Wow. Part of my Korean obsession has been watching Korean movies. So far I love Korean movies, the few that I've seen are just beautiful and sweet.
I had a few hours to kill this afternoon so I thought I'd find a movie to watch. I picked a Korean movie that I found on the internet called Ditto. It's in Korean (obviously) with English subtitles.
It was an absolutely AMAZING movie, so beautiful, but it's been over for a while now and I still haven't managed to stop bawling about it. It's kind of about life not turning out the way you thought it would, and since that was once quite a theme in my life, maybe it hit a little too close to home.
But it seriously is one of the most beautiful movies I've ever seen. The whole thing was just amazing. I'm going to see if I can track it down on the internet somewhere with English subtitles and buy it. It's just THAT beautiful.
So if you're in the mood to bawl your eyes out for an afternoon, you absolutely MUST see it. Even if you're not a fan of movies with subtitles, try it anyway.
I found the movie on http://www.veoh.com/. They have it there in three pieces, but there might be somewhere else on the internet where you can watch it all in one piece.
Here's a clip of it from the veoh website. There should be a link in the clip where you can go to watch the whole movie. You might have to download a little player, but I did it and it was fine.

It made me bawl my eyes out, but it also made me want to watch it again! I'm off to see if I can find a website to buy it on!
UPDATE! I found the DVD here for $10. www.dvdasian.com/_e/Korea/product/17957/Ditto.htm
