  • Review

    Song Gil-han dramatizes the personal tragedy from division, separation, and ideology through Gilsotteum. Hwayoung was raised in a beautiful town called Gilsotteum. One day, Hwayoung watches a TV show searching for separated families and finds her lover Dongjin who was parted by war. While Hwa-young reminiscences the past, she comes across with a man who is assumed to be her son Seongun. After being reunited with Dongjin, they travel to Chuncheon to meet this man. He seems worn out by life and has no love for one’s family. Despite the DNA test, everything just feels foreign. Gilsotteum shows how deep emotions gradually change into insensibility. Hwa-young cannot accept the fact of being reunited with Dongjin and her possible son. This film gives great insight into the melodramatic reality in the perspective of a suffering soul.
