20 October 2012 | by VioletSakurachanSee all my reviews

I loved this movie, the months I was waiting to watch it were not wasted... Han Hyo-Joo confirmed one more time her acting talent and bringing tears to my eyes. If somebody asks me to tell them about this movie in two words, I'll say 'warm sun'... This movie gave so many warm feelings... Director's and cameraman's work is brilliant... The game of lights in this movie, in my opinion, is one of the main positive effects... Because of the light in the movie... everything is printed in the smallest details in my brain... the girls clothes... the guys hair... the sun in the room... the beautiful kiss... the family feeling with the dog... the massage...the drama watching time...their field full of the yellowest flowers...her, touching his face to 'see' him... (I can go on, until I've told the whole movie..thehe). Though the plot is not something brilliant and new for a Korean movie, actors and the crew makes the movie unforgettable, in my opinion.. Watch it, you won't regret!
