- Runtime: 103 min.
A work based on the Japanese manga of the same name. In Japan, ‘Little Forest: Summer and Autumn’ and ‘Little Forest: Winter and Spring’ were first made into movies and received a lot of love.
The Korean version of ‘Little Forest’ has been adapted to fit the Korean sentiment while preserving the original’s sensibility and key points. Hye-Won (Kim Tae-Ri) leads a country life, is self-sufficient, and sets up a seasonal table. However, instead of the cat, Hye-won’s character Oh-gu is with her. A typical Korean country house. This white ball is also a device for security in a country house where a young woman lives alone. Director Lim Soon-rye explained, “I set it up so that the audience can see Hye-won with a safe mind, with her aunt living near her house and friends visiting from time to time.” Director Lim also set the timing of Hye-won’s mother (Moon So-ri) to run away after Hye-won became an adult. He said, “If Hye-won’s mother ran away before the entrance exam, Korean audiences would not understand.” Even though it is a Japanese original, the film is Korean thanks to the careful adaptation of the production team.
