Crush and Blush

Crush and Blush

Lee Kyoung-mi’s debut film Crush and Blush is a delightful comedy featuring Kong Hyo-jin. Co-written with Park Eun-gyo and Park Chan-wook, the film centers around Yang Mi-sook, a high school teacher who struggles with a chronic condition that causes her face to turn extremely red, especially under stressful circumstances. The drama begins when she shamelessly pursues a married colleague, who was once her teacher, after ten years of an enduring crush. Determined to succeed in her love mission, she boldly marches on embracing herself, however seemingly unpopular or uninteresting.
