Korean movies opening today 2021/03/18 in Korea: "A Distant Place", "FIGHTER" and "Asurado"

"A Distant Place" (2020)

Directed by Park Kun-young

With Kang Gil-woo, Hong Kyung, Lee Sang-hee, Ki Joo-bong, Ki Do-young, Choi Geum-soon,...

Synopsis
Jinwoo, who resides on a sheep ranch in Hwacheon, Gangwon-do, lives a quiet life with his daughter Seol. Ranch owner Joongman and his daughter Moonkyeong treat them as family. Soon after, Jinwoo's male friend Hyunmin arrives at the ranch, and reveals that the two have been long-time lovers. They dream of living happily with Seol in this peaceful place. However, with Jinwoo's twin sister Eunyoung's visit, the conflict begins. In fact, Seol is Eunyoung's daughter but Jinwoo has been raising her because Eunyoung disappeared. Like the close-up scene of the sheep wool in the beginning, A Far Place is a story that is not noticed from afar but revealed when looked closely. The local folks, who seemed friendly and gentle, show their true colors, and become exclusive and discriminatory as they learn about the truth of the two men. Even the intentions of family members, who thought they knew each other well, feel like 'a far place'. Like Jinwoo's mind, the beautiful autumn landscape of Gangwon-do turns into harsh winter, but the film believes there is still a ray of hope.
