Impending death is often the impetus for romance in Korean films, but Maundy Thursday is a bit different from the rest. Based on Kong Ji Young's famous novel, Maundy Thursday is both a tender love story and a sensitive look at the capital punishment system. The title refers to Holy Thursday, or the feast day before Easter commemorating the Last Supper, and the film makes use of the stolen time between uncertain life and certain death to present an unlikely romance about a suicidal young woman and a death row prisoner. Director Song Hae Sung (Failan) and actors Kang Dong Won (Duelist) and Lee Na Young (Who are You?) paint a delicate portrait with compelling characters, subtle political undertones, and commentary on the value of life.
University lecturer Yu Jung (Lee Na Young) does not trust her surroundings and does not believe in love. Troubled by a traumatic past, she has attempted suicide many times. At her aunt's urging, she reluctantly enters therapy and meets convicted murderer and death row prisoner Yun Su (Kang Dong Won). Drawn to each other, two people with no will to live find a new motivation for life: a meeting every Thursday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
