Storyline

Dae-kyu works hard to contribute Korean music industry's development: unfortunately, this hard work is for an illegal distributor, dealing in pirated albums. His only hobbies are buying lottery tickets and pathetic attempts at hitting on women. Then one day, into his life of fakery comes something very real - a 9-year-old son he never knew he had. Chun In-kwon simply shows up one day at Dae-kyu's slovenly apartment, unannounced, telling Dae-kyu that he plans on living with "daddy" from now on. Dae-kyu cannot believe what he's hearing, but he realizes that there is a slight chance that this boy might be his, the result of his sad, first love from his university days. But Dae-kyu is not ready for his single life to end just yet, so he does all he can to return the boy to his mother. He does everything he can thing of - takes In-kwon to the police, offers him money, even just runs away - but nothing shakes the determined child. Finally, In-kwon suggests a deal: if Dae-kyu helps him ... Written by CJ Entertainment

Some things are never too late to go through
22 April 2005 | by (Oriental State of Mind) – See all my reviews

The first 15 minutes of the film feel rather fast paced and unaware of its direction, but as the two main characters isolate themselves from the busy world and get closer with each other, it becomes impossible not to empathize with whatever unfolds on their journey.

The story itself is a rather simple one and maybe even common to some. Dae-Gyu is a working man, living a stress free dating life until one day a young boy claiming to be his son pays him an unexpected visit. After much wavering and struggle to make his son go away, Dae-Gyu makes a compromise to go on a road trip after which he would return the boy to his mother. Without getting into more detail, this story is filled with fine performances from Chang Jung Lim and Lee-In Seong, considering that this was the first role for the young actor and a surprisingly good dramatic delivery from Chang who mostly does comedy. Obviously this film shares a similar theme with a more comic and subtle film from Takeshi Kitano called Kikujiro, but it definitely stands on its own ground with a harmonious tale involving change, sacrifice and embrace.

I found this film affecting despite not being the biggest fan of teary drama, but more so because of personal associations with the story, perhaps even due to lack thereof in some ways. If you are looking for a good father-son drama with light humor then don't look further than this film.
