I just saw this film & I can highly recommend it. It was simply beautiful.

Its set in 1969 and you learn a little bit about this tumultuous period in Korean & world history. Amongst the backdrop of all this is set a simple yet timeless love story.

Both leads were wonderful and made a huge impact in an understated way.
The music fit just perfectly with the mood & time period this was set in.

My re-watch score is always low as I tend not to re-watch films/dramas.
