I am watching the Autumn one right now. There is just something wrong about a brother and sister (even if not by blood) falling in love with each other . . .


Ahhhh, haha...I watched Ga Eul Dong Hwa the summer I was in Korea (2001) in my dorm room w/ fellow KorAms, sobbing our fool heads off..haha.  Actually, *cringe* I just got it on DVD...I'm such a sap!

I cried too, but only the first disc or two. Then the sibling thing started and I suffered through to the end. Guess I am not much of a romantic, lol.

Harvard Love Story!  C'mon, its got 2 lawyers, a conspiracy, a love interest with cancer / leukemia (standard in any korean movie), and a love story.  What more could future law students ask for!??  Anyone else seen this drama?

Korean War movie, about 2 brothers.  One is on a mission to pretty much become a martyr so he can send his younger brother home.  Eventually, he loses focus and becomes more wrapped up with becoming a war hero and defeating the evil commies.

At the end, his brother brings him back to his humanity, and he returns to his real goal, which was to send his younger brother home, at any cost.

Also, the acting was solid.

Jang Dong Gun is usually reliable, but I was pleasantly surprised with Wun Bin's strong performance as well.
