Springtime (Hangul꽃피는 봄이 오면; RRGgotpineun bomi omyeon; lit. When Spring Comes) is a 2004 South Korean film starring Choi Min-sik as a struggling musician who takes a job as a music teacher in a rural mining town outside of Seoul.


To trumpeter Hyun-woo, life seems to remain forever locked in winter. In desperation, Hyunwoo signs up for a position teaching a children’s wind ensemble at a small junior high school in a distant Dogye village. Worn-out instruments, tarnished trophies and frayed certificates testify to the poor conditions of this ragtag group. This leads Hyun-woo, together with his students, to take on a seemingly impossible challenge.
