Spending My Sunday
I haven’t written on this blog for quite some time now. Really… it’s kinda devastating to know that you have a lot of things you want to do, but have so little time. Well… anyway after spending 3 days and 2 nights in Boracay, which I will have a different post. I have spent my Sunday watching movies and Shinee’s Hello Baby.
It was a long time ago when I last watched a Korean movie, the title is “Finding Mr. Destiny,” which by the way is really good. I decided to watch a Korean movie that ended in two movies because I still had time and there are a lot of Kmovies that my brother downloaded.
The first movie is titled “My Little Bride,” which stars Mary. I call her that because it’s easier to remember than her real name, and it’s her name in “Mary Stayed Out Late Last Night.” The other one is Kim Raewon… I don’t know whether I spelled it correctly. (I’m kinda lazy to find the correct spelling of his name ^^)
Here’s a picture of them. They are a cute couple even if they have a huge age gap… hehehehe… I also spelled his name correctly… yehey… thanks Google.
The story is really simple and normal because it was a about a fixed marriage between a high school student and a college student. However, it’s cute and kinda refreshing for me. Since it is mixed with comedy, it gives me a good feeling. There is also no huge conflict in the story… well besides the fact that the two of them do want to get married. It is more of a struggle in Mary’s part because she is just 15 years old and is already married to a college guy, who is about to graduate. She also started dating her ultimate crush… I do not blame her for doing this even though it’s called cheating. She’s a high school student…
Even though Sang Min (Kim Raewon) knew about Bo Eun’s (Mary) relationship with another guy, he kept silent about it and understood her. It was also hinted in the story that Sang Min’s first love was Bo Eun because she always visited him when he was in the army. However, our innocent Bo Eun thought it was Sang Min’s senior… hehehehe ^^
Bo Eun’s relationship with her fellow student was revealed because of her brother’s friends. It’s kinda shocking since her whole family found out about it. She was comforted by her mother and realized Sang Min’s feelings for her. After not seeing Sang Min after the incident, she became wary and also realized her feelings for Sang Min. At their school festival, she broke up with his boyfriend and declared her love for Sang Min in front of many students.
I actually cried at the ending… a cry of happiness.
After the fun and cute story of “My Little Bride,” I watched another love story. This time it’s more of a romantic heart-warming movie. The title is “Nae Sarang” or “My Love.” This is a story of three couples and a guy who experienced love during the Christmas season.
The couple that I like best is So-hyeon and Ji woo. Their story started when So-hyeon got the courage to join other college students in drinking in a restaurant. However, So-hyeon was weak against alcohol because she got easily drunk after one shot. After the incident when she got drunk and Ji woo helped her, she asked Ji woo to help her learn to drink a bottle of soju. Thus, their story begins.
Another couple is Joo-won and Se-jin. Their story was told from Se-jin’s memory. When their story was first told, I wondered why it was from Se-jin’s memory, and it’s kinda shocking to find out why. Joo-won believed in fantasy and dreams that she even thought that her reality is part of her dreams. This sometimes made Se-jin irritated, but at the same time he fell deeply in-love with Joo-won.
The last couple is Soo-jeong and Jeong-seok. I don’t really like their story because it was not that interesting. Although because of them and their company, the ending of the story took place during a solar eclipse.
Jin-man “a free hug activist” does not have a separate story unlike the three couples. However, the story about the reason why he returned to Seoul was told during his talks with Soo-jeong. They were about to meet after 6 years during a solar eclipse.
The ending of the movie is very heart-warming and good. Joo-won and Se-ji’s story ended when Se-jin told Joo-won that she would take a one year off from college. However, Joo-won realized the reason behind Se-jin’s desire to drink one bottle of soju. It was her first year in college when the two of them met. Se-jin began to like him, but Joo-won told her that he likes girls who know how to drink at least one bottle of soju. Joo-won looked for Se-jin and told her that he would teach her to drink until she could drink one case of soju.
Se-jin’s story ended when he gave his resignation letter after knowing that he would be assigned to line 3, which is different from the line that he and Joo-won always took. He also went to their train and found Joo-won’s gift during the eclipse. At the end, it was shown that Joo-won was beside him.
Jeong-seok realized that Soo-jeong was someone whom he needed, so he told her that they should start again little by little.
Lastly, Jin-man’s story ended when his girlfriend called him and told him that she was not able to wait for him, and she got married. Even though her ex-girlfriend was already married, Jin-man was still happy because she was able to keep her promise and watch the eclipse with him.
I cried a lot after finishing the movie. The movies are really worth watching. I was supposed to watch another Korean movie, but after checking the movies on our computer and found out that most of them are drama movies, I just decided to watch “Shinee’s Hello Baby.” (My eyes are kinda swollen already!) These two movies are really good. I hope other people could watch them. Although my review is haphazardly done, I hope it’s convincing enough. ^^
