for their boys’ school. She, undeniably, caught the fantasy of her high school students. And her own affection for her former teacher now mentor, Lee Beon Su as Byung Chui. That is where the story began, combining romance and comedy elements. Teacher – student – teacher….certainly bizarre but interesting love triangle.

More credit should be given to the young actor. He brings out the soul of this role as “Dong Hyun”. In fact, the latter is the only character that is more wholesomely developed in this movie. There are different crucial choices he had to make during this growing up journey of self-discovery on deciding among moral values, true love or just simply lust.

A pity that audience won’t be able to find out his real name as the end credit list is rolled out in Korean words only.

No star-studded cast but still watchable for this 2002 comedy with an unexpected twist of its ending that brought out the final laughs. And this movie indeed serves a stark important reminder of how sex education is very vital for our perpetually curious young generation.

Movie Rating: B
