About This DVD
The Wonder Years may be director Kim Hee Jung's first feature-length film, but her talent is already crystal clear. A Polish National Film School graduate, Kim became the first Korean director to be selected for the prestigious Cinefondation Cannes Residence program in 2005, a mentorship program for up-and-coming filmmakers. The Wonder Years is a tender film about adolescence in all its dreams and humdrums, insecurities and obstinacies - not so much coming-of-age, but being-of-age. The film truly excels in the little things, keenly capturing the awkward sentiments of youth and the familiar details of small city daily life, from teen gossip and market bustle to sleepovers and utility bills. Both nostalgic and contemporary, younger viewers will identify all too well with the thoughts and experiences of the protagonist, while adults may find more than a few memories awakened by the wincingly, yet endearingly realistic teenage characters and dilemmas. Young actress Lee Se Young (Lovely Rivals) carries her role perfectly, every step the sullen teenager, while acclaimed actress Chu Sang Mi ( Turning Gate) and singer Kim Yoon Ah of Jaurim co-star as her mothers.
Angsty 13-year-old Su Ah (Lee Se Young) is entering junior high, and she's going through a quiet early life crisis. She feels misplaced and distant from her friends, going through the motions of a normal mundane life. Her harried single mother (Chu Sang Mi), meanwhile, is desperately trying to make ends meet running a small restaurant, and she doesn't have time to deal with Su Ah's sullenness. Feeling lost, Su Ah takes off for Seoul to see the concert of pop star Yun Seol Yeong (Kim Yoon Ah), whom she has long imagined to be her real mother.
