The Recipe (된장)

된장 (Doin-jang)

Directed by Lee Seo-goon (이서군)

Screenplay by

Melodrama Mystery Romance

107min | Release date in South Korea :

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)

  • Korean Movies Coming to International Film Festival

    2011/02/03, Source,
    By Mark Russell The full Academy Awards nominations have been announced, and while it was disappointing that Korea wasn't included in the Best Foreign Language film category (or, indeed, in any category), I'm sure we'll be seeing a Korean film or two in the nominations in future years. Much more interesting to me is the resurgence that Korean movies are having at international film festivals. Festivals, especially the top ones like Berlin, Cannes, and Venice, give you a much better idea about international trends and hot topics, where reputations are built, laying the groundwork for more mainstream success,...More
