As the two grow closer, Dong-hyeon suddenly begins to lose his lifelong insensitivity to pain and the hurt of a lifetime washes over him. Written by Stanislav S, Sochi, Russia

Ready the tissues
20 November 2012 | by See all my reviews

With Kwon Sang-woo never failing to prove that he is indeed one of Korea's most brilliant dramatic actors, this movie will surely tear your heart apart. It started off as funny but prepare to be moved when the movie ends. Story is basically one of those deja vu movies, you've seen it all, its not new to your eyes..yet this movie will still cater to your emotional side.

The story starts with the lead character-a loan shark- engaging in a very unique way of earning money. Why isn't it a surprise that its in this type of business will his life change? Two lone souls meet each other in literally violent ways. Two persons whose lives are inflicted with some sort of burden finally find love in each other's arms. Easy to read, easy to predict, slightly unrealistic and unlikely to happen..yet sad to watch.

It was painfully sad—so double the sadness. Its got a powerful love scene too. Its a very touching selfless type of love story..something about real love and finally having a reason to live for. Don't expect to see the storyline being a first of its kind. But if you want something extremely sad, then this one's for you.
