People’s happiness is equivalent to how thankful they are.
It’s been a long time since I have written a review about a movie I have watched or a book or even TV series. It’s been a long time and I have been so idle these past few weeks thinking what to write.
I started checking on movies and Korean dramas. Then this short drama (7 episodes) called “9 Seconds, Eternal Time” caught my attention. I watched it and at the end of the drama, I somehow regret why I watched it in the first place. Not because it’s not good but because I am craving for more.
Genre: Fantasy, Melodrama
Cast: Lee Joo Seung as Kang Yoo Chan; Na Hae Ryung as Yoo So Ra; Fujii Mina as Mi Na
Yoo So Ra is a transferee from Seoul and being new to the school, she doesn’t talk too much. She has a neighbor and his name is Kang Yoo Chan, his window is aligned to hers and on her first night in their house, Yoo Chan took a picture of her. She went to the same school as Yoo Chan but she discovered that Yoo Chan has been dropped out of school for a certain personal reason. They got along with each other like normal people do because they shared the same characteristics and interest. One day, when they are at a photo studio, they discover a camera that has an ability to stop time. At first, the camera seems like it’s just not functioning well, but when they both experience how it stops time, they left it for a while.
Yoo Chan has a rare case of the disease in his eyes and he’ll soon go blind and they can do nothing about it. So they decided to use the camera to take all the pictures they can take when they are still together. They started taking pictures in different places together until one day when they are going home, something happened that forced Yoo Chan to use the camera again. Starting that day, it begins to take on a whole new meaning as they face hardships in their relationship with each other and with their loved ones.
All in all, the story really goes well. Well – it sorts of a cliff-hanger but yes, that makes the viewer crave for more. The only thing that upsets me is that I don’t know if there’s a sequel to it or I am just waiting for nothing like Yoo Chan.
Until now, I still can’t move on. Why, So Ra? Why do you have to stay that way?
