Take Off 국가대표


This movie was really great – except for the part where the adoptee speaks perfect Korean, it was very realistic and treated his ambivalence towards Korea with a measure of reality not seen before.  It is based on a true story.

Here’s the first 8 minutes, which will give you a sense of this ambivalence that is being an adoptee here in Korea, and some of the attitudes Koreans have towards us.

And the actual reality of his mom who was forced to give him up.
