Trailer for Antique, which screened at the 2009 Hawaii International Film Festival.
Director Min Gyoo-dong follows a recipe consisting of one part quirky comedy, one part suspenseful mystery, and a sprinkling of imaginative musical numbers, to create a visually delicious adaptation of the bestselling Japanese manga, Antique Bakery. Previously a TV drama and anime in Japan, this Korean interpretation stars heartthrob Joo Ji-hoon as the pampered and overprotected Jin-hyuk, who curiously opens a small neighborhood cake shop named Antique despite his violent dislike of desserts. The success of the shop depends in large part on Sun-woo (Kim Jae-wook), a charismatic genius pastry chef who once had an unrequited crush on Jin-hyuk in high school. Their efforts are helped by an ex-boxer apprentice with a passion for pastry and Jin-hyuk's silent and bumbling childhood friend who fancies himself a bodyguard and assistant. This unlikely four-man operation tirelessly strives for sweet success in the face of bitter personal challenges.
