ACF 036: Miracle on 1st Street

Following its New York Premiere at the New York Asian Film Festival on June 25th, this 2007 Korean film is set for an exclusive theatrical run at The ImaginAsian in New York for one week starting July 6th.
Pil-je (actor Chang Jung Lim) is sent to get a group of have-nots to move from their "homes" on the fringe of Seoul so their land can be developed by ruthless real estate barracudas. Reluctant to give up what little they have, the residents don't cave in.

Pil-je brings in amenities, such as electrical power and the Internet, to make things comfortable for himself, but this inadvertently leads to him becoming a hero to the populace. Meanwhile, he becomes smitten by the beautiful Myung-ran (actress Ji-won ha), who longs to become a boxer like her father.

Of course, the gangsters eventually decide that Pil-je has had more than enough time, and decide to resort to rougher tactics. Mayhem ensues.
