Fortune Salon

Cheongdam_Fortune_Teller-p1

Lighthearted and funny…

Do you ever have one those days where you browse the library, of whatever streaming movie site you subscribe to, just to see what they have available? I came across this movie on one of my random browsing ‘adventures.’ ^^

Movie synopsis:

Tae Rang is a gifted clairvoyant who runs a posh fortune telling salon in Cheongdam, Seoul, where she helps guide her elite clients on the matters of life and love. However, fate has it that Tae Rang’s personal life is always cursed. All the men that she has shown any interest in have been harmed in one way or another. As a child, Tae Rang’s mother, also a clairvoyant, told Tae Rang that she is destined to meet a man whom was born on May 16, 1978 at 11 pm before she turns 28.

One day, Seung Won, a former horse jockey now a maintenance worker for horses, spots a 10,000 Won bill on the street and attempts to pick it up. This is when he is hit by a car driven by Tae Rang…

I wasn’t sure how I would like this movie, but I was pleasantly surprised. (Not to mention Im Chang Jung is in it!) It has plenty of comedy to keep you entertained, but the story also takes you on a journey of the main character’s self-discovery, how they deal with disappointment, and ultimately how they come to terms with what’s “meant to be.” Does it have a happy ending? Hrmmm….guess you’ll have to watch it to find out! 😉

I give this movie a 3.5/5
