KISSING COUSIN (사돈의 팔촌)
Instantly close as children, cousins Tae-ik and Ah-ri go twelve years without seeing each other. Reunited when Tae-ik comes home on leave from military service, the two must navigate their reawakened feelings as adults who had only known each other as children.
Occasionally intense but never salacious, KISSING COUSIN captures feelings that should be familiar to anyone with an extended family—from the manic energy of large family gatherings to the sense of closeness that returns, almost immediately, even after long separations.
