Country: South Korea
A love story between a struggling boxer and a blind woman. Can they beat the odds and have a happy ever after or are they destined to have a tragic ending?
So Ji Sub – Cheol Min
Han Hyo Joo – Jung Hwa
So Ji Sub really makes sad tortured souls with a heart of gold look so dreamy. or maybe I am just a big fan of him. I couldn’t stop staring at his eyes, brushing his messy hair and hug him and say “It’s alright”.
Jung Hwa is lucky she meet a decent guy who didn’t care if she was blind, and didn’t take advantage of her. It was just a bonus that Cheol Min was handsome and sexy.
I actually didn’t expect a happy ending since Korean movies tend to go darker than Kdramas. I really thought Cheol Min will sacrifice himself by donating his own eyes to Jung Hwa because he felt guilty that he indirectly caused the accident that made her blind. Maybe because I just recently re-watched this super classic music video of Kiss – Because I’m a Woman. LOL.
I can’t say I agree with Cheol Min’s idea to pay for Jung Hwa’s surgery but I guess that’s the best that he could do given the situation. And him not contacting Jung Hwa after was understandable since he was also in pain and needed to recover.
That scene when Jung Hwa finally recognized Cheol Min made me also cry and I’m so happy when they met again!! Cheol Min accepted Jung Hwa as she were, and likewise, Jung Hwa is there to support Cheol Min too. I believe they are still together now, and still very happy!
