Excellent Drama for true love
10 September 2012 | by m-afrodithSee all my reviews

OK, it is easy to guess the story but I must admit that it is very good directed. The actors are terrific in performance and appearance. Ji-Sub So is very handsome (his face is one of the prettiest Korean faces I have ever seen combining good looking with deep voice and attractive sportive image) and his acting is pretty good, specifically at the end. Jeong-hwa is the sweetest girl I have ever seen in Korean movies and her performance is excellent as well. I thinks she has a big future as an actress. The directions is very touching and manages to describe the depth of the characters. I am a 33-year-old-cynic female pig but I cried because of the movie.
