One of my past times is watching Korean movies. I find that they usually have a unique plot that pulls your heartstrings like no other.
Recently, I came across the movie Blind (블라인드) because I really like Park Bogum. He’s done numerous films and TV series, and I really love the way he acts. Although he only had a minor role in this film, I still liked it.
The story revolves around Min Soo-ah, played by Kim Haneul, a promising cadet in the police academy, until she met an accident that rendered her blind. One day, she became a witness to a hit-and-run case, which is also related to the missing women that the police force is trying to solve. That started all the chaos in her life.
She owns a guide dog named “Seulki”, and he was such an adorable dog-actor. There were so many scenes that made me go Aww…, and scenes that made me cry.
Yoo Seung-ho is the main actor of the movie. A really good actor that played a huge part in solving the case.
The movie kept me glued to the screen, as there were so many parts where I screamed, “Run! Faster! Oh my goodness!”
I love the fact that Min Soo-ah wasn’t a damsel in distress. Even though she is blind, she didn’t make it a weakness. I love how they made it one of her strong points. I love that they wrote her character as someone smart, and not whiny. The female lead wasn’t a super woman in the film. Her role made me believe that the things that happened in the movie can happen in real life.
Overall, the movie is worth watching. It evoked different emotions in me, which is my standard in giving a good rating to movies I watch. However, there are trigger-warnings in the movie, so please watch with caution if you’re sensitive to abuse and some violence.
