" The romantic thriller about a detective and murder suspect who become infatuated with one another features, contrary to the expectation of some, little violence or nudity. "When something is not in the film you say why isn't it there and the other way around," Park joked when asked at a Cannes press conference if the film marks a new direction for him. What is more important is having the determination and discipline to conquer setbacks, he said in the eighth and final episode of 阿顺有煮意 (Dishing with Chris Lee), which aired on Monday (23 May) night on Channel 8. "When I started preparing to make the movie, I wanted to make a film for adults. "My kids know that their father is not perfect at everything. Everyone said to me, 'Oh it's going to be a really erotic, sexy film,' and I thought, how odd that that is what people expect when I say I want to make a film for adults so I did the exact opposite. He has weaknesses too." Park Hae-il stars as police detective Hae-joon, who is investigating the death of an avid climber who fell from a mountain peak. In the video, a woman on the side of the victim's family, presumably the mother, began the offending family's parents.

Meeting the man’s wife, a mysterious woman of Chinese origin, Hae-joon suspicions grow when she shows no sign of shock over her loss... He starts observing her and over time the two develop feelings for one another. "There are lots of police stories but they are usually very rough, very violent and in this case the detective is very clean-cut and kind. Singapore actress and host Kym Ng was also a guest on the show. He doesn't use violence, or at least uses it as little as possible in order to solve all these mysteries,” said actor Park Hae-il. Former episodes typically featured guests from the entertainment scene, including actors Fann Wong – whom Lee is married to – Chen Hanwei, Rebecca Lim, Li Nanxing as well as singer JJ Lin. “Through my performance I wanted to portray a new kind of a cop," the actor said. In each episode, Lee whips up Teochew dishes for guests – most times with the help of his guests – and hosts them to lunch on Pulau Ubin as well as a childhood game or two. Police then searched the area for CCTV cameras and spoke to both families and their children, Kakading wrote on her TikTok video.

"Decision to Leave" is Park’s fourth film at Cannes, with 2004's"Old Boy" winning the festival’s Grand Prix and"Thirst" tying for the Jury Prize in 2009. It is one of 21 titles vying for the festival’s top honour, the Palme d’Or, this year. Chan revealed that he had learned to cook simple dishes in primary school as his parents had to go to work.
