It was extremely heartwarming and touching.

Even though the music wasn't outstanding I didn't mind at all. Because the plot got me entirely. At first you may think it's boring, but as time goes by, the development of the movie will catch you.

This movie, with this surprising development reminds of "3-iron" another Korean movie. It also got no outstanding music, but THAT'S the charm of this movie, it doesn't got too much dialogues between the lead actors but THAT got its reason, and that will be revealed at the end.

Honestly, i don't know how to express myself but it just made me feel awkward, it was a sick movie but IN A POSITIVE WAY.
Definitely, it's not an easy watch for everyone but still i loved the movie (it made me cry TT). These kind of movies are very rare to find........

I want to put my opinion that i think the movie does not completely intend to educate us about HIV as we can see from some instances that even the doctors themselves were not completely educated about the HIV (don't worry not a spoiler) and i think that's because the context of the movie was based on the late 20th century when the research was still going on and was considered taboo. (Sorry!! these facts hold no credibility, i randomly made them up just to explain what i mean to say).
Instead, i would say it mostly focused on miserable life of prostitutes and AIDS was obviously a most probable consequence of prostitution.

Cinematography, Pace, Acting were nice.

IMO it was a really good movie which shed light on some serious issues while at the same time delivering us some serious romance plot. (maybe sick love for others, but not for me TT)

It just lacked giving life to become an exciting story ...
The excellent story, direction, acting and cinematography have taken this film to all the linguistic obstacles, yet it has shortcomings, small but responsible for an emotional emptiness for those who watch it. The story covers the issue of AIDS and prostitution, two topics that are still somewhat taboo in Korea as well as in much of Asia. It's worth watching!
