Film Main Info
Based on award-winning Japanese manga and by the director of 'MEMENTO MORI'. To a family fortune, Jin-hyuk (Ju Ji-hun) has money, the looks, the charm, everything except finding the love of his life. So he sets up a fancy cake shop where women are sure to come. He hires Sun-woo (Kim Jae-wook), a talented and sought-after young pâtissier who had a crush on Jin-hyuk back in high school. Along with an ex-boxing champion Gi-beom and a clueless bodyguard Su-young, the four unique and handsome young men stir up the quiet neighbourhood at their cake shop, Antique. Although seemingly careless and happy, each of the four men have unforgettable pasts that they are afraid to face. But their secrets slowly begin to unravel.
