Description: Veteran South Korean director Park Chul-soo (301/302) wrote and directed the erotic drama Green Chair. Seoh Jung (The Isle) stars as Kim Moon-hee, an older woman who has just been released from police custody for deflowering an underage young man, Hyun (newcomer Shim Ji-ho). (In South Korea, the age of sexual consent is 20, and Hyun is only 19.) Upon her release, Moon-hee is surprised when Hyun shows up and spirits her away from eager reporters. Dodging a prying reporter and staying out of sight, Moon-hee and Hyun go to a motel, where they continue their torrid affair. Moon-hee thinks Hyun is only interested in sex, so she breaks up with him, and goes to stay with her friend, Jean (Oh Yun-hong). She's heartbroken that Hyun didn't try to get her to stay, but she soon learns that he has followed her. The couple stays with Jean, who seems to share Moon-hee's attraction to the handsome young man. Moon-hee fulfills her community service (part of her sentence) by caring for senior citizens in a rest home. The two struggle through their challenging relationship, dealing with Hyun's immaturity and Moon-hee's insecurity. With Hyun's 20th birthday approaching, they plan a big dinner party, inviting everyone who's had a recent impact on their lives. Green Chair was shown at the 2005 edition of the New York Asian Film Festival, presented by Subway Cinema.~ Josh Ralske, All Movie Guide
