Never Forever came highly recommended and it was ever better than I had anticipated. In fact, it is now on my favorite movie list. It is extremely passionate, intense, emotional, and full of pain, as well. This poor woman finds herself in such a dilemna: when you care for a person, how do you give in to loving another. The story is beautifully and realistically played out with a resolution and ending that is unforgettable. I loved this movie so much that I will be watching it again shortly.

Do not watch this if you are an old fashioned conservative. There are several sexually explicit scenes and it is not the typical Korean one love fate. Since it is an Inde movie, I had to rent it from Amazon for $2.99, but it is free on you tube with multiple clips under avi (start with clip 0).

the title can mean 'never forever apart' or 'never forever together' - confusing but very Korean, as we got an open ending. i enjoyed this movie - read a lot of mixed comments and considering the topic (that's a bit sensitive - to put it mildly) i get why. but all in all i enjoyed this very much - more than i thought i would...

first off Vera Farmiga is a great actress, so didn't expect anything less then what i got from her - seen David McInnis in a load of Kmovies and dramas, never found his acting lacking, but here it was a bit off, maybe cause his strong points r action(?) not emotion. or maybe his character was a bit lacking in general - bottom line we need his character's POV.

we start off with Andrew's fathers funeral and his 'attack' on his wife (heard that there r people who get horny at funerals, its a need to affirm they r alive or something along those lines). as i have never felt this way (only depressed and sad) will go by what i've heard. and from there to him standing on the roof and looking below, was scene after scene of his silent personal "drama" - which considering the only thing i had to go by, was the description - i guess his reason was his low sperm count. he never verbalizes much.

Sophie on the other hand gives u tons to "work with", u know what she is feeling not only with words - the desperation that makes her do something unthinkable. her humbling herself, when surrounded by his mother and those weird cult like believers, preaching at her (her need to pray in order to conceive, cause she is obviously the one at fault) her taking it quietly - cause of her love for her husband. his suicide attempt, fueling her hopelessness and despair, swallowing her pride into approaching Ji Ha - with a bold unthinkable "job offer"... let alone going through with it - u see that its abhorrent to her, and when u get that she did conceive in the past and aborted the baby, without Andrew's knowledge - how guilt is also playing a huge hand in her desperation to convince, this time and make amends to her "suffering" husband, that she feels she wronged cause of aborting a baby when they weren't even married or committed in anyway.

Ji Ha has his own problems like any illegal immigrant, he is working around the clock to make ends meat and find a way to become legal, plus bring over his gf. he is basically living in isolation. so what starts off as "look at the money" and just do it.. turns into jealousy when he finds out that Sophie's husband is also Korean, plus them being well off and happy - him seeing everything he wants, already in the hands of another - like him is what makes him belligerent - but that blow-up also brings them closer - ironically.. what at the start was mechanical, after the fight turn's emotional - they connect, treat each other like humans.
as will happen when two desperate people find each other, they cling... is this love? hope? guess with the ending we get, it is... at least that's what i chose to believe - she needed to forgive herself and let go of a man that was depressed, and a baby was just a band-aid (she finds that out when Andrew finds out that it aint his baby). and no person tries to kill themselves just cause they can't conceive - there is much more that's going on - that's why i keep saying - Andrew's character is lacking...

the open ending according to a lot is her answering Ji Ha's call and them both moving to Korea, considering the beach - but then i ask, why the kid talking English?!? her being pregnant indicates Ji Ha is the father, not cause of the beach but cause of the choice of wool she is knitting with - the red was the shirt he wore in her "day dream" (when she was having a party and missing/fantasizing about the man she "missed"). personally i think as she left Andrew and comes from money, she had the ability to keep Ji Ha from being deported, plus he Is the father of her baby. (lets not forget Ji Ha said he never felt connect to Korea) that's why i think they still in the US. but the important bit is that everyone agrees that they remind together - so happy ending - so enjoyed this, for sure a rewatch and would happily recommend.
