In Between Days (Korean: 방황의 날들) is a 2006 film directed by So Yong Kim about a young girl from Korea and her coming of age in her new surroundings. The film premiered at the 2006 Sundance Film Festival, and was released into select theaters on June 27, 2007.


Much of the film's focus is on the relationship of Aimie, a teenage Korean immigrant in North America, and her best friend, Tran. Each is ambivalent about romantic feelings for the other and communicate through indirect means of hoping the other can read their mind, often followed by passive-aggressive tactics when such indirect communication inevitably leads to disappointment. Subplots concern Aimie's strained relationship with her mother, the absence of her father, and her increasing loneliness and isolation as she drifts apart from Tran.


  • Jiseon Kim as Aimie
  • Taegu Andy Kang as Tran
  • Bokja Kim as Mom
  • Kim Gina as Michelle
  • Virginia Wu as Michelle's friend
  • Mike Park as Steve


The overpass where Aimie and Tran always cross, is next to the Oriole GO Station in Toronto, Ontario.


The film won a Special Jury Prize for Independent Vision at the 2006 Sundance Film Festival.
