This film's story fits right in with the Koreans' great love of cutsey
romance movies--which may turn off a lot of more jaded Western
its attention to detail is a great strength. All of the scenery and props
create a beautiful, believable portrait of Korea in the days shortly after
the Korean war. For anyone who's familiar with modern-day Korea, it's a
very interesting look back. Also, the original music on the soundtrack is
excellent and appropriate throughout the film.
