I hope you guys like my hair (i live on validation tbh). I was going for a much paler version of this pink but this was a diy by my friend so I guess amateurish pink ombre is all i get. I got this particular dye from etsy from the seller lunar tides hair, and I 100% recommend them. They are very conditioning and has a good colour payoff. This was supposed to be pastel pink but my bleach was not done satisfyingly and I relied mostly on the purple toner I got from amazon. Considering how my after-bleach hair was still very yellow I appreciate the colour still looking pink but obviously i'm hoping the colour fades to a much lighter shade of this. The amount of self-induced anxiety and two pinboards of hair inspirations later I'm exhausted and I don't know.. it's only hair you know, why do I put myself under so much emotional stress over hair stuff I have no idea. I'm ridiculous.

Han Gong-ju is foremost a tragedy. Despite it's rather extreme issues, there is a sense of desperate honesty in the movie which is beautifully crafted and makes for a haunting coming of age story, that will continue to follow you once you've ventured back out into the real world. no joke.
There are many movies that tackles with sex/violence on screen and seems too easy. What's challenging is capturing the psychological profundity an extreme synthesis of these urges can have on an abandoned soul. This is that film.
I really hope you have the heart and the stomach to watch this. It has little to no dramatic flair but I bawled my eyes out at the end of it. Kudos to the director for managing the story so well and staying true to his own perspective of the issue.
