Origin and release year: South Korea (2019)
Tune in for Love is one of the best romance drama films I have seen in a while.
It is about two people who meet during the IMF crisis and fall in love. They continue to cross paths but keep missing each other as time isn’t on their side.
It was sentimental but not over done, tension-filled but not overdramatic with unnecessary push and pulls.
Kim Go Eun and Jung Hae In made the perfect couple, visually and through their convincing acting.
I appreciated how the drama depicted the realities of life and didn’t try to sell us a fairytale. It was a slice-of-life film glittered with hope.
I also absolutely loved Kim Gook Hee’s character, although I felt like I wanted to explore more about her and how she ended up married to her husband.
The Original Soundtrack for this film was also exceptional and I loved how it added to the nostalgia from each year that the drama took us through.
I was a bit conflicted about how Kim Go Eun’s character reacted to Jung Hae In’s trauma when she eventually had to face it straight on.
Her reaction was quite frankly insensitive and self-centered. It would’ve been a dealbreaker for a lot of people. However, I found myself still falling for their love story and rejoicing when they got back together. I guess that is the powerful of a well-told love story. It gives you the ability to forgive anything.
I tend to say things are a feel-good watch but this film will honestly make you feel warm and fuzzy inside at the prospect of fated love.
