A love story for all!
15 February 2012 | by ryanmarkdanteSee all my reviews

So here goes my very first ever Review in the entire world! I had to register to IMDb in order to express my emotion and share to All my profound feeling after having watched this film.

I have in the many years watched various Korean movies and TV series from Swordplay, Action & Drama. When I came across this film, I did not know what to expect or how this film would be. I just wanted to watch it, and at the end of the movie; I felt content, happy and invigorated.

For those of you who have not watched many Korean movies. Know this, they are a very passionate people, funny and even cute in their mannerism. Very different from your Hollywood or European movies. Please watch this movie with an open heart and let Chul-min and Junghwa take you on a journey of life through their eyes, through co-incidences, the affects the decisions we make. The trials we go through and the sacrifices we make in the name of love.

I hope my dear friend that after having watched this movie through the end, that like myself you find yourself thinking of someone who you would like to share this movie with. Then go forth and spread the love.
