10 Minutes (Korean: 10분; Hanja: 10分; RR: Sipbun) is a 2013 South Korean film directed by Lee Yong-seung. It premiered at the 2013 Busan International Film Festival and was released in theaters on April 24, 2014.
Kang Ho-chan is studying and preparing for his dream job as a TV station producer. Barely scraping by since his father's retirement, his family has high hopes for him. However, he fails time and time again to get into the station and eventually ends up getting a part-time job at a government office to support his family. One day, one full-time employee resigns and Ho-chan's boss offers him a permanent position. Ho-chan hesitates between his long-time dream of becoming a producer and a steady job. After thinking long and hard, he chooses to be realistic and take the offer, but someone else gets appointed for the job.
