On arrival at the dance studios, Min-jae isn't pleased to find that Soo-jin will also be taking the class - although he soon realises that it might give him a chance to get to know her...
«Flying Boys has a plot, of course -- and an interesting one -- but more important than the events it covers, the film's heart lies in sketching an honest, understanding portrait of a particular time in life: the last year of high school. ... Still, it's hard not to look on this film with a great deal of affection. It's very good at portraying the small victories and losses we face in the process of becoming an adult.»
«FLYING BOYS is in many ways very, very average. What stands in its favour – and raises it just above the stifle-a-yawn-average-status it seems to promise – is the quality of the filmmaking. It offers no surprises, but it's a feelgood film that's well told, well written and well acted.»
