Character and food, a lovely take on source material
Kim Tae-ri has mostly done dramatic, ensemble films in her short but extremely promising career. Here she is the dominant character in a slice of life, and she carries it beautifully. There is not twists or turns, just a normal young woman dealing with growing up, and you stay completely engaged in her story thanks to Tae-ri's performance.
The supporting cast, Ryu Jun-yeol and Jin Ki-joo, playing childhood friends are wonderful as well. Ryu isn't the typical looks for a young Korean actor and all the better, he's actually charming.
Food is a supporting character in of itself, of course. Farming and cooking are centering, the work is worth the reward.
And if you wonder what happens at the end, note, she knows what he told the other woman ;)
