Cast & Credits
The movie is about the life of inmates who are inspired to show their talents to other people outside the jail.
I was carried away by the great acting of the actresses especially the main ones, Kim YunJin of Lost, and Na Moon Hee of Padam Padam. The drama of this movie works because it builds emotion right up until the end and it shows how prejudice people are on inmates. I give this movie a perfect 10 because it is superb!!!
You don't understand how amazing this movie is. To people who have viewed others who went to jail with disgust or contempt. Young lady/man you better go and watch this. It will change your thoughts/feelings on this matter. The theme of this movie is not a light one. But the director made it work. A woman who is convicted of manslaughter for accidently killing her abusive husband. Gives birth in jail and chooses to raise her baby boy, Min Woo. But heres the catch, she can only keep him for 18 months. Then afterwards he is sent to adoption. Seriously she made the right choice. You should see the baby boy (absolutely gorgeous), his always smiling and filled with life. There's also the inmates, each with their own story to tell.
The acting was perfection. Whoever played the role for baby Min Woo is the best! I'm a sucker for babies!
Kim Yoon Jin is such an azmazing actress. Her betrayal of Jeong Hye is flawless. I could not imagine someone else even playing the role. She's a woman who loves her baby boy above everything and anything. I love her.
Na Moon Hee, Lee Da Hee, Kang Ye Won, Jung Soo Young, Park Jun Myun are all very commendable actresses. There are others as well but their the main ones. Everyone had this atmosphere, where they feed of each others energy. It was amazing!
*tears* When they all sang together, I felt like angels were singing. Especially the ending songs, I couldn't stop crying. Music is a very important part of this film.
You must be all wondering why on earth I haven't given a 10 for this. There is only one reason, I don't want to have another cry fest.
10/10. What is there more to say. Except GO AND WATCH IT NOW!
