“I sat down to watch the 2015 South Korean movie u0026quot;Go-yang-i jang-rye-siku0026quot; (aka u0026quot;Cat Funeralu0026quot;) here in 2021, as I had the opportunity to watch this romantic drama from writer and director Jong-Hoon Lee.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eSure, I hadnu0026#39;t even heard about the movie before now in 2021, as I watched it, nor had I ever read the webtoon it apparently is based on. But it being an Asian movie that I hadnu0026#39;t already seen, was more than sufficient to make me want to watch it.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eAnd I will say that u0026quot;Cat Funeralu0026quot; turned out to be a nice movie. It was a storyline that was a bit slow paced and with little happening actually, so it might not be a movie that just easily appeals to just anyone. But I liked the storyline, because it really went into depths with the characters and their relationship.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eu0026quot;Cat Funeralu0026quot; has a great cast ensemble, though it was mostly just Kang In (playing Dong-Hoon) and Park Se-young (playing Jaa-hee) that were on the screen. And they did perform quite well. And it is always a treat to see Kang In starring in movies, because he is a good actor and rather talented.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eu0026quot;Cat Funeralu0026quot; could have benefitted from a bit more meat on the bone, so to speak. By that I mean that the storyline was a bit too thin stretched. If writer and director Jong-Hoon Lee had opted for a bit more up-speed pacing of the storyline and put in a bit more of excitement in the storyline, then u0026quot;Cat Funeralu0026quot; would have proven all the more entertaining and effective.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eAll in all then u0026quot;Cat Funeralu0026quot; turned out to be a slightly emotional movie, and it was something that I actually enjoyed. As such, then I am rating u0026quot;Cat Funeralu0026quot; a six out of ten stars.”
