Businesswoman Yu Rim (Kang Soo Yeon) focuses both on her love life and career. When she meets photographer Ho Seok (Ahn Sung Kee), love starts to spark. However, their point of views about their lives and projects are totally different. They can’t seem to stay apart from each other. Ho Seok goes to Italy to study but Yu Rim can’t get him out of her mind.

I’m going to keep this short and simple. Why? That’s because, probably maybe because of my age, I don’t get this film at all. It’s very confusing and I did zone off a bit while I was watching the film. The scenes moved from one place to another which makes me want to crack my head on what the story is telling. Besides that, the relationship between Yu Rim and Ho Seok is so complicated. I get that they don’t get along each other and there is the push and pull relationship. They love and then they fight. Then, they love again and they fight again. It just goes on and on. Also, it is too complicated when they converse among each other. I don’t feel the chemistry between those two main actors.

Looking at the bright side, I sort of understand what the colours represent: blue equals to sorrow and yellow equals to happiness. What do you think? When they talk about love, it is meaningful and applied to our understanding on the meaning of love.

Overall, in this film, I’ve tried to put the puzzle pieces together so that I can understand the whole picture. This means I will probably re-watch it again. However, I don’t know whether I want to watch this again. I think that for the audiences who are in their 40s and above, I’m sure they will get the meaning of this film. For those who are into the old classic love 90s film, go for it. But, for me, it’s not my cup of tea.

Rating: 3/10
