When Lee Jin-woo rescued Su-eun from a fire, they both defied the odds in surviving. He fell in love with her older sister Soo-jeong Lim, who now desires the brave fireman to propose marriage thinking that this will make him less fearless in facing the flames and lessen her greatest fear. He wishes to do so, but his romantic streak causes him to seek the proper moment. Su-eun works as a "character" in an amusement park. Her face was scared in the fire, and she's also a deaf-mute. Feeling free to be more forward when in costume and under a large "Raggedy-Ann" head, she approaches a handsome artist who frequents the park to paint. He becomes infatuated with her despite never having seen her face or heard her voice, and she starts to fall in love with him. Choi Suk-hyun informs her boyfriend Jung Ha-seok that she wishes to break up for he is still unemployed after 3 years and she cannot face a future of poverty.

Busy with her career, Eom Jung-hwa neglects her young son Park Hwi-chan, and he becomes a problem at school. When she is hospitalized he becomes happier since he can visit her anytime and she has time to spend with him.

Fantastic movie experience...

Yes, I will admit it, I am a sucker for Asian movies, be it action, horror, dramas or comedy. And South Korea really do put out a lot of amazing movies in every genre, and "Sad Movie" (aka "Saedeu mubi") is one of those amazing movies.

At first I was a bit puzzled about the title of the movie. And my confusion was heightened as the first two-thirds of the movie were romantic comedy, and as far from sad as it could be. So I was wondering if director Jong-Kwan Kwon was just using "Sad Movie" as a sarcastic title for the movie.

But then as the last third of the movie started, everything just fell into place, and boy shall I say that the movie more than lived up to its title. And it is somewhat of a tear jerker.

The story follows several couples in their ups and downs in their relationships. And the story of the sick mother and the story with the artist and girl performing in a large costume really hit home with me. Those two stories went straight to my heart.

The cast in "Sad Movie" was amazing, a lot of really good talents on the cast ensemble. And they did really good jobs portraying their individual roles and characters under the skillful direction of Jong-Kwan Kwon.

"Sad Movie" is truly a beautiful and fantastic movie that you should take the time to watch regardless of loving South Korean cinema or not. This is a movie that takes you through a lot of various emotions from joy and laughter to sadness and tears.

I upped my rating from eight to nine stars out of ten because of the magnificent ending that director Jong-Kwan Kwon managed to put on the screen. This is truly what South Korean cinema is all about.

Truly A Sad Movie

Sad Movie lives up to its title. It tells various stories of people from different walks of life that ends up either through tragedy, frustration or unhappiness in life.Aside from that, it provides us lessons that are applicable in our daily life.

First off, there's Jin-Woo,a handsome, noble, but lunkheaded firefighter dating a sign language interpreter named Su-Jung.It looks like the two are ready to take the next big step in their relationship, but Jin-Woo's unwillingness to give up his dangerous profession and his occasional obliviousness to Su-Jung's needs keeps derailing any plans for wedding bells between the two.

It is led by a stellar cast from Korea like Jeong Woo-Sung, Im Su-Jeong, Cha Tae-Hyeon and Shin Min-ah. It is not your average melodramatic film.All stars did a wonderful job in this touching movie.

An 8 out of 10 rating.Highly Recommended for people who loves Korean Movies.

A Nutshell Review: A Season for Love

It's been some time since I've watched a movie with a relative huge ensemble cast (think the last was Crash), and little did I expect this Korean romance movie to boost the same too, with fine acting, good comedy and lots of love demonstrated in various ways.

There are 4 separate stories in this film, and it's difficult for me to judge which of them is superior than the other. Each looked into its niche area, and have ample screen time to develop its story, though the characters do get intertwined in one another's story with little conscious interaction.

The first concerns a firefighter and his girlfriend, who works in a TV station as a news translator for the mute. She's waiting for him to propose, focused on the rationale that given his dangerous job, she likes the idea of him having to think of her, to hesitate for a while before jumping into danger. He, on the other hand, is waiting for that perfect opportunity, setting and all, before popping the question. Initially I thought that this was the most stable of the relationships, until they hit a brick wall in their communications, and as usual, misunderstanding ensues.

Breaking down of communications also happen between the firefighter and his soon-to-be sister-in-law, but that provided some of the best comedic situations in the movie. She's mute, and had her life saved by him (but he fell for the sister, so don't ask). She works as a Snow White doll in a theme park, and gets infatuated with a painter who frequents the same park. However, she's slightly disfigured on her face, and hides behind the Snow White caricature all the time. I found this to be something that I could relate to, being shy, yet bold when hiding behind a mask. Given by the audience's reaction, this piece probably is the most popular with its identifiable theme of infatuation, and the cutesy way in which it got played out.

The third story is about a mother-son relationship. The mother, being a career woman, hardly gets to interact with her child, and the son misses his mother badly. Until an illness confines her to the hospital bed, and they start to bond as mother-son would, given plenty of communication opportunities. However, as the story unfolds, it's also the most predictable of the lot. It's touching, but not as touching as the mother-son relationship in the Japanese movie Be With You last year.

The last story, and perhaps the saddest of all, is between a boy and a girl who've broken up. The girl's stuck in a dead end job and yearns to be rescued by an economically stable guy, but the guy's she's in love with (or used to be) is perpetually stuck in unemployment. When they broke up, the circumstances under which it was told to him, brought him an entrepreneurial opportunity. He tries to woo back his love, and I felt that the ending for this segment was the best in the way it developed, with the fine cinematography of reflection and rain.

The soundtrack is kept simple, with the theme song played over and over again in various situations. But somehow it's strange, that the same song, when played, seemed able to evoke the different emotions the situation wants from you. And that I'd tip my hat off to.

Halfway through, I thought that it would make a nice Valentine's movie, with its bountiful picturesque and heartwarming moments. But by its ending, even though events played out is typical of a weepy, I'd still recommend it for this season of love, for the plain message of not taking a significant other, a loved one, for granted. Tell them "I Love You", now.
