Of course you do! It’s that incredible relationship between Eun-joo and Sung-hyun and their time travelling letters. Sung-hyun buys a house by the sea, “Il Mare”. He finds an abandoned Christmas card in the mailbox. It was written by Sung-hyun before she moved out. But the card is dated two years in the future. They realize that they live in different times and can communicating through the mailbox. In spite of everything, they will do whatever it takes to meet each other… A little jewel of fantastic sweetness which will get its Hollywood remake five years later with Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullock.
