Eighteen
Filmfest 2010

Tae-hoon and Mi-jung are both eighteen and have been going out for 100 days. During winter break they decide to take a trip to the beach to celebrate their anniversary. When they are back home after a few days, they are confronted with a harsh situation – Mi-jung’s parents won't allow them to see each other until they become college students. Tae-hoon struggles to keep their love alive, but she avoids him as her parents wish. Winter turns to spring, and Tae-hoon and Mi-jung both turn nineteen... Production Notes "There was a time when the world was full of restrictions but you couldn’t do much about it. This film is dedicated to my high school years: a time when I madly loved someone, but things just didn’t go my way. I have finally come to terms with my past. Rest in peace, my teenage years." JANG Kun-jae "Illicit teen romance has rarely been so authentically captured as in this feature debut." HKIFF, 2010
