I found this Korean movie—Bungee Jumping of Their Own (2001)— and in the synopsis was the word “soulmates”. This must be a love story—Jaycelle and I will watch this together, I thought. It’s captivating—just like all the other Korean love stories that I’ve watched before—there’s always something that either you will relate to or reminisce about.
As the big reveal unfolded I was kinda wishing that it will be for closure between Seo In-woo and In Tae-hee—even friendship between a teacher and a student. But it’s not. It keeps going to the point of spirit possession and selfishness.
How important is the life of a human being? Or should I mention specifically: the spirit of the first inhabitant of a particular body? It seems like In Tae-hee resurfaced and took over the poor boy’s totality—till the end.
I may never fully understand how it feels to not get over a great love and going on with life even with harrowed past. If suddenly you had the chance to make things right, would you take the easy way out? While smiling? And looking into the future? How about those who were left behind with so many questions in their minds?
Reincarnation—for the sake of consistency in the movie—I might understand it if it was first established that the original characters, were in fact, reincarnations themselves. So what if Seo In-woo and In Tae-hee were both born girls in the next reincarnation? Will they again bring to naught the lives of the first inhabitant of those bodies?
