Program Note
One winter day, a man and a woman meet after 25 years by chance encounter at Incheon Airport. She was visiting Korea to see her mother who has Alzheimer’s disease, and he was seeing off his daughter on her way to study in Australia. One week after the disordered encounter, they meet again over lunch, spending some time together. Neither of them shows their true self, but they reveal leftover sentiments for each other, both feeling a romantic thrill and confusion at the same time. Old Love is a melodrama about middle aged old flames, but it doesn’t indulge in the fantasy end of the genre. Rather, it is more about showing the process of how a fantasy breaks. They revisit Gangchon where they had met in their old college days, trying to recall the youthful feelings of that time. However, the reality is already too harsh for both of them. What they feel instead is a deep-rooted tiredness with life, having a friend who is in the final phase of cancer, financial difficulties due to business failure, divorce, separation by death, so on and so forth. Those blazing flames of love only exist in their memories.(NAM Dong-chul)
