2010. South Korea. Written and directed by Jang Kun-Jae. With Seo Jun-yeong, Lee Min-ji. The Korean title of Jang’s debut film translates as “whirlwind,” which aptly describes the parentally opposed romance between a pair of eighteen-year-olds who can hardly wait until they reach nineteen—legal adulthood in Korea. In Korean; English subtitles. 95 min.
Screening as part of Yeonghwa: Korean Film Today
