(서양골동양과자점 앤티크)

When life is bitter, eat cake.

A comedy based on a famous manga, ‘Antique Bakery’ by Fumi Yoshinaga.

Jin Hyeok, a rich heir opens a bakery after quitting his job and hires Seon Woo a talented patissier – the ‘gay of demonic charm’. A man who detests cakes set up a bakery with one goal in mind, pursue women by luring them in with pretty desserts.

On the surface, each character’s motives seem clear and simple. However, through an unexpected plot twist, the boys evolve and we learn of their secrets and backgrounds. Interestingly, the film morphs from a light and comedic film into undertones of murder and mystery.

The surprising turn of events keep you engaged from the impeccably presented cakes, to the suspenseful plot towards the end. Definitely more to the film than just pretty boys and pretty desserts. About love, hardship and dreams. This isn’t your everyday film, it’s different and its special. Worth a watch.

Running Time: 112 mins
