A late 70's forbidden love story set in Japan
4 October 2008 | by See all my reviews

It's a forbidden love story about two athletes, one from Japan, Shimonoseki (Ikuko), and other from Korea, Busan (Ahn), who meet on athletic camp in summer of 1977. They share a Romeo & Juliet moment on a balcony, make a promise that they will see each other next year at Tabanata and then continue writing letters to each other throughout the year. But many obstacles come in their way, because both of their parents and friends are reluctant about their relationship, since the historical tension between Koreans and Japanese. And also, Ahn wants to go to college, and needs to quit the track, but he tries hard anyway just to fulfill the promise to meet with Ikuko next year ...

The movie is full of fun teenage views on relationship, and growing up between four girls, one of them being Ikuko, and the other three her colleagues from the track.

It's a really fun movie to watch, and the love story, though it sounds like a cliché, is neatly done and you easily get attached to it.

This could be one of the most romantic movies I've ever seen ! I recommend everyone to watch it.
