We’ve got completely by no means understood the enchantment of sports activities motion pictures and even sports activities usually. Except for the well being advantages, why the hell does it generate a lot competitors that the popularity of whole nations is on the road? In any case, it is nearly operating after a ball or hitting it with a stick. We’re not searching for solutions right here, though we’re certain sports activities followers might be very vocal about them. Our level is that we didn’t anticipate sports activities to be such an essential a part of Dream, and when that turned out to be the case, we anticipated to be bored. Nevertheless, that didn’t occur. We nonetheless do not love sports activities, however this film was an attractive illustration of what it means for avid gamers to do their greatest in a recreation.
the film is titled Dream for a motive, and this recreation was a method for gamers to show themselves and ship their message, which was their aspiration, for starters. We’re not asking why the cash spent on organizing the video games for the homeless was merely not used to offer them with housing with out going via the difficulty. Dream it isn’t about our incapability to seek out pleasure or which means behind a few males operating after balls; it is about these males who discover a approach to present they matter, and here is a recap of the film.
Why does Yoon Hong Dae coach the soccer group?
It needed to be Kang Ha Neul, who was solid in a cameo as Park Sung Chan. We cherished his pairing in “Midnight Runners,” and seeing him and Park Web optimization Joon collectively as soon as once more was wonderful, even when it solely lasted a couple of minutes.
When Dream begins, Yoon Hong Dae is the hardest-working participant on the group, however he’s sad as a result of he at all times comes second. Along with coping with disappointment over Park Sung Chan’s success, Yoon Hong Dae additionally receives nagging questions on his mom’s elopement from an indignant reporter. Principally, Hong Dae’s mom used her cash to arrange a enterprise, and when that did not work, she ripped off her purchasers and now she’s on the run. Hong Dae is broke and plans to retire from the sport, unable to bear not being adequate. Possibly that is why he tried to match Park Sung Chan’s tempo on the sphere, since this was his final take a look at to see if he might be adequate.
When that did not occur, and the annoying reporter returned, Hong Dae could not resist pricking himself within the eye, the place he had lately had cosmetic surgery lower than a 12 months in the past by getting an worker low cost from his sister. The reporter should not have been severely injured since he was not talked about for compensation. However Hong Dae has gone viral on the web for his stunt, and now he needs to scrub up his picture so he can transition into present enterprise or at the least have a brief stint to earn some cash. That is when Lee Soo Min stepped in to make the documentary about Yoon Hong Dae coaching homeless individuals to play soccer with different homeless individuals from totally different international locations. That is in an try to boost consciousness of the plight of the homeless. To not be crucial, however we consider that given a selection, the homeless would like a house to a conscience. Shifting on, as a lot as Hong Dae does not wish to do that, he has no selection as a result of he has no cash.
Instantly, Hong Dae is uncomfortable with the whole lot. He has no explicit ambitions for the group, so he does not object a lot when Lee Soo Min insists on selecting group members primarily based on their unhappy backstories moderately than their abilities on the sphere. Hong Dae nonetheless has to work to usher in two extra members. One is Seon Beom Su and the opposite is Kim In Su. The key ingredient that brings them to the group is the love of a girl.
Whereas Kim In Su sees his involvement and subsequent entry to a worldwide stage as a approach to discover his lacking (probably deceased) girlfriend, Beom Su is on the group as a result of the lady he loves likes good-looking soccer gamers, and it is one of many few issues he talks about. They’re all on the group for various causes, with Hwan Dong wanting to assist his daughter and Hyo Bong wanting to indicate his son that he’s somebody she will be able to depend on. However when sponsors withdraw funding for his group, Hong Dae loses his motivation first.
Destiny actually is on the group’s facet as a result of when a video goes viral of Hong Dae rescuing Beom Su’s girlfriend from a few thugs, he immediately turns into widespread once more, bringing in sufficient donations for the group to fund itself. Nevertheless, Hong Dae now has a brand new drawback. His company needs to make use of his recognition to ship him to a actuality present, which might imply he cannot accompany the group to their recreation. It is good cash, and that is what he had been scuffling with for thus lengthy. Actually, he additionally helped him get his mom out of jail and provides his relationship one other probability. In each method, it makes extra sense for him to be on the fact present as a result of it isn’t like his soccer group has an opportunity to win the video games anyway. You could not even say that he deserted them as a result of they may nonetheless go overseas and lift consciousness about his scenario whereas Lee Soo Min received the documentary on him. There may be nothing that binds you to them. However on the final minute, Yoon Hong Dae reveals up on the airport to accompany them to their recreation. It isn’t a query of revenue or loss, however of group spirit and ending what was began.
‘Dream’ ending defined: How does the Korean group win the video games?
We had been informed that Yoon Hong Dae was a particularly hard-working participant, however we doubt his teaching abilities if he did not take a look at the competitors beforehand. As anticipated, the Korean group misplaced the primary recreation. However they could not settle for defeat mendacity down as a result of, whether or not it was due to the documentary or coming this far in spite of everything these fights, they wanted to have at the least one win to show it. They discover a shortcut to their subsequent recreation once they commerce two of their members for Brazilian gamers, however despite the fact that they technically win the match, nobody is joyful as all of the credit score goes to the Brazilian gamers.
Earlier than the following recreation with Germany, the teammates should determine how they wish to transfer ahead. Similar to earlier than, they know they cannot win, however that is the primary time they’ve questioned the aim of their go to. Everybody has one thing they wish to obtain, be it for themselves or their family members. Successful utilizing the crutches of others is not going to give them as a lot as dropping after giving it your all. Due to this fact, they determined to not use the Brazilian gamers of their recreation and proceed the match on their very own.
After they all return to the sphere, the general public is aware of indubitably that they’re totally different from what they had been earlier than. The group performs as if their lives are on the road, and nobody cares in the event that they get damage or in ache. For as soon as, the sport issues greater than themselves, and it is merely a matter of spirit and respect for everybody’s efforts. The Korean group is spectacular till the tip. They lose, 6-1, however the best way they performed even marks them because the heroes of the sport. All through the event, he misplaced ten video games, his solely win coming towards the Brazilians. Nevertheless, that is the most well-liked group of all. Lee Soo Min has successful documentary, and the group has sufficient sponsors to final a number of years. In DreamUpon completion, we see that Yoon Hong Dae has as soon as once more joined his former group as a participant. He is discovered the lesson that he does not at all times need to be first or greatest to like the sport for what it’s, and that is why we think about Dream to be among the finest sports activities motion pictures of latest instances.
This movie is a fictionalized account of the primary time Korea participated within the Homeless Soccer World Cup, and it’s true that they received the Greatest Newcomer Award merely due to the spirit and the best way they performed. Keep in mind how we mentioned firstly that we did not like sports activities? However we actually like sportsmanship, and Dream it is an attractive depiction of that, which, in our opinion, is what makes it a great sports activities film. Though it lacked the quantity of comedy that we had been promised within the trailer, the movie gives us rather more and, regardless of a sluggish first half, we advocate watching it.
