Dong Won Kang stars with Na-yeong Lee as the female lead in this Korean 2006 film titled Urideul-ui haengbok-han shigan in Korean about forgiving.  Na yeong Lee’s character has a secret that is revealed late in the movie that makes her hate her mom & life.  This pain and hatred helps her relate with Kang Dong Won’s (the surnames are usually first in Korea) character who is painfully struggling with a crime he was accused of committing.  I’ve seen some good Korean flicks lately … so this doesn’t rank up there as the best, but worth a watch.

p.s. “Maundy” means “the ceremony of washing the feet of the poor, esp. commemorating Jesus’ washing of His disciples’ feet on Maundy Thursday” if you were curious like me.

    This is one of my fav. Korean movies.
    I wonder what does the Korean title “Urideul-Ui Haengbok-Han Shigan” mean in English? 🙂

  2. It means “Our Happy Times”, I believe…
