A Boy and Sungreen
Bo-hee (Ahn Ji-ho) is a sensitive high schooler raised by his mother. When he accidentally learns that his supposedly dead father may not be dead after all, Bo-hee goes off on a search with his BFF Nok-Yang (Kim Ju-a), nicknamed Sungreen, in tow. While trying to fill the void left by a lack of father gure in his life, Bo-hee unwittingly forms a makeshift family when he bonds with his half-sister’s slacker boyfriend (Seo Hyun-woo).
This charming coming-of-age dramedy by Ahn Ju-young marks the extraordinary talent of a new director with inimitable deadpan humour and skill at drawing loveable outlier characters. Ahn peppers the unconventional storyline with all kinds of little twists, bittersweet emotional rides and stylistic quirks. Capturing the protagonists‘ delicate equilibrium between sibling-like affection and romantic love, the lm depicts the best teenage friendship since Sunny.
