this storyline...very Unique love story that starts only when one of them dies...i also thought the language part was interesting cuz the movie is in korean but kangjae's friend jokingly says sayonara to kangjae as they're waiting in front of the immigration room, failan must communicate to the korean characters in mandarin but she talks to herself in cantonese
I respect it more than I love it, especially for the social commentary. Despite having never met, the two main characters, although broken, unfortunate and with somewhat hopeless destinies, manage to give each other much needed dignity and self-respect their lives had been missing for so long.
A low-key and depressing drama about a couple that never meet. Kind of runs out of steam every 10 minutes (especially at the start) then manages to revive. Considering its settings, this viewer would have enjoyed a more thorough exploration of themes of time and memory.
