Crush and Blush is a comedic coming-of-age movie for adults, following a Russian language teacher Mi-sook who suffers from uncontrollable hot flushes.  Assigned to teach English, Mi-sook becomes colleagues with her first love from high school, Jong-cheol, who is having an affair with a young, attractive female colleague. Jong-cheol’s daughter Jong-hee then teams up with Mi-sook, fearing her parents’ divorce.  No better than her student when it comes to self-esteem, Mi-sook forges an interesting relationship with Jong-hee as the director dwells on what it means to be the object of another’s affection.

Forever the Moment 우리 생애 최고의 순간


Forever the Moment – a popular box-office hit, the film dramatizes a real event: the Korean women’s hand-ball team’s winning the silver medal at the 2004 Athens Olympics. The two main characters are women who struggle to keep up with their team mates; as their physical abilities have decreased, due to their age. They must also deal with personal issues that they face as middle-aged women – such as family finances, child-care, and social discrimination against divorced women, as well as keeping their head in the game, bringing the audience to empathize and experience their joy and frustration in the last minutes as if they are our own!

    I would love to see forever the moment. I’ve never seen a movie about handball. But I love to watch movies about teams coming together. And finding a way to achieve their goal in and off the court.
