Here’s a short film that might offer a fresh breath of wind to cool down the sweltering summer heat. [Spring in Summer] is a coming-of-age romantic film that depicts how So-hee, who is depressed about her mother’s remarriage, runs into David, an adoptee born in Korea who returns to his motherland to find his biological mother. The movie illustrates the progress of how the two characters get closer to one another. This film progresses its plot by applying the idea of “mother’s decision” into each character’s situation and provides a delicate observation of how the two characters start to feel for each other and understand their respective circumstances. Director Hwang Da-seul, who starred in the film herself, says she wishes to offer a ‘moment of spring’ as a gift to viewers. Hwang tells us the progress of how she designed the characters and messages she hoped to deliver through this film.
