MOM, ME? I
Mom, me? I'm mom? Is a delightful short student film that has a message every kid should hear. While watching it I found myself smiling and laughing fairly often. Throughout the film we see the relationship between a mother and her son that I can actually apply to myself and my relationship with my mother.

The story follows a mom (Kim Jisoo) who gets into an argument with her son Insa (Shin Yuchan) about Children's Day. Insa wishes that his mom could understand him and let him enjoy the day off. Little does Insa know that he should be cautious for what he wishes. Insa and his mom take an interesting ride as they experience a day in each other's shoes.

The story line is very simple, but its simplicity is what made me like it so much. This short film is well written and has a progressing story line that builds upon each scene so that everything makes sense. This is very well executed for a student film. The cinematography is good; each shot is framed well and very clear. The locations confused me a tiny bit, since everything was filmed at a school. Given that, the creativity of making places look like an office or a home comes across quite well. Throughout the film there is background music that captures the tone of each scene very well. The one performance that stood out to me was Shin Yuchan's. I found myself laughing during some comedic parts of his performance. Both characters Shin Yuchan plays (as the mom and Insa) are played very well, especially after the switch. It is as if, out of nowhere, he had an old soul and was now a protective, caring mother. Also, the screenwriters deserve very good props. It is very simply written, but has a good moral message.

The message of this film is that, despite how much you think your parents don't understand, they care for you a lot. Make sure that you don't make an assumption without seeing the whole picture.

My favorite part of this film is when the mom goes to school as Insa and meets Insa's teacher and has a very strange but funny laugh, as if she was talking to a friend. That part, as well as most of the film, made me smile.

I give this film 4 out of 5 stars and recommend kit for ages 8 to 14. You should know that the dialogue is in Korean with English subtitles. Reviewed by Hazel A., KIDS FIRST! Film Critic

Insa has a math score of 60 this time. It's Children's Day soon and I'm worried. This is because every year Children's Day mom couldn't spend Children's Day together as a company job. Eventually, the mother learned about her 60-point math test score, and she was told to study math on Children's Day. Insa thinks that if my mom becomes me, she can understand me. Due to the lightning strike in the sky that night, Insa and Mom change, and Mom goes to school and Insa goes to a company.
