My Review of Did We Really Love?

Did We Really Love? (1999) marks the end of the early years of Bae Yong Joon as an actor. In 1999, Yong Joon enters the ancient and historical Sungkyungkwan University to study drama and film directing. Does not return until 2001, when he shows off everything he learned in his college years in the drama Hotelier (2001). He bids farewell to this cycle with this serious plot drama. Did We Really Love? is a South Korean drama series broadcast by MBC in 1999. Starring Bae Yong-Joon, the series portrays the struggles between love, happiness, and the pursuit of material success.

He battles with his feelings and his ambitions and ultimately picks love over money. Even though they go through hardships, he realizes that he can't survive without both, and so he gives up on Shin-young for money and wishes her happiness. He only does this because everything seems to go wrong while he is with Shin-young. He loses his job, all his money, and his aunt's house gets seized. He thinks that if he has money, none of this would have ever happened. Through all the stress, he finds out that he has brain cancer and expresses his desire to die.

Fun Facts of Did We Really Love?:

Bae Yong Joon is one of those leading actors who kiss little in movies and dramas. However, this is the drama which has kissed most.

Yong Joon is a gentleman, but in this drama, he was asked to give the actress who characterized his sister the only slap he has given on television.

Yong Joon entered the historic Sungkyungkwan University when the drama ended. Precisely Yong Joon's character is a college student who has a full-time job.

This is the only drama where the character of Bae Yong Joon dies. The scene is quiet because he dies while he was sleeping, in the arms of his wife.

It is the only drama where the character of Bae Yong Joon becomes seriously ill. He suffers from brain cancer and very real presents all stages of the disease: dizziness, nausea, vomiting, severe headaches, loss of vision, hearing loss and quadriplegia.

My Opinion:

It is a very real drama, with situations that can occur in any country. Bae Yong Joon presents the reality that many live: studying, working, sacrificing, getting sick. All with a stunning realism. The one who sees this drama needs to arm himself with strength because he lives it as if he were a family member tearing himself before our eyes. The scenes of his suffering as a cancer patient touch our soul. So much to work, study and get a degree in finance, the desire to be rich, the love of his family, the sacrifice of leaving the love of his life for money, feeling worthy of pity, come to less, the desire to die when losing his senses, the encounter with his mother in that lamentable state, the birth of a nephew that bears his name and will never see grow, and finally, the resignation and succumb to death in the arms of his wife. The drama of every day, in many families in the world, expressed with pain. It is the most painful drama to represent in Yong Joon's career. A jewel of dramatic art. Because this drama we can all live in real life ...


An anecdote that I wish to share ...

I watched this drama seven and a half years ago. I just became widowed just a week ago. I cried inconsolably in the final episode, because my husband died in my arms, sleeping peacefully, in the same way, that Yong Joon dies in the drama. The impression I got was very big. Only to share with you. Thank you for allowing me to tell you and to undress my soul...

Datos Curiosos de Did We Really Love ?:

Bae Yong Joon es uno de esos actores principales que se besan poco en películas y dramas. Sin embargo, este es el drama que más ha besado.

Yong Joon es un caballero, pero en este drama, se le pidió que le diera a la actriz que caracterizó a su hermana la única bofetada que dio en televisión.

Yong Joon entró en la histórica Universidad de Sungkyungkwan cuando terminó el drama. Precisamente el personaje de Yong Joon es un estudiante universitario que tiene un trabajo de tiempo completo.

Este es el único drama donde muere el personaje de Bae Yong Joon. La escena es tranquila porque muere mientras dormía, en los brazos de su esposa.

Es el único drama donde el personaje de Bae Yong Joon se enferma gravemente. Padece cáncer cerebral y presenta enfermedades muy reales en todas las etapas de la enfermedad: mareos, náuseas, vómitos, dolores de cabeza severos, pérdida de visión, pérdida de la audición y cuadriplejia.

Mi opinión:

Es un drama muy real, con situaciones que pueden ocurrir en cualquier país. Bae Yong Joon presenta la realidad que muchos viven: estudiar, trabajar, sacrificarse, enfermarse. Todo con un realismo impresionante. El que ve este drama necesita armarse con fuerza porque lo vive como si fuera un miembro de la familia que se rompe ante nuestros ojos. Las escenas de su sufrimiento como paciente de cáncer tocan nuestra alma. Tanto para trabajar, estudiar y obtener un título en finanzas, el deseo de ser rico, el amor de su familia, el sacrificio de dejar el amor de su vida por dinero, sentirse digno de compasión, menospreciar, el deseo de morir. al perder los sentidos, el encuentro con su madre en ese lamentable estado, el nacimiento de un sobrino que lleva su nombre y nunca verá crecer, y finalmente, la resignación y la muerte en los brazos de su esposa. El drama de cada día, en muchas familias del mundo, se expresa con dolor. Es el drama más doloroso para representar en la carrera de Yong Joon. Una joya del arte dramático. Porque este drama todos podemos vivir en la vida real ...


Una anécdota que deseo compartir ...

Vi este drama hace siete años y medio. Acabo de quedar viuda hace apenas una semana. Lloré desconsoladamente en el episodio final, porque mi esposo murió en mis brazos, durmiendo pacíficamente, de la misma manera que Yong Joon muere en el drama. La impresión que tuve fue muy grande. Solo para compartir con ustedes. Gracias por permitirme decirles esto y desvestir mi alma ...
