Cast & Credits
Beom-goo played by Im Hyun Kook is a father facing difficulties at work. Mi-yeong played by Lee Hye Eun is a mother whose own work is the only support of the family, although relatively successful, has, unfortunately, a great degree of vicious evil. Han-na played by Chae Bin is her daughter, who is currently trying to get into a good college and stressing very severely about the prospect that she may once again live a year as "ronin".
The three central characters have distinct and interesting stories with surprisingly little direct overlap, although they contain important similarities. The main irony of the film is that family members do not communicate with each other, in part because society has convinced them that ultra-competitiveness is the way to go. Any failure in this arena justifies even reproach of loved ones.
"Come, Together" has as one of the premisses the issue of abuse of power or impotence, having as a very simple message about just trying to get serious elements of what is important in life and realizing that life experiences may not be really good If they make you feel like crap all the time. Another factor is that in the end we get a nice scene where Beom-goo, Mi-yeong and Han-na begin to act as a family for once. Highly recommended!
