It's Thursday and I know that many of you are just waiting for the weekend to arrive so you can sleep in, get some rest, and also to check out the latest art and culture events.
So here we are with our arts and culture reporter Michelle Kim to give us the latest updates.
Hello, Michelle.

[Reporter : ] Hello, Conn-young.

So what do you have for us today[Reporter : ] Well you know, it's springtime and the weather is amazing, flowers are blooming, and love is in the air.
Appropriately enough, the theaters are filling up with the romantic movies these days and one of them is about first love.
Here is one that may make you reminisce about your first love.
Take a look.

We turn to the latest movie releases. The Korean movie "Architecture 101" snagged the top spot on the local box office chart over its opening weekend.
"Architecture 101" is the story of wide-eyed 20 year old university student Seung-min, who meets music-major Seo-yeon in his introductory architecture class.
It is love at first sight for Seung-min.
Seung-min is timid and has a difficult time expressing his feelings for Seo-yeon.
And after a misunderstanding, the two are estranged for the rest of their time at college.
The two meet 15 years later. Seung-min has become an architect and Seo-yeon asks him to re-build her old house.
The movie depicts the duality of love as well as architecture and the faint recollections of one's first love.

[Interview : Lee Je-hoon, Actor] "To like someone, it is a significant memory in one's life but it can also become a foundation for loving someone once again."

The movie was released amid great anticipation over its star-studded cast with Lee Je-hoon and Kpop idol Bae Suzy in the roles of the young protagonists, and Eom Tae-woong and Han Ga-in playing their more seasoned counterparts.

Another movie wetting the lips of movie fans is the "Hunger Games," a blockbuster franchise that broke box office records before it even opened.
Set in a future where the Capitol selects a boy and a girl from each of twelve districts to battle for survival on live television.
The movie is based on Suzanne Collins' 2008 novel by the same title, and 11 million copies of the book are now in print.
"Hunger Games" is set to hit theaters in Korea next month.
