Soonae who celebrates her birthday, an old man who opens a bakery to support his granddaughter, and Su-mi who hits the road with two guys. An omnibus of three people who once had shining youth.

  • Review

    There are three parts to The Way. In Soon-Ae’s day is busy, Soon-ae, who lives alone, eats with a service engineer who came to fix the electronics on her birthday. That was undeniably Sang-Bum’s first love portrays a friendship between Sangbum an old man who spent all his life supporting his family and a young female coordinator who came to help him open a new bakery. Su-Mi’s road is about Su-mi´s journey to kill herself after her son died in a car accident after visiting her.
    The characters are connected to one another. Sangbum and Soonae loved each other when they were young. Soonae and Su-mi are sisters. No matter how they are connected, they have to deal with loneliness alone. They strive to find a connection in their living space ?voluntarily or involuntarily?that they can coexist with. They are in desperate need of contact. The Way shows different ways of escaping solitude with outstanding performances from Kim Haeja, Song Jaeho, and Huh Jin.
