Storyline

Post-war South Korea in 1953, Heo Sam-Gwan (Ha Jung-Woo) works on a construction site and helps his uncle to farm. The guys in his village can't get married, until they are able to sell their own blood. By selling their blood, they prove they are in healthy condition and are able to make a lot of money. One day, Heo Sam-Gwan sees Heo Ok-Ran (Ha Ji-Won). She's the most beautiful woman in the village, but she is already dating wealthy playboy Ha So-Yong. Heo Sam-Gwan decides that he will marry Heo Ok-Ran. He sells his blood and makes enough money to marry her. 11 years later, Heo Sam-Gwan and Heo Ok-Ran are happily married and have three sons, but a rumor spreads around the village that Heo Sam-Gwan isn't the real father of their eldest son.

Goofs

In one scene before donating blood 3 guys are seen drawing water from a stream with something that looked like a very modern tetra pack with its top cut off. Similar to what we get our milk and juice in. As the film starts in 1953 they cannot possibly had such a thing in Korea. Such a plastic coated pack was just invented and didn't resemble what they were using. Its highly unlikely that those guys would have access to such a sophisticated package. See more »

Sensational is the least to say about it.
14 April 2018 | by See all my reviews

My goodness how much i was moved by the story,, I'm not sure of it was based on a somewhat true events after the Korean war, but i'd say it is probable , i mean now a days we hear of people selling their organs out of poverty .

The script was well written ,, the comedy part was witty and light while injected into a strong emotional drama ,, even though the movie was about two hours , the events felt like skipping so fast and at some point with high level of tension till we reached the end where i was really about to tear up.

The cast was well picked,, before this i watched Jung-woo Ha in Along with the Gods: The Two Worlds which was produced two years after this :D but anyway ,, he was amazing, which what encouraged me find this movie in the first place and watch it.

Final thought ,, It's highly recommended ,, and don't be scared , it won't point out any historical slow boring events whatsoever ,, so watch it now ;)
