Storyline

This independent melodrama, a Korean Leaving Las Vegas (1995) according to its creator, depicts the fragile bonding of two people who thought they would never love again. He is an unjustly convicted chef who voluntarily contracts HIV from another inmate's needle in order to get released from prison. Then he can find out who really murdered his wife. She was a magician's assistant, who fell miserably in love with her boss. Now she runs a remote restaurant on the windswept coast of South Korean's Jeju island. Their paths cross after he escapes from prison, visiting the young woman at the request of a fellow inmate. She gives him a job as a chef, and they begin to get closer. Despite the relaxing seaside idyll and the ray of hope shining down on the characters' stark lives, happiness is forbidden them. A nationwide police search has begun for the fugitive and the inescapable threat of death from AIDS hangs over him every moment like a shadow. Written by Karlovy Vary International Film Festival

Very sad and mystical
19 May 2014 | by (Florida) – See all my reviews

This is one of the saddest movies I have ever seen. I love Nam Gil Kim and bought this DVD off Amazon; even though it was a low budget independent film I will watch anything he is in. The man seethes with a Brando-like sensuality in every K-drama and film I see him in. There may be other even more handsome Korean actors out there but there's just something about this guy the others don't have, a touch of sadness and forlorn resolution, which is perhaps why his characters so often die in the end.

Woo-seul-hye Hwang is also very lovely in this film. Her character has to learn in the most difficult, violent ways possible that life is hard and unfair -- the male character she falls in love with already knows it's hard and nothing really surprises him but kindness when he finds it -- rarely. The girl suffers so much in this story, and only finds comfort in this man on the run from the police.

I don't want to give away too many plot details, but if you don't mind sad stories and you like the actors then give this one a try. I would say it's not for anyone age 17 or younger. Adult material is pretty much consistent throughout.
