Punch Strike is a story about Mina (PARK Min-ji)\'s delightful, joyful and vivid high school life. Mina one-sidedly loves Chang-min, a handsome boy from a kickboxing club and has a close friendship with Frank and lively Ju-hee. One day Mina\'s ordinary school life is broken at the moment when a teacher nicknamed \'Mad Dog\' (IM Won-hee) slaps her on the cheek in front of many students including Chang-min. \'Mad Dog\' always uses violence and gives speeches and behaves in a way to sexually humiliate the girl students. Mina, Ju-hee and Young-ju, decide between themselves to take revenge on him. \'Mad Dog\' is so hateful that the students\' rebellion is justified and talking about the status of a teacher is difficult in the film. It also has fast dramatic development, well-organized structure and a strong power to capture our attention. Punch Strike is the first feature film by director RYOU Eun-jung who previously has made several short films including Smoke-flavored Life. (KIM Sunah)
