This movie is so underrated. I’ve seen many reviews about this movie, but most of them are saying that this movie gets boring in the middle, trust me, it’s NOT. I stumbled upon this movie while scrolling to channels and this was played in tvN movies. Unfortunately I missed the first 10-15 minutes of this movie, but from that point till the end, it doesn’t disappoint at all.

The casts portrayed their characters excellently, and the story wasn’t cliche either. This movie shows how family isn’t always blood, but whom you find love in. This movie was light but also heartwarming, it made you smile but will also make you cry some parts near the ending. It’s beautiful how the writers can sum up this whole storyline and make a great happy ending.

Overall, a 9/10. A great family-movie to accompany you on this quarantine season! ⭐️

A father is forever a father, but a mother saves the day

"Chronicle of a Blood Merchant" is really a good movie, it tells a story of an ordinary man, Heo Sam Gwan, that wants to marry the most beautiful woman, Heo Ok Ran, in the village. However, eleven years after they get married and have three sons, the rumor starts that he is not the father of his first born son, The heartbreaking story begins after it is confirmed that his first born son, Heo Il Rak, has a different blood type than his blood type. Heo Sam Gwan becomes enraged and ignores Il Rak and wants Il Rak to call him "Ajeossi" instead of "Abeoji". I do not want to tell the story, but all characters in the movie act and perform so well to deliver this heartwarming story. The young Nam Da Reum that portrays Heo Il Rak, interprets his character so well with Il Rak's quiet demeanor, and accepting the cold treatment from Sam Gwan. As usual Ha Ji Won that portrays Ok Ran and Ha Jung Woo that portrays Sam Gwan tell the story and take care of the loose ends beautifully. I would recommend "Chronicle of a Blood Merchant" without any hesitation.
