Loooooved this. Could’ve watched another hour of this middle of this movie. Honestly feel like the mystery part could’ve gone away, since it feels like it’s just there to set up an ending that’s kinda obvious? Just so sweet in a way that’s simultaneously painful because you know it can only be sweet for so long, and then it’s heartbreaking. All-timer final shot. Can’t imagine how much more this would’ve worked on me if i knew anything about the complicated relationship between North and South Korea. Luckily, it still works very well for me because I know a lot about the complicated relationship between me being a straight man and Shin Ha-kyun/Lee Byung-hun’s faces.
