My Favourite Old School Korean Song (심장에 남는 사람)

Even after spending many years together, there are those who are forgotten. Even through a brief encounter, there are those who remain forever in one’s heart.

I guess even South Korea had a time where they made good music.

Correct me if I am wrong, but isn’t this song from a North Korean movie?

I like this movie. The main character wants to move to an apartment but her grandma loves the “smell of the earth” so the family continues to live in an old country house. There is also more to the story :)

FILM SIXTEEN: Pulgasari, 1985-North Korea. (dir. Shin Sang Ok)

Cast: Hui Chang Son, Sop Ham Gi, Ri Jong Uk, Kenpachiro Satsuma

THIS IS ACTUALLY THE FIRST NORTH KOREAN FILM I’VE EVER SEEN. ATYPICAL OF NORTH KOREAN FILMS, THE FILM DOESN’T SPOON FEED AUDIENCES OF JUCHE IDEOLOGY. INSTEAD, IT UTILIZES THE MARXIST THEORY AS A BACKBONE OF THE STORY, TELLING VIEWERS HOW CAPITALISM CAN ACTUALLY BENEFIT PEOPLE BUT CAN ALSO DO MORE HARM IN THE LONG RUN. A SECOND-RATE GODZILLA? I DON’T THINK SO. THIS IS A GOOD FILM, AFTER ALL.
