OSTrich Mondays #2
Recently i watched the 2004 drama I’m Sorry, I Love You with Im Su Jeong, So Ji Sub and Jung Kyung Ho among others and i remembered how beautiful older dramas are. They might not be perfect, but they hold another aesthetic, let’s say they have a more innocent aura, a purity of emotion. And all of a sudden i remembered the Endless Love quartet, one emotional operetta for every season: Autumn in my Heart (2000), Winter Sonata (2002), Spring Waltz (2006) and Summer Scent (2003). They were among the first South Korean dramas i watched and they will always hold a special place in my heart.
I hope soon enough, around the middle of February, to start watching older dramas i have in my mind for some time now. Dramas like Honesty (2000), Beautiful Days (2001), Stairway to Heaven (2003), Sandglass (1995), Sad Love Story (2005), Whatever Happened in Bali (2004) and such. I suppose these dramas are milestones for the romance/drama genre of nowadays dramas and they played their important role back then. Cinematography might lack a bit at some aspects due to the fact that most of them were released at least ten years ago, but the ambiance they convey will still be alive and that’s all that matters, right?

It paces really well with the 80s South Korean music that i highly enjoy. I personally consider Cho Yong Pil as one of the most emblematic figures ever, his emotional interpretation is insuperable. But enough with all that, here’s the song:
