I met my friends last Saturday afternoon and it was nice to talk to them and hear stories about what’s going on in their lives. I have written about my friend Jasmine before. She told us about her role as an extra in an upcoming Korean-Japanese movie. The movie is being directed by Lee Jae Han who gave us “Eraser In My Head” (aka A Moment to Remember) starring Jung Woo Sung and Son Ye Jin.
When Jasmine told us this, I had to watch the movie “Eraser in my head” again. In the film, the rich Son Ye Jin and the poor Jung Woo Sung fell in love and got married 🙂 (typical?) Soon after the got married, Son Ye Jin started showing dementia symptoms. All along, I thought that only old people can suffer from this disease.
The events in the movie prompted me to find out more about the disease. I don’t know anybody who currently has the disease but understanding dementia became a concern after seeing the film. I have found some information from Dementia Guide. It has all the information about the disease, its symptoms, and how can caregivers track the disease. I also learned that there is dementia treatment available.
I enjoyed the movie although it’s a little bit long. Most of all, I became aware of something that I’d never really given much thought before.
