Movie Info

A young girl posing as an experienced teacher answers the letters of a grieving man who recently lost his beloved wife in this romantic drama starring My Sassy Girl actress Jeon Ji-Hyeon. Jung-Min has begun a correspondence with a young army soldier named Hyun-jun. Though Jung-Min is merely a young girl, in the letters she portrays herself as a worldly teacher with the wisdom of a woman twice her age. As Jung-Min turns twenty, a man ten years her senior moves into her village. His heart heavy with sadness and sorrow, the grieving widower sends letters to his deceased wife on the wings of a carrier pigeon nightly, knowing well that he will never receive a reply. One day, much to the man's surprise, a reply does come. It seems there is another lost soul in this village who carries as much misery as he, and soon these two will meet - if not by sheer chance, then by fate.

Audience Reviews for White Valentine

I'd describe this film as being pleasantly predictable. It certainly is if you have seen many Korean romances. It's one of those romantic films that relies on coincidences, but these coincidences tend to make you go "AWWWW" as opposed to rolling your eyes. The characters are well built and all have interesting qualities. The film takes it's time in building up a relationship and then just sort of throws an ending together. I'd describe it as "soft". It doesn't demand too much of you and it hands out some emotions without being too cheesy, melodramatic or exhausting.
