This was a fantastic movie!
It was deep. It was moving. It was beautiful.
A man on deathrow wants to taste “doenjang jjigae” (a spicy Korean bean paste stew) before he dies. Television producer Choi Yu-Jin hears of the inmate and researches his story for an upcoming news report. Choi Yu-Jin then comes across a mysterious woman named Jang Hye-Jin who makes doenjang jjigae that brings tears of joy to those who tastes her recipe. As Choi Yu-Jin delves further, he learns of Jang Hye-Jin’s heart breaking relationship with Kim Hyun-Soo.
I won’t give anything away because I wouldn’t want to ruin any viewers experience, so I’ll just say that this movie was an unexpected treat, as well as a hidden gem just waiting to be discovered! If you’ve seen the movie and want to chat about it, let me know! If you haven’t seen it yet, it’s definitely worth a watch!
I give this movie a 4/5
