I now present… another review! Yippee…!
This one is called Hot Young Bloods and it’s a Korean romantic comedy (the best genre!) film set in the 1980s. I found it special because it’s not just your typical high school film; well it kinda is, but there’s history involved too. It revolves around delinquency and love, and touching other people’s girlfriends. A lotta testosterone in these guys, I’m telling you.
The cast includes:
Lee Jong Suk (my favourite!) – previously in Pinocchio, Doctor Stranger, I Can Hear Your Voice
Park Bo Young – previously in Werewolf Boy, Oh My Ghostess
Kim Young Kwang – previously in Pinocchio, D-Day
Lee Se Young – previously in Adolescence Medley, Horror Stories 2
I haven’t included many spoilers, so it’s a little bit brief.
The main plot: Yeongsook is a feared leader of a female gang, and supposed girlfriend of Kwangsik, who is the feared leader of the male gang at a rival school. Although Yeongsook acts very tough, she actually has a crush on the school playboy, Joonggil, but he’s pursuing a transfer student who isn’t actually who she appears to be. Joonggil is afraid of Kwangsik, so doesn’t pursue Yeongsook, but still often gets beaten up by him.
The film teaches us about relationships and feelings; but mainly it’s just fun to watch. I couldn’t stop watching and really hoped that it was a drama because I wanted more! The ending is sort of unexplained and there’s a random character that brings humour but also a bit of confusion (the runner); however, it’s certainly worth watching if you’re fans of the actors/actresses or love romantic comedies!
I’d rate this 8.5/10 🙂
But yeah, I’ve got exams tomorrow so I’m gonna go Enjoy!
