Synopsis


Directed by Jeong Cho-sin, the film revolves around sexual fantasy and episodes played out by 17-year-old high school girls. The background is set in 1991, Chung said in a post-premier news conference, suggesting that girls might sport a whiff of innocence.

Our "innocent" heroine Oh Sung-eun (Kang Eun-bi) and her close friends Bang Sue-yeon (Jeon Hye-bin) and Kim Mi-Sook (Park Seul-gi) are hanging around together, dreaming about their Prince Charmings. The dreams suddenly look achievable for Sung-eun when a handsome trainee teacher named Kang Bong-gu (Lee Ji-hoon) shows up. He is a well-mannered heartthrob with a golden-boy smile. But Kang's name is embarrassingly misleading. His name should have been corrected into Kang Bang-gu ('bang-gu' in Korean means 'fart') for he has an incurable disease that synchronizes farting with sexual stimulus - a cheesy toilet humor that reminds one of comparable scenes in the "American Pie" series.

Whenever Kang sees a sexy girl passing by, he unloads a heavy dosage of pernicious gas along with high-pitched sound effect. This ludicrous condition aimed at forcing the audience to laugh seems to be working - until the technique is used too often, too indiscriminately. Unaware of the tragic illness that plagues the handsome teacher, Oh Seung-eun sets her eyes on Kang. Here, the storyline goes somewhat overboard. Oh is so audacious that she marches toward Kang's apartment to sacrifice her virginity, a plot that might have raised some heckles among diehard conservatives 15 years ago.

Given that the movie is partly concerned about portraying sexually liberal Korean high schools in a candid way, such unrealistic development might be forgiven. But what sparks controversies among critics and moviegoers is that Oh doesn't know the difference between menstruation and bleeding from the first sex. It turns out that Oh gets so drunk before knocking on the door of Kang's apartment that she just falls asleep. In other words, nothing immoral happens, and coincidently Oh begins to menstruate for the first time, and thinks it is a sign of her lost virginity.
