'beautiful' movie
6 January 2010 | by mtlsyrSee all my reviews

This is a beautiful movie. The beautiful cinematography makes you desire to visit Korea. And the musics makes you want to know more about Korean music and culture.

These are all the decorations of this great movie.

The story of people and the love of them is so pure. They preserve their love even when they are apart and keep their love unchanged while the world changes.

This is a love story begins from childhood to the very end and the name of the film suit it perfectly.

Sit back, take a deep breath, and enjoy.
