Described as a Korean cousin to Studio Ghibli in style, Green Days uniquely illustrates the universal theme of the highs and lows of adolescence. Arang, a young competitive relay runner who dreams of becoming a professional athlete, orchestrates a collapse in the middle of a relay race rather than coming in second place. At the same time, Soo-min transfers in from Seoul and meets Cheol-soo, who dreams of becoming a scientist, and the two quickly form a special bond. They are all young and believe that they will become what they dream, but with life’s insecurities confronting them at every corner, will they be able overcome such hurdles and make their dreams into reality?

In this warm-hearted animation, the directors Han Hye-jin and Ahn Jae-Hun vividly bring to life the dreams and fantasy of adolescence, shown through the encounters between impossibly aspiring kids. Set in the ‘80s and ‘90s, the dreamy world and youthful imagination remind its audience of our lost dreams and hopes. The film has a beautiful and unique way of evoking the childhood “dreams” that have become buried with age.
