Storyline

In-ku (HAN Seok-kyu) is a neighborhood pharmacist with a good job and great personality. But for In-ku, marriage is nothing short of an unattainable dream, as long as his mentally handicapped brother In-seob (LEE Han-ewi) remains his responsibility. Hye-ran (KIM Ji-soo) moves into In-ku's neighborhood. She is a designer who copies the fashion lines of luxury design houses. Hye-ran is pretty and sophisticated, but for the past 5 years, she has been working to pay back the US$ 500,000 debt that her father racked up before his death. Depressed over the news of his ex-girlfriend's plans for a wedding, In-ku sits down to a couple of beers. Just then, Hye-ran walks into his drugstore, asking for a sleeping pill to help her go to sleep. Instead of the pill, In-ku hands over a can of beer. The mood turns friendly over the cans of beer, and slowly, the two begin to develop feelings for each other. And they find themselves going down the road neither of them thought they will ever be on again -... Written by CJ Entertainment

Trivia

Writer and director Seung-wook Byeon, who had previously served as assistant director on Peppermint Candy (1999), spent five years working on the screenplay for Solace (2006). His intention for the film was to focus on real-life issues and avoid the predictability of other melodramas, saying, "We tried to cut down on sentimental stuff as much as possible and tried to fill that space with an emotional one".

Great film about finding what you need...
22 August 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a self-exploration film disguised as a love story. Two people whom aren't necessarily in great places in their lives fall in love with each other and find comfort in that in each other's company their problems don't exist. However, this doesn't stop them from having to face them. This is really one of those it's the journey not the ending that matter type of movie.

The acting is good if not great, same for the direction. The writing was spot on, and didn't say more than it needed to say. I don't think there was an unnecessary bit of information in the story or dialog. Music was good as well.

All in all, this was a well paced emotionally involving drama that is rewarding to the viewer in the end.
