Comments: There are problems with this film by CHRISTMAS IN AUGUST and ONE FINE SPRING DAY director Jin-ho Hur ... virgin purity with terminal disease falls for stereotype hard-drinking jerkball guy and dies happy 'cause he's there at her deathbed ... but it's engaging, well shot and well acted.

Summary: When stricken with a terminal disease, Young-su leaves his careless high life in the city, live-in girlfriend and dwindling business. He retreats to a sanatorium in the countryside in order to treat his illness, where he meets a young woman who is a resident patient there.

Soon they develop feelings for each other and leave the sanatorium together to live in a small but cozy farm house. Their health improves dramatically but when Young-su's friends from the city come for a visit, he starts to wonder if he should abandon mundane rural village life and return to his former lifestyle.
