I'm at a loss for words - this is a beautiful story that ended up making me cry and I wasn't expecting to - but somewhere near the end tears just kept on coming out :'( *still sniffling* It really shows you how revenge is something someone should never start b/c it could go on forever if a person decides on it, forgiveness is the real key.
I love the painful story between the brothers - it really broke my heart - I felt for all the characters - the older brother, the younger brother and the Jongbeom (Dokgu from Inspiring Generation) and that other kid from school - people get hurt in the course of life and the steps they take after the hurt is what really counts - do they make bad choices or good ones - can they change?...
Re-watch Value: I will more than likely re-watch this at some point.
I definitely recommend people to watch this - it's very well done and very moving. It really pulls your emotions in right away - but prepare a tissue or two for the end.

Yoo Bo Ra – the screenwriter – also wrote “Just Between Lovers” and this short drama special has her style of telling the story.

It’s a very ambitious cinema: it presents very intense relationships between brothers and a closed circle of revenge and hatred. The story is really heartbreaking and painful. The portraits of characters are build in minimalist way and we have to guess what has happened in the past in their life. We watch the younger brother (palyed by Seo Young Joo) and we indeed feel his loneliness, anger and innocence. He asks, is it possible to have a better life? Is it possible to have a hope?

The cinematography is outstanding, the ambience of an abandoned neighborhood and a fish shop creates a suggestive cold image of the world. The music fits in this cold and bitter world.
I think it’s one of the best drama special I’ve watched. While good, funny, interesting drama is 8/10, this one deserves 10. I highly recommend.
