Lovers Of 6 years

I just watch it, been keeping it on the rack for more than 2 weeks and finally I got a chance to watch it.

what so good about this movie. I think the message... 

what is the messages? well you'll know when you're involved with that kind of relationship... trust, faith and loves is not something that should be rely on... trying to make it to the line is not as easy as it seems...

being in relationship for 6 years... all the sparks is no more interesting and no more fun but yet we can't seems to live the habit... is it a habit? 6 years in relationship... me myself choose to move on when the sparks wasn't there and yet I can't seem to forget...

Reviews By Yang Sung-jin

Should couples live together before tying the knot? If this question were asked 20 years ago, most Korean respondents would have expressed their shock and disbelief, much less show any willingness to weigh pros and cons.

Back to the present: Koreans are not so ultraconservative any longer and the number of Korean couples trying out cohabitation is on the rise. The proof is that even a mass-market romantic flick like "Lovers of Six Years (6-nyeonjjae yeonae-jung)" has chosen this daring topic and treats cohabitation as nothing special.

"Nothing special" is also a keyword for Da-jin (Kim Ha-neul), a hard-working editor at a publishing company, and her boyfriend Jae-young (Yoon Gye-sang), an equally diligent home shopping producer. Six years ago, they began to date. Two years ago, they started sleeping together. Now, they are next-door neighbors, but the wall separating their houses does not have any significant function. They virtually share their rooms -- and bedrooms at night. They know each other inside and out so much so that they begin to feel a bit bored, and the magical sparks and excitement is already gone. Their relationships seem to have passed a stage where something special is at work. 

As with other cohabitating couples, there is a risk that Da-jin and Jae-young remain unmarried and yet share so many things in life. Infidelity is one of many risks, though it's pretty fatal given that cohabitation does not entail as strong a commitment as marriage. Da-jin tries to hire a top-notch book designer for her latest project. She juggles up various strategies to win the heart of this much-sought-after designer without realizing that her charm as an attractive woman goes rarely unnoticed. By the way, Kim Ha-neul seems at ease with her role, even in a scene where she has to act as an experienced lover.

While Da-jin has to stave off repeated come-ons from the new acquaintance, her boyfriend is forced to deal with an unabashed temptation from a daring part-time worker at the cable shopping mall.

But the movie does not tackle the issue of infidelity for this cohabiting couple as seriously as it should. Certainly it is an important plot device, but even before such outside forces emerge, they are already in a precarious phase where they feel too familiar with each other and have to seek some additional excuses to stick together -- more convincing excuses than they used to spend six years together as lovers.

In fact, couples who live together before marriage tend to believe that they have the opportunity to test how well they suit each other. But when confronted with overwhelming challenges such as one-night stands, cohabitation is likely to break down faster than those shackled in marriage, which is still held together by a relatively stronger ethic of commitment.

Yoon Gye-sang, former member of now-disbanded music group g.o.d., demonstrates his hidden acting talent by infusing some realism into the stereotypical Korean man character who is extremely generous about his own extra-cohabitation "romance" and unbelievably strict about his partner's "fling." The lesson for women: when deciding to live with a man before marriage, don't set a standard too high since men are generally not so reliable, much less genuinely romantic.

We Got Married Episode 33

Crown J, In Young and Hyungdon spend their day as a family... and that's mean Crown J have to spend his day with 2 people who can't stand each other... this family are fun, they argue about everything, about a couple mug, ramyun (where In Young switch her position from Crown J side to Hyungdon site), Hyungdon potret, the bathroom incident... it was funny looking at Crown J who have to be the middle person trying to settling things but yet the 2 person didn't really care much of what he trying to say... until that point, Crown J already reach his level... so this is the family, Hyungdon is not bad, I guess it's okay for me to have him in the Ant family. He make Crown J more reliable and cool, and In Young really sweet to Crown J.

Hwanhee prepared a surprise for Hwayobi it's their honeymoon, things getting well for them. depart early in the morning Hwanhee take a driver sit where usually Hwayobi is the driver and he's the boss. He seems perfect, and Hwayobi look even pretty now... I guess she lost some weight. Hwanhee is like a perfect hero for Hwayobi, he's done cool stuffs where most of girl will think that he's so manly, he's cool so macho and so on... Hwayobi seems happy too not until she found out the honeymoon suite that Hwanhee prepared for her... I guess girl are always the same, I'll have the exact hope if I'm Hwayobi a romantic honeymoon and a perfect place to spend time... but I guess I'll still considered more... Hwanhee might learn something from the honeymoon incident, there is no such person who accept everything... he really need to learn how to understand Hwayobi. (Hwanhee look like Ken F4 here... or it's just me?)

Hyun Joong and Hwang Bo still spending their time with the Idol... I guess this episode show much more on the Idol then Hyun Joong and Hwang Bo, but still we can see how lovely there are... I don't really care what the result show about the Idol... maybe because I'm more interested on what Hyun Joong and Hwang Bo did together... it seems like both of them has lost the awkwardness slowly and now they can hug and talk without worrying much. Which is mean that's great... 

Marco and Dambi is looking for each other weaknesses, and there is no need to list down what weaknesses Marco has but Dambi... hmm so she's not good in cooking and she remind us to Solbi... it's true then that the beauty will failed the cooking... it's not something that need to be concern about for me the important thing is can Marco accept the weaknesses and tolerate with it like Dambi tolerate with his weaknesses... still need to wait... 

And finally my favorite  couple... Alex and Shinae, so the envelope has change... means they are leaving and there is no way we gonna see their loveliness again... gonna miss them a lot... they baked cookies, wrapping a present and preparing the mini theater for their fan... they argue about the flowerpot, the pictures and yet they still look beautiful and perfect for each other. Can't say much about them just need to watch their farewell party next week...

* I just have this in my mind... I just hope the Joongbo couple have to spend their time together just the 2 of them a lot... but it seems to me that the Idol part will still go on until next week. Gonna miss Alshin couple...

We Got Married Episode 32

I guess after several month watching them, there is something that change in every person. In Young tolerate more and look sweet nowadays... she use to argue on whatever things Crown J says or do. Maybe because Hyun Don is around so the tempered all thrown to him and she need Crown J to be by her side so I guess with Hyun Don around Crown J is safe at least from In Young tantrum ^_^.

Hyun Joong look matured in every episode... I guess his SS members really stated it right, Hyun Joong really look more like Hwang Bo... or maybe Hwang Bo look like Hyun Joong the personalities I mean... they really captured everyone attention. The jealousy, the conservative Hyun Joong... the beutiful and kind hearted Hwang Bo everything seems perfect for them.

Alex & Shinae is sweet as always and thats a good news... I really think Alex thinks only the best for Shinae and e really meant it when he says he's one of those people who want her to be strong. Alex really know what Shinae thinks even when she didn't say it or show it... it was sad that they will be parted soon T T

Hwanhee & Hwayobi, hmmm this couple is getting my attention lately. Hwanhee is really like someone I know... Harsh words doesn't mean his bad, he really take a good care of Hwayobi... Hwayobi, well she still need sometimes to find out more about Hwanhee, she seems like thinking that whatever things Hwanhee do or say just to make her feel good... well thats normal of coz, you won't believe it right away though... but this couple really cool.

And lastly, Marco & Dambi. This couple is full with emotion, Marco seems so childish and Dambi are so motherly... actually without realizing it both of them really suit well. There is no way any women can handle how Marco's act, he's stubborn, selfish, nice but childish... who would like to have a partner like that? but I guess man is always a man, they don't let you know what they feel or what they think. Dambi still can smile when Marco show up with the rabbit head... that's mean she really know that Marco didn't mean whatever things he says and do... well at least that's what I guess... but man... believe me if you acted like that you'll suffered all your life... 

Can't wait for the episode 33 translation... at this moment all that I know Hyun Joong & Hwang Bo have a lot of skin ship lately... haven't watch the whole episode yet but it seems great.

* This is what I really think and feel about this movie... since I just got back from the cinema and the feeling is still fresh so I believe what I write is what I really feel and think...

1st I think it was boring, but it's not that bad... just not as what I'm aspecting it would be. The opening is really great... The ritual really meant something in Thailand so I'm not gonna comment on that... well even if I say it was boring but still the cast and the concept was great. It's a horror movie so of coz there is some parts that bring the chilled and some people do scream in the cinema which add the thrill feeling even when it's not really supposed to be feel like that.

 This is not listed in my so cool and top rated horror movie, and that's mean I'm not gonna suggest this movie if you're looking for a keep moving chill and thriller kind of story. But if you're a person who watch not just using your eyes but bring along your feelings and brain... then watch for it coz there is something they want us to learn... 

 The beauty of life and death... to teach us that fate is something that we have to accept when it's happened and move on and try to turn the bitter to sweet while facing the fact... not running and avoiding it coz life meant nothing without death.
