January 20 Bow in Korea for Director Kang Woo-suk's New Film, "Glove"

2011/01/15 | Permalink | Source

Kang Woo-seok, perhaps best-known overseas for "Silmido" (2003), most recently directed "GLove", set for release throughout Korea on January 20.

Based on a true story, it's the moving saga of 10 young baseball players from a Catholic school for hearing-impaired children and teenagers who are coached to the national junior competition – by a pro-baseball pitcher who had been ousted from the league for his behavior. The player redeems himself through the process and the youngsters learn to believe in themselves, to trust and communicate in ways much more profound than the spoken word.

Local critics have described "GLove" as a heartwarming and inspiring sports drama.

The theme song for "GLove" is sung by the winner and runner-up, respectively, of the 2010 Superstar K Season 2 – Huh Gak and John Park.
