Although the phrase 'gender equality' has been used for a while in Korean society, gender is still regarded as a matter of confrontation rather than coexistence. A baseball player wants to enter the professional league. She is a woman, and although the legal restrictions are no longer in place, cultural and conventional barriers are still in force. What’s interesting in this film is that it doesn’t deal with the somewhat melodramatic "because she’s a girl" issue, but rather with the growing pains of a rite of passage everyone must go through. It’s an encouragement for all the young ones taking steps towards their dreams without foul play. (KIM Se-jin)
