2020/03/28 | Permalink

The Way of St. James is a pilgrimage route through the Northern part of Spain.

This story is, unsurprisingly, not entirely truthful, but Ra Mi-ran is quite understated in her first contrast of the real Sang-sook with the fake one. Sang-sook is critical of some very weird, specific aspects in the advertisement, pretends to care about the opinions of her staff, but diplomatically makes her dictates seem like a team decision...More
