BIRTHDAY KOREAN MOVIE

Birthday is a South Korean drama film written and directed by Lee Jong-eon and released in 2019 in South Korea. The story is based on the sinking of the Sewol on April 16, 2014, which left more than 300 dead, mostly high school students.

This is the second time that actors Seol Kyeong-gu and Jeon Do-yeon have performed together, 18 years after I Wish I Had a Wife (2001).

The film arrives first at the South Korean box office of 2019 in its second week of operation with less than 400,000 admissions but nevertheless benefits from the lack of big competition as most studios prefer not to release their main films just before the release of Avengers: Endgame on April 24, 2019 (the previous installment, Avengers: Infinity War, had more than 11 million admissions in 2018)
