Endless Love is the unofficial title of a season-themed tetralogy by KBS in the year of 2000; wherein, Autumn in My Heart belongs in. Followed by Winter Sonata, Summer Scent, and Spring Waltz. Many fans considered this drama as the bridge to the launch of Korean Wave because of its success.
The drama’s greatness
If there will be a competition with regards to which Korean drama is the saddest one but worth re-watching; then the winner would be the Autumn in My Heart. Although this series will make you feel the heavy pain, yet it cannot be denied that it will also make you fall in love.
In a matter of fact, my mom is a huge fan of this K-drama especially its main character—Song Hye Kyo. She kept on telling me years before that Jenny is the most beautiful Korean she has known. In addition, before Descendants of the Sun was shown in Philippine television; my mom always talks about Jenny being the best actress. Of course, as a curious child I was, I tried to look after Song Hye Kyo’s name online.
Through my mom’s introduction of Autumn in My Heart to me, I became much familiar with the beauty in bitter sweet taste of past dramas. Despite the truth that Autumn in My Heart have shattered our hearts into pieces, there’s no doubt that this is such a masterpiece. Consequently, what makes the series much attractive is the fact that it included slice of life events. It’s content was just so superb which made me feel like I was involved with the conflict and pain of the characters. For me, almost half of the story is saddening, and when I asked my mom she said; “The saddest part is when Eun Suh found out that she has a terminal illness. She cried so hard every time she underwent chemotherapy. Until she died and so Joon Suh.”
Moreover, the flow of the story isn’t forced at all, same with the characters’ acting skills; which is truly exceptionally. Additionally, as a viewer, I couldn’t even blame or hate someone here; I even felt so bad when anybody was in pain. Despite the fact that I questioned why does Eun Suh tried to hide her illness from Joon Suh, and many more moments; how things were constructed aren’t flawed.
The ending is tragedy yet how it has been delivered is fine. Truthfully, the way how an intense plot twist took its entrance in the story is astonishing. All in all, Autumn in My Heart is worthy to be recommended and talked about with other Hallyu fans.
