You gotta watch it
12 December 2019 | by natsuka_areiSee all my reviews

I like this movie. Cinematic wise, it was awesome. Beautifully captured. Story wise, this was one hidden-gem just like The Parasite Movie (another must-watch Korean Movie).

I think the story depicted on how 'woman' perceived in the Korean society/ Asian culture. It highlights several social issues for woman (career, dream, self-dependent, social/peer pressure, social expectation of 'what a good wife/good woman should be/act) by presenting us the life of Kim Ji-Young, young wife lived with her little daughter and husband.

Throughout the story,the characters in it overcame the issues in quite realistic way that maybe some of us can relate to our actual life. After watching it, I feel empowered and satisfied.
