6th Monthly Korean Movie Screening

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Korea-Canada relations and to further interest in Korean cinema, the Korean Embassy to Canada holds a monthly movie night in the Embassy’s auditorium. Invitees of the March 28th, 6th monthly movie screening, included the diplomatic community, students of the King Sejeong Institute, Ottawa-Carleton District School Board employees, and the Ottawa Hallyu Dance Team.

The movie shown yesterday evening is called “Sunny”. Directed by Kang Hyeong Cheol, “Sunny” is the story of a middle aged woman who happens to run into an old high school friend, now a cancer patient, in the hospital. She decides toย fulfill her friend’s dying wish to bring their old group of friends back together. Throughout the film, it switches from the present day middle aged women, to back to the teenaged versions of themselves and all their adventures.ย To see the trailer, clickย here.

Sunny went up and beyond our expectations. My friends and I cried and laughed and I even covered my eyes at some parts. It had the perfect balance between cute romance, comedy, and serious drama. The teenaged group of girls was also easy to relate to and reminded my friends and I a lot of ourselves.

For those who haven’t seen it, I definitely recommend “Sunny”, you will not be disappointed!
