Young Hye-won’s life in a big city isn’t going as planned – no job, no romance, bad grades. Impulsively, she returns to her rural hometown. As seasons pass, Hye-won slowly finds pleasure in living a simple life. A new spring is approaching, and she puts the first step in her brand new life.
Director Yim Soon-rye has been recognized by critics and viewers for her gentle but powerful directing in films such as Waikiki Brothers, Forever the Moment, South Bound and The Whistleblower. After 4 year of producing films such as One Way Trip and Sorry, Thank You, Yim makes her directorial return with Little Forest.
Enticing recipes invite your appetite and offer a glimpse into the the slow-paced life Hye-won returns to. The time required to grow seasonal ingredients for home cooked meals in Hye-won’s hometown stand in contrast to the hurried pace of fast food in the big city. Each meal reveals its story, just as each character carries a story of their own”
