The greatest saddest movie you need to see.
As a proclaimed “Twinkie” and one who was not raised by Asian parents, lately, I’ve been trying to get more involved in Korean culture. I’ve been trying to watch more Korean movies, TV shows, and listening to some K-Pop. Of course, one cannot get a real accurate view of a culture if it’s all actors and fictional storylines. But, being in the US this is what I can do until I visit. And I can’t wait to visit!
Let’s talk about why you are reading this post. Hope. A story that follows a family’s recovery after So-won an 8-year-old girl who was sexually assaulted by an older drunken stranger while walking to school. I didn’t realize it was based on a true story (Nayoung Case) that happened in 2008. You can watch it on Netflix, I’m not sure where you can watch it outside of the US though.
I love watching sad movies (when you’re in the mood) and foreign films. And when they’re together, yassss sign me up. Sol Kyung-gu (Dong-Hoon) and Lee Re (Im So-won) are brilliant in their roles and I felt like they were my family. It definitely is a heavy movie and when you’re watching it be sure to have a lot of tissues close by. All in all, it’s completely worth it and I would 100% recommend it.
Watch it and let me know your thoughts!
