I haven’t updated in ages!!! It’s been bananas packing up and moving home ><

Alrite enough with the excuses.

This one’s for PT and the guys!

Han Chae Young models for the menswear brand Rogatis. I agree, it’s a little weird for a girl to be carrying a brand that only dresses men, but she pulls it off quite well. ^^

[Review] Antique Movie

Posted in Film, Korean by Jae on March 15, 2009

Before I even start my review, I have to get this off my chest:

This film is a MUST WATCH.


When I first saw the trailer for this movie, I thought to myself: JOO JI HOON + CAKE. What more would I need?


I wanted to watch the movie for all the sexual innuendo and pretty boys but it delivered much more than that. In all honesty, I think the trailer for this film is slightly misleading; it gives an impression that this film was focused on gay romance and pretty boys (with the obvious intent to draw in the fangirl masses), but the movie actually has much more depth than that.


The movie starts off with what appears to be a light-hearted movie focused on fluffy cakes and beautiful men but the movie raises the question: Can anyone be unhappy while eating cake? Throughout the movie, you learn about how the four characters are inextricably linked to cake through various unexpected experiences.


Joo Ji Hoon (♥) plays the owner of the bakery called Antique but he hates the taste of cake. During the beginning of the movie, he leaves his employees and audience confused as to why he is so determined in running a cake shop. But I assure you, his reason is worth waiting for.


The cinematography and directing of the movie is exceptional. I think the script was done very well; there was never a shortage of hilarious scenes. And I think the juxtaposition of comedy and darkness of the plot is what makes this film particularly striking to me.

Rating: ★★★★★

I request that commenters refrain from posting spoilers. TIA. ^^

P.S. I watched this with my friend Krishna, check his site out here.
