Ki Jung won the gold medal at the 1936 Berlin Olympics, but because Korea was under Japanese colonial rule at the time, he wore the Japanese flag on his chest. In 1947, two years after Korea’s liberation from Japanese colonial rule, Seo Yoon Bok is a 24-year-old marathon runner. He prepares for the upcoming 51st Boston Marathon with Head Coach Son Ki Jung and Coach Nam Seung Yong. Running the tricky and tough 42.2-kilometer course in Boston requires intensive training and patience. However, winning was not the only goal for Korean marathoner Seo Yoon Bok and his coach, Son Ki Jung, at the 1947 Boston Marathon. Ki Jung badly wants Yoon Bok to win while wearing the Korean flag on his chest. (Source: AsianWiki) Edit Translation

Where to Watch Boston 1947
Cast & Credits
Unbelievably patriotic historical settingExtremely good screenplay that covers the whole background story of the political situation within sports, plot is rich enough to highlight the hardships of getting into the marathon competition itself, pacing is smooth throughout the movie and the details are so precise that you could really feel the significant amount of pressure along with the journey of the team, more so for its patriotic reason. The buildup for the marathon race has amazing suspense with soundtrack that's thumpingly brilliant, and I've cried so many times watching it. The production value is simply too high for this movie.
I’m happy. I’m Runner.Cukup nyesel karena ga kesampaian nonton di bioskop. Jadi bayangin betapa kerennya scoring dan soundtrack yang penuh emosional menggema di sana. Wajib menang best score/music sih atau minimal masuk nominasi.
Salut sama akting ketiga main role, ada Ha Jung Woo, Im Siwan, dan Bae Seong Woo. Mereka bertiga sukses menciptakan kemistri yang ngena bagi penonton, terkhusus gua. Beberapa scene juga menarik perhatian, seperti scene ketika kakinya Yunbok yang bergetar karena kelelahan terlihat sangat realistis dan karakter ini diperankan dengan totalitas oleh Siwan. Selain itu, alurnya dikemas dengan baik dan sederhana namun tetap menyentuh hati.
Ini film biografi yang bakal memotivasi lu buat lari sih wkwk. Asli deh selama scene maraton dimulai bener-bener nonton dengan hikmat.
