Her professional skills of pretense and deceit easily got Young-ju out on parole. On a train to attend her sister’s wedding, she runs into Hee-chul, a man in love with a girl he is just about to propose to. By some bad? or perhaps good? luck Young-ju and Hee-chul run into each other and she mistakes Hee-chul as a bum trying to molest her. Their first chance encounter turns out quite embarrassing. On top of that a pickpocket steals Hee-chul’s engagement ring! Young-ju is worried that she might be accused of the theft, so she sets out to bring him back the ring. Amidst the hassle, she is left behind on the platform. The train has left, carrying away her own luggage. And all that she has with her is the ring.
What she needs is her luggage back. What she doesn’t need is to be accused of theft. Young-ju finds her way to Hee-chul’s home and the family seeing the ring thinks she is Hee-chul’s fiancee! To wiggle herself out of the situation without adding another crime onto her record, she uses the skills of her profession and cons everyone into believing indeed she is the one.
Meanwhile, our poor Hee-chul returns home without proposing to his girl for lack of the ring, and finds that his family, in fact the whole town now blame him for deserting an innocent woman. Surprise! Surprise!
Now the bout is on between deceit and truth. Conwoman-turned-fiancee of the town’s pharmacist vs. the pharmacist framed for rejecting a faithful woman.

Based on the novel by screenwriter Noh Hee-kyeong and the 1996 drama “The Last Blossom,” this film tells the moving story of an ambitious yet family-oriented woman who has to say goodbye to her family.

The people in In-hee’s (Bae Chong-ok) life have always taken her for granted. There’s her husband, Jeong-chol (Kim Kap-soo), a doctor who always prioritized his career over family life, her daughter Yeon-soo (Park Ha-seon) and son Jeong-soo (Ryoo Deok-hwan), both of whom have become increasingly harsh towards their mother. And then there’s Jeong-chol’s mother (Kim Ji-yeong), who has Alzheimer’s disease. But when they all learn that In-hee, who they thought would always be there for them, has been diagnosed with a terminal illness and doesn’t have much time left to live, they come together for the first time to give her the support they’ve always denied her.

Directed by Min Gyoo-dong, who is known for his work on “My Lovely Week” (2005) – which received the Jury Special Prize at the 13th Icheon Chunsa Film Festival – “The Last Blossom” has received rave reviews from moviegoers and critics for its delicate depiction of family love.

When the television drama series version hit the airwaves in 1996, it instantly became a sensation for its stars’ meaty performances.
