Full review by Valerie Soe: https://beyondasiaphilia.com/2017/02/19/pulling-mussels-from-a-shell-cook-up-a-storm-movie-review/


Yonghwa's part:


"The showdowns between Sky and Paul are likewise quite rapid, with the most effective one taking place in Paul’s gorgeously appointed high-tech restaurant kitchen. Here the characters are allowed to play off of each other a bit more and the scenario has a chance to breathe a bit, unlike some of the rapid-fire sequences that take place elsewhere in the film. It helps that Nic Tse and Yonghwa have a good onscreen rapport, with Yonghwa in particular doing a great job fleshing out his character with a minimum of dialog."


"Yonghwa also acquits himself well in the cooking sequences since he looks like he knows his way around all of the high-tech gear that Paul uses. I especially enjoyed watching Paul create a fancy foie gras dish that illuminated the process as well as the product. At one point Paul adds a bit of sorbet onto the top of a dish and we see him warming the spoon slightly in order to get the frozen scoop to release cleanly, a small detail that nonetheless adds an interesting touch of realism to the proceedings."


"Nic Tse wears the same grimy plaid shirt and greasy bandana through most of the film, telegraphing Sky’s realness and street cred. In contrast, Yonghwa’s flawless face and impeccable chef’s uniform add to the impression of the all-around slickness of Stellar. Yonghwa is confident and believable as a high-end chef in a fancy upscale restaurant–he knows he’s good and he’s not afraid to show it. As the leader of CNBLUE Yonghwa has a lot of swagger and he brings that swag to his portrayal of Paul, though not so much that he becomes obnoxious or overbearing. More significantly, as Paul gradually comes to appreciate the joys of Sky’s simpler cooking aesthetic, Yonghwa communicates this transformation through subtle facial expressions and physical gestures. Even though Yonghwa speaks no Chinese he succeeds in imparting Paul’s intentions non-verbally, effectively playing off of his co-stars despite the language barrier."

    Yong Hwa's acting has always been subtle, conveying his feelings in small gestures instead of OTT acting which I really appreciate. How I wish there was more scenes of him and Miyu, I believe there would be another level of acting from him.

    I never find his acting stiff which some others expressed in his YAB & heartstring drama. YH portrayed that character as it was intended to be (which is quite opposite to his true personality BTW) I watched his face and the fine subtleties of his expressions which is just the right amount and not OTT which is how I like it too. So is his acting in this movie. He is as poise as a any 3 Michelin star would look like. For his young age he pulled that quite easily .
