A Real Friend is Hard to Find … Impossible to Forget

Seven, long-lost childhood friends come together once again in middle age, discovering that just maybe you can come home again, in Sunny, reuniting on DVD Aug. 21 from CJ Entertainment America.

Na-mi fondly recalls her childhood pal Chun-hwa, who befriended her as the ostracized, new girl in school, welcoming her into a clique nicknamed “Sunny.” Together, they survive tumultuous ’80s Seoul and vow to remain together forever.

Now a housewife with an ungrateful teenage daughter and trapped in a stale marriage to a wealthy but unaffectionate husband, Na-mi long ago lost touch with the six girls from whom she was once inseparable, torn apart by circumstance.

But one day – while visiting her mother at the hospital – she encounters Chun-hwa, who is now terminally ill. As the two renew their relationship and reminisce, Chun-hwa implores Na-mi to bring the scattered group together one last time.

Featuring an ’80s pop hits soundtrack, this heartwarming film will alternately make you laugh and cry as these long-lost friends discover they can still change one another’s lives …

With an international box office gross of more than $51 million to date, Sunny enjoyed a successful U.S. theatrical release in 11 markets and won seven awards – including two for
“Best Director” (Kang Hyeong-chul) and one for “Best New Actress” (Kang So-ra) – at a
variety of film festivals and award shows around the world.

Sunny is presented in widescreen with an aspect ratio of 16x9 and Korean 5.1 Dolby Digital.  DVD extras include “Production Design: Remaking the ’80s” and “Making Of” featurettes;
’80s hit pop soundtrack; poster photo shoot; soap opera special; theatrical trailers; and music video.
