This is quite possibly my favorite movie. Definitely my favorite Korean movie:
Kim Seon Ah is the star, my favorite Korean actress. She re-examines her former lovers, seeing if they only wanted sex, or if there was love between them. Then she charges all the men invoices for sex and hatches a hilarious plan to make them pay up.
It’s like a romantic comedy, but there is no “couple” in the end. Just Seon Ah, playing piano, her mother crying and smiling after watching, and then Seon Ah, writing a note of thanks in her first published book.
Oh my gosh, why do I love this movie so much?
I sighed and cried while watching it with my boyfriend. I ended up confessing to him, I watched this movie before coming to Korea, and after coming back stateside, I told him during the beginning of the movie, that it made me feel nostalgia for South Korea. I then confessed, “Korea is my first love.”
Yeah, the first time I think I have said it out loud in a while.
The movie came out in 2004, by the way.
That’s why I love this movie.
It was the lesson before I went to Korea.
It is the same lesson I am trying to master now.
Who am I?
