On June 6, an independently made film called, Miss Cherry’s Love Puzzle was released. The story deals with unusual episodes of love of four 28-year-old women. The film has gained public attention because of the interesting characters and episodes and three of the main actresses as well as the director, Jung Harin, who are all graduates from the Department of Theater & Film at Hanyang University. She said that she was able to express herself through the main character, Aeongdoo, in the film.
“Aeongdoo is a 28-year-old woman who is socially awkward, especially when it comes to dating. At the time we were making the movie, I was 28 years old too. So in some ways, I felt like I could really relate to that character. As the director, I wanted to show a sense of longing that people at that age generally feel in the characters,” she said. She added that Aeongdoo reminds her of herself, as they both take notes in their daily lives.
In the movie, Aeongdoo always writes down her feelings, whether she is happy or sad. Like the character, Jung also writes notes whenever she hears interesting stories, episodes, or even trivial dialogs from conversations with her friends. Also, she describes everything in a note when something new comes to her mind, which inspires her for making movies. Such a habit is the driving force in her life as a director and the movie Miss Cherry’s Love Puzzle was actually the result of some notes she had written.
Jung explained about why she chose to make a movie like Miss Cherry’s Love Puzzle. “One day, I was wondering about the reason why most stories in the media, such as TV dramas, movies, or lyrics of pop music, deal with only women who have specific kinds of relationships with men. For example, common stories of women deal with how they easily fall in love with someone, break up, and find another lover, or couples having problems because of someone cheating on another. In reality, however, there are many people who are not even dating for one reason or another. I wanted to focus more on these people, from the perspectives of 28-year-old women,” she said.
When asked about what advice she could give to Hanyangians who might be in situations similar to Aeongdoo’s, Jung replied, “After overcoming difficult times like Aeongdoo, who is poor at forming relationships, the lesson a person can learn from her is that through maturity and patience, everyone’s time will come someday. Take things as they come and meanwhile try to enjoy experiences for what they are because they will pass but can serve as fruitful lessons.”
