SYNOPSIS

20-year-old Jung-hee doesn't go to college and works parttime. She goes to meet Min-young, her old high school roommate, for the first time in a while and wants to hang out with her as they did before. However, Min-young, a college student, is busy sending correction emails regarding her credits and feels uncomfortable by Jung-hee's visit.​ 

 

PROGRAM NOTE

The film starts with scattering. For those who are to be college-bound, the “Three-line Poetry Club” activity is extravagant. When Min-young seriously reads an award-winning three-line poem from their last competition Jung-hee and Susanna cannot make fun of her and are all ears. They scatter again. Min-young goes to university in another city, Susanna to a prestigious university in the U.S., and Jung-hee remains in the same place. Jung-hee doesn’t know what to do for a living. She is at a loss but not impatient. While picking up balls in tennis courts and drawing on print flyers, she thinks about her next step at her own pace.

 

Once together, how do we scatter and connect again? Is it possible to reunite? Kim Min-young of the Report Card seems to be relaxed and trivial at first glance, but it gives sharp insight into relationships. When practical Min-young feels pathetic for Jung-hee, the two confront each other. However, the film abundantly shows the characters’ intentions behind the confrontation. The way to the ending is also challenging. Reconciliation in this film seems simple, but it is like a strong hug between one world and another, not just a handshake or putting arms around. It might be the way of the new generation. Jung-hee’s courage is worth remembering. [KIM Hyunmin] ​
