Synopsis: The Elephant On The Bike is a coming-of-age drama about a man whose childhood has been overcast in painful memories due to his disability. This sentimental romantic film features an up-and-coming cast that includes Yang Jin Woo (The Evil Twin , Hwang San Bul ) and Kim Jung Hwa (No Regret, Spy Girl). Newcomer director Kwon Yong Gook takes charge of the megaphone to tell a candid story about one man’s internal struggles as he makes the transition from adolescence to adulthood, carrying the psychological wound caused by his physical deformity, plus the impact of his disability on his family. Despite the constant social and family conflicts that dampen his already disheartened soul, a glimmer of hope arises as he discovers the ultimate joy of life – loving someone and being loved. In his feature-length debut, Kwon conveys the message that not all physically challenged protagonists end up miraculously overcoming their hardships. A poignant tearjerker minus the superficial themes, The Elephant On The Bike offers realism throughout its heartwarming tale. Jin-woo Yang … Dong-gyu Jeong-hwa Kim … Ha-kyeong Kwang-rok Oh … Dong-gyu’s father Hyo-ju Park … Yoo-ri Mi-seong Kim
