- An orphan story with a twist
Hello, I’m trying to find a Korean movie my daughter watched. It’s about a young girl in an orphanage who is sick. She has a picture of a man who is supposed to be her father. A social worker or woman who works at the orphanage starts looking for the girl’s father. He is some type of low-level criminal or gangster. Turns out he is losing his eyesight. He eventually finds out about her illness and in the end the little girl dies and donates her eyes to him. He in turn starts to work with children at an orphanage. There is a twist though — because I don’t think he was really the little girl’s father; it seems the social worker had a picture of him and wrote the girl’s name on the back. At the end of the movie the social worker has a picture of a different man and randomly writes down the name of a child at the orphanage. Does anyone know the name of this movie?
- Gambler loses it
Online. Somehow in Korean, no English subtitles. I watched it anyway. (I am a K-drama freak, just love it!) All I can tell from the two-sentence blurb attached to it is that it says “new drama,” something about Shik Dwong (director), and “the top tower”? So far it is about a guy working for a guy who lends money to gamble playing Go-Stop, and the guy makes tons of money for the lender until he is scammed by a beautiful woman and loses it all and gets the tar beat out of him, etc etc.
Any ideas? Thanks.
- Waiting for a better time
I was recently rewatching When A Snail Falls in Love, and I was waiting for one particular scene, but it never came. Now I realize I had mixed up that scene, and now I don’t know what drama it came from. I cannot figure it out, and it’s driving me crazy.
So, here’s what I can remember about this scene: The main couple are cops, and they are in some other land on a mission that’s pretty dangerous. Something big has just happened (someone died?), and they’re in her motel room going over the case. Well, one thing leads to another, and before you know it they’re in this huge big bed with the sheet pulled up over them, and the camera is right there. It’s pretty hot and heavy for a minute, and then the man stops them by saying that their first time together shouldn’t be in this kind of situation. He gets up, and I think he tucks her in (maybe?). But shortly afterward, someone alerts them that something is happening, and he or maybe they have to rush out.
That’s all I can remember. Can anyone help? Thank you!
- Granddad is a shipper
There’s a drama that I watched snippets of — my older sister was watching it, and I used to watch with her sometimes. She can’t remember this drama either. As far as I remember about the plot, the main leads were in high school and were quite rich, and I think had a purple uniform. They were going out with each other but they didn’t want their granddad-like figure (?) to find out. But this granddad WANTED them to be together for an inheritance (?) which they didn’t want the responsibility of. So he got their servants to try and sneak evidence of them going out. I remember this scene when they were in a shopping mall and kissed in a changing room but the servant was too slow to take the pic.
Please tell me this is not something I just dreamed of lol. Thanks!
- A free TV!
I think I watched this drama just a few years back but I don’t remember when the drama was released because I just got into the K-drama world four years ago. XD
So what I remember is that the two leads go to some kind of an old house. I think the people there help them or something… and then the next day a big box comes and it turns out to be a television or washing machine (but I think it’s a TV). And they said thank you to the people and left. What’s important is the male lead is rich. That’s why they repaid the people who helped them with an expensive TV.
Thanks for playing, everyone — till next time!
