Asian Cinema Nite continues this week.

Tuesday 7pm Blue Screening Room

Like A Virgin
directed by Hae-jun Lee, Hae-yeong Lee
In Korean w/ English subtitles
2006 – 116 min.

A movie about a trans-gender teenager trying to win money to get a sex change operation by entering a wresting competition does not sound like a typical high school comedy coming from Korea, but directors, Lee’s pull off a heart warming coming of age, sexual identity, and Rocky-like sports movie all in one. Knowing that he is a woman in a man’s body, Oh Dong-Gu dreams of a sex change operation. He teams up with a local wresting coach to enter a Korean wresting competition (Ssirum) hoping to win the prize money.
