This was a predictable but extremely heartfelt movie that really stress the importance of family. Nothing will surprise you in this gem of a family film but it cleverly tugs on just the right heartstrings to keep you watching to the very end. It was so refreshing to see a well-written, well acted movie that tells an amazing story without ever relying on gratuitous violence or sexuality. Also, the stories that unfold read more around a culture's most prized dish are wonderful and it really makes you realize that to many people, food is the language of love. It's one of those rare films that the whole family can enjoy and despite it's two hour running length the time will fly by.

Well compared to part one, this was a fast paced movie. There is no jealousy and animosity like part one because this was just btwn siblings. Its all about kimchi and I was interested. I dint know how wide a variety of kimchi there was. I like kimchi and av tasted prob 4 different types but this had as many as 20 to 30 different types. Good movie but must see part one first.
