It is said that time is equal to everyone but things are different to Suryeon who turns 30. She doesn´t have much time to live. Her dad died from disease when she was young. She expects the same path.

  • Review

    Suryeon, who will soon turn 30, doesn’t have much time to live. When she was young, her dad died from a disease. She expects the same fate. Though she fell into despair at first, she decides to accept her fate and gets herself ready for the end. Then a 26-year-old guy comes into her life and tries to start a new life with her.
    Lim’s debut feature Autumn Sonata has typical melodramatic plots, but it delicately and impressively depicts the strokes of daily living with the support of veteran actors, Lim Hyun-shik and Song Ok-sook. Gwon BoA fits well to the main character with healthy, bright vibes while the death awaits her. While following the storyline in conservative pace, it also breathes a different air. Though it seems like a one-act drama on TV, the capacity of the screen that holds more than what the character says expands the story’s scope. [KIM Youngjin]
