A rebellious high school loner meets his match in an even more rebellious and eccentric teacher in the critically acclaimed blockbuster Punch
from Lover's Concerto
director Lee Han. Award-winning actor Kim Yoon Seok (Yellow Sea
) and Yoo Ah In (Sungkyunkwan Scandal
) star in this oddball, down-to-earth drama about coming of age and coming to terms with life's curious turns. Based on a novel by Kim Ryeo Ryeong, Punch
became a big hit at the Korean box office, dealing warmly and realistically with family, adolescent, and social issues, while maintaining a tenacious sense of cheeky humor. Not everything and everyone fit in or make sense in the world of Punch
, and that's exactly what struck a chord with audiences.
Pessimistic loner Wan Deuk (Yoo Ah In) doesn't care much about school, and is quick to throw a fist if anyone bullies his father (Park Soo Young). He has the misfortune of living right next door to his straight-talking homeroom teacher Dong Joo (Kim Yoon Seok), who is unconventional, unkempt, and constantly singles him out. It's a headache for Wan Deuk every time Dong Joo yells his name - and he sure does it often. Dong Joo simply won't let Wan Deuk be. Instead, he keeps pushing him, convincing Wan Deuk to train in boxing and to meet his estranged Filipina mother (Filipina-Korean actress Jasmine Lee, who was elected into South Korea's National Assembly in 2012).
