In the countryside, at a Catholic Church, luxurious cars come rolling in. A wedding is set to take place between Ji Hong and Yu Ri. The couple met as music club members at their university. Their friends from their university days are all arriving, most of whom they haven't seen in 10 years. Seung Ho is now a lawyer and married. Hyeong Woo is now a university professor who is persistently single. Kyeong Ho is now a PD at a television station. Seong Ju is now a businesswoman who brought along her boyfriend 12 years her junior. Min Hee has a stable family. All of these friends are in the middle thirties. During the wedding, the friends notice that one person from their music club, Jeong Hee, is missing from the wedding. After the wedding, all the friends gather together at the vacation home operated by Ji Hong and Yu Ri. During the evening a young girl named Mi Rae appears at the vacation home. She informs the group that Yeong Hee was her mother and she died in a car accident one month ago. Furthermore, she tells everyone that she came here to meet her father. Tension, shock, and surprise then overtake the gathered friends as they recall their relationships with Yeong Hee. Edit Translation
Cast & Credits
Well Shin Seong Woo was a treat to watch. It was actually time I had ever seen him act. It was a treat.
Sadly I thought the script felt off. It takes the wild and energetic feel of the original story and tones it down. I think they were going for a sweet, dreamy, and contemplative feel. Which at times made the humor feel off. Especially when talking about the woman's escapades with men as her daughter comes to find out who her father is after her mother's death.
Yeah, different tone. At times I felt myself more bored than engaged in the story. The music wasn't quite what I had expected and visually it was just average. I felt like the writers weren't sure what kind of twist they wanted to put on their remake. For me, it was a miss. Though I feel like others might like the quality of it. It was interesting seeing a Korean remake this time around, so I'll give it that. (I've seen a lot of American remakes on Korean/foreign movies lately.)
