A story of a woman who has to throw away her love because she and her best friend fell in love with the same man. So-eun has been loving Dong-hee for a while. When she was stalking him outside of their classroom, she used an old radio to be her alibi to cover up what she has been doing. The old radio has some mojo though and from there she met Ji In who was a man from the future. They became talking diaries to each other separated by time. When they realized that they were in fact living in different eras, So-eun learned that the man she was talking to will be the future son of Sun-mi, her best friend and Dong-hee. Ji In visited his parents’ country house and from there he knew of So-eun and his father’s interrupted love. He was able to track So-eun in the present time, and learned the truth that she gave way for her parent’s love.
This movie felt Il Mare-ish but using a radio this time for the time element. Steady and okay for me, this is sweet, sad and nostalgic, but perfect for a weekend dose of romantic break.
