PIFF - [Opening Film] Trace of Love

2006/10/11 Source

Directed by Kim Dae-seung

Starring Yoo Ji-tae, Kim Ji-soo, Uhm Ji-won

This melodrama is based on the true story of a 1995 disaster in Seoul _ the collapse of Sampung Department Store, which claimed more than 500 lives.

It portrays a man who suffers from the loss of his girlfriend in the tragic accident and struggles to deal with the painful memory.

In the film, Hyun-woo (Yoo Ji-tae) passes a juridical examination and proposes to his lover Min-joo (Kim Ji-soo). But their love meets a tragic end when she dies in the department store collapse.

Ten years have passed, and he is now a successful prosecutor, but he still suffers from the loss.

One day, he is suspended from office due to poor management of a case, and sets out on a journey alone to refresh himself. On his journey, he encounters a woman (Uhm Ji-won) who helps soothe his pain.

Due to high expectations about the film, the tickets for the opening show were sold out two minutes and 45 seconds after ticketing began on Sept. 19.

This expectation results from the director's previous successes including last year's hit thriller "Blood Rain" and the 2000 gay-themed melodrama "Bungee jumping of their own", and the performances the main actors have given in other films.

Kim tells a love story that stems from the tragic accident, against a background featuring the country's rivers, fields and mountains in the fall.
