Comedy, Drama / 99 mins. / Korean / Aug. 13
Joon-geun has postponed everything going on in his life: his dreams and his graduation. After he failed to get in to summer classes and was kicked out of his dormitory, with nowhere to go, he finds himself with a part-time job at a guesthouse for surfers.
When he gets into a scuffle with a rich surfer Sung-min on the beach, they decide to have a surfing battle to decide who’s better at the sport. The loser has to stay off the beach.
The only problem is, Joon-geun doesn’t know how to surf.
With the help of the three veteran surfers in the guesthouse, Joon-geun, with fiery determination, starts training. Perhaps if he wins this nearly impossible bet, he can have the willpower to push forward with everything else that has come to a halt in his life.
Actor Lee Hak-ju, star of the JTBC popular drama series “The World of the Married,” portrays Joon-geun.
