The slug

CHOI Jinyoung
Korea 2020 99min DCP color Fiction G
Overview

Chunhui, who is left alone after her parents died, grows up in her grandmother´s house. She can´t hold hands with people because of hyperhidrosis, and she makes a living by peeling garlic. Young Chunhui appeared in front of Chunhui, who was struck by lightning one day and survived.

Review

Chunhui suffers from sorrow living in a relative´s home after the sudden loss of her parents. She can be compared to slug, the English title of this film, mollusk that crawls through the attic without a home. However, the film´s Korean title, "Good to be born (태어나길 잘했어)", shows its overall atmosphere better, and it expresses the director´s love for the main character. How amazing she is to be able to meet herself of the past and to say, "It´s okay, it´s not your fault." How happy she has a man beside her, who will give her all of himself even if he stutters. The film delivers a heartfelt message of support to Chunhui, who put the gloomy past behind her and moves slowly but forward. The slug is a blessing song for people like Chunhui all over the world. (MOON Seok)
