Learn to Forgive and Faithful
Two things that’s probably the message in this movie. At the beginning, this film tells the meeting and the proximity of Su-Jin and Ceol-Su. It feels a bit loose and dull, but fairly gives two figures strongly. Su-Jin is a plain woman, innocent, yet easy fragile. From the beginning, he was seen often forget the little things, like forgetting to bring a pencil and forget the way home. While Ceol-Su, is a construction worker who was cold and hard. Although, unexpectedly, he finally could cry when I saw Su-Jin who are beginning to know her.
The father has an important role in conveying the message that forgiveness is not as difficult as imagined.
Then where the message forgive that? That is illustrated in the figure of the father Su-Jin. First, he should be able to forgive his own girl who was “damaging” the family name. “To forget things easily is a blessing. Leave all your mistakes and start something new, “said the father with wisdom. After that, he must be willing to “forgive” her already in love with Ceol-Su. In fact, before the father did not like it because Ceol-Su is considered the workhorse of the head.
It was exactly the push Su-Jin to continue encouraging Ceol-Su as she hated her mother. His mother had to remove it, is now languishing in jail. It can only be free if no ransom. Su-Jin-Su hope Ceol cancel build a house of his savings and better freeing his mother. “Forgiveness is not that difficult. Forgiveness is giving a little place in your heart. Forgiveness is giving little space on hatred, “said Su-Jin.
After marriage Ceol-Su and Su-Jin, the film is the conflict actually began subtly and began to provoke emotion. How not, the audience is upset because the verdict Su-Jin diseases that are quite striking, but still realistic. Indirectly, we will be invited to learn patience and fidelity of the Ceol-Su, blue-collar workers who turned out to have courage, gentleness, and especially loyalty. You can imagine, when the family wanted to take care of Su-Jin and invited Ceol-Su to be free, he still insisted on caring for his wife, who even has forgotten about him.
