A nostalgic trip to our teen years of dreams and wonder. A time where we all tried to learn to deal with life, adults, friends, relationships, and to figure out ourselves and our futures...

Green Days: '(Korean: 소중한 날의 꿈; RR: Sojoonghan Nalui Ggoom; lit. "Dream of a Precious Day") is a 2011 South Korean animated film. Without the high-tech computer graphics and three-dimensional techniques that dominate the animation industry, the film was hand-drawn in pencil, with 14 animators using 100,000-plus sheets over a period of 11 years. It premiered at the 15th Busan International Film Festival in 2010 and competed for the top prize at the 2011 Annecy International Animated Film Festival.

Plot- Set in a 1970s rural town, 'Green Days: Dinosaur and I' is a nostalgic coming-of-age story about a high school girl who struggles to find meaning in her existence and learns to confront her biggest fears, while also falling in love for the first time:

Not wanting to lose, Yi-rang orchestrates a collapse in the middle of a relay race even though she's on the verge of giving up her dream of becoming an athlete. At the same time, Soo-min transfers in from Seoul and Cheol-soo, who dreams of becoming a scientist, come into her life. They are all immature but they are in the midst of youthful aspiration.

With this warm-hearted animation, Han Hye-jin-I and Ahn Jae-hoon encourage Yi-rang's dreams and portray the fantasy and flutter of adolescence through encounters with good people. Set in the '80s and '90s, an old umbrella and a railroad crossing the downtown in the film is the stuff that reminds us of our lost past, evoking a reminiscence in the audience of that which is vanished.

It is a way of evoking the real "dreams" that we have lost in this modern society where a rapid capitalization is progressing.

Yi-rang (voiced by Park Shin-hye) has all but given up on her athletic aspirations, when she meets Cheol-soo (Song Chang-eui), who dreams of becoming an astronaut, and Soo-min (Oh Yeon-seo), a transfer student from Seoul. The film follows the adolescents' budding romance, growing pains, hopes and dreams.' (Wikepedia)
