Take Care of My Cat
(고양이를 부탁해 Goyangireul Butakhae
) is a 2001 South Korean coming of age
film. The movie chronicles the lives of a group of friends — five young women — a year after they graduate from high school, showing the heartbreaking changes and inspiring difficulties they face in both their friendships and the working world.
Though critically acclaimed in its native South Korea, the film's box office returns were not so great, prompting a 'Save the Cat' movement involving film-industry professionals to try to increase viewership before its theatrical run would be cut short. The film went on to many international film festivals as well, where it received awards and special mentions.
The film is the debut work of director Jeong Jae-eun, who would later go on to direct the 2005 film The Aggressives.
