A film where I had empathy for the characters, especially the main character. So I decided to check this movie out because it has Ahn Sung-ki in it. Who is a Korean actor that I respect and think of as a great actor. I personally think he is like the Denzel Washington of Korean actors. So the plot is about Oh Sang-moo (Ahn Sung-ki) who is in his 50's and is the marketing executive at a major cosmetics company. He is dealing with company issues and looks after his dying wife. While getting no support from his family. He soon falls for a way younger and beautiful woman working in the marketing team. So Oh Sang-moo is caught in a dilemma. I gotta admit I did feel for the character and had sympathy for the guy. Maybe because in today's society the guy is a saint. Men with integrity is very few these days. So yeah I had sympathy for the guy, maybe it's because I saw this movie after seeing "Zipper". This is a film that doesn't depend on the budget, but focuses in on the humanistic side of things. And one of the message of how empathy is important instead of just focusing on what you think is going on. Cause when it comes down to it, everyone wants to be understood. It's difficult to have sympathy for a man that is wealthy despite his wife dying, but this film did a good job of building sympathy. Yeah, it's a depressing film but unlike some depressing movies, I actually felt this one cause I understood. I mean I didn't go through what the lead character went through yet, but I understood.
