So, while still in movie mode, checked out Gong Yoo and Jeon Do Yeon, in the 2016 movie “A Man and a Woman.” These two have special needs children, her a son, and him a daughter, and they meet in Finland, while dropping their children off to a bus trip to a special needs camp. Both are guarded, but highly protective of their children, so they decide to go to the camp themselves for piece of mind. When they reach their destination, they feel better and go off to share a meal. A snow storm ensues, and they spend the night, in separate rooms of course, until the storm blows over.
The next morning, they decide to take a walk, (the snow has stopped) and they end up in a small spa house in the woods. You can tell that both have been dealing with a lot where their children are concerned, and later we find out that there’s more to the story whereas they are both married to spouses with other issues. They end up making love, and part ways.
Eight months later, they meet again in Korea, and the love affair takes off. It almost seems “desperate” and “stalkerish” on Gong Yoo’s part, but as they get in deeper and deeper, the feelings are reciprocated on the heroine’s part too. They eventually want to take off together, but both are too committed to their children, and their marital situations as well. The sadness in their eyes and their beings, as realization of their situations set in more and more broke my heart for them. Worth the watch though, cause Gong Yoo is always worth it to me, lol. Also nice to see Jeon and Yoon Se Ah (aka “Ghost”) from LIP share the screen again…..
