Synopsis
Kuma, a cat, lives with Jung-woo and Kyung-mi, honeymooners who love and cherish Kuma. However, due to their parents’ opposition, Jung-woo and Kyung-mi give Kuma up for adoption, and their college friend, Hye-sun, takes Kuma. After she parts with Kuma, Kyung-mi loses all her will to live. Unable to watch her suffer in such a state, Jung-woo goes to Hye-sun and pleads with her to get Kuma back. “Please give us back our Kuma.” Yet Hye-sun flatly refuses his request. Will Jung-woo be able to get Kuma back?


 

Program Note
The era of non-regular workers, employment instability, and stagnated growth anticipated under the new labor law and advanced by the IMF crisis in the late 90’s was only represented by the resistance of plant workers and comfort for patriarchs symbolized by the country’s sympathy for ‘fathers’. During this period, in which no one cared about how this new unstable era related to ‘the youth’, the film Take Care of My Cat keenly reacted to the youth of that era, who had no one to rely on. Meanwhile, JUNG Jae-eun returns with Give Me Back My Cat to the current era of the 880,000 won generation, where the future of the youth is widely discussed. This film wanders around images that barely guard the present romantic ideals of the youth, such as cafes in the Hongdae area, cats, and a low-rise house with a yard. Can the couple Kyung-woo and Jeong-mi be happy after they take their cat back? [HWANG Miyojo]
