Quotes Lee Seo-Ha: Ahreum? When do you feel alive? When do you feel like you want to keep living?
Ah-reum: When do I want to live? When I see fleecy clouds in the blue sky... When I hear kids' laughters, I want to live. On a clear day, when I smell sun-dried laundry with my mom... When I see the gruff shopkeeper cry like a girl while watching soap opera... When I hear a granny calling out to her grand kids for dinner... When mom splashes cold water on dad's back in the summer... When I see Venus moments after sunset with my dad... When I see blinking lights of airplanes on their night flight, I want to live. Suh-ha, what about you?
