On Your Wedding Day
The story of the man who receives a wedding invitation from his first love that he met in high school. It starts off pretty innocent and simple with an highschool romance, a bit silly even but as time goes on and the characters grow up the movie keeps up with the pace and that was an amazing work on the part of both main characters and the director. This is yet another well crafted, well scripted, character developed movie that is nothing short of amazing. Kim Young-kwang is so captivating, he steals the show! The motifs are strong, and relate-able: unrealized potential, unrequited love, bad timing, regret , yet coupled with hope, dreams, passion, and what to fight for… It really is a beautiful movie…
