Although "The First Lap" is touted as an exploration of a long-term couple deliberating over their future, these posters reflect the tenderness and affection that have kept them together for so many years. Bathed in soft light and highlighted by their smiles, there is something to this couple that makes them special. The question is, will that something special carry them through the hardships of family and life's circumstances?
-Yours, Lisa, who loves the visuals of these newest powers
"The First Lap" (2017)
Directed by Kim Dae-hwan
The first step of starting a family, the first step of facing the family you have run away so far.
Soo-hyeon, a teacher at a private art institute and Ji-yeong, a contract worker at a small network enterprise have been living together for 6 years. To his surprise, Soo-hyeon finds out that Ji-yeong is late on her period.
One evening, the couple heads to the new home of Ji-yeong's parents in Incheon. The housewarming party dissolves in ill humor when Ji-yeong's mother strongly urges the couple to get married. At the end of a long day, the couple tries to sleep.
As Soo-hyeon decides to reunite with his family he had been avoiding for some time, the couple sets off for Samcheok at the far end of the east coast.
