Review

It has long been rumored that the restaurants featured on television as having great food paid to be on TV. The True-taste Show is a documentary that proves those rumors to be true. The film criticizes the immoral cases of restaurants that pay millions or even tens of millions of won to ‘buy a slot’ on a TV program in order to attract customers. The film does not hesitate at all in exposing the system where money changes hands among restaurants, broadcasting stations, sponsoring agencies, outsourced producers, and brokers. It criticizes such restaurants featured on programs introducing so-called delicious restaurants in the same way as a TV documentary. This format makes the film light and interesting. By using the TV documentary style of decorating a story in the most dramatic way to expose the TV documentaries themselves leaves no room to get bored and is at the same time critical to the point of being quite sarcastic. The film explains that the main reason for this phenomenon is the way viewers watch such programs. Because of people who are gluttons, not gourmets, flocking to a restaurant just because it was featured on TV are causing this to happen, the film asks that the audience who watch the film make the right choice. Anyone who has seen this film will realize how much programs introducing restaurants rumored to be delicious are shaped by illusion. (Kim Lee Hwan)
