Review

Seonyoo’s father left this world with a large debt from his business. Mother and 12-year-old Seonyoo are trying to move to a new place and have new start. Seonyoo, once bullied by friends, seems to be adjusting to the new school. She is excelling at school, is good at drawing, and making new friends. Especially, she gets a lot of attention from prankster Jung-gook. By the time Seonyoo’s life, which cast a dark shadow, is gradually brightening up, her grandmother comes to school to collect her father’s death benefit and makes a scene. Everyone at school starts to learn about Seonyoo’s situation. ''Please Don’t Save Me'' begins with the social issue of parents making extreme choices with their children due to economic poverty but serves as a family film as the heart of the story is the child. Acute social issues have become somewhat dull through the eyes of the child, but they seem to have a much greater advantage in terms of consensus. After all, the only way to prevent misjudgments of those who have difficulties is from a warm heart and interest. This is effectively delivered through Jung-gook’s pure love for Seonyoo. [MOON Seok]
