Though dancing in general has grown in popularity here, there is still somewhat of a stigma attached to ballroom dancing, as it is seen as a tool of seduction for the "chebi (swallow)", or gigolos who prey on older women in the nation's seedier nightclubs. Both the pure and seedy sides of the craft is looked at the witty and well-paced film "Dance With The Wind". The film tells of Pung-sik (Lee Sung-jae), an ordinary company man stuck on life's deadening treadmill who becomes transformed after meeting an old friend and professional chebi. For Pung-sik, however, dancing becomes an obsession taking him across the country in a quest to master the art, and though his devotion to his craft seems unquestionable, it also leads him to a lifestyle he most wants to avoid.
