  裕敏是一名小學三年級生,只有九歲的他要照顧的事情太多了。

  為了給患上眼疾的母親買一副太陽眼鏡,不惜放學後當童工賺錢,儲下一分一亳;為了保護好友,他連番和小霸王黑鳥惡鬥,拳拳到肉的挨揍乃是兵家常事。為了一名由漢城來的女生雨琳,不單給老師體罰,還和青梅竹馬的女性小好友反臉。

  裕敏的九歲人生,充滿數之不盡的煩惱,親情、友情、愛情,還有學校生活,笑中有淚,他可否一一迎刃而解?

  Yeo-min is a matured and thoughtful 9 year old boy who has too many things to take care of.

  First, he has to sell ice cream bars after school to save enough money to buy a pair of sunglasses for his mother who injured her eye while working at a factory. Second, he has to protect his friends from the neighborhood bully Black Bird. Third, when a pretty city girl Woo-rim moves into his village, everything falls into a great confusion.

Definitely not just a kids' movie! Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
There is a certain order to life among the children depicted in "When I Turned Nine". The bullying Black Bird rules the roost, with Yeo-Min his up and coming rival for supremacy. Among his friends, Yeo-Min is regarded as the captain and defender. One little girl in particular is captivated by Yeo-Min. But life is tough for the lad; his loving mother lost an eye in an industrial accident and now people in the town regard the woman as contagiously unlucky. Yeo-Min wishes to buy his mother a pair of sunglasses so that her milky eye will not be exposed to strangers; he devotes all his free time to a series of odd jobs to earn money for the glasses.

Into this well-ordered world comes pretty Woo-Rim, whose looks and stylish clothes set her apart from her new classmates. Woo-Rim captivates some classmates and alienates other with tales of her life in America and the gifts she receives from her father who she says still lives there. Yeo-Min is smitten and, as a consequence, life among his friends his turned upside down.

"When I Turned Nine" beautifully and memorably captures the profound joys and sorrows of childhood and, in its very particular small town Korean setting, manages to develop timeless and universal themes of loyalty and love that viewers of all ages everywhere will find to be powerfully moving.

You got to see this one Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
Okay, honestly I don't usually watch these little kid movies. I think that they will be kind of boring. But somehow I ended watching this one. I'm glad that I actually saw this movie because it was really good movie.

This movie had everything. There was romance, comedy, and a great story. I thought I wouldn't like the comedy they would do but it was good. I there I would not like these little kids chemistry but they did it well. The story had a direction, it was leading and building up to something, and I'm not going to tell you because it will spoil the movie.

You got to see "when I turned nine"!

Awesome! Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
this movie is totally awesome. i got a dvd copy from a last-day sale (so i got it in a very,very low price) and i absolutely do not regret having bought this! this is quite a relief from all those adult romantic films and the likes because the main cast here were children. the "love" that was tackled here was more of the mother-son love.the movie was really touching. i watched it with my dad and we didn't care how many tears we've cried...

this movie is really worth buying!
