Comments on the content of the movie A Model Family
Money brings many things
As the owner of a difficult family because his son needed money for a heart transplant, Park Dong Ha couldn’t help thinking when he found a bag of money. The figure of a father who truly loved his child had temporarily turned into a heartless person.
Dong Ha takes the money and accidentally gets into a life-threatening situation. Starting from the premise related to the fragility of a father, A Model Family (2022) moves from the beginning without being lengthy although the plot itself seems slow at some points, especially after when Dong Ha became an accomplice of Kwang Chul.
The deeper the story goes, the series turns out to not only revolve around the life of Dong Ha. There are other attractions served, which make the plot more intense and emotional. There’s a sub-conflict that’s not really new, but it’s neatly enforced.
Korean series with a little western feel
Watch A Model Family (2022) with each episode running for about 45 minutes, so it’s an experience that’s not only intense but also unique. The reason is, this series has a bit of a Western nuance, especially when it comes to the background music used.
Typical country music played in many key scenes will amplify any emotions conveyed.
In terms of the story itself, A Model Family (2022) seems to fully meet the general elements of a neo-western film or series. You can see the rebel protagonist and anti-hero in the character Dong Ha.
As a loving father to his family, he also does rash acts that inadvertently threaten the safety of his own family.
Action thriller with emotion
As a series from Korea, Kim Jin Woo as the director of A Model Family (2022) did not miss to spice up the dramas related to emotions. This 10-episode action-horror series not only leaves you tense and in pain because of its brutal, gory scenes, but it’s also painful.
Although the dramatic element is not too thick, A Model Family (2022) is quite emotional. Dong Ha’s burden of being the head of the family is meaningless in his wife’s eyes, which he has to carry while carrying out risky jobs. Besides Dong Ha, there is also Kwang Chul, who despite his cold and hurt appearance, he still honors his promise.
A Model Family (2022) is an action-packed spectacle with beautiful cinematography and a solid story, not to be missed. While it would have been nice to shorten it to a few episodes, that didn’t detract from the story’s appeal.
