Upcoming movies

How do I put this. A gay movie. Not my fault that lately everything started to revolve around this. The Life Is Beautiful-gate hasn’t ended yet. Damn, if they marry in this drama, I guess actors will be crucified. Crap, I made a religious reference, just sue me, please. And get over with it.
And don’t ask me why there is a cat as the picture anchor.

Plot:

Sin-goo is the owner of a car bar near Daehak-ro. His 40 years of life exist without sex because he is always so busy, but he lives on a joy of making money. Joon-seung is a 20 year-old guy who recently got together with his birth mom; even though he was hard to say ‘Mom’ to her mother, he really wants to help her out by making some money.
Joon-seung happened to work for Sin-goo as kitchen porter. Joon-Seung fell for Sin-goo who he felt he was like a thoughtful brother, and Sin-goo also fell for Joon-seung. One day, they spend the night together due to Sin-goo’s heavy drinking; Sin-goo also has relationship with his alumna, Seong-ja. He blames everything on an alcohol. But later on, the relationship between Sin-goo and Joon-seung gets more and more serious. On the other hand, Seong-ja thinks Sin-goo as her real lover, while Sin-goo is dazed by the fact that Seong-ja and Joon-seung are mother and son.
Pretty middle aged guy Sin-goo gets blind love from both Seong-ja and Joon-Seung. Will his confused sexuality and loves of his lifetime end happily? (Hancinema)
Just have to admit, this is one of the weirdest plots I have ever read. The movie will be kind of short, 80 minutes, and is from 2009, but waited a whole year for the release. I wonder why?
I wonder also how mommies will react and already reacted when in SKKS a word “gay” was spoken. I bet this drama will get its share of beating, for depraving young people and other nonsense. Jeez… stupidity annoys me lately.

Release date in South Korea : 2010/10/21
Cast:
Lee Yowon

Hancinema official
Naver official
Plot:

Also known as “Doenjang”
When a convict on death-row wants bean paste stew before he dies, a director becomes curious. He finds out many surprising truths.
A notorious murderer’s last words before execution are a request to have the soybean soup he had before his arrest. In the same way the reporter tried to uncover the meaning of “Rosebud” in Citizen Kane, a broadcast producer starts tracing the secret of the soup. Behind the captivating taste lies a woman’s unfortunate life and love story.
It has been twelve years since Lee Seogoon made his last film, Rub Love, and here the director wonderfully mixes two different genres-the thriller and the love story. The English title, “The Recipe” contains a lot of meaning: a record of a person’s life, a memory of taste, an experience of loss and a chronicle of hurts. In this sense, the film is a recipe for everything. With his original touch, Lee illustrates the obsession with unforgettable memories of love and a fatalistic point of view. The soybean soup recipe contains pain, longing and salvation. In a sense, the recipe is the very history of Korea’s memory and tradition. (LEE Sang-yong) (hancinema)

    Our Happy Ending sounds mighty weird…I mean a 20yrs old guy falling in love with a 40 yrs old is already a little scandal but loving that guy's mum on top of that is…making me speechless. Wonder how the movie's gonna make us believe in its characters…

    And…Soybean soup sounds and looks great! Ok I am biased towards Ryu but I also love stories with food as a central motive, especially if as a metapher for those abstract concepts you mentioned.

    Well, I have no problem believing in the situation, nevertheless it's weird. 20 years of the age gap is a lot, but it happens. Still, packed in 80 minutes, this may be an intense tale.

    Hm, Ryu is great, after seeing him in this trailer and the cut from I Love Movies (recently here, forgot where though), I trust this will be a great movie. He's this kind of actor that no matter of the plot, he's doing a great job.
