Love is Really Conquer Everything
9 December 2012 | by deera deeraSee all my reviews

Can you imagine live without one of your sense? Lost sight? Lost hearing?

Meet Young-Chan. He is a man who can't see nor hear. For him world is a touch. He can only know things around him by touch. Luckily by his touch, he can read. Reading book is the only one activity he can do daily. Meet his wife, Soon-ho. She has abnormality on her backbone, which made her bone protrude, and her height is under average. So what? Love unite them. . How simple activity could be a struggle for both of them. One day they want to changed the lamp. This was need a great effort. As Soon-ho can see, but short. Yong-Chan is tall, but can not see. Soon-ho told Yong-Chan how the lamp's shaped. Based on her explanation, Yong- Chan touched the lamp entirely and estimated how it was, then take the new lamp to replaced it. By only with Song-Chan's guidance, touch, and intuition, he was successfully install the lamp! This scene was touching one, how they still managed to be independent on their 'blessed'.

How they communicate? Song-Chan would touch Young-Chan's hands in a 'special movement' while she talk a bit. And it worked. Up to know, i am still wondering, what technique did they use? They didn't loss laugh also. Yong-Chan asked by Korean actress to teach her about how to be the a blind and deaf person. They practiced, Yong-Chan coached the actress and comment : "you didn't seem as a blind-deaf person at all!" For Young-Chan, worlds has no light at all. He couldn't distinguished day and light. As Yong-Chan said : in my world, i have no light. I don't know what light is it like. But I believe, light always presence day and night, and it must be very beautiful. Yong-Chan also like to hold a tree. To feel it fully. Sea water also something strange to Young-Chan. He described as a cold water like in a fridge. Even he's afraid to touch it. But Young-Chan can manage to recognize people by his touch.

My first impression after wards was : i really have no idea if i have to live like Young-Chan, and how if I were become Song-Chan. Will I be as happy as them? I started to doubt about the love definition's which I have before. Because love is.....?
