I am so lucky to be following quite a number of people who also enjoy K-movies and dramas. This movie was reviewed in one and I was quite intrigued by the introduction that I skipped the whole review (it was pretty detailed and I didn’t want spoilers) and decided to give it a go.

Doo-Sik (Cho Jung-Seok) is in prison for fraud. His younger step-brother Doo-Young (Do Kyung-Soo) is a promising judo athlete, but an injury during a competitive match causes Doo-Young to lose his eyesight. Doo-Sik appears in front of the parole board and uses his step-brother’s injury to plead for his release. Doo-Sik gets his release on the condition that he takes care of Doo-Young for 1 year.

Doo-Young lives alone in his family’s home. Both of his parents passed away. Since losing his eyesight, Doo-Young has shut himself away from the world. His former judo coach Soo-Hyun (Park Shin-Hye) is the only one that still keeps in contact with Doo-Young. After 15 years, Doo-Sik suddenly appears back at home and the two brothers begin to live together again .. even though they hate each other. – AsianWiki

This movie is classified as a comedy but be warned. It’s not purely comedy. It is a perfect mix of comedy and drama. It’s honestly just a story about brothers who grew apart and is reconnecting because of an unfortunate accident in their lives. Even if the plot is pretty straight forward, I love how all the small details make it so beautiful and enjoyable to watch.

I don’t plan to spoil you with all the drama in it but be warned I teared up a little because it hit my soft spot. I enjoyed watching this movie because it shares a great lesson about family. I’m a sucker for these kinds of movies. I do, however, wish that the plot wasn’t as predictable as it was. It was easy to tell what was going to happen and it kind of made my viewing pleasure lessen a tad bit. As they say, you can’t have it all.

If you want a quick comedy/drama watch, I highly recommend this movie. You get a good dose of Cho Jung Seok and Do Kyung Soo both of whom are very easy on the eyes and you also get a Park Shin Hye in it. It also reminds its viewers of the lesson that family should and will always be number one in our lives. It shares this lesson in a painful and somehow regretful way.
