In conjunction with the Singapore Botanic Gardens Heritage Festival held from 30 June to 8 July 2018, the Singapore Botanic Gardens will be screening the Korean movie, “When I Turned Nine”.
“When I Turned Nine” is a film based on the bestselling novel of the same title by Wie Ki-cheol. It tells the story of the friendship between a nine-year-old boy and a girl living in 1970s Korea. It has been said that “The age of nine is an age when one can start to feel the meaning of his existence.” In “When I Turned Nine”, what we see through a boy named Yeo-min is a portrait of ourselves at the age of nine. Even as a nine year old, Yeo-min’s decision and courage in solving problems that life throws at him are wise and respectable. At the end, he surpasses being a child and becomes a man in our eyes.
