The Lotte Giants’ Choi Dong-won (Cho Seung-woo) and the Haitai Tigers’ Sun Dong-yeol (Yang Dong-geun) are rival pitchers in 1980s baseball. The film reenacts the legendary match of May 16, 1987, which baseball fans today still recall as “the perfect match,” when Choi and Sun compete as pitchers for the last time.
Cast & Credits
This movie reminded me why I love sport sports so much: humility, compassion, love, friendship, hardships, everything. The cast did an amazing job at portraying their characters, you cannot choose a side as personally I was wandering in between the two teams. I'm not going to spoil the end but it was indeed a perfect game.
I recommend this movie to everyone that loves sport, and even to those who don't particularly enjoy it will because there are side stories and the plot is focusing mainly on the development of the caracters.
