The movie “Broker” will appear in theaters in June.
“Broker” (directed by Hirokazu Kore-eda) revolves around characters associated with baby boxes, which allow infants to be dropped off anonymously to be cared for by others.
The teaser poster, which was released along with the confirmation of the film’s release in June, draws attention by capturing the conflicting moments of those who go on an unexpected journey around a baby under the clear sky.
Sang-hyeon (Song Kang-ho), a self-proclaimed well-intentioned broker, and his partner Dong-soo (Kang Dong-won) want to make a special deal in search of new parents for the baby in the baby box. The poster, which features those who smile brightly while looking at each other, heralds warm chemistry. At the same time, it raises expectations for a deeper ensemble of Song Kang-ho and Kang Dong-won, who reunited 12 years after the movie “Secret Reunion”.
On the other hand, the baby’s mother So-young (Lee Ji-eun, IU), who unexpectedly joins the journey, stares out the window with a serious face, amplifying curiosity about the special story between those who encounter through the baby box.
“Broker” is the first Korean film directed by Japanese master Hirokazu Kore-eda and attracted high attention early on. He portrayed the lives of marginalized and unprotected characters in society in every work, including “Shoplifters”, which won Palme d’Or at the 71st Cannes International Film Festival (2018).
From Sang-hyeon (Song Kang-ho), a self-proclaimed well-intentioned broker who tries to find the right person to raise the baby, Sang-hyeon’s partner Dong soo (Kang Dong-won), Soo-jin (Bae Doo-na), a detective who relentlessly pursues the broker’s journey, So-young (Lee Ji-eun), who you cannot understand why she left her baby in the baby box and why she came back, to Detective Lee (Lee Joo-young), a junior detective who pursues the broker with Soo-jin. The new faces and synergy that Korea’s representative actors across generations will show are raising curiosity to the climax.
The movie “Broker”, which announced the start of a special journey by releasing a teaser poster with such a bright atmosphere, is expected to move the audience’s hearts with delicate and warm emotions in June.
