|Night Flight - Yaganbihaeng- 야간비행 [multi subs]|
|Coming of ageyouth gang|
Every version of this film I've downloaded has had major issues and some flip out several times while playing. I've taken the best version I could find, that flips out at 57:36, and then re-coded it from .mkv to .avi, which seems to allow the film to play straight through. The video momentarily goes a bit wonky at the 57:36 point but that seems to be all, since re-coding I've run it through VLC and my Western Digital Media Player (WD-TV) with no issues. The issue occurred at a critical point in the story, which made it doubly annoying. I'd still dearly like to get hold of a pristine copy of the video, so if anyone knows where I can find one I'd be very grateful.

Yong-Joo and Ki-Woong were friends back in middle school, but they have drifted apart since entering high school. Ki-Taek (Choi Joon-Ha) attended the same middle school as Yong-Joo and Ki-Woong. Ki-Taek is bullied by friends. Yong-Joo tries to help Ki-Taek, but Ki-Woong just watches from a distance.
Meanwhile, Yong-Joo's mother struggles to make a living and raising Yong-Joo alone. Ki-Woong's father fights to get reinstated at work after being fired. School teachers emphasize to the students that their academic scores are more important than their friends.
Yong-Joo feels so lonely. He reaches out his hand to Ki-Woong.

Among other roles Kwak Si-Yang has had is the dark psychopath Tae-Ho in The Witness - Mokkyeokja which stands in stark contrast to the gentle soul of Yong-Joo in this film. See http://asianwiki.com/The_Witness_(Korean_Movie)
Lee Jae-Joon was also in the rather annoying 12 episode soap The Lover - Deo Reobeo (2015), set around an apartment block where various shadings of relationship between the couple in each apartment are pursued. Lee Jae-Joon plays Joon-Jae, a young withdrawn man who is just discovering his sexuality, a very different role from the self assured Ki-Woong of Night Flight.
