Various women, including a North Korean defector, a banned short track skater, middle age woman and a middle school student, come together to form the first South Korean woman's national ice hockey team.
It was an emotional ride with all those 'Mighty Ducks' feels - an excellent sports movie, that shows just how much grit it takes not to win, but to keep going.
I loved the fact that first; it was focused on the women - all that girl power! And second; it was based on a true story - it shows the courage, the hardships and the relationships that formed over the course read moreof time as they became a great team - not just in skills but because of what they had to endure to get to where they are.
The actressesssss; from Soo Ae (Sweet Stranger and Me) who plays Lee Ji Won, and Park So Dam's' guest appearance (Cinderella and the Four Knights) who plays Lee Ji Hye. As sisters in the movie they brought all that sass and strength to their roles.
You can see a lot of development in the characters/ people they played. For instance Kim Seul Gi (Splash Splash LOVE), who's plays Jo Mi Ran, who at first seems more focused on getting paid than being in a team, but soon evolves into a player that puts a lot of heart into ice hockey. Also, Kim Ye Won (Tomorrow with You) who plays Kim Ga Yeon, who is unemployed and whom is at first only interested in her appearance, but soon develops into someone with a big heart and who isn't afraid to get hurt.
Whether they were at all like the people they were playing is yet to be seen and whether the story stays true to the real events, we cannot be sure, nevertheless they all did well and it put a big spotlight on a team that deserves praise for their efforts.
Instead of Ice Hockey the sport is Table Tennis. Both North and South team up as one to bring glory to their nation; surpassing their nations painful history together. This is Story of friendship and teamwork.
This was more intense, more touching and more realistic than what I was expecting... I liked it, it was very touching seeing them grow step by step, and I loved their teamwork and their hard work, each character had their own story and each of them shined...
