do you want to know 'the average Korean couple in recent days? this can give you an example.
28 November 2008 | by (Korea (Republic of)) – See all my reviews

As a 27 years old Korean female, i just love this film. Because through this film i could think about my people around me, and their love.

This film is quite 'quiet' film. There's no great action etc. But it has its own power. I want to call that 'normality' and the truth that you can find it through the time.

Personally i just love the actress, Moon So Ri. She is a great actress. And you can find out that while you're watching this film.

I think the main theme of this film is 2. One is Love and the other is time. These two topics are interacted to each other. Basically there are one woman and two men. So what can you imagine with this invaluable number? and one man apologies to one woman long after their affair broke. At that time a woman is pregnant with another man's baby. It means that a man's apology is too late for their recovery of their relationship. But it lasted with a woman's cheating. But later a woman realize that the cheating is not a appropriate one for both of them. So she just said "This is not a right thing to do. Sorry. I can't keep this." After that she just called to her present husband and said to him. "I just wanted to say this to you. I cheated on you for a while. I just wanted to say this." Later that night woman is sleeping and husband came back late. He checked the divorce paper and sighed. But after that she whispered to her husband "I am sorry. I am sorry..." This is the basic story line of this film.

i can tell you about the meaning of title. 'Sa Kwa' is Korean. Interestingly it has two different meanings. One is 'apple'. The other is 'apology'. Both are nouns. So when the male protagonist apologized to her ex girlfriend she took his apology. And she entered to one pharmacy and bought one pills and one apple. Not all pharmacies in South Korea, but some pharmacies in the countryside in South Korea, you can buy some fruits as well. She gave the apple to her ex boyfriend. As you can guess easily through those characters' actions they apologized to each other by words and by buying and giving apple. I like this director's cute idea.
