I finally got the chance to spend an afternoon full of loving vibes. I received lots of raves about this movie and I must agree to the warm response “Always” has received. It made me miss the feeling of being in love, and I was left smiling, calmed and inspired as I immersed myself in a love story between two people who found love in their vulnerabilities.
Im Jung Hwa was saddled with temporary blindness after surviving from a car accident that killed her parents. She works as a customer service representative over the phone and has lived her life in full swing optimism despite of her disability.
Jang Chul-min was a former boxer who after quitting the profession settled to being a merciless bounty hunter, but in one of his bounty mission he found motivation to start his life in good faith again.
Little by little fondness grew between them, with a life he was never proud of and nothing much to offer, Chul-min mustered whatever he has and took responsibility of a blind woman’s heart.
“Always” broke the romantic dry spell I’ve been having for a while now. It played with the cutesies, the sweetness, the laidback and the contentment feel of a love movie.
On a distracting note, and I mean it to be really utmost distracting… So Ji Sub in his rough, untidy look was a sight to behold, and the short showcase of his abs was a manna from heaven.
The last movie I liked was Postman to Heaven which was also a movie of Han Hyo Joo. Playing a sweet, optimist blind Han Hyo-joo connected to her lead man so well that the blue ray screen emanating love swept the romantic side of me.
Seeing the love grew, saddled, steadied, lost and fulfilled was I think the reason why it created huge admiration. It was an ever after not of a prince and a princess, but by two people whose hearts can love each other with their eyes closed.
