Broker (Korean: 브로커) is a 2022 South Korean drama film written and directed by Japanese filmmaker Hirokazu Kore-eda, and starring Song Kang-ho, Gang Dong-won, Bae Doona, Lee Ji-eun, and Lee Joo-young.
I had a chance to speak with Kang-ho, who won the best actor at the Cannes Film Festival this year, and engage in a conversation about the cultural and society difference with Japanese filmmaker Hirokazu Kore-eda.
Film Synopsis : Ha Sang-hyeon is the owner of a hand laundry and volunteers at the nearby church, where his friend Dong-soo works. The two run an illegal business together: Sang-hyeon occasionally steals babies from the church’s baby box with Dong-soo, who deletes the church’s surveillance footage that shows a baby was left there. They sell the babies on the adoption black market. But when a young mother So-young comes back after having abandoned her baby, she discovers them and decides to go with them on a road trip to interview the baby’s potential parents. Meanwhile, two detectives, Soo-jin and Lee, are on their trail.
