404 Not Found
Korean Web Film / Drama (2017)
Grade: B+
Review by Jill, USA

~~~~~~~~~~~~
A poignant but very short Korean film / web drama from 2017, 404 Not Found, lasts only about twenty-eight minutes long, but packs a powerful emotional punch nevertheless. As I watched it I kept being reminded of the Japanese anime film classic 5 Centimeters Per Second from Makoto Shinkai. It has a similar kind of ambiance where a young man in adulthood can't forget his first love. Korea abounds with stories like this one too, in their dramas and films both, but here the two teenagers have even a shorter period of time to be together in their youth than all those other stories. 

Starring young actors Samuel and Ahn Seo Hyun, who both appeared in Revenge Note 2 K-drama together, it tells the story of two high school students who have two things in common: one, they both love the Korean female singer Lee Sang Eun (though both prefer two different songs of hers as their favorites), and two, they both originally came from the city of Daegu. There is actually a THIRD circumstance they have in common, but that plot twist is only revealed near the end of the story, so you'll have to watch and find out for yourselves what that is. No spoilers here!


Enjoy this bittersweet but gentle love story.

The two Lee Sang Eun songs the characters liked best.
