YesAsia Editorial Description

Lee Eon Hee makes a fantastic directorial debut with this simple, poignant tale of young love. Containing a mother-daughter relationship that is as touching as it is unconventional, this unusually titled film centers on Gang Min Ah (Lim Soo Jung, A Tale of Two Sisters), a sickly high school girl who's been in and out of hospitals since she was a young girl. She rooms with her single parent mom (Lee Mi Sook, Ode to the Goose), who encourages her daughter to live life to the fullest. Poor Min Ah is afflicted with a terminal disease and is not long for this world. In reaction to this terrible reality, it seems both mother and daughter have learned to stay focused solely on the present moment, since the future seems so terribly bleak. Still, Min Ah dreams of someday having a boyfriend, but can anyone really match up to her ideal fantasy?

Things take an interesting turn when a photographer named Yeong Jae (Kim Rae Won, My Little Bride) takes up residence in the apartment just below theirs. From the get-go, he does his best to make friends with the reclusive Min Ah, but she's not interested in being his pal. Slowly, however, Min Ah begins to come out of her shell, and a friendship blossoms between the two neighbors, a fact that brings much joy to Min Ah's mother and friends. Soon, friendship turns to true love, but with Min Ah's terminal illness looming over their romance, is there any chance for a happy ending? Find out in this heartwarming Korean melodrama sure to bring audiences to tears!

민아, 미숙 그리고 영재
어렸을 때부터 몸이 약해 항상 병원의 침대 위에서만 살아야 했던 민아. 고등학생이 되어서야 겨우 학교에서 친구들과 함께 생활할 수 있게 되었지만 세상에 아직 익숙하지 못한 민아는 여전히 외톨이다. 게다가 그녀의 왼손은 선천적인 기형으로 민아는 그것을 감추기 위해 항상 벙어리 장갑을 끼고 다닌다. 하지만 그녀가 외롭지 않고 동시에 당당할 수 있는 이유는 이름을 부르며 친구처럼 지내는 미숙이, 즉 엄마가 있기 때문이다. 발레리나가 되고 싶은 소녀 민아와 언제까지나 딸 곁에서 행복을 지켜주고 싶은 엄마 미숙. 조용하기만 했던 그녀들의 삶 속으로 어느 날 불쑥, 영재라는 청년이 나타난다.

조금씩 자라나는 풋풋한 사랑의 향기
사진작가이고 호남형이지만, 약간은 실없고 건들거리는 청년 영재의 등장에 민아는 수줍은 거북이처럼 자신의 껍질 속으로 쏘옥 들어가고 만다. 하지만 그런 민아의 반응에도 아랑곳없이 자꾸만 그녀의 삶 속으로 파고들어오는 영재. 민아가 가장 소중히 여기는 라이터를 빌려준 것을 빌미로 둘은 점차 가까워지기 시작한다. 함께 우산을 쓰고, 사진을 찍고, 버스를 타는 일상 속에서 민아는 서서히 영재에게 끌리고 있는 자신을 발견하게 된다. 그리고 민아에게는 또다른 소원이 생겨난다. 그것은 영재의 방, 벽 위에 붙어있는 사진 속 거북이를 현실에서 꼭 보고 싶다는 것이었고 그로인해 그녀는 거북이가 살고 있다는 하와이로의 여행을 꿈꾸게 된다.

하와이의 푸른 물결을 헤엄치는 거북이를 만나고 싶어!
영재와의 사랑을 조금씩 키워가던 민아는 어느 날, 엄마의 일기장에서 놀라운 사실을 발견하게 된다. 그것은 자신의 생명이 얼마 남지 않았을지도 모른다는 사실. 그녀는 충격과 슬픔에 휩싸이지만 곧 자신이 해야할 행동들이 어떤 것들인지에 대해 깨닫게 된다. 이제 그녀에게 남은 것은 자신의 소중한 사람들과 최대한 많이 행복한 시간을 갖는 것이다. 죽음이 다가오기 전, 그녀는 영재의 사진기를 통해 자신의 행복을 차곡차곡 쌓아가기 시작한다. 하지만 민아는 하와이에서 영재와 함께 거북이를 볼 수 있을까? 그리고 영원한 행복을 손에 넣을 수 있을까?

Professional Review of " (Blu-ray) (Korea Version)"

June 26, 2007

This professional review refers to
From first-time director Lee Eon Hee comes …ing, an oddly titled, yet highly engaging romantic melodrama about living life one day at a time. Im Soo Jung, star of A Tale of Two Sisters, plays Kang Min Ah, a pretty teenager who has had the misfortune of spending most of her life in hospitals, especially during her formative years. Min Ah has a deformed hand, and unbeknownst to her, a terminal illness. However, Min Ah's single mother Mi Sook (Lee Mi Sook) does know the truth and keeps it hidden from her daughter, instead trying to turn a negative fact into positive motivation. Although hurting on the inside, Mi Sook puts on a brave face, encouraging her daughter to take life by the horns and live in the here and now. Min Ah is skeptical, but soon she finds the possibilities of life re-opening to her.

Soon enough, a photographer named Young Jae (Kim Rae Won, from My Little Bride) enters both of their lives by moving into the downstairs apartment. Upon seeing her, Young Jae immediately does his best to win Min Ah's attention, engaging in a series of well-intentioned, but slightly juvenile acts that he hopes will make her change her mind. Although highly resistant at first, Min Ah eventually caves in to Young Jae's goofily charming persistence, and the two embark on a tentative friendship. Much to the delight of her mother, the friendship between Min Ah and Young Jae eventually turns to love (albeit chaste), and they soon plan a trip to Hawaii together. But with the bitter realities of Min Ah's fatal illness looming low on the horizon, one begins to wonder if the budding couple will be able to make it to Hawaii before it's too late.

With such a small cast, the burden of the film's success lies on the film's three principals, and the actors acquit themselves quite well in their respective roles. As the focus of attention, Im Soo Jung delivers a memorable performance in her role as Min Ah. And although they do have some highly charged emotional scenes, Lee Mi Sook and Kim Rae Won bring a welcome bit of comic relief to the proceedings, which in itself, is another positive of the film. Rather than bog down the narrative with the kind of hefty emotional baggage generally associated with the genre, the filmmakers instead use humor as a more natural way to get the audience to identify and/or sympathize with their characters. Part of what makes …ing a solid film experience is that if the terminal illness aspect were eliminated altogether, what remained – a story about a shy, reclusive girl falling in love with an outgoing young man – would sustain a film in and of itself. And considering the plethora of "terminal illness tearjerkers" plaguing the market these days, part of me wishes that element actually was excised from the film. But still, as far as these things go, this is a topnotch melodrama.

One of the more innovative aspects of the film is that the plot doesn't rely solely on the romance element, but instead gives equal, if not more time, to the unconventional mother-daughter relationship. Because Min Ah was deprived of friends her own age due to her constant trips to the hospital, her mother asks to be called by her first name, becoming, in effect, Min Ah's "best friend" from an early age. Even so, the way in which the two characters interact as mother and daughter comes across rather realistically, and Mi Sook's occasional deadpan "revelations" to her daughter always make for entertaining comic digressions.

Although the specter of Min Ha's possible death is ever-present, …ing feels less heavy-handed and contrived than most melodramas. Even within the parameters of the genre, the actors are able to convey a real sense of warmth, humor, and believability, thus making …ing a poignant, yet highly enjoyable cinematic experience. If you're a fan of this type of movie, then …ing won't disappoint.

what? Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
I don't understand where all these bad ratings are comming from. was a fantastic movie. It wasn't just about two people falling in love, there was some other aspects concerning life and death. And the filmography was just amazing in my opinion.
I hope no one is misled by bad reviews, because you'd be sorry to miss this movie.

Disappointing... Customer Review Rated Bad 6 - 6 out of 10
Very predictable. Kim Rae Won is gorgeous and charming as usual but that's about it. The chemistry felt forced. The story tells you how he becomes linked to her, but other than feeling sorry for her, I'm not sure why he falls in love with her. Here's another movie carried by Kim Rae Won.

Film-making straight from the heart Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
"" is a tear-stained joy of a movie! Let's begin by trying to find the meaning of the film's mysterious title. In the English language, one puts abstract words into action by adding "ing" to the end of them. By doing so, "life" becomes "living" and "love" becomes "loving". That's what this movie is about -- it's about turning abstract concepts of life and love into the day-to-day joys and woes of living and loving. Lim Soo Jung plays Min Ha, a physically deformed yet pretty high school girl who has spent too much of her young life in the hospital battling a series of physical illnesses. Her mother (Lee Mi Sook) decides to pull the girl out of the hospital, thus giving her an opportunity to enjoy a relatively normal life in whatever little time Min Ha has left. Min Ha soon finds herself pursued by a handsome young photographer (Kim Rae Won), who moves in downstairs. The movie shines due to the exceptionally loving relationship shared by mother and daughter and the sweet surprising romance that develops between Min Ha and the photographer. The film's script is unusually well-written and its unexpected plot twists add just the right touch of poignancy and unpredictability. All three of the primary actors do wonderfully well in their roles, delivering real emotional power through understated performances. Lee Mi Sook in particular stands out as a single mom striving to do the right thing for her daughter although she knows it may shorten the time they can spend together. (If you wish to see more of this fine actress, I highly recommend the films "Pong" and "Besa Me Mucho", although both of them are suitable only for mature audiences.) I recommend "" very, very highly for a general audience.

Too many would have beens Customer Review Rated Bad 6 - 6 out of 10
From the onset, the viewer is given a taste of how close the mother and daughter are, and this is an important foundation of the movie because of a twist towards the end.

Im SooJeung plays Kang MinAh, a reclusive young lady who knows she's sick but doesn't know EXACTLY how sick because that fact is hidden by her mother, whose only wish is to have MinAh's remaining years lived in happiness. Enter Lee YoungJae, played by Kim RaeWon, a photography student. He befriends MinAh, who is reluctant at first but gives in when YoungJae proves to be relentless in his pursuit of friendship.

And so the story progresses with YoungJae and MinAh dating. I didn't see any solid scene where I can conclude that the guys are falling in love, except maybe the hospital scene when YoungJae placed on MinAh's deformed hand a ring - and that signalled YoungJae being IN love already. And even that was weak because there weren't previous scenes to back it up. Sure, MinAh was probably attracted to YoungJae, her lines say as much; and YoungJae was extraordinarily sweet and nice to MinAh, but by the time MinAh succumbs to her illness, you're left hanging.

Now on to that twist I was talking about earlier. I'm not about to spoil the ending for those who weren't able to watch the movie yet, but I'll give my two cent's worth without spoilers. Here goes: the twist kind of muddled the plot a bit, and I found myself replaying scenes in my head as to when YoungJae and the mom could have possibly met. I was left to speculate. I also found myself reasoning with myself that maybe the reason why the scenes between Youngjae and MinAh aren't that solid to establish a romantic set-up is because there would be a twist towards the end. I got more confused rather than being enlightened though.

I think it would have been better if they showed the meeting between YoungJae and the mom earlier in the movie. the twist would no longer be a surprise as discerning viewers would already know what will happen, but heck, it would have been a million times better and more poignant. Think 10 Things I Hate About You and ...ING's plot would have been illuminating.

Simply Beautiful Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10 is a rare jewel among films and deserves so much more exposure. It is quite simply put, beautiful. A simple movie with a beautiful story containing so much depth, it pulls on every human emotion. Ing does so well showing the immeasurable love between a mother and daughter and the beauty that lies in every waking moment of life, while the dynamic between Im Soo-Jeong and Kim Rae-won is ever so bitter sweet. From the acting all the way to the soundtrack, this movie does not disappoint.
