Kim Soo-hyun, Kim Joo-ryoung / Fiction / Korean

A moving study of love surviving through everyday adversity. Facing financial uncertainty and entering middle age, a married couple in their early thirties contemplate whether it’s the right time to have their first baby. Simple in its storytelling, sensitively portrayed and finely directed, this is the eagerly anticipated second feature by Jang Kun-jae, whose first film, Eighteen, won the Dragons & Tigers Award for Young Cinema at the Vancouver International Film Festival in 2009.
