Su-hyeon, a private art institute teacher and Ji-young, a contract worker at a small network enterprise have been living together for six years. To his surprise, Su-hyeon finds out that Ji-young is late for her period and, in anticipation of a possible child, the couple visit each otherâ€™s parents.
While studying Film and Digital Media Design at Hongik University, Kim directed two short films, Picnic (2010) and Interview (2011). He later directed his first feature film, End of Winter (2014) while at Dankook University Graduate School of Cinematic Content.
â€œIâ€™m really scared!â€ Ji-young confesses to Su-hyeon, as they face their first steps towards adulthood. Marriage, intergenerational conflict, unplanned pregnancy – nothing is ever simple. Uncertainties and insecurities await them, but so does an open road of possibilities. All they have to do is keep on walking, as long as they are looking in the same direction.”
THE FIRST LAP screens with two short films, Jude Chun’s THE TIME AGENT and Hee-joon Yoon’s SIGH.
Tickets for this screening are $12 and are available online.
Festival passes are available online for $80.
The Toronto Korean Film Festival runs from July 11th – 15th at Innis Town Hall.
