Lifting King Kong

Directed by Park Geon-yong
23 Dec 2011

A retired weightlifter Lee Ji-bong, reluctantly accepts a coaching position at a provincial girls’ middle school. Ji-bong accepts a group of enthusiastic yet clueless teenage girls and initiates them into what is largely considered an unpopular sport. Inspired by a true story, the film shows how the ill-equipped team members become champions at the national sports festival and how in the process, they bond as a team and effectively transform one another’s lives.
