"Sunny, yesterday my life was filled with rain..."
Bringing in over seven million admissions at the box office, nostalgic blockbuster Sunny is Korea's feel-good hit of the year. Jumping between the roaring eighties and the present-day, the crowd-pleasing film follows the friendship of seven girls, then and now. Shim Eun Kyung (Romantic Heaven), Kang So Ra (4th Period Mystery), and Min Hyo Rin (Romance Town) lead the teenage rebellion as feisty, troublemaking schoolgirls whose high school brawling days cross over with the democracy protests of the eighties. Coming of age amid pop tunes, sunny times, and fearless friendship, what lives await yesterday's reckless dreamers when they meet again as adults? Winning Best Director at the Daejong Film Awards with just his second film, writer-director Kang Hyung Chul follows Speedy Scandal with another critically acclaimed smash hit that connects with audiences of all ages.
The picture of beauty and composure, forty-something mother and wife Na Mi (Yoo Ho Jung) seems to have achieved the ideal life. One day, she bumps into her old high school friend Chun Hwa (Jin Hee Kyung), who is hospitalized with terminal cancer but still as sassy as ever. They reminisce about their high school days together 25 years ago. Back then, Na Mi (Shim Eun Kyung) was the quirky, small-town girl who just moved to Seoul, and Chun Hwa (Kang So Ra) was the tough fighter who welcomed her into the "Sunny" crew. Along with chubby Jang Mi (Kim MinYoung), foul-mouthed Jin Hee (Park Jin Joo), bookish Geum Ok (Nam Bo Ra), Miss Korea wannabe Bok Hee (Kim Bo Mi), and arrogant beauty Su Ji (Min Hyo Rin), the girls picked fights with rival cliques and danced their teenage hearts away. They vowed to be friends forever, but adolescent breakdowns and the advent of adulthood would send them all down different roads. As Chun Hwa's health worsens, Na Mi sets out to round up the Sunny crew for one more dance.
