The scars we get during our childhood accompany us to our adulthood. It might be something manageable, it might be something unbearable but there’s always something there, which is why adults should be more responsible towards their decisions, actions and words…
A mother that won’t leave her husband and lets the man beat her children and herself…
A mother that finds solace in a lover because her husband has become a burden, not a comfort…
Children learn to deal with their situations from what they see and interpret…
A man that was broken but didn’t feel he had a way out… A woman that couldn’t let herself be loved because physical love felt fake… They meet and become the sparks that begin the healing process in each other’s minds and hearts. Their love is daring, comforting and a blessing. But love is never enough and that’s where friends come along. Those unconditional people that love us and do whatever needs to be done in order to make things alright. Jae Yeol and Hae Soo had great friends that supported them through the difficulties and the happy times.
This story is about love and healing the child within that haunt us and won’t let us move on and be happy. A love story that shows that mental illness is no impediment to give and receive love.
The end left me wondering what happened. What had been her answer to his question? It seemed like she had decided to stay on her own with her daughter, but then he joined them at the beach. Were they dating or just friends?
It is a sad story, not just because people are so ignorant to hurt a little girl because she’s a HIV carrier, but because Boma’s grandmother refused to admit the little girl was her granddaughter and because her father rather be just her friend’s uncle than be her father.
Mr. Lee’s “thank you” farewell brought tears to my eyes.
So Ra, the nurse, just drove me crazy! What kind of nurse cries and gives up when facing an emergency?!
In the end the community accepted Boma and her mother. And I think it had a lot to do with Mr. Lee’s way o thanking them as he got ready to join his son.
Ki Suk became a better doctor as he became part of the Blue Island community. And I like to think that he stayed. Maybe Young Shin wasn’t ready for a relationship but I don’t think she really wanted him out of her life.
If Young Shin and Boma were a miracle to Ki Suk, he was a miracle to them.
