Kim Go Eun offers the audience a memorable performance in family drama, Canola which should be on your must-watch list this weekend!
An old grandmother and her young granddaughter live a simple life in a small village on an island. The aging community-driven grandmother makes a living as a diver for her only remaining relative, her curiously adorable granddaughter. One day, whilst the two are shopping at a busy market, the young granddaughter Hye-Ji, disappears amongst the crowd and her distressed grandmother frantically, and hopelessly, searches for her. Twelve years later, Hye-Ji is now a beaten down teenager surviving the hard streets of Seoul with a record for stealing and petty crimes.
The story comes together when Hye-Ji notices her own picture on a carton of milk and reports herself as missing, her grandmother is ecstatic to hear she’s alive and well and the two return to the village. Hye-Ji’s life is thrown upside down as she struggles to adjust back to life with her grandmother, who still acts as though Hye-Ji is a child and mollycoddles her to no end. Back to some sort of normality, Hye-Ji enrolls at the local high school and discovers a passion for art. No melodrama would be complete without a love interest and Hye-Ji finds herself being pined for by an affluent student. Her history and background appears a little sketchy and her burdens begin to weigh down heavily as she tries to adjust to a normal way of living.
