Coming of Age in Camelot: The saga of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight

It was Christmastide at King Arthur’s Camelot when the mysterious green-clad knight appeared. He was a giant of a man, and, all the women thought, including the young and impressionable queen Guinevere, as beautiful as he was brave.

My Mother the Mermaid: Film a cautionary tale

Directed by Park Heung-shik, My Mother the Mermaid (Ineoh Gong-Joo), opens on Jin-kook and Yeon-soon and their children, as they must give all the family’s money, money saved for their daughter’s school tuition, to pay debt from a loan that Jin-kook inherited when it’s cosigner died. Yeon-soon is upset because the family has lost its home, has no money to pay Na-young’s, their daughter’s, tuition, and is struggling financially. Yeon-soon, who has worked hard to give her daughter the life she never had, must tell Na-young she must go to work and to do her schooling “later.”
