i was so deeply moved and touched by this wonderfully crafted korean movie. i used to love the action packed suspenseful thriller movies, but sometimes, when a rarely find wonderful romantic movie could also melt my stubborn old heart deeply trembled with the ultimate soft feeling of a human being. what i'd like to point out here is that the koreans actually are the most romantic race in the world, it's so contradict to what they usually showed to other people. the formulaic korean national characteristics being cruelly portrayed are obnoxious, stubborn, arrogant, impolite, impatient and sometimes, very illogically unreasonable. but these are actually wrong, because deep down in most korean hearts, they are just so helplessly romantic, otherwise, they won't be able to produce so many wonderful break-your-heart tear-jerking romance dramas in both TV and movies and, if they are good, they are not just commonly good, they are crazily fantastic! i think this special korean tenderness also subtly showed in their beautiful electronic and vehicle products.
this movie, again, is a perfect 10. you should get rid of what you've already become and watch this movie with the tenderness that still not die in your heart. and i sincerely believe that after watching this movie, you would feel better and become a nicer person, temporarily, of course.
