Rolling Home with a Bull (소와 함께 여행하는 법)

소와 함께 여행하는 법 (So-wa Ham-gge Ye-haeng-ha-neun Beom)

Directed by Lim Soon-rye (임순례)


106min | Release date in South Korea :

Formerly known as "How to Travel with a Cow"
A bachelor poet lives in a remote area of Kang-won province. He goes to sell a cow but the price is too low. He gets a call from his former lover, who married his friend seven years ago. His friend has died, and she asks him to come to the funeral. He goes to the funeral with the cow. The man, the girl, and the cow leave on a journey.

Production note

The film is based on the original novel by Korean author Kim Doyeon. Despite his fatherís objections, an old bachelor and poet takes his cow to a cattle market. He fails to sell his cow and starts a journey to visit cattle markets across the country. On the road, he hears the news of a friendís death. His dead friend and the dead manís widow used to be his best friends. So he and his cow continue their journey with the widow.
The cow, which is a vital Buddhist symbol, represents a life of seeking the truth. In the film, the cow embodies friend, wife, karma, and even an image of Buddha. As life has its ups and downs, the main character is locked up at a police station overnight after his father reports him as a thief. The journey with a cow illustrates a life in search of the truth, and director Lim succeeded in describing an attractive life in her relaxed touch. (LEE Sang-yong)

    Actress Kong Hyo-jin plays female protagonist Lee Hee Jin in the movie entitled "Love Fiction". Kong Hyo-jin is not an extremely beautiful actress. She has a tall height, slender body, and small and cute face, which are definitely merits for an actress, but she approaches the public with a completely different strategy. She presented pure and intense emotion in the movie "Crush and Blush" (2006) and the psychology of a straightforward woman with an understated personality in the movie "Rolling Home with a Bull" (2010). Kong Hyo-jin received huge popularity with the drama "The Greatest Love" last year, and she has made a comeback to movies after a two year-break with her appearance with actor Ha Jeong-woo in "Love Fiction", which was directed by Jeon Gye-soo. Kong Hyo-jin will play a provocative woman named Hee Jin who works in a movie production company. She will fall in love with an unknown novelist named Joo Wol (Ha Jeong-woo) in the movie,...More
