YesAsia Editorial Description

My Little Bride's Moon Geun Young slips on her dancing shoes for The Innocent Steps, a heartwarming motion picture about innocent love and the power of dance! In this second film from director Park Young Hun (Addicted), teen star Moon plays Jang Chae Rin, a young Korean girl from the poor Chinese town of Yanbian. When her dance champion sister bows out of an upcoming national dancing competition in Seoul, Chae Rin poses as her sister and attends the event in her place. One problem: Chae Rin has zero dancing experience!

Co-starring in this winning romance is Park Geon Hyeong (DMZ) who plays her dance partner, Na Young Sae. As a former member of South Korea's national dance team, Young Sae exudes professionalism, refusing to get involved with the film’s beautiful heroine. But as their practices continue, a bond between the two soon develops, as she learns not only how to dance from Young Sae, but how to love as well. But what happens when the villainous Jeong Hyeon Su (Yoon Chan) enters the picture and tries to break them apart? Will their budding romance survive?

As with her previous hit film, My Little Bride, Moon Geun Young wins over her audiences with her loveable, wide-eyed charisma, but this time around, she brings with her a level of maturity that might surprise viewers. Critically-acclaimed for his performance in the local stage version of Saturday Night Fever, Park Geon Hyeong acquits himself well as the male lead, sure to win the hearts of female viewers with his dancing skills and winning good looks. Fans of old-fashioned love stories with a contemporary sensibility won't go wrong with The Innocent Steps, an entertaining romance that'll make you want to dance the night away!

저와 영새아저씨의 이야기입니다.
혹시, 저의 이야기가 당신의 이야기와 닮아 있나요?
저는 장채린, 반딧불이 지천으로 날리고 야래향 향기가 설레던 곳, 중국에서 왔습니다.

“어쩌면 그 사람이 나를 좋아해 줄지도 모릅니다...”

연길에서 출발해 한국, 인천으로 향하는 훼리 안.
눈발에 뿌옇기만 하던 인천항이 보이기 시작하면서 설레임이 점점 두려움으로 변해가는 채린(문근영). 어른스럽게 화장을 하고 잔뜩 멋을 부려봤지만 어색하기만 하다. 배가 멈추면 채린은 <조선자치주 댄스선수권대회>에서 계속 우승을 해왔던 언니가 되어야 한다.

“이렇게 희망을 걸어도 되는 걸까...”

한때 최고의 선수로 촉망 받던 영새(박건형).
영새에게 파트너는 남다른 의미를 지닌다. 2년간 포기하고 있었던 자신의 꿈을 다시 찾겠다는 것과, 첫 사랑 세영을 잊겠다는 다짐. 어쩌면 이번 새로운 파트너와 3달 후에 있을 선수권대회에서 재기할 수 있을지도 모른다!

“누구든지, 아는 사람을, 하나라도 만나고 싶습니다...”

언니 대신 온 것이 밝혀지고 채린의 입국에 돈을 썼던 영새의 선배 상두는 채린을 술집에 팔아 넘긴다. 이백만원의 월급과 춤을 가르쳐 준다는 말에 희망을 잃지 않는 채린. 영새와 지냈던 몇 일 간의 따뜻했던 추억과, 연습실에서 본 아름다운 드레스와 슈즈를 기억하며 견뎌 내리라 다짐한다. 그러나 현실은 너무나 처절하다...

“너 계속 거짓말 하면 버리고 간다!”

“아즈바이, 저 춤 배워서 꼭 가겠습니다!”해맑은 채린의 목소리가 자꾸 귓가에 맴도는 영새. 세상물정 모르고 순진하기만 한 채린... 절대 참견하지 않으리라 맘 먹었지만 도저히 놔둘 수 없어 그녀를 데리러 간다. “너 진짜 몇 살이야?”, “스물네..살이요....”, “거짓말 하면 버리고 간다!”겉으론 냉정한 듯 해도 진심으로 걱정해주는 영새에게 고마움을 느끼는 채린. 마음속으로 되뇌어 본다. "두 달 후면...스무 살, 아저씨를 사랑해도 되는 나이가 됩니다.”

"부탁이 있어요, 저에게도 그랑 알레그로를 가르쳐주세요!”

영새에게 댄스스포츠를 배우는 채린. 영새의 전 파트너 세영이 그랑 알레그로(발레동작의 공중회전과 퀵스텝을 적용시킨 최고의 기술)를 추었다는 이야기를 들은 채린은 그 기술을 배우길 원한다. “사랑을 하지 않으면 몸을 완전히 맡길 수 없어. 춤을 출 때만은 나를 사랑한다고 생각해!”
두 사람 사이에 신뢰 이상의 감정이 생기면서 댄스는 더욱 빛을 발하고...
한편 채린을 데려왔던 상두는 채린이 발군의 실력을 보이자 영새의 전 라이벌이자 재력가인 현수를 찾아가는데...

Professional Review of "Innocent Steps (DVD) (Korea Version)"

May 17, 2006

Moon Geun Young, star of the hit romantic comedy My Little Bride, takes the lead role in Innocent Steps, a charming, although not wholly satisfying romantic comedy from director Park Young Hun. The teen idol plays Jang Chae Rin, an ethnic Korean living in China, who finds herself to be a complete fish out of water after being transplanted abroad to South Korea. When her sister bows out of a dummy marriage to a champion dance instructor, Chae Rin decides to travel to Seoul herself and impersonate her sister. Once in South Korea, she meets Na Young Sae (Park Geon Hyeong), who has agreed to the sham marriage for the sole purpose of locating a new dance partner. It seems he's looking to replace the one he lost to his rival, the dastardly Jeong Hyeon Su (Yoon Chan). But when Chae Rin's secret and her lack of dancing experience is revealed, Young Sae wants to send his new bride back, but eventually, he has second thoughts and decides that his only hope is to train this wide-eyed novice himself.

Of course, the practices start off as purely professional, but as Chae Rin begins to dedicate herself to the art of dancing, a connection between the newlyweds begins to take shape. Chae Rin's youthful exuberance and folksy way of speaking eventually charms Young Sae's hardened heart. There's even an amusing subplot about two immigration officers seeking to expose the couple's secret, while eventually rooting for the two to stay together. However, all that funny business comes to a close about an hour into the proceedings. Oddly enough, things take a dark turn in the film's final act when Young Sae's old nemesis returns to turn his world upside down. It turns out that things aren't quite what they seem. As a result, the couple gets broken apart, and Young Sae suffers a devastating loss. Can there possibly be a happy ending for these two?

Well, yes. Innocent Steps is a romantic comedy after all. However, the lack of a more traditional rousing ending makes the film a mixed bag to say the least. Although it may seem strange to suggest it, this is the one case in which the story would have benefited from actually sticking with genre conventions. From the very beginning, the type of relationships and conflicts depicted in the film seem to fall in line with the typical romance. Although it's commendable that the filmmakers decided to break from tradition toward the story's end, it's important to realize that formulas work for a reason. For Innocent Steps to depart from that tried-and-true method after about an hour of fantastic build-up ends up subverting expectations in a way that the audience will neither understand nor appreciate. It just doesn't make sense for a film that is so clearly a romantic fantasy to suddenly become gritty and realistic. Who wants to see a romance in which bad deeds go unpunished, and the good people must simply make do with their circumstances? Even if love prevails, it does not conquer all. And thus, what you have in the end is something that's a comedy in neither the contemporary nor Shakespearean sense.

Even so, much of the film is a joy to watch in no small part due to the performance of Moon Geun Young. Her character is cute, to be sure, but not in a saccharine sweet kind of way. Her performance creates a curious balance between youthful exuberance and a kind of restrained maturity, especially in her more serious scenes with co-star Park Geon Hyeong. Yes, the initial portions of the film are formulaic and predictable, but the chemistry between the two leads wins out. The film's final act does detract from the experience, but the goodwill the film has earned in the early goings carries all the way through to the finale. Even with all the darkness, there's quite a bit of light at the end. As they say, all's well that ends well. It's just too bad Innocent Steps didn't end a little better.

Moon Geun Young is a star! Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
"Innocent Steps" is the ultimate chick flick, a romantic, if improbable, fantasy dominated by the wide-eyed, innocent appeal of Moon Geun Young. Park your credulity at the door; from Miss Moon's lame attempts at speaking Chinese to the perfect timing of the fireflies at film's end, this is not a movie for the skeptical.

It is, however, a colorful, lively, and lyrical romance, with some nice comic touches thrown into the film's first half. Miss Moon owns this film from start to finish. You really can't take your eyes off of this expressive young charmer.

Watch this film for the sheer joy of watching Miss Moon take flight. Recommended for a general audience.

yay moon geun young Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
How does moon geun young do it!! In every movie she does she is able to capture the right mood and emotions of the character. Innocent steps is no difference, moon geun young plays a woman in desperate need of money, and she becomes a dancer. Park gun hyung teaches her to dance, and although at first they do not quite click, they eventually fall in love. Good ending and definitely seems to have put some time into the dancing and choreography. a must see for mgy fans!! 10/10

LOVED IT Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
I am fond of dancing. I really like this movie. Moon looks a little matured here playing a chinese girl who wanted to learn how to dance in replacement of her sister who acidentally get married.

The love story that started to develop between them while learning is really remarkable. The dance steps are ok...as if they really are dancing well in this movie.

Park Myung... is he really a dancer..His really great and graceful. I hope to see movie korean movies with dances. Get a copy.
