Glove, a 2011 South Korean movie directed by Kang Woo-suk, tells the story of a washed-up baseball player named Sang-nam (played by Jae-yeong Jeong) who is assigned to coach a team of hearing-impaired players. The team, made up of a group of misfits, is not taken seriously by anyone and is expected to lose every game. However, Sang-nam takes his job seriously and hopes to help his players find their footing in the game he once loved.

One of the players is a teenage girl named Su-hee (played by Seon Yu). Su-hee's father is a wealthy businessman who is often absent, leaving her to care for her deaf brother. Su-hee has always loved baseball, but her father disapproves of her playing the sport and forbids her from joining the team. Despite her father's disapproval, Su-hee sneaks out to practice with the team and quickly becomes one of their star players.

As the team improves and starts winning games, Sang-nam and his players face opposition from other teams and even some parents who do not believe a team of hearing-impaired players should be allowed to play against "normal" teams. Sang-nam's dedication to his team and his players' determination to succeed against all odds drives the movie's plot forward.

Throughout the movie, we see the struggles of each member of the team as they navigate their hearing loss and how it affects their experiences with baseball. For example, one player is unable to see the signals given by the catcher, so Sang-nam comes up with a system of taps on the ground to indicate what pitch is coming. Another player has a hard time with timing because he cannot hear the crack of the bat, so Sang-nam has him wear a special glove that vibrates when the bat makes contact with the ball.

Glove is not just about baseball, however. It also delves into themes of family, friendship, and perseverance. The relationship between Sang-nam and Su-hee is a heartwarming one as he encourages her to follow her dreams even when her father stands in her way. We also see the importance of teamwork and how each member of the team contributes to their success.

The movie is well-paced, and the acting is excellent, especially from the two leads, Jae-yeong Jeong and Seon Yu. The cinematography is also noteworthy, with stunning shots of the baseball games and some beautiful scenery. While baseball is the driving force behind the movie, even those who are not baseball fans could enjoy it for its inspiring message.

Overall, Glove is a heartwarming movie that tells an inspiring story of a group of people who are often overlooked by society. It is a reminder that with hard work and determination, anything is possible.

Glove is a 2011 drama with a runtime of 2 hours and 24 minutes. It has received mostly positive reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 6.8.
