There are billions of couples and billions of marital relationships, but I cannot think of anyone more dedicated to one's partner than Jong-Yeon is. Though they always seem to have a quarrel (East-Asian often do opposite of their feelings because of shyness), we know that they love and trust each other deeply. They make us wonder how far we can trust our partner.
Also, It is interesting that this film harmonizes the antithetical contents:comedy and death. Frankly, it would be too sad if whole of the story was about love and death. The comical subplot is progressing parallel to the main plot, and it gradually untangles their past. Every subplots and flashbacks work very well and remind us that they are indispensable for each other.
Leading actors and music are splendid. I'm sure that this film lets us realize that the idea 'pure love stories are outdated' is completely wrong.
