What is most applicable to Korean movies is that their movies occupy the heart. To me, now South Korean movies are at the top of my list of interests and favorites. The movie is a mass media to build public opinion against social inequalities and wrongs. Therefore, as the film market is a business field in the global market, the film can present its industry as a spokesperson for society. In todays movie review – The Hope 2013 (Korean title So-won) movie got the best of me and the movie was made based on the most discussed Na-Young case.
South Korea’s 2008 “Na-Young Case” is one of the few discussed in the world. Where a 57-year-old drunk man was charged with physical abuse of an 8-year-old girl Na-Young. The defendant subsequently faces only 12 years in prison. On top of this fact, the Korean movie “Hope”, released in 2013 by Lee Joon-ik, also known as “Wish” (So-won), based on Na-Young case. The film wins the 34th Blue Dragon Award.
