Awkward! A really awkward title and you don’t need to be a native speaker to know that something’s wrong with it. “A Sad Story Than Sadness” is the English title of the new Kwon Sang Woo and Lee Bo Young (definitely not the LBY of English schools) movie that will open on March 12th, two days before White Day.
I saw the trailer of this movie yesterday, while watching “Old Partner” at CGV Yongsan. I saw the music video today while waiting at the doctor’s office. And I thought that only a masochist would want to see this film. How sad can a story get if it’s sadder than sadness itself? The Korean title is “슬픔보다 더 슬픈 이야기” (seul-peum boda deo seul-peun iyagi). It’s obviously a love triangle story with a sprinkling of accident, cancer, and lots of tears.
When was the last time I saw Kwon Sang Woo in a movie or a TV show? Was it in Sad Love Story? Stairway to Heaven?
Here’s the website of A Sad Story Than Sadness.
