Teaser trailer released for the upcoming Korean movie "Blossom"
Directed by Kim Jin-do
With Shim Hee-sub, Go Won-hee,...
In a tranquil countryside hospital, radiologic technician Yeon-woo suffers from a mental disorder, the result of a childhood trauma in which he witnessed his younger brother die in a car accident. Won-hee, the hospital's newest nurse, shows an interest in Yeon-woo, but he doesn't appreciate her advances-he doesn't even get along with hospital colleagues he's known for years. Through a few chance encounters, they gradually grow closer and he opens up his heart to her. However, Won-hee has a secret that she hasn't told Yeon-woo, and it appears that their love will never be. This debut film from director Kim Jin-do is reminiscent of "Christmas in August" (1998), especially the serene attitude toward death and the meditative images of both the film's characters and its setting. The way in which Yeon-woo and Won-hee's families are presented also emphasizes the desolate atmosphere in the film. The familiar face of actor Shim Hee-sub from "The Sunshine Boys" (2012) and "The Attorney" (2013) and the fresh charm of Go Won-hee, who starred in "The Silenced" (2015), are a welcome pleasure.
