The Last Blossom

The Last Blossom


Based on the novel by screenwriter Noh Hee-kyeong and the 1996 drama “The Last Blossom,” this film tells the moving story of an ambitious yet family-oriented woman who has to say goodbye to her family. The people in In-hee’s (Bae Chong-ok) life have always taken her for granted. There’s her husband, Jeong-chol (Kim Kap-soo), a doctor who always prioritized his career over family life, her daughter Yeon-soo (Park Ha-seon) and son Jeong-soo (Ryoo Deok-hwan), both of whom have become increasingly harsh towards their mother. And then there’s Jeong-chol’s mother (Kim Ji-yeong), who has Alzheimer’s disease. But when they all learn that In-hee, who they thought would always be there for them, has been diagnosed with a terminal illness and doesn’t have much time left to live, they come together for the first time to give her the support they’ve always denied her. Directed by Min Gyoo-dong, who is known for his work on “My Lovely Week” (2005) - which received the Jury Special Prize at the 13th Icheon Chunsa Film Festival - “The Last Blossom” has received rave reviews from moviegoers and critics for its delicate depiction of family love. When the television drama series version hit the airwaves in 1996, it instantly became a sensation for its stars’ meaty performances.
