description

Although the love between a young girl and her Prince Charming is by no means an unusual topic for filmmakers, this film differentiates itself in that it adroitly combines love with the life of professional dancers and reaffirms the consummate skills of Mun Geunyeong, one of the most-sought-after teen idol actresses. After all, this film is totally devoted to 19-year-old Mun, who is touted as the "national younger sister" of Korea, and who appears here as an ethnic Korean novice-turned-professional dancer Jang Chaerin from the Yanbian autonomous prefecture in northeastern China. Mun again wins the hearts of her fans with her cute and innocent look. Although the story develops in an old-fashioned style, the film is still entertaining thanks to the versatile Mun's matured acting and "innocent step" dance skills combined with the exciting rhythms of samba, cha-cha and rumba dancing. Fresh after arriving at Incheon harbor to replace her elder dancing-queen sister (who is unable to join the national sports dance championship due to marriage), Jang forms a new partnership with former veteran dancer Yeongsae (Park Geonhyeong). When it is disclosed that Chaerin has entered Korea with her sister's passport, she falls under the control of human traffickers and is almost sold to a seedy bar when Yeongsae rescues her. After some twists, she learns not only the art of dance, but also the meaning of true love. The young actress does an impressive job of displaying her newly mastered dancing skills in a thigh-length red dress (prior to filming, Mun reportedly had intensive training in dancing and even visited Yanbian to master the different accent of ethnic Koreans living there). The actress seemed born to play this role though she falls slightly short in depicting deep feelings of love due to her comparatively young age. The glow of fireflies that Mun raises here is a kind of metaphor for love.

Innocent Steps.......an innocent sort of love
This is a more than excellent film. It is a bittersweet romantic movie. The storyline is well written, and a good length for a movie. I have watched this over and over again.
